Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) on Sunday resorted to defending himself by retweeting controversial actor Randy Quaid.

In a tweet over the weekend, Quaid suggested that the deep state was trying to take down Gaetz for something that he planned to expose.

"What was @mattgaetz trying to expose just before he was assaulted by fake news? THINK ABOUT IT!" Quaid wrote.

Gaetz quickly shared the tweet with his followers.

But commenters suggested that Gaetz had retweeted Quaid out of desperation.
