On Thursday, GOP Reps. Matt Gaetz (FL), Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA), and Louie Gohmert (TX) attempted to pull a media stunt by showing up at a correctional facility housing MAGA rioters who attacked the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, claiming that to check on the welfare of the MAGA “political prisoners.” But their attempt failed after they were denied access to the building.

Before Gaetz could open the door, it was locked by an officer.

“They think we’re trespassing,” Greene complained.

Now, the lawmakers are being ridiculed on social media after complaining that prison officials refused to allow them to enter the building.

Right-wing news outlets OAN and RSBN covered the lawmakers’ attempt to enter the facility.
