Matt Gaetz’s criminal scandal hasn’t been in the headlines quite so much of late. But if he ends up indicted and convicted for even a fraction of the things he’s reportedly being investigated for, he’s going to prison for a long time. In the meantime, Gaetz is still trying to paint himself as the real victim. It isn’t working.
Matt Gaetz tweeted this today: President Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr, RudyGiuliani, Steve Bannon, Matt Gaetz – it’s never the meek that they come for. It’s always those who are fighting hard for the America First agenda, and I’ve got a lot of fight left in me.”
That’s cute. But everyone on Gaetz’s list has committed clear-cut felonies, so of course they’re all being targeted. It has nothing to do with politics, partisanship, or who is or is not meek.
White House reporter Brian Karem responded to Matt Gaetz’s tweet and ripped him to pieces: “No son. They’re just after the seditionists, sex traffickers, pedophiles and assorted creeps.”
