@AdamWeinstein
Gaetz's de facto communications strategy came up on Wednesday evening's @MehdiHasanShow:

The Mehdi Hasan Show
@MehdiHasanShow
As a former federal prosecutor, what does @renato_mariotti think about Rep. Matt Gaetz’s media-blitzing reaction to his investigation for sex trafficking?

“He has the right to remain silent,” Mariotti tells @mehdirhasan, “but apparently not the ability to remain silent.”

6. Luke Ball??? Really?

It sounds like one of the pseudonym authors from one of those sleazy 1960s paperbacks that you bought at the back of the sleazy bookstore.

10. Like Trump Gaetz thinks he's above the law

and can bullshit his way out of any situation. Like the insurrectionist in chief, down he goes.

12. drunk in public

“He has the right to remain silent,” Mariotti tells
@mehdirhasan, “but apparently not the ability to remain silent.”

Which is a great line from Ron White (Blue Collar Comedy Tour and on his own as well).

13. When staff start leaving ... the ship is sinking.

After all, these are people who need the income-- don't necessarily have another job lined up. When they decide that job or not, they can't stay and be tarred with the stain, they know more than we do, and what they know is BAD.
