Trump protege mocks coronavirus fears on the floor of the US House


Matt Gaetz is pathetic. His entire existence is built on trying to get Trump's attention and praise...


Matt Gaetz mocks essential coronavirus funding by strapping on a gas mask

While many have joked that the coronavirus is the beginning of a zombie apocalypse, the truth is that it’s a highly contagious disease

If any troll wants to say

is “owning” me because I’m commenting, so be it. But I’ll respond that this is the most immature and unprofessional things I’ve ever seen from a member of Congress. Comport yourself with some dignity, Mr Gaetz , you represent people in Florida.

Matt Gaetz is a Trump protege, who has spent endless hours polishing Trump's nuts. 

I'd like to see a reporter ask Trump to comment on his student jackassing in the halls of Congress about a medical issue that is causing concern around the world.

He is a sleazy scumbag...why doesn't this shit for brains go the families that have lost loved ones to this virus.

There's probably a special place in hell for those who spent time on earth kissing Donald Trump's ass. 

Trump of course wants it both ways, with one face he tells the country he supports funding to fight the virus, with another face he sends his jackasses into Congress to protest spending the money.  This way he can take both sides in case some of his insane supporters complain that their tax payer money was spent to protect the health of the homeless, the unemployed and foreigners.

I wish people in districts would actually see what some of these people do, how they act and vote them out.

We have an overload of idiots in congress making it a lifelong career.

By the way Gaetz did vote yes on the funding. He is on both sides of the issue too.

He looks better with the mask on.

I'm one person who can say that the virus is NO JOKE - I've been living through it.  Almost everything is closed here, and thankfully hardly anyone is out there.  I went out to the bank today, first time out of our home in 6 weeks.  Only a few places for necessities such as food stores and pharmacies and banks are open and nobody goes in them, or even returns to their apartment building without first getting a fever check.  I have to be super careful because of my advanced age.  Everybody outside is wearing a mask, whether or not they are effective.  All of that notwithstanding that in Chongqing where I live, a city-state of 32 million, there have been only less than 600 cases, less than 100 still in hospital with the rest recovered, no deaths at all, and no new cases for more than a week.  I hope for all of you that you do not experience what I have gone through and am still going through.

Whats up with the formatting of this article John?   This is not the first time i've seen you do this and its almost unreadable.

Is it suppose to make people read it more or something?

Inquiring minds want to know.

A proper fitting mask would prevent any odors from seeping in, so he likely didn't realize the stink he was in.jrSmiley_9_smiley_image.gif Probably should cut (pardon the pun) the guy a break.

If you were to use "reply" we all might know who you were directing your comment to and who you were referring to.

Like this? I was commenting on the guy wearing the mask in the article, not to anyone in any thread.

This could be the only way to be completely safe - these are doctors in Wuhan hospitals.

Wash your fucking hands, and don't touch your goddamn face.

On a more serious note, don't listen to politicians (especially the executive office), listen to public health officials and take their advice. Wash your hands frequently, use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not immediately available, avoid people who are sick (i.e. relentless coughing, sneezing, or generally looking like shit), get checked out if you are feeling bad, and m95 masks will not do shit to protect you (leave them for medical professionals), and for fucks sake wash your filthy goddamn hands.

Soap and water, don't touch face...If you have to carry a damn note giving you instructions, do it.
