  1. He looks like a scared guilty man to me.

    • He looks like a narcissist who thinks he can outsmart the FBI — which is what he was trying to do in his interview with tucker carlson on Faux Noise.

    • Am I the only one who thinks he’ll flee?

      @David Galehouse He’s relaxed because he has affluenza. His father has bailed him out of all his criminal actions. So he’s expecting the same treatment in this case..

    • Kathleen McQuillan | April 19, 2021 at 10:50 PM | Reply

      @S McDonald No. There’s a very good chance that he will. Because it looks like not even his father, who has bailed him with all his previous criminal actions, can help him with this case..

      @B Bodziak The FBI loves it when subjects think they’re smarter!

  2. The FBI also seized the ex-girlfriend’s phone. She definitely knows things.

    • How does this ex-girlfriend know about the 17 year old other girlfriend, she like Gates is basically verifying Gates was ‘dating’ a 17 year old. You can’t tape a call but you can have a 2nd or 3rd person listening in to verify what is said, and maybe even make a transcript.

      @myko freder you can tape a call, in a lot of states you don’t even need to tell the other person they are being recorded you only need one persons ok, and that one person is the one doing the recording

    • Probably she knowingly lied to the Feds, and she has reasons to worry. 🧐

    • @myko freder It’s Gaetz.

  3. Matt Gaetz said at that women’s conference that when the feds come for him, they are actually coming for all of us. No Matt, they’re coming for you.

    I’m so ready for all these two-faced corrupt politicians to finally be held accountable just like any other American citizen would be held to! 😡😡😡

      @Jon He was also paid by us taxpayers. For every trip he took to his own golf courses he billed us for $134K..

    • Sadly, Faux Noise is aligning itself with Gaetz and calling it fake news. People need to listen up anytime a republican shouts, “Fake News!”

    • Some people are thrown in jail for driving on a suspended licence or for loitering.

    • @CoconutKev
      Is is coconut Kev or coconut Kiev??
      Go back to Newsmask or Faux news,
      You’re way over your head here.🥱

    • David Wallace | April 19, 2021 at 11:01 PM | Reply

      @Kathleen McQuillan it was way more money than that each trip cost us taxpayers 6million a day

  5. Howard Mulvihill | April 19, 2021 at 8:51 PM | Reply

    There was a reason for those fake IDs. Matt had to get the prom queen into a nightclub. 😂🤡💩

  6. Gaetz only has one sentence on his resume: “Rich spoiled white male.”

  7. People please leave Matt’s girlfriends alone – they have homework to do.

  8. He’s working hard alright. Working hard to figure out how to not wear hand cuffs that aren’t furry.

    You don’t have my support. I’m appalled that you still have your job!

  10. Boy and Democracts made Al Frankin resign. How stupid does that look now?

    • Eirwynn Volaran | April 19, 2021 at 9:36 PM | Reply

      sadly, each party is working by their own rules. The Democrats have their rules and Republicans only have rules if you’re caught…and even then you might still get away.

    Surprising she knows the FBI seized her cell phone records by the patriot act they don’t need a warrant and they don’t have to tell you.

  12. Civil Villain | April 19, 2021 at 9:05 PM | Reply

    When Gaetz said, “Thank you for your support over these last couple of weeks…” he’s specifically talking to only his Dad, Gym Jordan, and MTG – no one, NO ONE else is supporting this smug creep.

  13. He should start shopping for new hairstyles because his current one won’t hold up so well in prison.

  14. If Gaetz gets away with this due to technicality despite guilt, then there should be a national protest!!!!!!

    It would be funny if George Carlin was still around to hear him commenting on the modern GOP wackos

    • Donald Stanfield | April 19, 2021 at 9:35 PM | Reply

      Can you imagine, he’d be having a riot!

    • Andrew Bogle | April 19, 2021 at 9:37 PM | Reply

      Never was there a time when the US needed George Carlin more than now.

    • Radagast Brown | April 19, 2021 at 9:49 PM | Reply

      @Andrew Bogle except when he repeatedly begged his audience not to vote.

    • @Radagast Brown. Well one has to concede he had a point. The fact that Trump and a large section of the GOP and its supporters denied the result of the election resulting in the insurrection at the Capitol shows how prescient George was. If it had succeeded then George was right on the money. In the event it didn’t succeed, but the US has never come closer to a coup and many Republicans are bitterly disappointed it didn’t succeed. So whether George was being facetious or not he was making a good point.

    Why don’t someone check out his Father’s bank accounts for activities? You might find payoffs going on!!

  17. James Campbell | April 19, 2021 at 9:23 PM | Reply

    After Gaetz’s career is over, do Jim Jordan next please.

  18. No need to worry if she’s innocent, obviously she isn’t innocent if she’s afraid of what might/will be found on it by the FBI.

  19. It has often been said that Republicans accuse Democrats of what they themselves are guilty of. Accusing Democrats of running a pedophile ring now comes home to roost!

    • Democrats don’t even try to hide it. Look at Bill Clinton. And the Democrat congressman that was sleeping with a China spy😂😂

      @Marty Stamey you sound dumb!! These were grown women not children. They had an affair republicans have done worse.

    • Jonathon Lastname | April 19, 2021 at 10:36 PM | Reply

      @Courtney Williams i will say the spy is one thing, but Bill was unacceptable adult or not it was abuse of power. He and Gaetz are both disgusting.

    • Kathleen McQuillan | April 19, 2021 at 10:54 PM | Reply

      They call it PedoWood, but forgot not only Democrats are actors..

    • Jonathon Lastname | April 19, 2021 at 10:59 PM | Reply

      @Kathleen McQuillan the fact that people pick and choose who to call out for their disgusting behavior based on which political party they bribe the best is sick. And the celebrities in Hollywood and politiciams who sit by and let it happen should feel sick about themselves, but I doubt it because they have the money and that’s what matters to them.

    I find the fact that gaetz was talking job change right before this story came out very telling. Sleaze
