So what do you get when you join an accused pedophile who also sits in Congress with another one who recently had her committee assignments revoked for her violent social media posts for a tour around the country? Well, according to reports, you heard a Trump-like rally where the two spent as much time attacking their own Republican Party as they did the Democrats. In short, it was wacked.

Take for example, the sight of old white people singing along and waving their arms to Freddie Mercury's "We Are The Champions," pretty much given the circumstances with Gaetz and Greene becoming an ode to white supremacy right there. And once Gaetz and Greene began speaking it didn't get any better either.

Two of the most controversial members of Congress declared war on the establishment in the launch of their America First tour Friday night in The Villages.

Congressman Matt Gaetz, embroiled in a sex trafficking scandal, and Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, stripped of any committee assignments, wore their renegade status as a badge of honor before a mostly maskless red-white-and-blue packed house at the Brownwood Hotel & Spa. A long line snaked around the exterior of the building, but the hopefuls had no realistic chance of landing a spot in the 300-person room, which filled up early. Gaetz estimated the crowd outside at 1,000 strong.

Villagers made up a sizable chunk of those inside, many of them regularly seen at Trump rallies in the past in Florida’s Friendliest Hometown.

Probably its whitest too.

An old Trump trick, give away a lot more tickets than the room will hold, so the rubes can stand around in the hot sunshine for the tv cameras.

A sampling of some of the fine folks who attended.

And a reminder of what kind of people they went to see.
