'Dork' Matt Gaetz goes down in flames after comparing Donald Trump to Chuck Norris

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) joked that President Donald Trump was too tough to get seriously ill from the coronavirus, and was drowned in ridicule.


The Florida Republican cracked a "Chuck Norris facts"-style joke about the president's COVID-19 infection to imply the potentially deadly virus had more to fear from its obese, 74-year-old host than the president did from his infection.

"President Trump won't have to recover from COVID," Gaetz tweeted. "COVID will have to recover from President Trump. #MAGA"

Gaetz, who has publicly mocked public safety measures to protect against infection, was met with swift derision.
