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.

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

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.
