Matt Gaetz hits a new low—even for him—and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shuts him down

Matt Gaetz hits a new low—even for him—and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shuts him down

On Wednesday, a clip of Florida man and suspected child sex trafficker Rep. Matt Gaetz speaking with carpetbagger Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene went around the internet. In it, Gaetz said that Rep. Jamie Raskin was “unable” to do his job as a Jan. 6, committee member. Why? Because Rep. Raskin’s son died by suicide. “What I worry about with Raskin, in all seriousness—when people encounter trauma, they often associate a lot of the other things around that trauma with it, even if they don’t naturally or even rationally associate.”

That’s the low point Greene and Gaetz dug to in their attempts to discredit what will likely be a barrage of revelations about how involved they both were in the failed coup d’etat on Jan. 6. Rep. Raskin, for all of the tragedy he has endured, has more integrity in a clipped fingernail than Reps. Gaetz and Greene have in their entire family tree at this point.

On Thursday, in the hours before Rep. Raskin and the Jan. 6 committee brought the case against treasonous Big Lie proponents to the public, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez decided to defend her fellow Congressman and, justifiably, size down the very small person that is Matt Gaetz.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez wrote: “Rep. Raskin is a greater statesman, Congressman, human being than most of us. History will remember him. Tommy was a remarkable person and testament of his parents’ love.”

In comparison, she also wrote: “Gaetz is a bad haircut in a cheap suit, a feat of mediocrity given that he’s here on papa’s money. Bye.”

Godddaaaaammnnnnn! The truth cuts like a knife, don’t it?
