Matt Gaetz kicked off his reelection campaign on Saturday in Walnut Hill, Florida where a whopping crowd of less than 30 people showed up to hear him and Marjorie Taylor Greene speak.
Northescambia.com reports: Walnut Hill is a small, unincorporated rural community that is almost as far as one can go to the northwest in Gaetz’s Northwest Florida district. Its population is but a tiny speck of the 800,000 or so people in Florida’s 1st Congressional District. It was his only stop Saturday in Escambia County and came after afternoon events in Crestview and Milton. Gaetz said he was proud to visit the far corner of the district to kick off his campaign even though, as he expected, the crowd was small.
Gaetz’s “adopted son” Nestor was not seen in the small group in attendance.

On Thursday, the House passed a Democratic-sponsored bill to cap the price of insulin at $35 a month for most Americans, an effort to crack down on price-gouging by drug makers who have raised the price of a lifesaving product used by millions of Americans by almost 500 percent in recent years .Among those voting “no” was Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), the GOP’s leading troll, who has come up with perhaps one of the most offensive justifications for GOP opposition to the popular bill. In his newsletter Friday, Gaetz told his constituents that he opposed the bill because fat people, not Big Pharma, are responsible for driving up the cost of insulin. He suggested that Type 2 diabetes, which is often linked to obesity, could be cured if only people would workout more and lose weight, at which point they wouldn’t need insulin anymore and the drug costs would fall without government intervention.
Not only does Gaetz doesn’t he understand diabetes, he doesn’t understand the pharma business. ut then again he is paid millions by drug lobbyist not to.
An “Anti-January 6 Commission” press conference headlined by Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene spiraled into a delicious train-wreck when a few protestors with a whistle interrupted the Tuesday afternoon TRATORFEST before ultimately being canceled amid calls from reporters asking Matt Gaetz if he was a pedophile!
The press conference was taking place outside the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington DC. Greene and Gaetz were joined by (Loopy) Louie Gohmert (Texas) and Paul Gosar (Arizona).
According to a release, the press conference was regarding the “treatment of Jan. 6th prisoners.” Tuesday morning, the House Select Committee held their first hearing on the investigation into the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
Republican frat boy party animal Matt Gaetz took to Twitter to announce that “he is not gay” and while srill referring to 19-year-old Nestor Galban as his son stops short of saying he had formally adopted him.
In Geatz’s latest “Hot Takes” podcast, he describes how Galban is the brother of an “ex-girlfriend” of his and that “I sort of feel like a single step-parent at times” adding “I don’t have any biological children, but I absolutely have a
Happy Daddy’s Day Matt!
Our relationship as a family is defined by our love for each other, not by any paperwork. He’s part of my family story, in every conceivable way, and I can’t imagine loving him any more if he was my own flesh and blood.” Matt Gaetz – People Magazine.
