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.

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.

Twitter was off to the races.

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.

Can you help us out?
