Politico just put this story up: Gaetz to be featured speaker at pro-Trump women’s group event
Rep. Matt Gaetz, mired in an ongoing federal sex trafficking investigation, is headed to former President Donald Trump’s resort in Doral this Friday where he will be a featured speaker at a summit hosted by a conservative pro-Trump women’s group.
The group is Women for America First, which helped organize the Jan. 6 rally-and-insurrection.
The organization praised Gaetz as one of the “few members of Congress” willing to “stand up & fight on behalf of President Trump & his America First agenda.” Women For America First says on its website that “We won’t be pushed around by bullies who tell us who we are ‘supposed’ to like. And we’re not going to keep quiet just because the Washington, D.C. power elites and mainstream media want us to!”
Funny they should put it that way, because Gaetz behaves exactly like a bully who thinks he’s entitled to do whatever he wants with women (and girls, especially girls). And he brags about it, another mark of the bully.
This is nuts. This is a guy that even Trump is (somehow) keeping his mouth shut about, and yet these Trump-worshipers want him. To speak. To them.
Which brings me to one last twist in the saga: Trump will be there.
The summit being held at Doral coincides with a Republican National Committee spring donor retreat being held about 70 miles north in Palm Beach. Trump is scheduled to attend the retreat.
Will Trump do a “Barr” and avoid being photographed with him? Or will he develop a sudden urge to go golfing?
I’ve been Dan K for a long time here, but I went away while I was in the Peace Corps (Kenya) and then while I was working as a Foreign Service Officer. But that’s all behind me now.
