Matt Gaetz is 41, Hutchinson is 27. Fourteen years is not an illegal age discrepancy, but it's reminiscent of his alleged sex trafficking a 17-year-old girl in 2017. Btw, read the last paragraph for Gaetz's corny pick-up line.
Incidentally, besides burning Matt Gaetz she painted an unflattering portrait of a groping Rudy Giuliani and other men. The aggrieved men she depicted in her book have called her credibility into question. She suggested that if they want to dispute her, that they do what she did: testify under oath.
(The Hill)Former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson said Monday that she has “higher standards” than to date Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), adding that he is a “very unserious” lawmaker.”
MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow asked Hutchinson on Monday to respond to comments made by Gaetz saying that he dated Hutchinson “for a few weeks when we were both single years ago.”
The former White House staffer refuted those claims and blasted him as someone she does “not hold in high regard in terms of trust.”
“And I do not think that Matt Gaetz has the best track record for relationships” Hutchinson told Maddow, adding, “I will say, on behalf of myself, I never dated Matt Gaetz. I have much higher standards in men.”
“Matt, frankly, is a very unserious politician,” she continued. “We see that today with the ruckus that he is causing on Capitol Hill with the spending negotiations.”
Maddow had mentioned an excerpt in Hutchinson’s new book, “Enough,” where she described numerous instances with the Florida Republican, including one where he told the former White House aide: “Has anyone told you — ever told you you’re a national treasure?”
