John Boehner, Matt Gaetz, and the GOP entertainment industry

“The widening Matt Gaetz scandal is proving John Boehner right,” Brian Stelter says, quoting from the former House speaker’s new book.

Boehner “saw the danger in lifting up right-wing MAGA media stars as the faces and the futures of the party.” Stelter also notes that Fox News had propped up Gaetz but has barely covered the recent allegations.
