Matt Gaetz Roasts Unemployed Bill Kristol in Hilarious Tweet

Published

on

It just keeps getting worse for Bill Kristol.

The former editor of now-defunct Weekly Standard, which #NeverTumped itself to death, was the subject of a Twitter smackdown from a Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) early Tuesday morning.

Gaetz dug up Kristol’s August endorsement of Chris Dosev, who challenged Gaetz in a 2018 midterm primary and was summarily destroyed. In the endorsement, Kristol said Dosev was “impressive” and called Gaetz “one of the worst GOP members.”

Gaetz has been a strong supporter of President Donald J. Trump and the America First agenda, naturally pitting him against curmudgeon Kristol, the out-of-touch dinosaur.

“An unimpressive endorsement from one of the worst former publishers,” Gaetz shot back at Kristol.

This Tweet exchange is a perfect metaphor for the relationship between the old guard Republican establishment and the new, America First GOP. Kristol, who has not been relevant since America’s populist revolution, endorsed a loser and then watched haplessly as his formerly-impenetrable publication sank like the Titanic. Meanwhile, Gaetz won his election and bested Kristol.

It is no mystery why this trend continues. Americans want elected officials and public figures to fight for their interests. Americans do not want smug elitists who only pretend to care about them until cocktail hour, when they meet up with their black-tie D.C. friends to bash the peasant class.

Weekly Standard shuttered last week, finally succumbing to a market that no longer cares for anti-Trump conspiracy theory and snobby commentary.

Big League Politics reported:

A formerly-relevant conservative magazine has shut down after two years of #NeverTrump commentary finally drove the majority of its readership away.

“All good things come to an end. And so, after 23 years, does The Weekly Standard. I want to express my gratitude to our readers and my admiration for my colleagues. We worked hard to put out a quality magazine, and we had a good time doing so. And we have much more to do. Onward!” said Bill Kristol, formerly Weekly Standard’s editor-at-large and the publication’s most prominent personality.

Kristol is known for ditching the GOP over the nomination of President Donald J. Trump in favor of the globalist establishment. Weekly Standard’s former readers left for more in-touch media sources and never forgave him. After 23 years in business, the publication became obsolete in just two years.

BREAKING: Mitch McConnell Pledges to Bring Up Confirmation of New SCOTUS Justice for a Senate Vote

Published

on

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging to bring up a tentative Supreme Court nominee for confirmation before the November election.

President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.

McConnell dispelled notions that the situation was similar to the 2016 blocked nomination of Merrick Garland, citing the Republican Majority in the Senate at the time. The President’s party controls the Senate this time around, and it increased its electoral majority in the 2018 election.

Liberally-inclined Republican Senators such as Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski, and Susan Collins could prove integral to confirming a SCOTUS nominee. The latter two have already stated that they wouldn’t vote to confirm a new justice during a presidential election season, even if the President’s party controlled the Senate.

Chuck Schumer is already pledging to block a new SCOTUS confirmation “until we have a new President,” suggesting he’s seeking to block Trump from even making a new SCOTUS appointment during his potential second term.

This Supreme Court battle could be one for the ages.
