GOP Reps. Matt Gaetz and Jim Jordan were in fine *cough* form Thursday. Gaetz was pissing vinegar about TikTok, because Gen Z are using it to destroy Donald Trump. The call to ban the popular app in the U.S. was widely mocked, as you can see below.
Matt Gaetz should not have a job in the United States.
Patriots should delete him.

However, it was a picture of Gaetz and Jim Jordan, who apparently talked to the press after the closed-door hearing with ousted SDNY Attorney Geoffrey Berman, that really had people talking.

“It was a lot of nothing. He talked about his removal from the position as creating delays and disruptions yet he would not cite any delays or disruption,” said Rep. Jim Jordan, the ranking Republican on Judiciary pic.twitter.com/Bd7oizW4Zq

Twitter was off to the races.
Matt Gaetz is taking this “adoption” thing too far. First, he adopts Nestor, 19, now some 56-year-old guy named Jim. 😳 pic.twitter.com/HmD31ax55L

Matt Gaetz looks like a stunt double for an extra in the movie Swingers, and Jim Jordan looks like an assistant wrestling coach who covered up a major sex abuse scandal pic.twitter.com/kxaxegG4dd

All I'm saying . . . Gaetz and Gym have never been seen at the same time as these two . . . . pic.twitter.com/AkFKLJ7Ayt

Wiki bios list Matt Gaetz as 5’7” and Jim Jordan as 6’. Something seems off about that. pic.twitter.com/R53wicc3dk

Why doesn't @mattgaetz have an ivory handled cane?

But there was one tweet that made me both laugh and hate myself at the same time. Because it was funny! But it was also by...Matt Gaetz. GAH. Yes, I'm burying this confession and tweet at the bottom in the hopes that maybe you don't make it all the way down here.
If you do, don't worry. I still hate him with the the boundless capacity gifted to me by my conscience, and need for liberal street cred.
Legitimately curious about whether Jim Jordan is paying Matt Gaetz to dress this way in order to make himself look stylish by comparison. pic.twitter.com/GU8F2g2ABS

He gave me $100.
