Scandal-plagued Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) thought he could attack Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) and skate away unscathed, only for Kinzinger to humiliate Gaetz with one of the sickest burns in American political history.
As you may already know, Gaetz is being investigated by the Department of Justice for sex trafficking an underage girl and several other crimes. His wingman has reportedly flipped on him and one of his former girlfriends/former intern has been interviewed.
Kinzinger is one of the few Republicans who has called on Gaetz to resign because of how big the scandal has become and how damning the evidence is against him.
It took a bit of time, but Gaetz apparently decided to take a shot at Kinzinger, but over a different tweet. Back in February, Kinzinger mocked the GOP effort to oust Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyoming) from her leadership role in the House because it had failed.
Of course, House Republicans have renewed their effort in an attempt to punish Cheney for telling the truth about the 2020 Election in direct refutation of disgraced former President Donald Trump’s lies.
That new effort prompted this childish attack from Gaetz.

Now, Matt Gaetz is the bratty snotty son of a former Florida politician. He feels like he’s entitled to get away with anything and that he doesn’t have to face any consequences for his actions.
Kinzinger, unlike Gaetz, served in the military and rose to the rank of Lt. Colonel in the United States Air Force. Unlike in the Republican Party, there is accountability in the military. In response to his Trump-loving Florida colleague, Kinzinger lived up to his last name and delivered a zinger for the ages in reference to Gaetz’s predilection for underage girls.
I’d stay away from “aging well” tweets

It’s beyond pathetic that Gaetz is still in Congress and remains on his committee assignments despite being investigated for serious crimes while Cheney is being punished just for telling the truth. That tells you just how low the Republican Party has sunk.
