Matt Gaetz isn’t letting that whole teen sex scandal/sex trafficking probe prevent him from speaking at a conservative women’s conference at Donald Trump‘s Miami golf course later this week.
On Friday, the antigay lawmaker from Florida, who is currently under investigation for allegedly sleeping with a 17-year-old girl, will give remarks at Women for America First’s Save America Summit.
“Join me at Trump Doral Friday!” Gaetz tweeted yesterday afternoon. “Thank you to ‘Women for America First’ for the invitation to share my vision for our great nation.”

The fact that Gaetz, who voted against renewing the Violence Against Women Act just last month, is being billed as the group’s “Special Guest” tells you pretty much everything you need to know about, well, everything.
And now, the responses…
That tweet will age poorly

Child trafficker who supports a guy who said he grabs women by the pussy, way too much irony.

Isn't that crowd a little old for you, Matt?
And even if you get to see him, he can't pardon you anymore.
