Matt Gaetz Wore Gas Mask To Mock Coronavirus Worries. One Of His Constituents Just Died From It
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) mocked coronavirus concerns by wearing a gas mask on the House floor just days before an infected man from his district died.
“Reviewing the coronavirus supplemental appropriation and preparing to go vote,” he said in a tweet Wednesday before the Senate approved an $8.3 billion emergency funding bill to combat the virus.
In the tweet, Gaetz is seen wearing a gas mask.
Just two days later, Gaetz released a statement saying a death from COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, had occurred in his district.
