Here is a big moment from yesterday’s hearings when @RepHankJohnson called out @mattgaetz for bringing up Hunter Biden’s addiction issues after Gaetz’s 2008 arrest for DUI: “The pot calling the kettle black is not something that we should do.” pic.twitter.com/tBkTgK045M

For nearly five minutes, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) described Hunter Biden’s alleged improprieties on live television Thursday from a hearing room on Capitol Hill.
The former vice president’s son is “dirty,” Gaetz said. He asserted that Hunter Biden was unqualified for his job on the board of Burisma Holdings, Ukraine’s largest private gas company, and cited findings of a New Yorker report as evidence: A glass pipe containing cocaine residue, along with a “white powdery substance” in a plastic baggie, was found in a car Hunter Biden had rented, according to the magazine.
“I don’t want to make light of anybody’s substance abuse issues,” Gaetz said during the Judiciary Committee’s markup of articles of impeachment. “But it’s a little hard to believe that Burisma hired Hunter Biden to resolve their international disputes when he could not resolve his own dispute with Hertz rental car leaving cocaine and a crack pipe in the car.”
I watched this live yesterday and was stunned at what a petty little POS Matt Gaetz can be.
The Judiciary committee is trying to determine if they should send articles of impeachment to the Senate, and he decides to try and smear Hunter Biden on national television?
This has nothing to do with Hunter Biden’s substance abuse issues.
Unfortunately for Matt Gaetz, he seemed to forget that his house is made of glass:
“I would say that the pot calling the kettle black is not something that we should do,” said Rep. Hank Johnson (Ga.) in a not-so-subtle jab at Gaetz, who was arrested in 2008 for driving under the influence.
“I don’t know what members, if any, have had problems with substance abuse, been busted in a DUI,” said Johnson, glancing to his left, toward Gaetz. “I don’t know, but if I did, I wouldn’t raise it against anyone on this committee. I don’t think it’s proper.”
Gaetz didn’t respond, and other lawmakers in the room — rarely at a loss for words — were quiet for 15 awkward seconds.
That of course was referring to a DUI arrest that Matt Gaetz experienced 11 years ago while driving home from a nightclub called “The Swamp.” (You can’t make this stuff up folks.)
At the time there was talk that he got a preferential treatment because his daddy was a state senator.
And clearly he still acts like an entitled little scumbag attacking people from the safety of his cushy seat in Congress that I am sure his daddy helped him to win.
