GOP’s Matt Gaetz gets taken to the woodshed for lusting after AOC: ‘His unsolicited thirst is extremely weird’

Published

on

Trump-loving Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has regularly made comments about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) appearance — and one Florida columnist is calling him out for being a creep.

Writing in the Miami New Times, columnist Jerry Iannelli takes Gaetz to the woodshed for the multiple times he’s made leering remarks about his congressional colleague from New York.

“[Gaetz] quotes include repeated statements that he finds her ‘attractive,'” writes Iannelli. “He’s called her ‘adorable.’ And in a reference to the dating app Tinder, he even creepily told TMZ this month that he’d ‘swipe right’ on the idea of working across the aisle with her… In a Daily Caller interview last Thursday in which he alternated between insulting her intelligence and complimenting her, Gaetz once again felt the need to comment on Ocasio-Cortez’s looks. He referred to her as an ‘attractive lady from Queens.'”

Iannelli then says Gaetz’s obsession with Ocasio-Cortez is akin to stalker-like behavior.

“His unsolicited thirst is extremely weird,” he writes. “In his repeated interviews about AOC, he condescendingly calls her ideas dumb and ‘dangerous for the country.’ He also says she is good-looking and begs her to work with him.”

Former White House communications director Hope Hicks on Wednesday denied under oath knowing anything about the hush-money scheme set up by former Trump "fixer" Michael Cohen to pay off President Donald Trump's former mistresses.

"Hicks told lawmakers today that she did not have knowledge during 2016 campaign of hush-money payments made in run-up to election," reports CNN's Manu Raju. "Also she wouldn’t discuss what she learned about those payments during her time at White House because of immunity claims."

Trump’s 2020 campaign strategy is familiar: Troll the libs!

Published

on

Late on Tuesday, I got an email from an unusual source. A reporter for the conservative publication the Washington Examiner asked if I'd be interested in sharing thoughts on Joe Biden's history of joking "about 'locking up your daughters'" and on "Biden's view of women and gender relations." This was in light of my previous criticisms of Biden's apparent condescension towards girls and women, and his pockmarked history on gender relations in general.

Cory Booker rips Biden for praising racist senators: ‘You don’t joke about calling black men boys’

Published

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) blasted Joe Biden for praising two segregationist senators he'd served with as a lawmaker.

The former vice president and current Democratic presidential frontrunner reminisced about his relationship with Mississippi Democrat James Eastland and Georgia Democrat Herman Talmadge, two notoriously racist senators during the Civil Rights era, reported The Hill.

“At least there was some civility, we got things done," Biden said, recalling that Eastland had never called him "boy." "We didn't agree on much of anything. We got things done, we got it finished."
