1. Is this a joke?

Doesn’t he have a home?

2. He said he did not want to go to a hotel and risk infecting people

In case he turns out positive to Covid-19.

6. I still thought it was satire, you would think some kind of arrangement

could be made for a sitting Congressman, yesterday he went from flying on Air Force 1, schmoozing with the POTUS to sleeping in a parking lot within a few hours.

Self isolate?

Strange, but he’s a complete moron, so who knows.

26. He was driving from near Washington, DC, to Pensacola, Florida

That's more than a fifteen hour drive, with no stops.

The article in the Pensacola News Journal said he was coming from National Harbor, Fort Washington, MD and said “I slept in a Walmart parking lot somewhere off (Interstate) 85.”

No indication as to what WalMart or what state or town. For his route I-85 leaves I-95 at Petersburgh, VA, goes around (or through) Atlanta and joins I-65 at Montgomery, AL.

Then, as he was nearing home, “I couldn’t stay in a hotel,” he said from the car as he arrived in Okaloosa County at mid-morning Tuesday, where he plans to spend the remainder of his self-imposed quarantine. (Pensacola News Journal)

How did the News Journal know where to intercept him for the interview? They don't say. https://www.pnj.com/story/news/2020/03/10/coronavirus-matt-gaetz-florida-congressman-slept-in-parking-lot-to-avoid-infecting-others/5012695002/

22. Because he is such a caring, unselfish person.

Bullshit! He was bombed out of his mind and passed out. He didn't want anyone to see him in the condition he was in. What a joke!

9. Lol, no doubt that's true!

I’m sure his daddy would take him in though. And couldn’t his daddy, tangeranus, give him a room?

If this is true, he’s trying to stay in the news.

19. He said he was driving from DC back to Floriduh...

and couldn't risk staying at a hotel, so he slept in his car in a Walmart parking lot along 85 (?). That story makes sense, although drunk and passed out sounds *totally* Gaetz.

Why wouldn't he just be in his house, again?

Did he just totally lose his shit when he realized what a fool he'd made himself?

Look for a “more time with his family” before long.

24. Serious comment here: He may have some mental illness

That is not the way for a US Congressman to behave. There has to be more to this story.

28. So... what? We're supposed to feel sorry for him?

Where does he sleep when he's in DC any other time? Under -45's bed?

Is he driving home to Florida?

Idiot.

29. No need for open containers. If you're drunk and asleep behind the wheel,

if your key's in the ignition, you can get a DUI.
