    Follow the leader. -Gaetz

  3. House ethics are least of his problems😳

  4. Love Gaetz’s “Coffee For Con Artists” line of blazers…

  5. There was a time where even just showing nudes of women on the House floor would have forced a resignation…

      Curious as to why someone like Trudeau or Cuomo wouldn’t step down on their own accord?

    • @yootoober2009 if it quacks like a duck , it must be a witch.

    • @Fender 89 no Q people Just ignore that the GOP actually supported full heartedly keeping child marriage down to age 10 , legal in the southern states. thats pedophilia not religion. period. so the GQP litterally is the party of pedophiles. i say that to q spouters and theri head exsplodes trying to deny facts.

      I don’t know that cool and edgy is what Gaetz needs right now.

    • @Bannedfor7thtime Foryoutubecomments They probably will if/when allrgations from an underage girl comes forward. Surly that can be “arranged”.

    • Flummoxed Marmoset | April 9, 2021 at 10:03 PM | Reply

      @Bannedfor7thtime Foryoutubecomments They HAVE grilled Cuomo but Cuomo’s mess is not anywhere near as sordid or as fascinating as Gaetz’ Cheerleadergate mess. It’s now the Party of Trump’s turn……..the circle of life…….

  13. The problem with pointing a finger is you have three more fingers pointing back at yourself.

  14. It’s crazy how many politicians are under investigation…. Then it just disappears into thin air… Let me know when someone gets held accountable lol


    • theyre desperate, they have nothing on Gaetz. Quick, dont look at Hunter banging his niece!

    • Yea. Oh Hunter? That’s nothing. Look, we’re going to spend a bunch of money going after a republican again and probably be wrong, again. If they aren’t, and he’s a sleaze bag, then later dude. But I feel this is an extension of the witch hunt.

    As usual I’ll not hold my breath waiting for a Repube being held accountable.
