Wait, what?

I guess if trolling is your only marketable skill, then moving from Republican Congressman to Newsmax on-air "talent" is a step up.

Matt Gaetz is apparently floating the "news" that he will be leaving Congress to join the team at Newsmax. Axios reports, "Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) has privately told confidants he's seriously considering not seeking re-election and possibly leaving Congress early for a job at Newsmax, three sources with direct knowledge of the talks tell Axios."

Twitter was quick to respond:
