#MattGaetzIsaTool: Florida Rep defends white couple who drew guns on BLM protesters, Internet says he's 'crazy'
Earlier during the day, Twitter users slammed Matt Gaetz after he called the Black Lives Matter movement a 'Marxist movement' and he clearly wasn't listening because his next tweet drew more flak
If you thought Trump and Twitter had an unhealthy relationship, you might want to reconsider it. Florida representative Matt Gaetz might usurp Trump's reputation of making some of the most bizarre tweets. On June 29, Gaetz took to his Twitter to tweet a rather ignorant and offensive tweet about the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement. He tweeted, "Black Lives Matter is a Marxist movement."
As soon as Gaetz's tweet went liVe, he started receiving backlash from every quarter. Several Twitter users took it upon themselves to call Gaetz out and got the hashtag MattGetzIsaTool trending. A twitter user tweeted, "Dear Matt Gaetz, Those penis enlargement pills must be working, because you’re 10x the d*ck you were yesterday. P.S. Black Lives Matter isn’t a “Marxist Movement” you dumbf*ck. But the GOP is definitely a fascist movement & you are definitely a racist. Have a nice day." Another Twitter user wrote, "Matt Gaetz is a raging alcoholic bigot who only got elected because of his white privilege & daddy. #MattGaetzIsATool."
Clearly Gaetz hadn't learned his lesson. Later in the evening, he tweeted yet another offensive tweet. This time around, he shared a picture of the wealthy white lawyer couple who stood in their front yard with their guns pointing at the protesters. The inflammatory tweet that accompanied the picture, didn't sit well with any of the Twitter users. Gaetz captioned the picture, "In Joe Biden’s America your job is illegal, you are locked in your home, borders don’t exist, MS-13 lives next door and the police aren’t coming when the mob arrives. This is all of us."
Twitter users began slamming the representative and made it clear that it wasn't Biden's America, but Trump's America and that the picture did not represent all of them. A user shared, "Poor crazy @mattgaetz doesn't know Trump is President right now, causing all this! Oh bless your heart."
"I dare someone to find me a photograph of a black man aiming an AR-15 at innocent, peaceful white people without later being arrested or killed by the police," demanded a user. Another twitter user expressed, "Matt Gaetz IS a tool. The cheapest, dullest, most useless broken tool in Trump's entire tool box. #MoscowMitchMcConnell #MattGaetzIsATool #PutinsGOP SCOTUS."
