House Goober Gang, including Greene and Gaetz, run off by protesters during cynical publicity stunt

The Hill:

The Republican lawmakers had gathered Tuesday to press the Department of Justice (DOJ) for a status report on individuals arrested following the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, who they referred to as “political prisoners.”

But they were repeatedly interrupted and eventually ended the event after counterprotesters got too close to the speakers.

One protester repeatedly blew a whistle during the event, and other demonstrators were holding signs that read “Jan 6th was an inside job, vets for democrats” and “Traitors + Rapists: Sit Down,” the latter likely referring to Gaetz, who is under investigation for an alleged sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl.

Oh, and here are some clips, in case you prefer a visual:

Note that Greene backed down and stopped asking questions exactly 30 seconds after declaring, “We will not back down, we will not stop asking questions.” What a warrior.

Ah, but the MTG bum’s rush was just an aperitif. Tuck into this tasty morsel, folks:

So the only person at the press conference who actually refused to stop asking questions was this reporter, who wouldn’t relent in inquiring about Gaetz’s (alleged) serial abuses. 

To be fair, we should be concerned about the rights of any person—citizen or not—who’s in jail or prison awaiting trial. But somehow I doubt the Goofus Brigade cares about the hundreds of thousands of nontraitors who are detained and awaiting trial in the U.S. If there really is a legitimate concern about the rights of the Jan. 6 rioters who are currently incarcerated, I’d rather hear it from Amnesty International than Assholes Incorporated.

Considering that Greene and Gaetz can’t find a venue in which to disseminate their mind poisons and that their vaunted freedom tour is sucking up resources faster than Donald Trump Jr.’s sinuses, they might think about taking a break from their performative bullshit.

Then again, what the hell else are they going to do? Legislate? Yeah, that’s a good one. 

It made comedian Sarah Silverman say “THIS IS FUCKING BRILLIANT” and prompted author Stephen King to shout “Pulitzer Prize!!!” (on Twitter, that is). What is it? The viral letter that launched four hilarious Trump-trolling books. Get them all, including the finale, Goodbye, Asshat: 101 Farewell Letters to Donald Trump, at this link.
