Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) lied when he was speaking to CNN's Manu Raju that he wasn't paying much attention when Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) explained that members with DUIs probably shouldn't be attacking someone for drug usage.


“I didn’t pay much attention to it ...I’m focused on the president .. I don’t think Americans are hanging on a traffic incident I had a decade ago,” Gaetz told Raju.

It wasn't factually accurate as videos show Gaetz paying quite a bit of attention and seemingly upset.
