Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz is the face of the Republican Party’s next generation: young, white, and a gigantic racist lunatic. Naturally, he’s one of Fox News’s darlings, so they let him come on and “co-host” their midday show “Outnumbered.”

“I know the president likes to call her Pocahantas but now that she’s making her way from the Eastern seaboard into the center of the country maybe Sacagawea would be more appropriate.”

Gaetz is the guy who initially spread weird, totally incorrect Soros conspiracy theories about the migrant caravan, and has spent most of his young career as a mouthpiece for the NRA. In other words, he’s perfect for Fox. I think we’re done here.
