Why is Matt Gaetz acting like a human type person?

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Why is Matt Gaetz acting like a human type person?

After being so easy to hate for so long he's done a couple of things recently that don't quite fit.


"@KatieHill4CA gets run out of Congress for screwing a campaign staffer absent any complaint,” Gaetz (R-Florida) tweeted Monday afternoon."

“@SenatorBurr stays as Intelligence Chairman after screwing all Americans by falsely reassuring us w opeds on #COVID while he dumped his stock portfolio early. This is not fair,”"

A rabid repug attacking a repug senator while acknowledging the mistreatment of a democratic. What could possibly be his motive? Possibly Populist President of the Puture

In other news, snow is forecast for July in Florida

:D Don't buy that parka quite yet.

It COULD be that "Gas mask" Gaetz is suddenly on the side of the angels, now a nonpartisan corruption hawk and champion of fairness. However, ascribing sleazier motives to him:

He's a blindly loyal Trumpette;
This is revenge on Burr for running a SOMEWHAT fair Senate Intelligence Committee Russia investigation;
Katie Hill is easy to exploit because she ain't getting her seat back no matter what nice things are said about her.
Gaetz Slams Thom Tillis for ‘Low-Energy’ Response to Insider Trading Allegation against Fellow N.C. Senator

... Gaetz, an outspoken Trump ally, tweeted earlier Friday to criticize Burr for his role in subpoenaing Donald Trump Jr. to question his role in a June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Trump campaign officials and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.

“Worth noting that Chairman Burr was swampily complicit in dragging an innocent @DonaldJTrumpJr before Senate Intel time & time again. The nerve,” Gaetz tweeted, before later adding that “with all of the money Chairman Burr saved in the #SenateSelloff, maybe he can reimburse the legal bills innocent people incurred during the phony Senate Russia investigation he led?” ...
Idk what Gaetz has against Tillis. Seems to me that Tillis did what most pols will do when the accused is from their own party - support further info. gathering. Some would have defended their colleague more enthusiastically. Not that I'm complaining. With Tillis being vulnerable in Nov I support all attacks on him, fair or not :twisted: .

I'm buying nothing that he or miller before him or Scarborough before him has ever said or done. There are hidden motives in all that they do.

The panhandle does send some of the worst to Congress
