‘Matt Gaetz is a Tool’ is Trending on Twitter Because Once Again He Said Something Unbearably Stupid
Matt Gaetz seems to embody the MAGA politician to a “T.” He is a frat boy who inherited his wealth and position, was elected as a MAGA Republican in the most MAGA district in Florida, and has been more willing than all but a few insane GOP congressman to back Trump through any issue, no matter how extreme.
Today, in response to a typical Gaetz tweet meant to support Trump by slamming Joe Biden, the internet turned its laser-like focus on Gaetz. First, let’s set out Gaetz’s tweet that started it all:
In Joe Biden’s America your job is illegal, you are locked in your home, borders don’t exist, MS-13 lives next door and the police aren’t coming when the mob arrives.
This is all of us. pic.twitter.com/qS5ZeZQyU8

Only Matt Gaetz could take a picture of two “In-need-of-a-mental-hold” people and use it as a positive image he wants to be associated with the Right. Who wouldn’t want to be armed like a paramilitary group when Joe Biden’s America sets in?

MS-13 is not next door in your gated community, if you are locked in the house it is because COVID is still raging due to Trump’s earlier horrific policies, the police are coming, we just hope they’re not loaded up in a military tank and not shooting black people in the back or choking them to death.
So that’s Matt Gaetz doing his best to be the best Trumper. Except this time he’s hearing it from Twitter, trending for all the wrong reasons.
I dare someone to find me a photograph of a black man aiming an AR-15 at innocent, peaceful white people without later being arrested or killed by the police.

The photo was taken in Trump's America.

Yes, that is the point. In Trump’s America, white people are encouraged to put black people or “leftists” in their sites with weapons of war. After all, to Trumpers and their “Boogaloo” folks, it is a war.
Jesus, get a grip, Herbert.

No, Trump and guns are his grip. This picture represents the MAGA fantasy. It is why they voted for Trump in the first place. Longing for an America where this is alright.
This is interesting. It proves nothing but it is interesting:
What about Matt Gaetz's America?
– the roommate who mysteriously died
– the multiple DUIs & no punishment
– the mysterious "son" who nobody knew about
– the solo vote against the anti-human trafficking bill
– the relentless effort to copy Trumphttps://t.co/ZNKaRvfcDq

In Trump’s America you get to use intimidation and point your guns at peaceful protesters so you can stop them from exercising their first amendment right.

Move to Russia, where you belong. #PutinsGOP
