Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, April 06, 2021

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) built a public profile as an unapologetic, unambiguous, omnipresent booster of President Donald Trump. But as his own political career skids toward disaster amid allegations that he had sex with a minor and paid for sex with women of legal age, neither Trump nor anyone in the ex-president's orbit is rushing to Gaetz's defense. A group that often instinctively decries any such charge as part of some nefarious, coordinated witch hunt from deep-state operators has, instead, said virtually nothing at all.

"The reason you haven't seen people in MAGA world defending Gaetz is less about him being unpopular, which he is in a lot of circles, and more about the fact that he hasn't done a single thing to make people comfortable to defend him. His interview with Tucker was an absolutely embarrassing train wreck," said one Trump confidant.

All Gaetz is doing is burnishing his GOP credentials for a run at higher office. He's just following the ------- Eric Greitens playbook.

Gaetz learned everything he could from Trump.

And anybody in Trump's orbit that thinks this wouldn't happen to them is an idiot. In Trump world everybody is dispensable.

"Over and over again, Gaetz showed Republicans exactly who he was. But until word of an actual FBI investigation made the news, not one of them made a move to speak out against Gaetz. No Republican turned those nude videos into an ethics complaint. No Republican warned that Gaetz was bragging about the women he picked up through an indicted sex trafficker."

BTW, Gaetz was one of only 2 state legislators to vote against a bill banning revenge porn.

"Why didn't Republicans do anything before Gaetz got elected?"

I heard a conservative commentator yesterday say that Gaetz was using the Dotard playbook, but what most people on the Reich who use the playbook don't realize is that they're not Combover Quisling and as such cannot get away with half the immoral BS he gets away with.

Trump's wealth made him able to pay people off and afford an army of lawyers to protect him.

A creepy Congress jerk doesn't have that much power.
