Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) — aka Budweiser Boy — is always eager to defend his political savior, President Donald Trump, but his latest effort to do so didn’t go the way he planned.
Gaetz posted this on Twitter Monday morning:
The Mueller team obstructed way more justice than Trump ever did.

Wow! Reading that tweet a second time, it quickly becomes clear that Gaetz just admitted Trump did indeed obstruct justice. Of course, most of us have known that for some time now. But for one the president’s biggest cheerleaders to let that slip is one hell of a major development.
It didn’t take long before Gaetz was getting mercilessly mocked on social media, and all that was required was quoting him:
What a self-own. It must be 5 o’clock somewhere 🍻

You literally just admitted Trump obstructed justice
Maybe stop tweeting before you confess to treason

I can’t with these idiots. Just a small note @mattgaetz and the rest of the #DeathCult attending #TrumpRally #coronavirus events – “a little” obstruction of justice is JUST AS MUCH a crime as “a lot…” The Criminal law doesn’t have an exception for just a little obstruction.

Nice! Glad we can at least agree that Trump obstructed justice. Some real bipartisanship there!

Aiding and abetting a criminal is a crime. And Gaetz is guilty

See that tweet right there is an obstruction of justice.
How can you just spew lies like that?
Trump obstructs justice on a daily basis.
Every minute of every day.
At least you’re admitting Trump is obstructing justice, it’s a start.

Poor little Matty! He desperately wants to be Trump’s #1 ass monkey, but Bill Barr already has that job locked down.
