'I know hes watching television because hes calling me five minutes after'

'I know hes watching television because hes calling me five minutes after': Republicans go on TV then they get a call from Trump
Business Insider

After one of freshman Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz's first appearances on cable news, he got a call from someone offering some advice.
"Don't let people talk over you," President Donald Trump told Gaetz, the congressman recalled in a recent interview.
From one of his biggest fans, Gaetz has received compliments on a new haircut, backup on an argument, or pointers on his presence.

"He did make mention of the fact that he thought I had found a calling in television, which is high praise from someone who found a calling in television," Gaetz told Business Insider.

Gaetz was one of four Republican members of Congress who told Business Insider that Trump often likes to give them a call moments after they appear on cable news.

It is no secret that the president is a frequent consumer of the medium. A quick peek at his Twitter feed on any given day shows him often reacting to a segment on the "Fox & Friends" morning show, promoting a Fox News host's program or upcoming interview on the network, or slamming coverage from competing outlets like CNN.

The New York Times reported in December that Trump spends between four and eight hours a day watching television, though he has insisted that he does "not watch much television."

3. ...high praise from someone who found a calling in television

not high praise from a business mogul, a billionaire, the President (not that Trump is any of these), but Gaetz is truly a dumbass

8. Kelly Conway slipped up and said this a year ago.

 

She was right. She did what she had to do given the idiots habits/addictions.
She was blasted by him and laughed at, but she was right. Hateful and conniving, but dead on accurate in terms of trying to talk to him.
How bizarre. Not only that, but his vehament denial. He is busted all the time, but its FAKE NEWS.

If there's one sure way to piss me off, its to insult my intelligence with a blatant provable lie.

6. When tr-dump jets down to Mar a Lago on weekends...

..... Gaetz tags along to accompany him. They exchange political back rubs and kiss each other's ass during the entire flight down bragging and boasting about how politically astute each of them are.

They are both putrid slime-balls from the same pea pod.
