Legend Matt Gaetz continues to block the establishment

The House was embroiled in a fight over who would be the new speaker last month, and during the heat of it all — Matt Gaetz did not disappoint.

“I’m against 'Speaker Light.' I’m against Bud Light,” Gaetz told reporters. “I believe it is a constitutional desecration to not elect a speaker of the House. We need to stay here until we elect a speaker, and if someone can’t get the votes, we need to go on to the next person.”

“Twisting and torturing the Constitution to empower a temporary speaker is having a 'speaker light.' That is not constitutionally contemplated,” Gaetz continued, adding, “And I will do everything possible to stop it.”

However, Gaetz was a part of the problem in the first place, as his entire plan was to get rid of Speaker Kevin McCarthy.

“You should have had the ‘Now what?’ already prepared,” Pat Gray critiqued.

After the vote meeting, Gaetz told reporters, “It was a really productive discussion.”

“People got to get their viewpoint out, and what I’m really happy about is that this did not end with a desire to have a 'speaker light,'” he continued. “It’s our obligation to elect a speaker, and I’m glad that we were able to throw cold water on 'speaker light' as a governing concept.”

And they did throw cold water on it. By the end of October, a new speaker had been elected to replace McCarthy.

The speaker is Mike Johnson, a congressman from Louisiana who has been criticized by the left for his support of Donald Trump.

However, Pat Gray wasn’t concerned with the lack of a speaker at the time.

“The longer they can’t legislate, the better it is for us,” he said.
