Internet burns Matt Gaetz to the ground for whining McCabe didn’t end up ‘behind bars’

Published

on

Controversial Florida Republican Matt Gaetz was disappointed on Saturday that former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe will not be imprisoned — despite the fact the DOJ found no grounds on which to even prosecute the former official.

“It’s a disgrace that Andrew McCabe isn’t going to be behind bars,” Rep. Gaetz posted on Twitter. “We can’t live in a world where an old FBI business card doubles as a ‘get out of jail free card’ when people break the law.”

Here’s how Christian Nationalists have shaped the federal government’s response to coronavirus

On Thursday, appearing on the Slate radio show "The Gist" with Mike Pesca, journalist Catherine Stewart outlined some of the ways the Christian Right is responsible for the federal government's disastrous response to coronavirus.

"The coronavirus pandemic is real wrath-of-God type stuff, isn't it?" said Pesca. "Well, there are some people who are waiting for this, who are ready for this, and who, quite scarily, have been tasked with the response."

"It's a complex question, and I think that Christian Nationalism, which is what we're dealing with here, is not a religion," said Stewart. "Many evangelicals are doing very positive things, many religious people are doing a lot of positive things in this situation with the coronavirus. But Christian Nationalism is not a religion, it's a political ideology that cloaks itself in religious rhetoric. And it's a movement that put Trump in power."
