As you’ve likely heard by now, immunity for Donald Trump for the alleged crimes he committed as president has been shot down by a federal appeals court. Trump has vowed to appeal this, meaning the case will go to the Supreme Court if he does so. But in the meantime, two fools (three if you count Marjorie Taylor Greene) have rushed in to save their hero.

Yes, indeed folks, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) and Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) have introduced a bill to save Trump’s bacon by declaring he’s not an insurrectionist. The resolution, unveiled Tuesday, claims Trump “did not engage in insurrection or rebellion against the United States. At just one page long, the resolution has more than 60 GOP co-sponsors and it’s an effort to rebuff states that are attempting to kick Trump off the ballot due to his actions during the Capitol attack on January 6, 2021.

Apologies if you’ve lost a few brain cells while reading this but it’s entirely true that Gaetz, Stefanik, and Greene, who loudly claimed that anyone calling Trump an insurrectionist is a liar while the three held a press conference, have lost most of theirs.

As The Hill notes, Gaetz and Stefanik are trying to use the 14th Amendment, which prohibits from office those who have taken part in an insurrection.

Trump has been booted off Colorado’s Republican Party ballot thanks to that state’s Supreme Court, and that decision is scheduled to be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday. Gaetz used that as a talking point during the presser while surrounded by 10 co-sponsors of the measure.

“We are here today to authoritatively express that president trump did not commit an insurrection, and we believe congress has a unique role in making that declaration,” gaetz said. “it’s not the job of the states and especially not the job of some bureaucrats in Colorado to make this assessment and interfere with the righto of voters to cast their vote for the candidate of their choice.”

“as president donald trump continues to dominate in the polls, extreme democrats will stop at nothing in an attempt to prevent president donald trump from returning to the white house,” stefanik said.

Gaetz openly admits he wants Republicans to play the victim here. Perhaps the thinking (or lack thereof) is that Trump has played the victim so many times, that we might as well give it a thought. At any rate, he’s claiming that approving the resolution would be “incredibly helpful legally.”

“If we’re the purported victim, in congress, and we’re saying this was not an insurrection, i think that will hold a great deal of weight,” Gaetz concluded.

How ridiculous. I think we already know that’s going to wind up in the septic tank of Republican buffoonery.

I’ll be gobsmacked if it doesn’t.

And we don’t even know at this point if House Speaker Mike Johnson will introduce the measure to the floor for a vote, even though Gaetz expressed confidence that he will. Plus, Republicans hold a teeny, tiny majority in the House. You can be sure Democrats will put up a fight.

MSNBC’s Katie Phang notes on X that “Matt Gaetz and Elise Stefanik are Exhibit A that House Republicans have nothing better to do & this is their version of helping Americans.

@MsMariaT noted:

“Both have serious legal issues

Matt Gaetz’s are well-known

Elise stefanik’s being caught up in the NYGOP campaign finance scandal with george santos (and his treasurer nancy marks), aren’t.

Stefanik & lee zeldin think they got away with it.”

disabuse them of that notion.”

Other X users had thoughts as well.

Oh, and one more thing…Gaetz added he has spoken with Trump about the effort and he was “thrilled that so many members had signed on.”

Aren’t you “thrilled” to know that?

And for extra fun, I’ve included MTG’s delusional speech from the presser. Really, it’s very sad that this woman is so delusional. She’ll never be cured of it I guess. That’s all I can say. I’m fresh out of words.

  1. Members of the House can propose whatever they want and pass whatever they want (provided they do have a majority of votes to do it) but it has ZERO Constitutional authority. For a bill to have ANY force of law, it has to pass BOTH Houses of Congress.

    Chuck Schumer should go before the cameras and declare the House bill is “dead on arrival in the Senate.”

  2. The House of ‘Representatives’? It’s more the House of Cards! 52 card pickup anyone? I hope they know that in Hell the Devil runs the place, and the Prince of Darkness accepts no resolutions. Besides…being a rapist or whore in Hell gains no distinction. The place is full of evil citizens like the drunk pedophile from Florida and the porn addicted moron from Georgia.
