Lauren Boebert is frantically spouting controversial nonsense today because she wants the headlines about her to be about the controversial nonsense she’s spouting, instead of the fact that the FBI just raided the home of her former campaign manager.
Matt Gaetz is frantically spouting controversial nonsense today because he wants the headlines about him to be about the controversial nonsense he’s spouting, instead of the fact that the DOJ just criminally indicted two more people related to the Greenberg-Gaetz probe.
In both instances, we shouldn’t take the bait. This kind of “drown out your real scandal by drumming up a superficial scandal” strategy is straight out of Donald Trump’s playbook, so its not surprising to see it coming from two of the more hideous Trump disciples.
Matt Gaetz is in serious legal trouble and headed toward federal criminal indictment. Lauren Boebert could end up being in serious legal trouble if her former campaign manager ends up flipping on her. Let’s keep our main focus on that when it comes to these deranged clowns. When we let them dictate the narrative, they’re winning. When we make sure the narrative is about their criminal scandals, they’re losing.
