It’s unclear if Rep. Matt Gaetz understands how fishing works


The House on Thursday passed a non-binding resolution that declared the final results of Robert Mueller’s investigation should be made public.

Among those abstaining? Conspiracy-touting, Trump-witness-intimidating, wall-building-as-a-way-of-reducing-gun-violence-ing, far-right Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.).

Here’s his statement:

“I’ve said to millions of Americans on television that I support releasing the Mueller report. I didn’t need to embrace Nancy Pelosi’s foreword to it today. I take specific exception to the elements of the resolution noting praise for Mueller, without also noting the criticism of his very biased staffing decisions. It’s like he was fishing for talent in the Hillary Clinton fan club aquarium.”

Yes, that is how normal human person fishes. In aquarium.

Pond, man. Fishing for talent in the Hillary Clinton fan club pond.
