Gaetz told Fox News Channel’s Hannity, “I had a circumstance just a few weeks ago where someone threw a drink at me leaving a town hall meeting. I am going to press charges.”

He added, “If there are no consequences laid out, then maybe it’s me getting hit with a drink one time, but what if it’s a member of my staff and what if instead of a drink it’s acid or urine? I think it’s really important to send a message that we as conservatives have a right to our views — just like anybody else.”

This incident transpired around the time of the infamous “milkshake” attacks on pro-Brexit candidates, which included Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage.

Gaetz has been one of the fiercest defends of President Trump’s America First agenda.

He has stood up to legacy institutions who want the U.S. involved in reckless nation-building campaigns and has laid out a new foreign policy vision of restraint.

Gaetz has also defended the President from the D.C. establishment’s Russia collusion witch-hunt against him.

For that reason, Gaetz will earn a lot of enemies along his way.

Nevertheless, this shows he’s doing something right.

A liquid chemical was also found inside the building. Humboldt Bay Fire arrived at the scene and discovered that the liquid was flammable, the EPD recollected.
