Gaetz was asked about his controversial comments this weekend at the
Nazi youth rally Turning Point USA Student Action Summit. He responded about as you'd expect an entitled frat boy whose daddy bought him a congressional seat in a deep red district that is never ever going to vote for any Democrat would respond. Behaving like the horse's ass he is.

PENSACOLA, Fla. -- Northwest Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz on Monday stood by controversial comments he made this past weekend regarding female abortion rights protesters.
On Saturday, Gaetz spoke to college students at the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit in Tampa, saying women protesting abortion access are less likely to get pregnant because they aren't attractive.
"Why is it that the women with the least likelihood of getting pregnant are the ones most worried about having abortions?" Gaetz said. "Nobody wants to impregnate you if you look like a thumb."
Gaetz stood by his comments when asked about them by Channel 3, Pensacola.
GAETZ: "I'm very pro-life and I make no apology for it. I'm grateful that Roe has been overturned and that Dobbs is now the jurisprudence on abortion. I find these people that go out in these pro-abortion, pro-murder rallies odious -- and just, like, ugly on the inside and out. I make no apology for it. I don't believe that every person who disagrees with my perspective on life is an ugly person. But the ones that are out there protesting and marching on Justice [Brett] Kavanaugh's home, trying to threaten the court, trying to impose a 'night of rage' on our nation's Capitol -- which us what they advertised -- that's just pure ugliness. I see that ugliness on the inside, I see it on the outside. Even in the horrible circumstance where an abortion may happen, it is nothing to celebrate and it is nothing to cheer."
CHANNEL 3: "Is it safe to say that, based off your comments, you're suggesting that these women at these abortion rallies are ugly and overweight?"
CHANNEL 3: "What do you say to people who think those comments are offensive?"
GAETZ: "Be offended."
Gaetz followed up later with this tweet mocking Whoopi Goldberg.
