GOP Rep Matt Gaetz Gets Brutally Mocked for Suggesting Soros is Paying Honduran Kids to Storm U.S. Border


On Wednesday, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) posted a video to Twitter.

“BREAKING,” Gaetz wrote. “Footage in Honduras giving cash 2 women & children 2 join the caravan & storm the US border @ election time.”

Then, the congressman floated a theory as to who might be funding these efforts.

“Soros?” Gaetz wrote. “US-backed NGOs? Time to investigate the source!”

Yes, Gaetz is floating the idea that Democratic mega-donor George Soros is secretly paying Honduran women and children to “storm” the U.S. border in an effort to sway the midterm election.

The congressman’s suggestion drew brutal mockery on Twitter:
