Matt Gaetz (R-Florida) was widely believed to have been a frontrunner to join a select group of House Republicans to defend the president through media outreach and providing consultation to his legal team, but he was snubbed. In an interview with Politico, Gaetz said he wasnt entirely sure why he was kept off the team, but he has been told by someone in the White House that Eric Ueland, the
The correct date on this story is March 5.
This was way back when the message was that coronavirus was a hoax, no more serious than the flu, and the White House was suggesting people should keep going to work even if they have it.
What a difference 6 days makes.
Probably good for the gas of Nancy Pelosi
#1. If that is Miss Florida, I’m moving down there. Nice to see a woman who looks like a woman (and not Omar the Tent Wearer, Jihad Tlaib, Bad Hair Day Forever Waters, and Sheila Jackson Lee Jeff Davis.
