FAfter a cold opening that saw Pete Davidson debut his creepy Quagmire-style Matt Gaetz, Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update” continued the attack.
“Rep. Matt Gaetz, who looks like a cartoonist of me, is being investigated for an alleged sexual relationship with an underage girl, because Gaetz believes that only voters should have to show identification,” Colin Jost joked. “It is also reported that Gaetz may have paid to have sex with women he met online. Since then, that story has been borne out by all his vibe. “
Yes, Gaetz is currently under investigation for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl and for possibly violating sex trafficking laws by paying her to travel across state lines. In addition, as reported by CNN, Gaetz is also accused of showing photos of naked women with whom he had allegedly slept with other congressmen on the House floor and of having sex with ecstasy-fueled prostitutes.
Jost then addressed Gaetz’s incredibly bizarre (and unconvincing) statement about the allegations, delivered in the third person: “Matt Gaetz has never paid for sex … Matt Gaetz has never been to any of those websites at all … Matt Gaetz appreciates the relationships in his past and hopes to marry the love of his life. ”
To that, Jost released his own statement in response: “Colin Jost doesn’t believe you … Colin Jost thinks you’ve been to all the websites … Colin Jost thinks you should postpone sending those wedding invitations.”
Of course, the crowd of Trump-loving QAnon – conspiracy theorists who believe that Trump, a good friend of Jeffrey Epstein, was somehow waging an undercover battle against an army of pedophile sex traffickers and Hollywood Democrats – has saved a remarkable silence on Gaetz’s revelations.
“Here’s the craziest part of this story for me: A sitting congressman is being charged with child trafficking and the people of QAnon are suddenly saying, ‘No, I need more evidence,’” Jost snapped. “That was all for you! Well then! Matt Gaetz’s girlfriend, supposedly 17, 17th The letter of the alphabet is Q, it all adds up! What are you waiting for? The storm is finally here, and QAnon says, ‘You can’t believe everything you read on the internet.’
If that wasn’t enough, Gaetz was the one only representative in Congress to vote against a 2017 human trafficking bill.
