Pretty Boy Rep. Matt Gaetz stopped looking in his mirror lately because the news hasn't been good.
The free-wheeling hypocrite and all-around bad boy is fighting sex charges and trying to conflate them with another investigation on his illegal activities.
Gaetz's reactions to the trouble he's in are desperate attempts at saving his job and ass.
In a Washington Examiner op-ed Gaetz claimed, "The swamp is out to drown me with false charges."
The Swamp Thing
When Trump cheated his way into office in 2016, one of the reoccurring themes of his rants at rallies was clearing out the swamp.
In reality he created a super swamp stocked with liars and cheats. After four years of foul and toxic political activities the swamp is still so deep it's going to take the Biden administration years to clean it up.
Meanwhile Gaetz blithely moves forward with his false claims hoping someone will be stupid enough to believe him.
A casual observer of the scandal can see that his fellow Republicans are not falling over each other supporting him.
Perhaps the most deafening silence has come from Trump, who hasn't commented on Gaetz's plight.
After four years of slavish devotion Gaetz is getting thrown under the bus by the man he revered. Interestingly enough, former Trump aides are speaking out now. They feel vindicated in not trusting Gaetz.
One aide told the press, "He's the meanest person in politics," summarizing the overall view of Pretty Boy's career in Washington DC.
Gaetz, who led the way into Trump's swamp, is trying to re-write history in a desperate attempt at saving his job and career.
It may be time for Gaetz to get another mirror that's not so truthful.
