Matt Gaetz torched after he ramps up attacks on Gen. Milley: 'Only war you fought is against age of consent'
Gaetz, who is being investigated by federal authorities for potential child sex trafficking charges and could reportedly be indicted as soon as next month, launched a Twitter attack on Milley after video of the general schooling Gaetz on critical race theory went viral.
"With Generals like this it's no wonder we've fought considerably more wars than we've won," Gaetz wrote.
Gaetz, the son of a former Florida state senator, has never served in the United States military.
Given this, many of his followers slammed him for attacking the service of a man who has spent the last four decades in the American military.

A postmortem posting on the notorious tech mogul John McAfee's Instagram account has unleashed a wave of new conspiracy theories.
The antivirus software maker was found dead of what Spanish authorities say was suicide in his prison cell Wednesday, and a short time later someone posted a block-letter "Q" on a white background -- which Qanon adherents and others see an omen, reported The Daily Beast.
"Newsmax host Steve Cortes tweeted to his 222,000+ followers, 'So...if Jeffrey Epstein got Vincent Fostered then...did McAfee just get Jeffrey Epsteined?'" the website reported. "Alt-right social media personality Tim Pool tweeted to his 820,000 followers, 'Bull F--KING S--t.' Progressive social media personality BrooklynDad_Defiant wrote to more than 900,000 followers, 'John McAfee died today. They said it was suicide. But HE says he didn't do it. WOW.'"
McAfee, who had long embraced fringe theories, got a tattoo in November 2019 of the word, "$WHACKD," to ensure reports of his own future death would be questioned like Epstein's.
"Getting subtle messages from U.S. officials saying, in effect: 'We're coming for you McAfee! We're going to kill yourself,'" McAfee tweeted at the time, in case his Instagram photo of the tattoo was unclear. "I got a tattoo today just in case. If I suicide myself, I didn't. I was whackd. Check my right arm."
McAfee was arrested in Barcelona in October after he was accused of avoiding taxes on selling the rights to his life story and cryptocurrency promotion, and he had faced two wrongful death suits and accused of drugging and raping a woman who worked for him.
QAnon fans thrilled after OAN host pushes mass 'execution' for people who 'stole' election from Trump
Believers in the QAnon conspiracy theory are enthusiastically circulating a video of a contributor at the Trump-loving One America News calling for the mass execution of the former president's enemies.
Via The Daily Beast's Will Sommer, an OAN contributor this week went off on a rant in which he falsely claimed that "voter fraud" cost former President Donald Trump the 2020 election, and said it was time to think about how to deal with the purported perpetrators.
"Exactly how many people were involved in these efforts to undermine the election?" he asked. "Hundreds? Thousands? Tens of thousands? How many people does it take to carry out a coup against the presidency?"
He then pivoted to the consequences that the purported coup plotters will face once their treachery is exposed.
"In the past, America had a very good solution for dealing with such traitors: Execution," he said.
According to Sommer, the clip has gone viral in QAnon chat rooms.
"I came across the clip because QAnon people are see it as proof that the mass executions are right around the corner," Sommer explains. "Lots of glee in the Q chat rooms, demands for how exactly their imagined executions will be carried out and complaints they had to wait too long."
