The Saturday Night Live Weekend update team obviously had a few things to say about Matt Gaetz’s seemingly impending legal problems. But he is such a hard target to resist that co-host Colin Jost brought the segment back to the Florida congressman after the focus shifted to other issues.
The highlight is when Jost makes the blindly obvious observation that QAnon supporters have been strangely silent about Gaetz’s claims – which include sex trafficking and sex with an underage girl – when his entire movement is based on the idea that many Democrats and others. called “elites” are cannibal worshipers of Satan in charge of a global child sex trafficking network.
I think it’s a problem for Democrats only, not Republicans, when real claims come up that are basically that. (That is, only the last part. At the moment, no one is claiming that Gaetz worships Satan or dines in human flesh.)
