    Absolutely not a good look, money and under age girls. What happened to family values in the GOP or GQP?

  2. The GOP is in complete denial of exactly how screwed they are in 2022 and 2024.

      @My Tale Gotcha kinda like Demons high on fetanol which is why they are fond of open borders. Border Patrol agents are babysitting instead of stopping your supply chain…Thanks for your Concern!

      @Meow Meow Communists can still be Facists (eg Stalin, North Korea, Pol Pot, and Romania pre 1989).

      Why are they even worried about this they should be worried about other things this is not important

      They’ve been in Denial of being Screwed for Decades.

      And Greene! She a horror of a human being!!

    • I was sceptical that Trump would ever go to jail, but everything now starts to spill out, the rats turn on each other, and serious, top level lawyers get paid to close in, I realise it’s inevitable.

      Genuine question – what jail will Trump be sent to initially? And what facility will he serve the majority of sentence in?

      Will Don Junior be sent to the same facility?

      @nick78447 I’m guessing he’s going to spend plenty of time in Ossining NY

    So he swings both ways, as long as they’re underage. Got it.

  5. Gaetz so worried about Dr. Suess being cancelled he won’t be able to read them to his dates fitting their age range

      @Amrit Singh Good Ol’ Projection (GOP)

    • Very funny 🤣

    • Robin Parker | April 2, 2021 at 10:32 PM | Reply

      @Amrit Singh I’m glad somebody else picked up on the irony of that. The idea that Marjorie Taylor Greene, of all people, would be his only supporter is completely laughable!

      I’m a Florida resident and I never liked this guy! He is a bad apple and extremely immature. Just another guy from a wealthy family who thinks he is above the law like the time he got out of that DUI! William Bar started this investigation,…I mean C’mon this has to be really bad!! NO PARDONS MATT TIME TO PAY THE PRICE!

    The sincerest representation of the not so “moral majority” . There’s much and Many more to be sure?

    Probably it is the only way this creep can get together with a woman is to PAY for it .

    Gaetz: “You remember Tucker, when we were in the hotel lobby and I withdrew $1200 from the ATM”

    • @Fuzzyjembud That was priceless!!!!

    • @David Guelette Hahahaha!!! That was gold!

      @Studbolt Slickrock They are perfectly legal apps. Evil has nothing to do with it.

    • Studbolt Slickrock | April 2, 2021 at 4:33 PM | Reply

      Then why have Gaetz and the Republicans been demonizing them for the last year? Demanding boycotts and hearings and breakups and jailings. Gosh, why Gaetz himself has been especially vocal about how evil Apple and Google are. Wow, if only someone could point out the hypocrisy of him using these evil companies’ technology to engage in evil acts. And maybe someone could point out the irony of that being the way he got caught. Nah, people are too stupid to pick up on that.

    Gaetz was just having a bad day and acted out because he never got to party with Epstein like his idol did.

  10. Not many are defending Gaetz because it’s not hard to believe it can be true based on his past

  11. The Progressive Curmudgeon | April 2, 2021 at 7:59 AM | Reply

    I wonder if campaign funds were used? It seems to be on-brand for the GOP.

  12. Minimum 10years for others but longer sentence for Gaetz as he is an elected senator & moreover he’s in the Judiciary committee. I can’t wait to see him handcuffed, with his trademark mask dressed in orange jumpsuit.

    This is all connected to what Michael Cohn said,”those that stick with Trump,will go down with Trump,no matter the cases.

  14. This could not be happening to a more worthy piece of crap.

  15. It looks like the DOJ is starting to “drain the swamp”

  16. Juan Maldonado | April 2, 2021 at 8:33 AM | Reply

    FOR a lawmaker to have committed these crimes IS deplorable and must be given the maximum sentence to deter others from doing the same

  17. Donnie Fleming | April 2, 2021 at 8:37 AM | Reply

    The way he talks to people…Karma at it’s best…..You can’t actually go up to him and punch him in the face.this is pretty close

    I love that Merrick Garland is running the DOJ now 😂😂😂😂. So poetic.

    • Hard Boiled Mahoney | April 2, 2021 at 11:43 AM | Reply

      @Insignificant360, no, not Garland. I’m a dork who commented on the wrong post…lol. Gaetz is the creepy one.

      I need him to also get Billy Barr, nasty liar, dirty, and flip-flopper.
      Soon as he saw his daddy was not going to get away with it, he made a suppose turn-around.
      The law is coming for you Billy!

    • Bianca Culpo | April 2, 2021 at 12:20 PM | Reply

      AINT IT??? LMFAOOOO all they had to do was make him a justice but nooo, he’s now AG and he’s definitely going to be bringing down Matt and I’m sure those who denied him of a hearing including Moscow Mitch

    • Bianca Culpo | April 2, 2021 at 12:21 PM | Reply

      @Lucio Martínez Bill Barr did it to himself, he knew exactly what he was doing, he’s going to go down hard.

    • Belly Dancer Em | April 2, 2021 at 4:06 PM | Reply

      Karma, baby!!

  19. So the GOP knew about this and told their folks not to be pictured with him. Classic CYA instead of reporting this to police or FBI.

    • @craig short they always are. If there’s a scandal involving democrats republicans are all over it, but silent when it’s their own

    • Not reporting it is allowing it to continue, and is another broader scandal. An internal GOP policy to allow minors to be abused?

    • ThunderDog97 | April 2, 2021 at 1:58 PM | Reply

      @Graphic design for Free That’s just a talking point… not something they actually care about.

    • It’s just like Republican’s like one in Frankfort,Ky that was accuse of spousal abuse and the party took him back and now he’s tangle up in something else. They have no moral or respect for other people.

      False !.. Don’t believe whst they are hear saying??. Don’t be so gullible ??? Geez🙉😂

    I guess we now know why Gaetz was the only Republican who voted against a human trafficking bill in 2017… he thought it’d hurt small business

    • Zombie NurseRN | April 2, 2021 at 10:46 PM | Reply

      @Jordan Myles: That is just too priceless! I salute you for your concern about small businesses! Matt is truly nasty. If he and I were in the same elevator, I’d have to shower immediately after.
