I’d like to say Matt Gaetz has taken an epic fall from rarefied heights, but who are we kidding? This is the guy who sarcastically donned a gas mask on the House floor at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and childishly trolled a fellow Republican after she voted to hold Donald Trump accountable for inciting insurrection.
So this isn’t a fall from grace so much as a tiny tumble from slightly less disgrace than two weeks ago, when he was merely a heinous House rep with an Igloo cooler-sized head full of Axe body spray fumes and per-during shame.
Now? After four years of wearing Donald John Trump’s ass as a hat, he looks like he may be well on his way to donning orange yet again.
But don’t take my word for it. The lawyer for Matt’s BFF and partner-in-grime, former Seminole County Tax Collector Joel Greenberg, is pretty confident that Gaetz is in deep shite, because his own client appears to be cooperating with federal prosecutors.
