Matt Gaetz, who is 38, and his… son… who is 19… His… son… emigrated in 2014. So Matt, unmarried, age 32 and having by that point already received 16 speeding tickets and a DUI, was apparently able and willing to adopt a 13 year old emigree. This… seems fucking weird. Is this fucking weird? Also, this is not really relevant right now but it’s also pretty fucking weird: he apparently grew up in the house used in The Truman Show?


This goes even further than “Black friend”


> After disclosing he has a son the following day, Gaetz suggested he wanted to clear the air of partisan rhetoric. “I was triggered when (to make an absurd debate point) a fellow congressman diminished the contributions of Republicans because we don’t raise non-white kids,” he tweeted. So the white male Republican who was “triggered” after a black person emphasized the struggles black people face while not acknowledging the fact that white male Republican had an adopted child of color who was never publicly identified was concerned about clearing partisan rhetoric. Ok. Ok.


Who hasn’t gone to Cuba and came home with a bottle of rum, a few cigars, or a 13 year old boy.


This has been huge news since yesterday, yet it is nowhere on reddit. This is the weirdest fucking thing I’ve seen in a long time, but yet it can’t gain any traction? Feels like something fishy is going on.
