  1. Gladiators famously didn’t fight in wars, they fought for entertainment. Accidental truth there?

    1. And to that, Boehner’s book states that the GOP is now more interested in performance theatre, not policy. So a gladiator is completely in keeping….

    2. Can you imagine looking over to one of your comrades in arms and seeing that it is Matt Gaetz? Rifle flat on the ground, probably primping his hair.

    1. I think they all think that somehow it will be different for them, until they find out, that no, it won’t.

    1. I don’t advocate violence, but the Right claimed there were children being trafficked in that pizza place, regardless that it had no basement… But Gaetz, is presumably an actual person with real evidence pointing straight at him… *Where are the “save the children” protesters NOW???*

    1. Bill Barr is not returning trump’s calls, and he doesn’t know what to do! I’d bet real MONEY that’s what’s going on!

    2. @george howe Well, not speaking up is a benefit to Donald Trump, isn’t it? Can you imagine what Putin has on him. There must be mountains and mountains of financial info.

    3. @Ash Roskell Bill Barr has done the greatest disappearing act since David Copperfield. Mike Pence emulating him. I wonder why.

    1. Politicians and their family do not go to prison just look at Hillary Clinton and Hunter Biden. Talk about privilege.

    1. @Belly Dancer Em Exactly. I have no idea why ANYONE is still sticking with Trump. It never ends well for Trump loyalists.

  2. Matt Gaetz thinks being a troll is being a gladiator. If you think Matt Gaetz is fighting for you then you live in the swamp that this creature calls home

    1. Master projectors. They call everything else that they hate or dislike everything that they in truth are. Mr Swamp thing being square one.

    2. “Are you not entertained?!” . . . Well, as a matter of fact, Matty boy, I’m kinda’ lovin’ it!

  3. if anyone else w/ a regular job had such a public scandal, they wouldn’t have a job anymore, rofl
    idk how the gov doesn’t at least cut his pay, he’s clearly not working for the people

    1. I’d love to know just one worthwhile thing Gaetz has done for his constituents in the last 4 years.

    2. Name one thing ANY of them have done for the people. Exactly 0. None of them work for us. They work for the elite, they don’t answer to us.

  4. If a reporter wants to go viral, they should ask Gaetz why he thinks trump hasn’t come out in his defense

    1. He’ll probably say he received a “lovely letter” of support from Trump. The most perfect letter ever written.

  5. Gaetz is just late bloomer. Finally at the age of 39, he’s got that prom date he’s been waiting for!

    1. Matt gates could run for Congress tomorrow and win big… All of his constituents in district one of Florida where I live the Men and women all think hes a hero!! Nudie PicturesAnd videos, underage girls, Ecstasy and drugs… the Guy’s a rock star In Florida’s district one, So called Evangelical Trinitarian belt, Or As I call it the Deviant belt?

  6. Sorry Matt, you forgot to mention that the investigation started with Bill Barr, under Trump’s administration. Try again…

    1. Republicans love that tactic of leaving out pertinent information that won’t further their narrative. Never let a fact get in the way of a good story.

    1. @John Griffith that wasn’t loyalty, it was self preservation. He wanted them to keep their mouths shut.

    2. @Princess Tiarra – This logic does not work. Look at MSNBC.. they lie, get caught, labelled losers but its the same Wash, Rinse and Repeat.

    3. He’s not mentioned the fact that Barr, the EX WH OCCUPANTS ASSKISSER started the investigations!! So if he has a problem, go after Barr. But NO, he’s going to be waiting until They come with the new Cufflinks, if he thinks that #45 will speak up for him. Just think, in a time of need, when ALL the Fans will think he’s even GREATER than he is, he says Nothing for Gaetz. Everyone knew the game. He got scammed like the rest. If he doesn’t Resign, the Republicans will Vote him out. They’re not afraid to speak up NOW, although many of Them are going to get the same treatment. There’s a New Justice in the WH now, and All the BS is over.

    4. Matt gates could run for Congress tomorrow and win big… All of his constituents in district one of Florida where I live the Men and women all think hes a hero!! Nudie PicturesAnd videos, underage girls, Ecstasy and drugs… the Guy’s a rock star In Florida’s district one, So called Evangelical Trinitarian belt, Or As I call it the Deviant belt?

    1. If Gaetz was married to Melania, she could say, “it was just locker room activity” ….and a third of Americans (including all Bible Thumpers) would be fine with that.

    2. @Ken Albertsen Well, Trump did spend a lot of time in underage girls’ change rooms at Miss America pageants. And change rooms are locker rooms, of a sort.

  7. Hilarious how a rich boy who probably never even microwaved his own food calls himself a “Gladiator” Pizza Gætz is a joke.

    1. @Mainely
      That statement is funny.
      The right has temper tantrums?
      The word snowflake exists for a reason.

  8. When I first arrived in the US for college there was a scandal involving a politician named Gary Hart that ended his career. How times have changed

    1. Hart actually dared journalists to tail him when the rumors were swirling around. So surprise! One of them did.

  9. No, Matt, they’re not coming for us. They’re definitely coming for you.

    1. Why is everyone guilty now with nothing but allegations. If he’s guilty, punishment is due. Stop the convictions until the case is resolved. Until then its all bull.

    2. Matt gates could run for Congress tomorrow and win big… All of his constituents in district one of Florida where I live the Men and women all think hes a hero!! Nudie PicturesAnd videos, underage girls, Ecstasy and drugs… the Guy’s a rock star In Florida’s district one, So called Evangelical Trinitarian belt, Or As I call it the Deviant belt?

    1. Republican voters that watch faux news believe everything is a conspiracy because faux news and right wing media leads them there..
      They’ll have a small segment about bad news for the Republicans ( if at all) then change the subject with their WHATABOUTISM b.s

    2. @PIPE DOWN
      I agree with you on Fox and all of mainstream media, its all owned corporately.
      A world leader recently stated ” Corporations have grown so large they now rival governments in political influence and expenditure”.
      They own mainstream….
      Thats why i selectively use independent news sources that care about truth.
      Fox has several good reporters but it is owned by a leftist billionaire Rupert Murdoch and family.
      Yes, the home of the right is owned by the left. ( ultimately Globalists)
      Point being until Trump it didnt matter.
      Bush wore the label of a Republican as Obama and Clinton wore a Democrat label, all support endless wars and aggression.
      Mainstreamvworks to divide and incite.
      This is not about left or right, it is about those who use corrupted politicians, who own literally all mainstream media.
      The very powerful who pull the strings, narrate the words and they united against change.
      The first president in 40 years who didint harbor a major conflict.
      Three months into Biden and we are once again on the verge of world war.
      We are all being used, manipulated and herded.

  10. Daddy fights his battle all his life behind the scenes. Remember his daddy got the sheriff sacked for arresting his son for drinking and driving.

    1. I always hate when corruption skews due process and upholding the laws. What’s the point of having laws if the most consequential elites can squeak their way out of a charge?
