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.
In contrast to Donald Trump’s shambolic bearing, appearance, and comportment, Aldous J. Pennyfarthing is a natty hail-fellow-well-met and a gentleman.
