Rep. Matt Gaetz ripped into his fellow lawmakers tonight for their hypocrisy, after listening to them for hours trying to blame President Trump for the angry protesters who stormed the Capitol building this afternoon.
Gaetz reminded them that President Trump explicitly called for peaceful protests today and that he was, in fact,” far more explicit about his calls for peace than some of the BLM and left-wing rioters were this summer when we saw violence sweep across the nation.
