Rep Matt Gaetz Announces He’ll Nominate President Trump as Speaker of the House

Rep. Matt Gaetz said that he directly spoke with former President Donald Trump about putting Trump as House Speaker if Republicans reclaim control of the chamber in the November elections. He echoed a notion he floated over the summer but was mostly ridiculed by all but the most extreme-right Republicans.

When questioned if he’d spoken with Trump about the concept during a press conference, a grinning Gaetz—one of the most hard-right members of Congress—replied, “I have,” though he declined to go into further details.

Rep Matt Gaetz’s Full Speech at Save America Rally, Georgia

“Give us the ability to fire Nancy Pelosi, take back the majority, impeach Joe Biden, and I’m going to nominate Donald Trump for Speaker of the United States House of Representatives!” This is what he said at the Save America Rally in Georgia. Apart from this, he also said, “There is no greater president than Donald J. Trump.”

He also elaborated on this by saying, “If you don’t mind me saying so, there is no greater Member of Congress than Marjorie Taylor Greene.”

Twitter users in the comments of the post made by RSBN of this clip, shared interesting thoughts. I’ll let you decide whether or not these views and opinions are respectable or not.

Matthew Luttman simply responded, “Why? I have to respect the complete apathy here, it is comical.”

“THE WHITE WOLF” Said, “Hmm… let’s see…. Maybe because he isn’t going to run for prez and maybe because DeSantis is and his best bet for calling the shots is being speaker. If I were him, I would follow this route too. Complete power. As a speaker, I could control way more than a prez or gov. Justsayn”

Rummaging through the pile of grammatical mistakes this comment has, the opinion here is actually a solid base for a good argument but still pretty childish. Again, I will let you decide.

In support of the clip and Matt, “Whew!! Good to know. Looks like I need to continue helping those on the other side. Thanks to Cruz, Hawley, LG, MTG & their performances last week, I was SHOCKED to see how motivated, mobilized, energized the black/brown vote has become! The Dems haven’t even done that this year!” This was a response by MichelleInd55.

Brandon Sanchez said this in derision of the clip, “What a lunatic. Trump and Taylor are the epitomai of dog whistlers.”

Make of this what you will. However, I do have to say that the claim made by Sanchez is unsubstantiated.

Jeff Crouere’s Opinion on the Nomination of Trump as Speaker of the House

Jeff Crouere’s opinion on this is rather interesting and completely in favour of the decision. He said, “I thought that was great,” “That would be a real revolution.”

Jeff Crouere

“Can you imagine Donald Trump as Speaker of the House, going against Joe Biden on a daily basis?” He said. He goes on to talk about how this decision will “shake things up” in the United States.

Detailed Chain of Events

Rep. Matt Gaetz said that he directly spoke with former President Donald Trump about putting Trump as House Speaker if Republicans reclaim control of the chamber in the November elections. He echoed a notion he floated over the summer but was mostly ridiculed by all but the most extreme-right Republicans.

Gaetz also began a fundraising campaign in the summer after promising to nominate Trump as speaker of the House if the GOP retakes the chamber, despite Trump advisers denying that he was interested at the time.

Reps. Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene, both far-right Republicans, have expressed interest in the notion. She stated that she “wishes” Trump to be Speaker of the House and that House Republicans impeach President Joe Biden.

This is a fact that even Crouere talked about, To retake control of the House in 2022, Republicans just need to gain five seats. Because of favourable redistricting patterns and generic congressional polling, the GOP appears to have a large lead over Democrats, which is virtually unprecedented in the history of generic ballot polling. After taking over as the leading Republican in the chamber following the retirement of former House Speaker Paul Ryan in 2019, Rep. Kevin McCarthy is in a position to become speaker in a GOP-controlled House. During the summer debate over who should be Speaker of the House, Trump stated that he has “a good relationship with Kevin [McCarthy] and hopefully we will do everything traditionally.”

Who is Matt Gaetz?

On May 7, 1982, Matthew Louis Gaetz II was born. He is an American lawyer and politician who has represented Florida’s 1st congressional district in the United States Congress since 2017. He became one of President Donald Trump’s most powerful legislative allies as a Republican.

  • Gaetz’s early life

Gaetz grew up in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, as the son of notable Florida politician Don Gaetz. He temporarily worked in private practice after graduating from William & Mary Law School before running for state representative. From 2010 until 2016, he was a member of the Florida House of Representatives, where he gained national recognition for supporting Florida’s controversial “stand-your-ground law” statute in the aftermath of Trayvon Martin’s shooting in 2012. He was first elected to the United States House of Representatives in 2016, and he was re-elected in 2018 and 2020.

  • Sexual assault allegations on Gaetz

Gaetz disputed charges that he had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl in violation of federal sex trafficking statutes when the Department of Justice started an inquiry in late 2020. The House Ethics Committee announced an investigation in April 2021.

  • Gaetz had typed cards of his speech for his town hall in case protestors disrupted it

Concerned that protestors might disrupt his speech during his town hall in Pace, Florida on February 23, 2017, Gaetz planned a nonverbal town hall, according to his aides. He had a portion of his speech typed out on large boards that he would hold up if he couldn’t talk. Gaetz came 30 minutes late to the meeting, which was held at a bowling alley with at least 500 people.

  • a “proud Trump protégé”

Gaetz was dubbed “one of the most enthusiastic defenders of President Trump on cable news” and a “proud Trump protégé” by Politico in April 2018. He is one of Congress’ “most controversial members” according to Aaron Blake of The Washington Post, who has “unabashedly aligned himself with Trump on basically all things.”

  • Gaetz nominated Trump for Nobel Peace Prize

Gaetz was one of 18 House Republicans who voted in May 2018 to nominate Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize for his assistance in the North Korean peace talks. Gaetz claimed he would support a pardon for Trump associate Roger Stone on The View in February 2020, soon before Stone was convicted.

  • Gaetz proposed a House resolution in November 2017 asking for Robert Mueller to resign as special counsel

Gaetz proposed a House resolution in November 2017 asking for Robert Mueller to resign as special counsel due to alleged conflicts of interest. He also requested a special counsel investigation into the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email scandal, as well as undue interference in the investigation by US Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the Russian state corporation Rosatom’s acquisition of Uranium One during Mueller’s tenure as FBI director. Gaetz said he didn’t trust Mueller to oversee the probe because of Mueller’s suspected role in the Uranium One deal’s approval and his claimed close friendship with former FBI Director James Comey, who is a potential person of interest in a new inquiry.

  • Gaetz organized a “storming” of a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility on Capitol Hill in October 2019

Gaetz organized a “storming” of a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility on Capitol Hill in October 2019, with about two dozen Republican congressmen, including House minority whip Steve Scalise, in an attempt to sit in on and hear the deposition of a Pentagon official during Trump’s impeachment investigation. The congressmen’s mobile phones and other electronic gadgets jeopardize the secure facilities as well as US national security.

“It was the closest thing I’ve seen around here to mass civil unrest as a member of Congress.” one committee member stated. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, wrote to the House sergeant-at-arms, urging that he take action against Gaetz and others for their “unprecedented breach of security” Lindsey Graham, South Carolina’s senior senator, chastised the House members, calling them “nuts” for making a “run on the SCIF.” “The members have had it,” Ohio representative Jim Jordan said, “and they want to be able to see and represent their constituents and find out what’s going on.”

Jordan went on Fox News the next day to defend the intervention, stating of the committee’s chair: “Our members finally said, “Enough.” Adam Schiff is doing this unfair, politicized process in private. We’re quite dissatisfied. When things got to a boiling pitch, these people marched in and demanded to know what was going on.” Schiff and 12 Democratic members of the House Intelligence Committee were selected by Pelosi, who is an ex officio member of the committee. The ranking member, Devin Nunes, and eight other Republicans were named to the committee by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who is also an ex officio member. Each side was given the same amount of time to interrogate witnesses. The incident caused Deputy Assistant Defense Secretary Laura Cooper’s testimony to be postponed for many hours.

  • Gaetz falsely claimed that there was “pretty compelling evidence from a facial recognition company showing that some of the people who breached the Capitol today were not Trump supporters”

After a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol on January 7, 2021, Gaetz falsely claimed that there was “pretty compelling evidence from a facial recognition company showing that some of the people who breached the Capitol today were not Trump supporters” but rather “masquerading as Trump supporters, and in fact, were members of the violent terrorist group Antifa” Gaetz said during his House floor address that he had no idea “if the reports are true.” Gaetz’s claim that “Antifa” was to blame for the Capitol attack is inaccurate and unfounded.

Joel Valdez, a senior communications aide to Gaetz, posted a video on Parler hours before the storming of the Capitol with the caption “From the top of the Capitol office buildings, WE HEAR YOU LOUD AND CLEAR! #StopTheSteal”. Gaetz voted against the second impeachment of Donald Trump.

Gaetz recognized global warming in 2016 but stated that he disagrees with the scientific consensus that human activity is the major driver of climate change. Gaetz was labelled a climate change sceptic by the Center for American Progress and Vice Media in April 2017, based on remarks he made in 2016.

Gaetz sponsored legislation to eliminate the Environmental Protection Agency in January 2017, alleging that the expenses of compliance harm small companies.

Gaetz joined the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus in November 2017. He claimed he supported technological innovation and economic incentives to combat climate change, as well as more government funding for global warming research by NASA, NOAA, and universities, but he opposed further environmental regulation.

Gaetz introduced the bipartisan Super Pollutants Act in 2019, which intended to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, particularly black carbon, hydrofluorocarbons, and methane, in order to prevent climate change. “These short-lived climate pollutants also called super pollutants, are significantly more potent than carbon dioxide.” according to a news release.

Gaetz tweeted on August 26, 2020: “The mob wants to destroy the United States of America. We need patriots to stand up for her “in support of Kyle Rittenhouse, a 17-year-old from Antioch, Illinois, who claimed self-defence after shooting and killing two people and injuring another during riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin (where he had worked and where his father resided) during the Jacob Blake shooting protests. In November 2021, Rittenhouse was arrested and accused with first-degree intentional homicide, but he was acquitted due to self-defence. Gaetz was one of three members of Congress who offered Rittenhouse an internship.
