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

Published

Rep. Matthew Louis Gaetz, II (R-FL) is the son of Donald J. "Don" Gaetz, the former President of the state Senate.

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.”

Published

Republicans have been "working frantically behind the scenes" to keep President Donald Trump on message during his Saturday campaign rally in Georgia, but the efforts do not seem to be working.

GOP strategists hoped Trump would make the case for the two GOP senators in the January runoff elections that will decide control of the U.S. Senate, but Trump has continued to fixate on his delusions that he won the presidential election.

Aboard Air Force One on the flight to the rally, Trump attacked two GOP governors: Brian Kemp of Georgia and Doug Ducey of Arizona -- and seemed to threaten political retribution for the pair not going along with the president's debunked conspiracy theories about the election.

Trump's visit also comes against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic.

GOP officials are working frantically behind the scenes to try to keep the president on script at the rally, worried that he will use the forum to attack Kemp and other state GOP officials who have resisted his pressure, according to a person familiar with the discussions," The Washington Post reported Saturday.
