      @SLOPPY WHOPPER Fake news? That’s a bit rich coming from a fake youtube profile.

  2. Matt Gaetz looks like the kind of guy who genuinely enjoys a tall and frosty mug of prune juice.🥴

  3. Gaetz is the inevitable outcome of spoiled brats whose entitlement allowed them to avoid accountability all their lives.

    • @The mighty Hanz low gas prices are terrible. I want gas to be at least $10/gal so everyone switches to EVs faster. Gas (and especially diesel) cars stink.

      @David C you have never worked a day in your life.

      @The mighty Hanz TDS? Your party still kisses his 🍑 after he lost you the White House and Senate, plus your fellow MAGAZombies want him to run for President again in 2024. 🤣

      @Insignificant360 mail in voting was a scam anyone with a brain saw right through it. You think 80 million people voted for a guy who can’t even speak? Lol what a clown

    • @David C yes joe will get us to $10;00

    I love this so much

  5. Gaetz should ask Tucker if he recalls requesting a booster seat for his date when they met up for dinner.

  6. Cheryl Ernst | April 14, 2021 at 9:40 PM | Reply

    Oh boy. It’s getting hot now.

  7. Gaetz the type to be more upset of reports he had to pay above everything else going on

    I never thought Fed’s would require a psychical phone. 😆. But glad to hear about more justice

  9. Q been real quiet since this Gaetz story hit the fan… 😄😄😄

    GoP: “Think of the children!”
    Matt Gaetz: “Way ahead of ya!”

    • @Rory M or maybe you leftist are a cult ?

    • Is Roger Stone conpromised now? Is Goats going to spill the tea on Roger? Made a deal? He should you know. He is facing some troubling problems, least of which is his sexual predations. How much about Starlink did Trump tell Putin in private Matt? Russian countered with hypersonic developments to it run our new phased array targeting SDI space based weaponry. How bad is it Matt? Ars we ready to walk into a box canyon with no defenses now?

      America, proving to the world why Democracy is a toxic and divisive social system since its birth.

    • Gaetz thinks of them way too much 😂😂😂

    • @C. Reck funny thing is, I’m not a leftist. I don’t identify as any political background. I have a copy of the constitution, I do what I do to stay legal, make money, and to not be stupid.

      You’re a cult because you consider yourself fighting for this country and everyone who disagrees with you is considered “left”

      You’re so far disconnected from reality you don’t see that EVERYONE is tired of the kool-aid drink you guys are slurping down.

    Innocent until proven guilty, but when they seize your phone and you are in Congress, you done screwed up…

    • Oh how I hope.

    • Branch Covidian | April 14, 2021 at 10:47 PM | Reply

      And still innocent until proven guilty.

    • @oldhp mopar 🙏👍🤘🙏

    • @Branch Covidian Unless you are George Floyd. He was the victim, and he died a horrible death. Now, the owner of the knee is innocent until proven guilty and George Floyd is guilty until his killer is proven guilty. Innocent until proven guilty is a concept under the law. If they didn’t have some suspicions the Chauvin was not innocent, he would not be on trial.

    • Not anymore, in a world where half the population refuses to believe things they hear and see themselves any horrible deed can be escaped.

  11. Seems to me that if you know your last bedmate was in fact of legal age you lose no time in bringing that out. You call her over and say, “Show the nice agent your driver’s license.”

    • Edge Valmond | April 14, 2021 at 9:58 PM | Reply

      Yes, and then the plot twist comes in.

      Cop: Seventeen and a half…

      Gatez: You’re seventeen?!

      Girl: And a half.


      Jokes aside, this guy already has enough dirt on him to put away the average person for several lifetimes. Really shows how backwards the U.S is. If he is found of being truly guilty, then this is probably the last chance the U.S has to show the rest of the world that it can maintain a semblance of its leadership.

      Because that would make it look like he was asking for a commitment from her you don’t want no strange tied through him and his other conspirators or his Playboy with his yandere girls

    • SquadioDataMJ | April 14, 2021 at 10:13 PM | Reply

      about that (those) drivers license(s) Grnbrg and Gtz were fiddling with at the county tax office (on a weekend)…..were they to “age up” the young girls to legal age or “age down” the men too old to be messing with teenage girls????

    • @SquadioDataMJ it’s worse. It’s so they can traffic these young girls across boarders to preditors while they disguise them as legal girls.

    • Debbie Appelhans | April 14, 2021 at 10:23 PM | Reply

      @SquadioDataMJ I really need so many different different ID or driver’s license of himself in different names are we different younger ages to make them look like you all barely wanting something you’re not almost looks like you could be 40 but for it probably 50 year old named it like to screw this16 year olds

  12. “Hey Pete! Send me a perv character from central casting.” ” Sure thing: Gaetz! your up!”

  13. Yeah, I’m sure the women got paid to talk to Gaetz about his feelings.
    I’ll say it again… No normal person would refer a 17 year old child as a woman.

    • Rodrigo Lemus | April 14, 2021 at 10:57 PM | Reply

      Monica Lewinsky was 22 years old, clearly a consenting adult when Bill Clinton had an extramarital affair with her… The Republican party reacted like she was a 17 years old girl.

    • @PTREK BOX BREAKS Legal in all 50 states 🤣🤣🤣

    • @Professional Dirt Mover The courts state that you are incorrect. Thar she is legal play ball. 🤣

    • Mom With a plan | April 14, 2021 at 11:12 PM | Reply

      Matt keeps saying “ Women” because, it sounds so much better in the media.

      He has to spin it, that’s what they do. Good lord, we all know it’s still a child, no matter how much, he try’s.

    • @Peter T Some states its 15..Just saying. Get your definitions right.

  14. I think Devon Nunes has a lot more hidden on his plate than Gaetz/Cruz combined. He’s been pretty quiet since caught receiving a package from Russia. Barely a word since the Ukraine bribe . Be leary of the silent ones.

    • And Roger Stone, Steve Bannon, Michael Flynn all of whom got a pardon, hoping no one will take another look at them.

    Matt Gaetz’s head is going to roll big time. What a devil Matt Gaetz is.

  16. When a man is known for dating barely legal women, police usually find extremely far more disturbing downloaded pics on their phones and pc

  17. What goes around comes around. He’s in for a world of humiliation and I’m here for it. 🍻

  18. Before everyone rejoices too much, don’t forget theres still an underage girl who was abused.

  19. Blake About mine | April 14, 2021 at 10:19 PM | Reply

    Matt Gaetz: They ain’t coming after me, They coming after you.

    Delusional: 😂😂😂
