Suspected Sex Offender Matt Gaetz Calls Pro-Choice Women ‘Unloved’ Females

According to Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is suspected of having paid minor girls to sleep with him, women who are pro-choice are “unloved” millenials who go home and eat “lonely microwave dinners.”

“How many of the women rallying against overturning Roe are over-educated, under-loved millennials who sadly return from protests to a lonely microwave dinner with their cats, and no bumble matches?”

Wow! Apparently Matt isn’t familiar with the Bible verse which instructs, “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”

Is that you, Matt? Are you sinless? That’s not what the evidence suggests. Let’s take a quick refresher course on the case against Gaetz:

The Post reported that Gaetz used websites to set up dates with women in exchange for dinners or hotel stays. Those sites are legal, unless it strays into the territory of prostitution, where money is explicitly exchanged for sex.

The Daily Beast has reported that the money trail suggests that Gaetz paid for sex with women. In 2018, his friend Greenberg made Venmo payments to three young women totaling $900, describing the money on the app as for “Tuition” or “School.” Gaetz sent Greenberg $900 the night before on Venmo, writing in one transaction “hit up ___,” using a nickname for the 17-year old. (Greenberg says they apparently cut off contact with her until she was 18.) At least one of those payments has been confirmed by the federal investigation.

Gaetz was also righteously pilloried on social media.

WATCH The Look On Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Face When Matt Gaetz Brings Up Rumors She’s The 1/6 Pipe Bomber

Everything is falling apart for Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

Last Friday, she had to testify under oath as part of a hearing that will decide whether or not she’s allowed on the November midterm ballot.

On Monday, thousands of text messages related to the January 6, 2021 Capitol insurrection were released, and some of them showed that Greene was actively engaged in trying to carry out a coup that would have kept failed, one-term former President Donald Trump in office.

In one of the texts, Greene told then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows:

“In our private chat with only Members, several are saying the only way to save our Republic is for Trump to call for Marshall (sic) law. I don’t know on those things. I just wanted you to tell him. They stole this election. We all know. They will destroy our country next. Please tell him to declassify as much as possible so we can go after Biden and anyone else!”

On Tuesday, Greene sought refuge from the storm surrounding her by appearing on her good friend Rep. Matt Gaetz’s (R-FL) “Firebrand” podcast, but that too wound up backfiring on her.

During in the interview, Gaetz remarked:

“People were accusing like Lauren Boebert of leading reconnaissance tours.”

Greene interjected:

“What? With her children and her husband?”

Gaetz continued:

“They were accusing you of like pipebombs, and here’s what people don’t know. The reason why Marjorie Taylor Greene has a total alibi from the pipebomb thing is that I have never seen this woman in a hoodie.”

Be sure and note the expression on Greene’s face when Gaetz makes that “joke” about the pipe bombs planted in Washington, D.C. on the day of the Capitol riots. The perpetrator of that crime has yet to be taken into custody, as the Washington Post reported on January 29, 2021:

The explosive devices, which were placed blocks from one another at the headquarters of the Republican and Democratic national committees, have been largely overshadowed by the violent attempted insurrection at the Capitol. But finding the person suspected of planting both bombs remains a priority for federal authorities, who last week boosted the reward for tips leading to the person’s arrest from $50,000 to $75,000.

That one look from Greene set off a torrent of reaction on Twitter.

Matt Gaetz Appears In Cringeworthy Rap Video As The ‘Chosen One’

If you thought you’d seen all of the bizarre things the internet has to offer, you may need to amend your list of the head-scratching inanities that float free in the social media ether.

Why? Because Florida GOP Congressman Matt Gaetz is now appearing in a rap video.

Yes, really.

Mediaite ran across the video:

The video and song, which is aptly called “Matt Gaetz,” was recorded and filmed by MAGA rappers Forgiato Blow and J360. It dropped Monday on YouTube.

In the song, the rappers hail Gaetz as a rare gem who is not part of Washington’s swamp, along with controversial Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), who deserves respect.

Take a look at some of the lyrics:

“Tell these snowflakes I’m like Matt Gaetz and Madison Cawthorn,
Tell these bums come and take my guns, it’s uncalled for,
Trump did four years in the office he ain’t never start wars,
Ya’ll livin’ in a fantasy like this shit is Star Wars

“He’s the chosen one, yeah, dedicated congressman, Matt Gaetz show him love…”

Gaetz couldn’t resist putting in a plug for his cameo appearance.

While Gaetz is making videos and hanging out with no-talent rappers, the investigation of his allegedly illegal actions regarding the paying of an underage girl to have sex with him continues and could result in the congressman being imprisoned for the rest of his life for sex trafficking.

Gaetz’s legal problems are also making him vulnerable as he seeks reelection in November, according to the Pensacola News-Journal:

Most political watchers would agree that in 2022, Florida’s 1st Congressional District should be a strong lock for an incumbent Republican congressman who is one of the most outspoken supporters of former President Donald Trump, but Rep. Matt Gaetz’s potential legal troubles are shifting what’s possible in Northwest Florida.

Gaetz could be facing his biggest re-election battle since he first won the seat in 2016 as one in a field of seven candidates.

WATCH Matt Gaetz Make An A*s Of Himself During A House Hearing With Secy. Of Defense Austin

During a House hearing on Tuesday with Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) made a fool of himself by suggesting that the Defense Department is wasting taxpayer money on teaching “socialism” and diversity to U.S. troops.

When Gaetz made the bogus socialism claim, Austin immediately pushed back, remarking:

“Well, I certainly don’t agree with embracing socialism.”

Rather than let the Defense Secretary finish his remarks, Gaetz interrupted and went off on a rambling, fact-free rant:

“My follow-up question, if we don’t embrace it, why did the National Defense University put out a statement saying in this talk he will argue that the right answer lies in ending Western arrogance and promoting a new egalitarian horizon on a global scale, a new form of ecological and post-colonial socialism? So why would we invite people we don’t agree with to evangelize views and values that we don’t share at the National Defense University when we should be learning strategy about how to combat our enemies and make assessments that are accurate?”

Austin attempted to explain that the military often studies possible new strategies and better ways to prepare members of the armed forces, but yet again Gaetz refused to let Austin finish his remarks:

“Mr. Secretary, I’ve shared with you the context. The context wasn’t to better understand socialism so we can defeat it, the context wasn’t learn about it so that we can offer countermeasures. The concept was that it’s time for socialism, and the reason I know that’s the context is because the lecture was pulled from a book written entitled Time for Socialism.”

When Austin tried to get more information about what Gaetz was referring to, the congressman refused to let him speak:

“I control the time. You guys have been blowing a lot of calls lately on matters of strategy, Mr. Secretary. You guys told us that Russia couldn’t lose, that the Taliban couldn’t immediately win. I guess I’m wondering, what about the $773 billion that you’re requesting today is going to help you make assessments that are accurate in the face of so many blown calls?”

The Defense chief did manage to get a barb in at Gaetz, telling him:

“The fact that you’re embarrassed by your country. That’s what you’re saying.”

That led Gaetz to accuse Austin of being too interested in diversity:

“Maybe we would be better at home if the National Defense University actually worked a little more on strategy and a little less on woke-ism. That was baked into your flawed assessment. I saw that the Obama administration tried to starve our military and it seems the Biden administration is trying to starve our military by force-feeding it woke-ism.”

“Woke-ism” is not a thing. It’s a buzzword created by right-wingers who are looking for ways to attack the men and women of the U.S. military while simultaneously claiming they support the troops.

They also claim that anyone who disagrees with them hates the United States. But the real hatred is theirs, and they cannot stand when someone dares to disagree with their bigoted, narrow-minded view of the world.

Here’s the video:

GOP Healthcare WTF?!

Matt Gaetz Says Diabetics Don’t Need Insulin, They Just Need To Lose Weight

Last week the House of Representatives passed legislation that would cap the price of insulin at $35 a month for most American diabetics who need it to survive.

The legislation was necessary because drug companies have hiked the cost of insulin to as much as $1,000 a month in order to pad their bottom lines, a 500% increase that endangers the lives of millions of diabetics, even those with health insurance.

 

Despite the importance of such life-saving measures, only 12 Republicans in the House voted to support the legislation.

One member of the GOP who voted against the bill was Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who tried to blame the high cost of insulin on the overweight instead of greedy Big Pharma companies, according to Mother Jones, telling his constituents:

While Democrat posturing of H.R. 6833 victimizes insulin payees as people with an uncontrollable disease that are being taken advantage of and need Big Brother to throw them a raft, lifestyle changes en masse would expeditiously lower demand and the subsequent prices of insulin. 90-95% of people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes, which “can be prevented or delayed with healthy lifestyle changes, such as losing weight, eating healthy food, and being active.” Arbitrary price controls are no substitute for individual weight control. Since 2000, the number of diabetes cases in the U.S. has nearly doubled. The demand for insulin has increased and the requisite price increase has followed suit. In other words, the price of insulin increases as waistlines increase. 

Keep in mind that 10% of Florida residents are diabetics. And Gaetz was far from done when it came to blaming diabetics for their condition, suggesting that his reasoning was simple: He was trying to stave off socialism in the United States:

 “I will not see a reemergence of FDR price controls and join the Democrats in their attempt to pave the Road to Serfdom.”

This isn’t the first time Gaetz has fat shamed people.

Last August, the Florida congressman said he didn’t “fit in” with most members of Congress because so many of them are old and obese.

Looking young and fit is very important to Matt Gaetz, and there’s good reason for his rejection of anyone who is old or obese: When you allegedly get off on dating and sleeping with underage girls, you have to pretend to be youthful and ripped so you don’t look quite as pervy as you stand outside the nearest high school and wave a fistful of twenties around.
