Gaetz says he would resign from Congress to represent Trump in impeachment trial

Source: WEAR-TV Channel 3 ABC Affiliate

Rep. Matt Gaetz said during an appearance on Steve Bannon's podcast Wednesday that, if asked, he would step down from Congress to defend former President Donald Trump in his upcoming impeachment trial.

Appearing on "War Room: Pandemic," the Northwest Florida congressman said, "If the [former] president called me and wanted me to go defend him on the floor of the Senate, that would be the top priority in my life."

All Gaetz does is wave his hands and arms around, stiffly, and lean forward like an early hunchback. And his humor is poor. I mean he'd be run off stage at comedy club.

he has a cush job being the loud mouth halfwit he's always has been. he gets paid for it and free health care.

he's a self promoting opportunist.

he's blowing smoke to look as if he stands for it.

but if push came to shove, he would be the first to back off and claim some bullshit reason not to.

whatever, matty.

34. Reminds me of the Roman senator who offered to trade his life for Caligula's, when Caligula was ill

Once Caligula recovered, he summoned the senator to ask him why he was still breathing, and then helped him keep his promise.

So yes, Matt, by all means resign.
