Get ready to cringe.
Matt Gaetz was tricked into posing for a photo with a guy pretending to be a superfan who then proceeded to point out how the antigay congressman has been accused of being a pedophile.
The incident happened on a beach in California over the weekend. Gaetz was in the state along with QAnon congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene for their “America First” fundraising tour, which has reportedly cost them four times more than they’ve actually made.

Video of the cringeworthy confrontation was shared on Twitter by MeidasTouch.com. It shows a man dressed in American flag regalia running up to the pair and saying, “Oh, my God! I’m so excited! Everybody thinks you’re crazy. I don’t think you’re crazy!”
Then he tells Gaetz, “People think you’re a pedophile! I don’t think you’re a pedophile. I don’t think you’re a pedophile at all. The charges against him are totally false.”
That’s when the Gaetz turns to a nearby security guard, who quickly ushers the man away.
Matt Gaetz will only take photos with supporters who acknowledge he is a pedophile. pic.twitter.com/mNL3OIq0yz

Definitely a pedophile. Where is the Q outrage? *cricket*
Reminds me of the Tea Party totally disappearing when tangerine hitler came to power.
@ChrisK, so true. I know of one hardcore Tea Partier who constantly screamed that Obama was spending money like a drunken sailor (he wasn’t, we suffered through fiscal austerity during much of his second term, etc., even as the economy kept growing), but when Don the Con and the GOP started spending like there was no tomorrow, it was radio silence. Don the Con blew the deficit and the debt up to levels previously unseen and kept spending, screwing up, etc. Of course now that Biden’s in office, it’s “the debt is out of control,” the deficit, blah blah. They are so full of sh!t!
I just love the moment the smile is wiped from Gaetz’ face! Just watch his face and the uncomfortableness when he drop the smile.
he stopped looking like donny osmond then, didn’t he?
He’s a Republican politician, isn’t the Pedophile part kind of a given?
Ha ha ha! Oh my! Matt Gaetz squirms and looks around to see who is watching and listening to the words that he is a Pedophile!
Love it. We need more people doing this to this Q duo.
Very enjoyable video – the American flag outfit makes it. This beach looks like Orange County where these two misfits were looking for allies – I read that at least three venues rejected their dog and pony show, but they eventually found a place in Riverside county that would take them. These two are really the dregs. America has got to do better.
Love this video!!
Is there somebody with authority and credibility – Oprah maybe – who might be able to teach Americans what a pedophile actually is??!!
I doubt it. As a nation we are not big fans of education.
Even Michael Jackson was not a pedophile, but an ephebophile sp?).
Actual pedophiles are monsters of the worst sort, preying on children of either sex who are nowhere near puberty and who are as often as not physically injured by sexual advances. Actual pedophiles lose interest in children when they approach puberty. It is truly sick, beyond criminal.
THIS! Is everything. Bloop.
Even better than the morons like Corey Lewendowski and Tomi Lahren being pranked into thanking Satan for supporting Trump. On Cameo. Where D Listers get paid to film videos for $50. Republicans. Yay!
So, literally the two worst Republicans are on a promotion tour together. I am exhausted by the non-relenting stream of stupid that insults my rationality daily.
OK folks, words have actual meanings, and the extent to which we insist on making up our own is the extent to which we are as bad as all the right wing trolls out there.
Call Gaetz what you will (homophobe, con artist, idiot, anti-american…all those and more fit like a glove) there is no evidence at all that he is a pedophile, which is a term that refers to people who have sex with PREPUBESCENT children, generally of either sex as it is the lack of secondary sexual characteristics that attract them. Sick as hell, but not Matt Gaetz based on all current evidence.
He is suspected of SEX TRAFFICKING with an individual below the age of consent, and a few other things. He is not under suspicion of pedophilia, as you can be sure that any 17 year old girl without breasts, public hair and a menstrual cycle is under medical treatment for that condition not letting some scumbag whore them out to the likes of Gaetz.
go to dictionary.com and look up the word prank. this was not a legal indictment, mr technical.
no one is mentioning matt’s cuban boy toy anymore.
Man About Town
I find it quite startling that Gaetz signaled a security guard as quickly as he did; who knew it wouldn’t take him long to realize this guy was anything but a fan?
The real Bruce
I thought there was a law here in California about letting dogs on the beach without a leash!
