Matt Gaetz is absolutely furious that some Republicans in Congress didn’t immediately jump on the bandwagon to condemn the FBI this week, and he called them out during an appearance on Newsmax. What drove Gaetz up the wall was that some of these Republicans actually wanted to wait until the facts came out before rushing to judgement, and that can’t fly in today’s GOP. Farron Cousins discusses this.

Ladies and gentlemen, Republican representative, Matt gates is angry. He is furious at certain members of his own party because those members did not have the same kind of knee-jerk reaction to the news of the FBI going into Mar Lago that people like Matt gates had. And instead those individuals who wouldn’t immediately condemn the FBI, do you know what they had the audacity to do? They came out, believe it or not, and said, why don’t we wait for more facts to emerge? Can you believe that? I mean, honest to God. Can you believe that we have sitting members of Congress that don’t wanna make a snap judgment about something they know nothing about and would rather learn more about it before having an opinion? Holy crap, what has this country come to at this point? So here is what Matt gates ran Newsmax this week whining about. He said, speaking directly to Tim Scott, Republican representative. We should wait and hear all this out, wait and see how it goes. That’s exactly what the weak Republicans were saying. During the Mueller investigation. I feel like I’ve seen this movie before where McConnell and a lot of McConnell lights say, oh, well, we should ring our hands in. Hope that president Trump didn’t break the law.
I wish I was making that up. I wish I had read that quote wrong, but I didn’t that’s that’s legitimately what he said, Matt gates not known to be the brightest ball out there is angry that people won’t make snap decisions and judgements and form opinions without having all the facts. I mean, I know because I’ve said this a million times, that the only thing that matters in today’s Republican party is loyalty to Donald Trump. I just, I never realized that these people would go out there and straight up say that you don’t need the facts. You don’t need to worry about. What’s actually happening. All you have to do is just fall in line, but, but here, you know, worded a little bit differently, but that’s, that’s what Matt gates is essentially saying here. Like how dare you sit and wait for the facts to come in. I mean, we already know that we don’t like this, so just condemn it and act like it’s all overblown. And that it’s a weaponization of the DOJ. What is wrong with you? People? In my opinion, Matt gates is not just in a cult, right? Matt gates is more like a cult enforcer, right? The number two or number three in the hierarchy here. Okay. He knows it’s a cult. He knows
That we all have to show, you know, devotion to dear leader here, or else we’re gonna get in trouble gates himself, by the way, ran into trouble a couple years ago. You know, when he voted to limit the P uh, president’s power to just unilaterally, you know, attack other countries, and Trump got at him for it, kind of cut him off, shut him out for a few months. So gates understands like, okay, look, I the dude off once. I’m not gonna do it again. So I’m gonna go out here and I’m gonna be a good little enforcer. I’m gonna make sure everybody does whatever they have to to show Donald Trump that they love him. Don’t make the same mistakes. I did folks, Matt gates telling us, show your undying loyalty, make these snap judgments make crap up. Which of course is what the Republicans are doing right now.
Trying to say that the FBI went in there and planted evidence. Don’t wait for the facts. Don’t worry that Donald Trump’s not releasing the warrant, which would tell us exactly why they were there and what they were after and what they ended up taking. Don’t worry about all that. You know, they’re sure there’s a totally legit reason why he is hiding. That don’t be like Mitch McConnell. Don’t just hope that Trump didn’t commit crimes. Just go out there and say he didn’t, regardless of the facts, because for far too long, Republicans have lived in a world where they don’t have to have facts on their side. They just go out there, say random, crazy, stupid things in their bay, eats it up. But this is one instance where eventually the facts are gonna come out. And Matt gates knows that kind of like Matt gates knows that’s gonna happen in a different investigation. One that actually involves him. So it’s not surprising that Matt gates doesn’t want people, uh, to, you know, wait for the facts to come out. He says, no, no, no, make your judgment. Now the FBI is terrible.
