WATCH LIVE: TRUMP IMPEACHMENT TRIAL DAY 6

Buckle Up MAGA-Nerds, Alex Jones and Matt Gaetz Are Beefing: ‘You Look Like a Possum Ate a Pile of Crap!’

Folks. It is with a heavy heart that I report there’s trouble in MAGA-land: Rep. Matt Gaetz, the well-spray-tanned congressman from Florida, recently disowned conspiracist Alex Jones, and Alex Jones responded by declaring the lawmaker looks “like a possum ate a pile of crap.”

Gaetz, who’s close with InfoWars host Roger Stone, was asked recently in an interview whether he regretted appearing on InfoWars, a website perhaps best known for claiming the Sandy Hook massacre of children was a hoax.

“I would not go back on Alex Jones’s show,” Gaetz said. “Upon further reflection, I think the things that Alex Jones has said and done are so hurtful to so many people that a member of Congress should not grace that platform and legitimize it.”

Jones responded to the betrayal on InfoWars Monday. “He threw me under the bus mega-massively,” he said.

Getting enraged by his own words, Jones eventually blurted at Gaetz: “You look like a possum ate a pile of crap!”

At one point he said having Gaetz on his show doesn’t do anything for ratings because viewers “want to hear real people like Mike Cernovich and myself.”

Watch above.
