Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida is being ripped on Twitter after his comments about pro-abortion activists. Many ‘outraged’ users brought up Gaetz’s legal woes with some calling for his arrest.
“Have you watched these pro-abortion, pro-murder rallies? The people are just disgusting,” Gaetz said Saturday night during his speech to Turning Point Action Summit in Tampa, Florida. “Like, why is it that the women with the least likelihood of getting pregnant are the ones most worried about having abortions?
“Nobody wants to impregnate you if you look like a thumb.”
Gaetz called abortion activists overweight, unattractive, and very unlikely to need an abortion.
“These people are odious on the inside and out,” he continued. “They’re like 5-2, 350 pounds and they’re like ‘give me my abortions or I’ll get up and march and protest’ and I’m thinking: ‘March? You look like you got ankles weaker than the legal reasoning behind Roe v. Wade.’
“A few of them need to get up and march. They need to get up and march for like an hour a day, swing those arms, get the blood pumping, maybe mix in a salad.”

Here are just a handful of responses the video got on Twitter—There are hundreds just like them:
-I mean i already know he is an absolute sleazeball but even i can’t believe he said that to a live audience and they CHEERED. Appalled doesn’t go far enough.”
-Says child sex trafficking Capt. Toenail
-Whenever it seems like they have hit bottom they say hold on..you ain’t seen nothin yet…
-Why do 14-yr old boys in men’s bodies get to sit in the legislative body of this country and decide on laws that will impact the rest of us for years?
–Says the guy whose wingman Joel Greenberg is currently cooperating with the feds,” said one, commenting on the video shared by Jong-Fast.
Gaetz is also under attack in the media with Newsweek publishing an article condemning the Republican and reminding readers about the open investigation against him involving an alleged 17-year-old sex worker.
That’s just the start. I imagine by Tuesday, every liberal media outlet will be all over Gaetz. My question is, do you think he went too far?
Personally, it reminded me of a bit from the deceased George Carlin.
