A Twitter spat between Matt Gaetz and Chris Latvala, two prominent Florida Republicans, turned nasty Monday night. It all started with a tweet about Al Sharpton.
H/T: Tampa Bay Times
In embarrassing, circular firing squad fashion, these two Republicans decide to air it all out for the whole world to see. Talk about doing the Democrats job for them. Florida must be so proud. Seriously, it's okay to log off Twitter once in a while!
What begins as a tweet some might read as overly effusive toward Al Sharpton, quickly devolves into a nasty playground spat between the two.
Sharpton has called— Matt Gaetz (@mattgaetz) January 14, 2020
Greeks “homos” and
Jews “diamond merchants”
So that is pretty disgusting. https://t.co/SODj3YPBke
And you created a game where members of the FL House got "points" for sleeping with aides, interns, lobbyists, and married legislators. Hope DC is treating you well, Comgressman. https://t.co/PGFuQHJbEJ— Chris Latvala (@ChrisLatvala) January 14, 2020
Have you been drinking tonight? I hope you dont get behind the wheel. I know you have had a rough few days up there.— Chris Latvala (@ChrisLatvala) January 14, 2020
Moments like these point out one good thing about Democrats: they generally stay focused on their common foes and leave each other the hell alone.
