This 16 September 2018 video from the USA says about itself:

Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz Keeps Hanging Out With Holocaust Denier

Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz from Florida really seems to enjoy hanging out with really bad people, especially Chuck Johnson, an Alt Right Holocaust denier. In January, Gaetz invited Johnson to the State of the Union address as his personal guest, and now reports have surfaced saying that the two were awfully chummy while on a yacht in California this summer. This is no longer an accident for Gaetz – it is who he is, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.

REPUBLICANS COZY UP TO HOLOCAUST DENIER Two Republican congressmen met with noted Holocaust denier and white nationalist Chuck Johnson to discuss “DNA sequencing,” less than a day after the House voted to disavow the white supremacy of Steve King (R-Iowa). [HuffPost]

FLORIDA REPUBLICAN LASHES OUT AT PARENT OF PARKLAND VICTIM Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) lashed out at the father of a student killed in last year’s mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, in an attempt to eject him from the U.S. House chamber for speaking out of turn. Gaetz drew complaints from the audience as he tried to argue that violence caused by undocumented immigrants is worse than the toll of homegrown gun violence. [HuffPost]

GOP LAWMAKER THREATENS COHEN Hours before Cohen’s scheduled testimony, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) issued a mob-style threat on Twitter: “Hey [Michael Cohen] – Do your wife & father-in-law know about your girlfriends? Maybe tonight would be a good time for that chat. I wonder if she’ll remain faithful when you’re in prison. She’s about to learn a lot.” [HuffPost]

GAETZ SHOULD BE CHARGED WITH WITNESS TAMPERING Former White House ethics lawyer Richard Painter called for Gaetz’s immediate arrest, accusing him of witness tampering. [HuffPost]

FLORIDA BAR PROBES GAETZ After widespread outrage, the Florida Bar confirmed it’s investigating Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) over the threatening tweet he directed at Cohen. [HuffPost]

PENCE: CALLING OUT DISCRIMINATION AN ATTACK ON CHRISTIANITY Vice President Mike Pence defended second lady Karen Pence’s decision to take a teaching job at a school that discriminates against LGBTQ individuals and families, suggesting that the uproar is an attack on Christianity. [HuffPost]

Karen Pence’s anti-LGBTQ school will receive 100 copies of A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo, a children’s book about a boy bunny who falls in love with another boy bunny.

STEVE KING STILL PUSHING BIGOTED SITE Weeks after claiming to denounce racism and bigotry, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) is still using his official government website to direct constituents to a white nationalist blog that regularly publishes the work of vile racists, anti-Semites, and Nazi sympathizers. [HuffPost]

STEVE KING BACKS ANOTHER WHITE NATIONALIST For the third time in less than a year, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) has promoted an open white nationalist on Twitter. [HuffPost]
