Embattled Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz is denied a meeting with Trump

Source: CNN

(CNN)Rep. Matt Gaetz, who's facing a federal investigation into sex trafficking allegations, was recently denied a meeting with Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago estate as the ex-President and his allies continue to distance themselves from the Florida congressman.

Two people familiar with the matter said Gaetz tried to schedule a visit with Trump after it was first revealed that he was being investigated, but the request was rejected by aides close to the former President, who have urged Trump not to stick his neck out to defend Gaetz. A spokesperson for Trump did not respond to a request for comment. Gaetz spokesman Harlan Hill said the congressman did not request a meeting with Trump this week.

"Rep. Gaetz was welcomed to Trump Doral this week and has not sought to meet with President Trump himself," Hill said in a statement to CNN, claiming that Gaetz has "been mostly relaxing with his fiancée this week during recess."

The interference by Trump's aides signals that Gaetz finds himself increasingly isolated as he weathers a potentially career-ending scandal just months after he offered to leave his plum job in Congress to join the 45th President's impeachment defense team. Trump has issued only one statement about Gaetz since the public first learned of the congressman's role in a sex trafficking inquiry at the beginning of April. In it, Trump denied ever receiving a blanket pardon request from the 38-year-old congressman and noted Gaetz's denial of the allegations against him.

2. Geez, what bad liars he's got. When did you ever hear someone, especially an elected R-Scum, not....

..wanting to have a meeting with Trump even while he was at Trump's golf outing?

A smart R would have said nothing about a meeting refusal but oh no, not Gaetz's guy. Dumbshits indeed!

3. How pathetic.

Begging to kiss the tarnished ring of his feeble master for one last favor that shall never be given.

Poor, poor Matt is about to fall hard. He seems the type that may be willing to spill whatever beans he has left to try and save his worthless, corrupt ass. My advice to him is to quickly grow eyes in the back of his head and watch out for polonium filled umbrellas, steer clear of open windows more than 4 stories high and try not to get suicided by 2 shots to the back of the head.

7. Trump's probably just bitter that he was never invited...

... to participate in Gaetz's sex competitions involving young girls.

to defend Trump in the Impeachment proceedings.

10. So how long will it be before his fiance gives him the heave-ho?


I'd love to see her wearing a gas mask around him like he wore in the House chambers.

13. Maybe he wanted to show Trump the photos on his cell phone

They seem to share a common sexual appetite.

15. If EVER there was a BWAHAHAAAAA moment, I can't think of anything better

It perfectly shows ONCE AGAIN how disloyal the former President really is; Gaetz was a ride-or-die soldier for the man (oh don't get me wrong, this is no plea for empathy, SCREW HIM!) and, when he gets in a fix, The Donald Special: "New phone, who dis?"

They all deserve each other.

And he won't be anywhere around.
