Poo-Flinging Caucus

No truer words … “The poo-flinging monkeys, who I think are being led by Matt Gaetz, which tells us everything we need to know about them, are not people to be reasoned with. You can’t negotiate with them and right now, Kevin McCarthy is trying to negotiate with terrorists.”

While showing their asses to the media yesterday, they got lost. I’m surprised they didn’t bump into pathological lying freshman Republican George Santos because he got lost too. At least Santos can blame getting lost on it being his first day. What’s Boebert’s and Gaetz’s excuse? Didn’t they map the…
