GOP Representative Mocked for Submitting Special Request to House Judiciary Committee

(AbsoluteNews.com) – President Joe Biden spoke about unity in his inaugural address, but we’ve yet to see Democrats show any of that bipartisan cooperation. In fact, it seems quite the opposite is true on Capitol Hill.

On February 4, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) submitted a request to the Judiciary Committee that asked lawmakers to start every meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance. Democrats in the House shot down the request and were caught on a hot mic mocking the conservative lawmaker.

The day after leftist lawmakers denied his request, Gaetz spoke out on Fox News and defended himself. The Florida lawmaker said he was just trying to “celebrate patriotism” and “unify the country.”

During the committee meeting, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said the House already says the Pledge at the start of every day, so he thought it was “unnecessary” to say it twice. Rep. Gaetz disagreed and he wasn’t alone. Freshman Rep. Burgess Owens (R-UT) slammed his Liberal colleagues, saying it’s “pathetic” that none of them could “be bothered to show 15 seconds of unity and patriotism.”

It seems for all of their talk of unity, the Democratic Party is still refusing to walk the walk.

You Deserve the Absolute Truth!
