Congress Crime Sex Scandals WTF?!

Gaetz Claims The Charges Against Him Are ‘Falling Like A House Of Cards’ In Bizarre YouTube Video

In a desperate attempt to reframe the narrative regarding allegations that he sexually trafficked underage girls, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) posted a bizarre, rambling, hourlong YouTube video of a show he has dubbed “Firebrand With Matt Gaetz.”

In the video, Gaetz attacks Fox News for refusing to allow him on their network since he was accused of being a sexual predator, but declares that the charges against him “are falling like a house of cards,” which is unusual since no charges have yet been filed in the case.

And then we get the angry rant against Fox News:

“I appreciate the platform Fox News gave me for years. It allowed me to get key information to the country. I have many friends still at Fox News and I enjoy our discussions, whether they’re on-air or off-air.”

Gaetz also says that the reason Fox is no longer on his side is because former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is now on the Fox board of directors:

“Fox News isn’t what it used to be. And it probably has something to do with their corporate board member Paul Ryan.”

The fact that Lou Dobbs was fired from Fox Business is because the former Fox host criticized Ryan, Gatez adds:

“Now that Ryan has concentrated power at Fox News, Lou Dobbs is no longer on air. He can’t guide the populist right away from the invade everywhere, invite everyone version of Republicanism that sells out to K Street and abandons Main Street.”

There’s also a 30-minute interview with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene at the end of Gaetz’s video, which is enough to give you a migraine headache even if you’ve never had one.

Apparently, Gaetz is operating under the delusion that if he talks enough and declares his innocence anytime he has a chance, that will somehow exonerate him.

But the Justice Department doesn’t give a damn how many videos the congressman makes or press conferences he holds. Matt Gaetz is going to be charged with crimes that could send him to prison for the rest of his life, and if he’s found guilty of what he allegedly did, that’s exactly what he deserves.
