Gaetz took such glee in his tweets condemning others for immoral behavior. His wingman Greenberg is about to do some tweeting of his own; tweeting like a birdy to avoid jail time.

Matt has always been a fighter.

Replace fighter with pedophile.

Matt is toast.

Smarm, self-entitlement, and criminal sex trafficking.

AND crickets from the Faux and Former guy crowd.

Wonder how smug he will look at his multi-decade sentencing?

Remember when he came to Congress in a gas mask to make fun of people wearing masks? Yeah. What a complete idiot.

Gaetz is not only a criminal, like many of his GOP colleagues he is a stupid criminal.

It’ll be interesting to see how many of his fellow party men get implicated!!!!

Or the time he committed witness intimidation on Cohen implying that info about Cohen’s mistress would cause his wife to fall into the arms of another man while Cohen was in prison (No such evidence was brought forth.)?

Yeah, that aged well.

WOMEN FOR AMERICA FIRST: It's our pleasure to welcome our next speaker. He is currently under investigation by the FBI for child sex trafficking and the House Ethics Committee for sexual misconduct and illicit drugs. Please give him a big Save America welcome to Rep Matt Gaetz!

Democrats loathe him, his GOP colleagues merely hate his guts.

Expulsion or resignation followed by a salacious trial, a conviction and a multi-decade sentence.

Schadenfreude, indeed.

Adios, amigo.

Gaetz looks like a combination of your worst stereotype of a used car salesman and a huckster religious preacher....

It's like Kenneth Copeland and Benny Hinn got together and somehow had a child...

His conduct, however, is worse than those two examples....

Expect him to go completely off the rails in trying to defend the indefensible...

Somehow Hunter, Hillary, Bigfoot, and The Kraken will get blamed for him dating a 17 year old...and taking her across state lines...

Hopefully his fellow Republicans will allow a full, impartial investigation to be conducted to determine whether his actions have been legal.

Regardless of outcome, Gaetz is one more example of a privileged class brat with zero integrity, just another Floridaman.

Gaetz has not been charged with a crime, has denied any wrongdoing and has sent fundraising appeals that portray him as a victim of a “smear campaign.” He was expected to make a high-profile appearance Friday at former President Donald Trump’s Doral golf club in Miami.

Isn't this instructive....

Cuomo is ostracized by all Dems...

Gaetz is invited to speak to Repubs at Trump's golf course and is vocally defended by "Gym" Jordan...

Quite the contrast...

Well, what can you expect when the party's idol is a self-admitted groper...with 26 sexual harassment/assault allegations...

I probably shouldn't have said, "Adios, amigo." If he plays the GOP victim card right he should be able to blame his actions on liberals and continue to get money from at least a portion of conservatives.

Start out by saying it's a hit job. Mention liberals and the media. Mention that they want you gone because you fight the swamp. You won't be a Congressman anymore, but you should be able to bank a few million dollars from the masses to support your habit.

Oh, and bring up the FBI as an enemy to the American people often and early.

I hope Gaetz learned his lesson about trying to show mercy, support and forgiveness to liberals like Katie Hill and AOC when they were attacked.

do the Andrew Cuomo and just ignore it all. “Let the voters decide”, isn’t it?

Once he is in prison, not sure what elections he will stand for.

Women of America First in prison????

When were Katie Hill or AOC investigated by the FBI exactly?

Women of America guest speaker, seems a little tone deaf. I guess they couldn’t cancel it because that would be cancel culture?

It would appear to be letting the fox loose in the hen house, but apparently Gaetz prefers the eggs.

Cuomo going to prison? Yeah 10 women who filed complaints would likely support that.

the description of the supposed “17 year old” from the media. she was 17 about 6 months earlier, so let’s say she “was” 17 while her age was 18.

not misleading at all.

 (The Daily Beast is not sharing that nickname because the teenager had only turned 18 less than six months before.)

The extreme right wing finds pedophilia acceptable, what a surprise!!!!

Sex trafficking, rape, assault, pedophilia......

The value list of the right wing keeps expanding!!!1

as a recap: its a smear attack that all falls apart once the supposed "girl" is identified as 18 or older.

If the defense were that easy I expect she would have been dragged out by Gaetz on television by now holding her birth certificate. Maybe the Feds have forgotten to check her date of birth. They should get on that, it seems a cornerstone to the case.
