AOC calls Matt Gaetz a ‘bad haircut, cheap suit’

AOC calls Matt Gaetz a ‘bad haircut, cheap suit’ and a ‘performance of mediocrity’ after saying Democratic Representative Jamie Raskin is ‘unable’ to do his job due to his son’s suicide

  • “He’s incapable of doing the kind of congressional experience outside the dungeon of that personal trauma,” Gaetz said on Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene
  • Raskin’s son Tommy Raskin died by suicide at age 25 on New Year’s Eve 2021 after a bout with depression
  • †[Raskin] is a greater statesman, congressman, human than most of us. History will remember him,” said AOC
  • “Gaetz is a bad haircut in a cheap suit, a feat of mediocrity considering he’s here on daddy’s money,” she added.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called Rep. Matt Gaetz a “bad haircut in a cheap suit” after the Florida Republican suggested that Rep. Jamie Raskin’s suicide death embittered Congressman and made him unfit to serve.

“What worries me for Congress and for Jamie Raskin—nobody would ever want to lose a child—especially to suicide. As a human being, our hearts go out to him, but I think he’s taking on that trauma and now associating it with his work in Congress,” Gaetz said on Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene’s podcast, MTG Live.

Gaetz said of Raskin, a Maryland Democrat and a member of the House Jan. 6 committee, “He’s incapable of doing the kind of congressional experience outside the dungeon of that personal trauma.”

Raskin’s son Tommy Raskin died by suicide at the age of 25 on New Year’s Eve 2021 after a bout of depression.

†[Raskin] is a greater statesman, congressman, human than most of us. History will remember him. Tommy was a remarkable person and a testament to his parents’ love. Gaetz is a bad haircut in a cheap suit, a feat of mediocrity considering he’s here on daddy’s money. Bye,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter.

After Tommy’s death, Ocasio-Cortez, DN.Y., announced she would become a vegetarian on loan in honor of the outspoken vegan and animal rights activist.

“I think that’s what makes him look at everything and he’s very dark in a serious way,” Gaetz said away.

Gaetz said he and Greene came to Congress to be “uplifting,” while Raskin was there out of a sense of “grievance or hatred.”

“We come to work and we are here to lift people up. We love this country, we are not here out of a sense of resentment or hatred. We love America.’

“It’s really like his service at Congress is almost inseparable from this sad personal trauma he’s had and I think it’s clouding his judgment and we could see that,” Gaetz continued.

“The country shouldn’t be going through all that with him,” Gaetz concluded.

Greene refrained from going after Raskin for his son’s death. “It’s terrible what he’s been through, but it doesn’t change his political beliefs and I believe he’s a communist,” she said.

Raskin is a Democratic member of the Jan. 6 committee, which will hold its first public hearing at 8 p.m. Thursday evening. Republicans have labeled the committee’s work a political “sham.”

Gaetz himself is currently under investigation for obstruction of justice in connection with a sex trafficking investigation against him.

Gaetz’s former boyfriend, Joel Greenberg, a Florida tax commissioner, pleaded guilty to sex trafficking charges and was allegedly cooperating with the Justice Department’s investigation into Gaetz.

Greenberg has told the DOJ about encounters he and Gaetz had with women who were given money or gifts in exchange for sex, according to CNN.

An ex-girlfriend of Gaetz testified before the grand jury earlier this year.
