WATCH Matt Gaetz Get Fact Checked To His Face When He Says Trump Won The 2020 Election

During an interview with a local TV reporter in Pensacola, Florida, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) repeated the right-wing lie that Donald Trump won the 2020 election, and he immediately got slapped down with a brutal fact-check from the interviewer.

HuffPost notes that Gaetz was eager to try and recirculate all of the debunked conspiracy theories about the last presidential election:

Gaetz, during an interview with anchor Bob Solarski on northwest Florida ABC-affiliate WEAR-TV, echoed Trump’s baseless claims of stolen votes and electoral corruption with his declaration that Trump was the actual victor over Democratic rival Joe Biden.

“So, you’re still maintaining the 2020 election was stolen? Are we still going with that?” Solarski asked Gaetz.

“Listen, I believe that Donald Trump won the 2020 election. I believe that he won the Electoral College,” Gaetz replied, even though Trump clearly did not win either the popular vote or the Electoral College.

Solarski countered: “You can’t say that without saying there was a gigantic conspiracy across this country and supervisors and election offices to make this happen and we haven’t still seen any evidence that proves that.”

Twitter users had a few thoughts about Gaetz’s continued refusal to accept reality.
