Watch: Matt Gaetz Plays Audio Clip Of Dem Laughing About Border Crisis, Triggers Everyone!
Florida’s GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz sent Democrats into a full-on trigger-fest when he played an audio clip of their own leadership laughing about the border crisis in denial.
The clip was of Democratic whip, Jim Clyburn who was asked if he thought there was a humanitarian crisis at the border. Clayburn responded with a laugh and an ‘absolutely not’.
“The gentlelady from Texas in her prior claim of time said it was ‘offensive’ to assert that Democrats were in denial about the crisis on the border,” Gaetz began.
“I would invite my Democratic colleagues to go to my official Twitter account where I have posted an interview from January 9, 2019, it was on CNN, not exactly a hostile network for you folks, and it’s, well, let me just play what the question was and it’s Jim Clyburn, the Democratic whip, answering the question,” the Florida Republican continued.
Gaetz allowed the recording to play in a continuous loop to prove his point. When the Trump administration tried to raise awareness of the conditions at the border, left behind from the Obama administration, Dems thought it was a joke.
“Is it appropriate for a Member to just put on a loop, a teeny soundbite out of context? Is that allowed?” Dean snarked.
After the chairman of the committee gave Gaetz back his time, the Florida lawmaker explained the significance of Clyburn’s answer.
“I just think that’s quite something, that when you’re fed back your own words from your own leadership from earlier this year, you think that’s out of context and inappropriate and not allowed. Again, we didn’t raise the issue. It was the gentlelady from Texas that said ‘these allegations from Republicans that we were in denial — they’re offensive. We’ve always known of the crisis.’ And the Democratic Whip laughed! ‘Absolutely not.’ Laughed. Thought it was laughable,” Gaetz said.
“One of the reasons why so many young people, so many vulnerable people are in tragic conditions is because we didn’t act when the administration wanted us to provide funding that was absolutely necessary to care for people.” Gaetz added.
“And so it is appropriate to question why we are in these conditions. But it wasn’t the Republicans that were in denial. It was all of you, and it was in your own words from your own leadership,” he continued. “Be offended with the Democratic Whip, not House Republicans.”
