Matt and Marge Declare Jamie Raskin Unfit For the Job Due to His Son’s Suicide

Congressional goons Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene launched a personal attack on House Select January 6 Committee member Jamie Raskin during an episode of Marge’s podcast “MTG Live” on Wednesday.

Tommy Raskin, died by suicide on New Year’s Eve, 2020, after years of battling mental illness. He was 25 years old at the time of his death. Representative Raskin was present during the storming of the Capitol on January 6, one day after the funeral.

Gaetz and Greene on Wednesday, desperately trying to smear Raskin and his work on the January 6 Committee, went off the rails on the craven train in an unusually cruel way. It seems anything goes in the attempt to counterprogram the upcoming January 6 hearings.

“As human beings, our hearts go out to him. But I think that he takes that trauma and he associates it now with his work in the Congress to such an interwoven way that he’s unable to do the congressional experience outside of just the dungeon of that personal trauma,” Gaetz continued, “and I think it makes him look at everything in these very like, dark and severe ways.”

…I think for Jamie Raskin, it’s really like, his service in the Congress has almost become like inextricably attached to this sad personal trauma he’s had,” Gaetz proclaimed. “And I do think it clouds his judgment and you could see that, that very darkness and that pain manifest on Thursday in a way that’s not particularly relevant to the challenges that we’ve talked about, but it might be deeply relevant to what he’s going through. And the country shouldn’t have to go through all that with him.”

Marge added her unsurprising and stupid assessment that Raskin is a “communist.”

Gaetz also called people on the committee “ugly.”
