Progressive Democrats really do hate Matt Gaetz


Liberal congressional Democrats loathe President Donald Trump and would give one of their eyes to see him impeached.

But the one Republican member of the U.S. Congress Democrats and Twitter trolls hate the most is Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz.

Let me be fair to Gaetz’s detractors and emphasize the word “hate.”

It is also fair to say that Gaetz’s very liberal colleagues in the House of Representatives, detest him. They respect him, but Gaetz’s tendency to all-but eviscerate and embarrass House Democrats during committee hearings or on social media unnerves them.

Because Gaetz is smart and can articulate a narrative and smackdown on Democrats with the best of them, extremists’ heads blow up whenever he speaks, prompting them to revert to the only tired attack against him they can muster.

Yeah, they call him all kinds of derogatory names and link him to Trump, but the main point Twitter trolls attack him on is his 2008 DUI arrest.

Gaetz is said to get a kick out of the comments Twitter trolls leave on posts he makes. For example, Gaetz’s recently posted an op-ed in Fox News calling out Google’s biased and shady business practices, of which he shared on Twitter, brought out all the silliness you can imagine.

It’s like the Twitter version of the Star Wars bar scene came alive and melted down over Gaetz’s statements about Google.

The comments were nothing less than hysterical, and the memes were priceless, as Gaetz was accused of being arrested for DUI, not twice, but seven times.

Gaetz only has one DUI arrest.

While Gaetz laughs and eventually gets a good night of sleep, Twitter twits and some of their “award-winning” anti-Gaetz comments are on full display. Here are just a few of them.
