Donald Trump crony Matt Gaetz (R-FL) was humiliated by fellow GOP congressman Adam Kinzinger for attempting to rile-up members of the Republican party against the Illinois lawmaker for supporting Rep. Liz Cheney, who was ousted from her leadership post on Wednesday.
Gaetz resurfaced a tweet from Kinzinger in February, when Republicans first tried to remove Ms. Cheney for voting to impeach Donald Trump for inciting the Capitol riot.
At the time, Kinzinger tweeted that Gaetz was “wrong, by like a huuuuuuge margin” for claiming there were enough votes to ouster Ms. Cheney, ahead of the first attempt by Trump allies. The Florida congressman also falsely alleged that “the establishment” would overturn the results of the first vote, in February.
Ahead of Wednesday’s vote, Gaetz resurfaced the tweet by the Illinois congressman and wrote: “Tweets that don’t age well”.
His tweet backfired when Kinzinger hit back by tweeting at Gaetz – who is facing a federal investigation for allegations of sexual trafficking and – “I’d stay away from ‘ageing well’ tweets.”
As expected other Twitter users piled up.
I’d stay away from “aging well” tweets

Who actually votes for Matt Gaetz? Every time I’ve ever scrolled thru the replies to his tweets it’s nothing but people clowning him. You might see a supporter occasionally but they’re outnumbered 100-1. Really makes you wonder if the elections he’s won were rigged.

It's going to be so much fun for folks to repost ALL of your tweets that won't age well when your arse is in the clink. 🤣

Adam Kinzinger is not going to prison for human trafficking.

Gaetz is facing charges for prostituting a minor but has so little concern that he might lose his position within the GOP that he is gloating over Cheney being ousted from the party because she told the truth about the 2020 election.
That's how bad the GOP is now.
