Gaetz Abruptly Ends Press Conference As Reporter Asks Him: ‘Are You A Pedophile?’

On Tuesday, as the first day of hearings began for the House Select Committee on January 6, a group of four Republican lawmakers decided they’d go to the Department of Justice building and protest the treatment of people arrested following the Capitol insurrection, whom they claim are “political prisoners.”

In attendance were Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA), Matt Gaetz (FL), Louie Gohmert (Texas), and Paul Gosar (AZ), The Hill reports:

“(Greene, Gaetz, Gohmert, and Gosar) were holding a news conference outside the DOJ to protest the treatment of individuals arrested in connection to the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, when counterprotesters arrived on the scene.

“One protester repeatedly blew a whistle during the event, and other demonstrators were holding signs that read ‘Jan 6th was an inside job, vets for democrats’ and ‘Traitors + Rapists: Sit Down,’ the latter likely referring to Gaetz, who is under investigation for an alleged sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl.”

The counterprotests were so loud and raucous that at one point a man announced:

“The left is interrupting the press conference, we need to end it.”

As the crowd was dispersing, a reporter repeatedly asked Gaetz:

“Are you a pedophile?”

Gaetz couldn’t walk fast enough to get away from the scene, and the question he was being asked came just hours after his future sister-in-law, Roxanne Luckey, posted a series of videos on TikTok in which she lambasted the Florida congressman, calling him “a literal pedophile.”

Gaetz is currently under federal investigation for allegedly being sexually active with an underage girl he trafficked across state lines, a crime which can carry a penalty of life in prison.

Gaetz, Greene, Gohmert, and Gosar are all trying their best to deflect attention from the fact that many in their party supported and continue to support the domestic terrorists who stormed the Capitol earlier this year. But all the distractions in the world won’t be able to paper over the fact that the current GOP is under the thrall of a monster named Trump and believes violence is more valuable than democracy.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Has On-Air Meltdown As 1/6 Committee Starts: ‘They Want Members Of Congress In Jail!’

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) sounded worried (and guilty) on Tuesday morning as the January 6 Congressional committee began meeting, screeching during an appearance on Real America’s Voice with host Steve Bannon, suggesting that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wants to put members of Congress in jail.

Greene told Bannon:

“The January 6 committee has started and this is [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi’s witch hunt. This is her final vendetta against the president that she hates with a passion. This woman is blind with rage and evil and she’s launching this political attack on all of us.”

And then the Georgia Republican went full paranoiac and claimed she knows that Pelosi wants to destroy her:

“I know for certain, I am one of her main targets. They want members of Congress in jail. And guess who that is?”

Sounds like Greene is worried, and considering that she may have played a role in the Capitol insurrection, she damn well should be.

While she was at it, Greene engaged in some revealing psychological projection, remarking:

“Nancy Pelosi is so warped in her thinking, she wants to put President Trump in jail. She wants to put Kevin McCarthy in jail. She’d like to put me in jail, Jim Jordan, Mo Brooks, Lauren Boebert. She’d like to put us in jail.”

As if that’s not bad enough, Greene also told Bannon that she’s putting together her own Jan. 6 “committee” that will include her and Reps. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and Matt Gaetz (R-FL). Just imagine what a clusterfuck that’ll be!

Here’s Greene wailing and whining like a spoiled child:

Social Media Isn’t Quite Sure What To Make Of Marjorie Taylor Greene’s ‘Hobbit’ Feet

Over the weekend, Reps. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and Marjorie Taylor Greene got punk’d on a California beach when a man walked up and announced that he’d heard the Florida congressman was a pedophile:

But while the video of Gaetz getting made fun of went viral, there’s another debate taking place online regarding that beach scene, and it’s about what some are calling Greene’s “Hobbit” feet, according to the Daily Dot:

“This weekend … Greene, most famous for riling up Twitter users with her conspiratorial claims, found another subset of the internet to set aflame.

“Greene was traipsing around a beach in Southern California with Rep. Matt Gaetz … a state neither of them represents, as part of their America First tour.

“Barefoot.”

The photos set off debate on Twitter, where people were wondering what in the hell happened to Greene’s so-called feet:

But perhaps the best take on Tootsiegate was this:

Congress Coronavirus GOP WTF?!

Asked About Americans Dying Of COVID, Marjorie Taylor Greene Laughs Maniacally

Based on the things she’s said and done since she first announced she would be running for Congress, there are some things we already know about Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA):

  • She’s willfully ignorant
  • She’s a shameless self-promoter
  • She has the common sense of wet burlap
  • She’s fond of conspiracy theories

But based on remarks Greene made Tuesday during a press conference held at her office, we can add another fact to what we know about the Georgia congresswoman: She’s a heartless asshole who doesn’t give two hoots in hell about anyone but herself.

It began when Greene told reporters:

“With 6,000 vax related deaths and many concerning side effects reported, the (COVID-19) vax should be a choice not a mandate for everyone.”

Mediate reports that at Greene’s Tuesday presser, Tim Mitchell of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution asked her:

“Do you feel any responsibility for keeping people in Georgia safe? There are children, skinny people, who have died of coronavirus. Do you feel any responsibility?”

Greene’s response was to begin laughing. Not just a chuckle, mind you, but a genuine maniacal laugh before she finally managed to reply:

“Gee, you crack me up.

“You know what? I think people’s responsibility is their own to read the information, and it’s everywhere.”

Notice how she didn’t actually answer the question? She has no logical answer or fact to provide, so she resorts to a bullshit response that only serves to prove what a foolish and dangerous person she truly is.

Another reporter asked the congresswoman if she had been vaccinated, and Greene began spouting outright nonsense about how the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) prevented her from saying one way or the other on that query:

“(That) is a violation of my HIPAA rights. You see, with HIPAA rights, we don’t have to reveal our medical records and that also involves our vaccine records.”

Not even a little bit true, as Mediate noted:

“Under HIPAA, healthcare providers may not provide medical information about patients to third parties without patient consent. It does not apply to individuals or entities who aren’t healthcare providers. Moreover, it is not a “violation” of the law to ask someone if they have been vaccinated.”

Marjorie Taylor Greene is a waste of flesh and oxygen. She’s also a heartless ghoul with blood on her hands.

GOP Fundraising Group Says It Won’t Give A Dime To ‘Carnival Barkers’ Boebert And Greene

One of the most powerful and influential groups that raises money for female Republicans is making it clear they want no part of the two most controversial members of the House GOP caucus and will not support them financially when they seek reelection to their seats in the 2022 midterm elections.

Business Insider reports that The Value In Electing Women Political Action Committee is proudly supporting every Republican woman currently serving in the House and Senate with the “intentional exception” of Reps. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

VIEWPAC’s executive director Julie Conway explained her group’s thinking and why they are shunning Boebert and Greene:

“While we rightfully celebrate the number of GOP women serving in the House, I’ve always professed quality over quantity. The work of Congress is not a joke or reality show. Our women have fought too hard for too long to be respected and taken seriously as legislators, policy makers and thought leaders. We cannot let this work be erased by individuals who chose to be shameless self-promoters and carnival barkers.

“I think that they would rather draw attention to themselves, and really Marjorie Taylor Greene more than Boebert, but they’re cut from the same cloth.

“There is too much at stake and too many true public servants to allow the noise of the few to overshadow the work of the many.”

The move by VIEWPAC could lead to other groups refusing to raise money for Boebert and Greene. And that might well cause both to struggle for campaign funds as they enter what will likely be a bitter fight for another term in office.

Recently, both Boebert and Greene have managed to embarrass themselves and harm their chances of getting reelected.

During a congressional hearing in June, Boebert was humiliated by Acting White House Budget Director Shalanda Young when the congresswoman asked:

“How long will you be ceding the southern border to the cartels?”

Young replied:

“That’s not a question with an assumption I’m going to assume.”

Greene has been chastised by both Democrats and Republicans for insisting that House mask mandates are analogous to making Jews wear yellow Stars of David during the Holocaust in Nazi Germany.

If we’re lucky, both Boebert and Greene will be one-term losers just like the orange idiot they so ardently worship.
