function has no attribute

I was watching the tutorial about developing a discord bot with python. At the 27th minute I started to get an error. I searched a lot but I couldn’t find a solution. Please help me to understand the situation here.

My Code is:

import discord
import os
import json
import requests

client = discord.Client()

def get_quote():
    response = requests.get
    json_data = json.loads(response.text)
    quote = json_data[0]["q"] + " -" + json_data[0]["a"]
    return (quote)

async def on_ready():
    print('We have logged in as {0.user}'.format(client))

async def on_message(message):
    if == client.user:

    if message.content.startswith('$inspire'):
        quote = get_quote()

async def on_member_joined(member):
    print(f'{member} has joined to the server')

async def on_member_removed(member):
    print(f'{member} has left the server')'TOKEN'))

And the error code is:

We have logged in as Oath Keeper#5185
Ignoring exception in on_ready
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/opt/virtualenvs/python3/lib/python3.8/site-packages/discord/", line 343, in _run_event
    await coro(*args, **kwargs)
  File "", line 20, in on_ready
  File "", line 12, in get_quote
    json_data = json.loads(response.text)

AttributeError: 'function' object has no attribute 'text'

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).

If you look at the traceback you’ll see where the error is coming from.
On line 12 in the function get_quote you have a problem with

json_data = json.loads(response.text)

The problem is that response is a function and functions do not have an attribute called text, so response.text is invalid.
