  1. It wasn’t the media telling on Matt; it was his buddy Greenberg. He’s a joke.

    1. @Eric G It’s a legit question. Name a news outlet that has never said they haven’t verified something? At least NBC does it in the same piece…

    1. @Moira McCleary you’re right. It’s about your hypocrisy. Declaring guilt for these people without any evidence, all the while your head is in the sand for people like cuomo. I bet you go to these comment sections about cuomo and say it’s a vast conservative conspiracy and declare cuomo innocent. You all are very predictable.

    2. @Roy Mercer Deflection, deflection,deflection!! Hey look over here NOT there! It’s what you tRumpsters do every time. GTFOH

      The Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020 will be, from this day forth, known as THE BIG LIE!

    1. Is he wearing ruby slippers??? LOL he’s just another seditious rich little whimp and should be!! LOL!

    2. Russian bot Alert! May May Somner is a dude named Sergei who lives in St Petersburg and earns his ruble’s trolling.

  2. The Republicans want to get rid of Liz Cheney for telling the truth, but is willing to keep Matt Gaetz who constantly lies

    1. @ARLENE WUK tbh I don’t care if he lost or won where are our reparations! Both parties are ignoring blk American disparities and that’s not the job of the government. I don’t see you saying anything about those facts!

  3. Daily Reminder: On January 6, 2021, Impeached former President Trump attacked America during a joint session of Congress.

    1. @Slick Rick it’s already been filed in court. Either AG Garland decides to look into it, or not.
      AZ? Now that’s laughable. Super secret audit by a qanon hack. Bring out the UV lights to look for invisible ink and water marks.
      Barr used his office to misguide the public as well as lying about it, under oath, to a federal judge. She’s going to get it unsealed, and make it public. 2 weeks

    2. @homersapien obstruction… That’s what we are talking about here. Then, the collusion becomes quite apparent.

    1. @John Doe She’s got finals coming up and doesn’t have time for all this media attention. I wonder if she’ll take Matt to prom.

    2. @homersapien What issue? Biden took care of the border quite professionally and efficiently, Pay attention and quit trolling.

    1. Who would’ve thought the guy who wears Rockabilly brogues and a gasmask to work would turn out to be a giant pervert?

    2. @homersapien Don’t be all upset that you’re way too old for Matt Gaetz to pay you money to travel with him.

  4. They ask the wrong question, I don’t care what happened to Gates in the last few months, I want to know what he did in the last few years

  5. Gorka’s got that uber evil villainous British accent. You can just tell, he’s got bad intentions.

    1. He’s setting the stage to cry , being the victim is an excuse . Men don’t use it , but he will , a river of tears , and conspiracy claims .

  6. Matt you keep changing your story and your defense. The more you do this, the more guilty you sound.

  7. He really doesn’t realize this is a criminal investigation. This isn’t politics. It’s crime and with crime comes a real trial with real jurors. And real prison if found guilty.

    1. Gaetz has to play it as political, that’s the only forum where he has traction to spin it. Even as PR and just saving what ever he can of his public image, this makes sense. But who cares, when are they going to charge the bum?

  8. i love how even by saying that someone is trying to extort him, He’s admitting he’s done something that can be held over his head and used to extorted him

    1. @Moira McCleary
      Well you’re clearly not sounding like you have any objections to his allegations

    2. @rdwngdblkbrd not just weak….Can’t walk down a ramp or drink with one hand DIAPERDON KIND OF WEAK

  9. Tucker Carlson said the Gaetz interview was weird because Carlson himself was implicated on the sexual encounter – which makes him a(n) accessory
    You right Tucker, that would be weird!

  10. This is the play book you normally expect from children, not from an adult who occupies a position of responsibility.

    1. I’d say this is the only playbook that is followed by anyone in power. Politicians are all cowards.

  11. Privileged, entitled, sick little frat boy who has gotten everything he’s ever wanted in life, never heard the word no, been bailed out by Daddy, never done a hard day’s work in his life.. he’s a liar and not very bright. Sounds like somebody else we know.

  12. Remember, Matt Gaetz didn’t strangled himself in a cell, he was just trying to get himself off.

    1. When a Republican is asked a question and they start to rant and rave about other things, they start to deflect and pivot to something totally irrelevant, because they know if they slip up and answer it’s going to incriminate them

  13. My mom would have said, “He’s too big for his britches.” To me he sounds like a smart-alecky little kid all dressed up in his daddy’s clothes.
