Pro-Trump GOP Rep Considering Retirement to Join Newsmax

[Public Domain]

Pro-Trump Congressman Matt Gaetz is reportedly eyeing early retirement from Congress in favor of a new job at Fox News competitor, Newsmax. Numerous close sources to Rep. Gaetz revealed to Axios that the Congressman is strongly considering not seeking re-election, especially after Newsmax saw spikes in viewership during the 2020 election.

Axios reports:

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) has privately told confidants he’s seriously considering not seeking re-election and possibly leaving Congress early for a job at Newsmax, three sources with direct knowledge of the talks tell Axios.

Gaetz has told some of his allies he’s interested in becoming a media personality, and floated taking a role at Newsmax.

One of the sources said Gaetz has had early conversations with the network about what a position could look like.

While the party out of power tends to gain seats in midterm elections — creating the possibility of Republicans’ taking control of the House in 2022 — a prominent spot in the media could give Gaetz a platform for a future national political role.

President Trump repeatedly blasted Fox News coverage of the election and encouraged viewers to turn to alternative right-wing media networks like Newsmax and One American Action News.

There we go, instead of staying where he might be needed the most, no we gonna join another “talk show” – sort of speak, there goes the GOP – everybody for themselves – the SILENT majority is on it’s own, like thrown to the wolves….anyway, this is exactly what the dims want = get rid of Republicans, so that they will have their ONE-party system….

Hmmmmm – – – I had not considered that BUT it makes perfect sense for dimmies. Get rid of a dependable Constitutionalist by having him/her hired as newsperson and send in a libturd or RINO replacement.

That’s a shame. Gaetz is one of our strongest conservative warriors in congress. He needs to stay there and continue to fight the good fight.

Most of these retiring Republicans voted to impeach Trump. Plenty of young new Republicans are up for the vote and they are not happy with Biden’s administration.

I think Matt Gaetz does a great job but I do hope he takes the position at Newsmax. I hate “CAREER POLITICIANS” and I would like to see “TERM LIMITS” for politicians. Since 90% of them are dishonest hacks this would be a blessing.

Then people like Biden (47 years in office) and Pelosi (33 years in office), Chuck Schumer (21 years in office), Maxine Waters (30 years in office) would have to go out and get A REAL JOB.

Career politicians are one of the most disgusting things on earth.

And yet Donald Trump did more for America in four years than all of the above did in a total of 131 years.

Big loss for the voters. Guess it only hurts the regular guys so who cares. Beginning to wonder if Newsmax and other conservative media might be negatives when it comes to getting the help we need to get the U.S. back on a conservative path. Politicians all want to be stars. Sucks for us.

Matt is a good man, but he’s shoveling you know what against the tide and he knows it. That’s sad. Good Americans are getting screwed over by the day with no help or recourse. I certainly wish him well.

Axios reports, Axios also broke the 1st story about Trump in Russia with hookers who peed on him. So, I don’t even bother taking their stories are truth but a fake news as they come.

betray me once – shame on you. betray me twice – shame on me. That is exactly how I feel about FOX. FOX is hiring everyone they can that we trusted as Trump supporters. WHY????? Nothing less than attempting to again convince US that FOX is a trustworthy conservative entity.

At the same time , FOX is providing a bully pulpit for far-left libturds like Juan Williams.

Which FOX do YOU trust?

AND! Where will he do the most good for Americans, as well as himself? This has to be answered by Gaetz. But. He should pull out all the stops to get someone elected to his old position in 2022. The state governor will appoint a pro Trump replacement.

I think the left wants to grab House seats by slander against House republican members, and by stealing elections that were recounted and certified, especially by Kim Reynolds in Iowa for the Miler-Meeks House seat.
