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.
Read some of the responses below.
I see we've reached the always sad “retweeting known criminal and schizophrenic, Randy Quaid" phase of @RepMattGaetz's implosion.
Fun fact: Just like Matt Gaetz, Randy Quaid is a sleazy criminal. Here's why he can't come into the US anymore:https://t.co/BourX55oaf pic.twitter.com/2gFrzlR87Q

Randy Quaid is too insane to re-enter America. Think about that, Gaetz
You got some great character witnesses

Matt Gaetz is a creepy pedophile. And Randy Quaid is a flaky creep.
