Why is Matt Gaetz on Velshi and Ruhle?

Why would they invite that traitor into the studio to discuss the Nunes memo?

I really don't get the mainstream media. Their weak attempts at trying to seem unbiased just smack of pathetic ratings grabs. Gaetz offers absolutely nothing to justify interviewing him.

2. Since I've never watched FOX, I can't answer this, but...

...do any Democratic Congresspersons regularly appear on FOX?

Seems that to be fair and balanced, we'd keep the Matt Gaetz's of the world off our television screens.

3. Gaetz is trying to pull a Cruz

He's trying to make a name for himself. He must be from a R-leaning district.

8. He's from the Pensacola area, so pretty much the most conservative part of Florida.

13. Yes, to my everlasting shame,


that little weasel is my representative. I cringe every time I see his face. Back in May. I think there was a gathering with tRump outside (maybe the Rose Garden) and there he was, worming his way closer to tRump. It was clear he wants to speed up the process to “get noticed” and make a name for himself. He is a smarmy, slimy little worm. I hope getting himself mixed up in the Nunes mess bites him on his ass and leaves an indelible mark of Shame on him.

4. Yeah, Ali and Steph are far better at economic/fiscal issues...

I guess the network is trying them out on more diverse topics, and interviewing assholes is part of the OJT, I guess.

5. He offers nothing but you'd only go down the Fox News road if you excluded all you disagreed with.

One interesting bit was when he said that Nunes had taken control of the chairmanship of the House Intel committee....I wonder have they told Conaway, or Adam Schiff for that matter ?

p.s. I hope Gaetz gets his just desserts.

7. Because cable talk shows are all about

maximum controversy/conflict for ratings. As long as people keep watching those shows and making the already rich hosts richer, at the expense of viewers’ mental health, they’ll keep providing hours of sensationalized bullshit.

9. Heard it. The hosts challenged him pretty well. Gaetz is articulate though and if you're

inclined to be a blind Trumpster he gives you something to hang onto.

If you're an uninformed, neutral, moderate who likes facts rather than bluster I imagine Gaetz was hardly convincing.

10. Real news shows have people from both sides....don't want MSNBC to be like Fox.

11. Commentary from both sides is fine. But why a traitor like Gaetz who is trying

 

to end the Russian investigation to protect Trump? You might as well put Kellyanne Conway on.

12. Go ahead and put them all on....they just make fools of themselves.

I can handle hearing the opposition no matter how bad they are.
