There are all kinds of issues one might have with the coronavirus emergency relief bill. However, one of those issues is obviously not going to be earmarking money to go to medical facilities that are dealing directly with COVID-19 cases. But that is exactly what Florida Man Matt Gaetz did on Wednesday, when the congressman decided to try and score some racist dogwhistle points with fellow faux-fiscal conservatives.

“Education is important- but a $13 million check to Howard does not belong in COVID-19 relief.” Attacking a prestigious HBCU is the kind of racism that bigots like Gaetz consider a salient point. Unfortunately for Mr. Florida Man, intelligence, facts, and the use of those two things are not a strong suit of Rep. Gaetz.

Steve Hofstetter is a comedian and comedy writer, and his response to Rep. Gaetz took off almost instantly since it was so well-written.

If you cannot read that, here’s the text.

Dear Rep. Matt Gaetz,

Why is Howard University in the relief bill? Great question!

Howard University’s hospital is a COVID-19 treatment facility. It is within walking distance from your office.

Hope this helps, you dumb fuck.

It is sort of the best thing you might ever read in response to anything Rep. Gaetz does. Matt Gaetz has put his foot in his mouth so many times he could probably shine everybody in Congress’ shoes with the polish he’s ingested. After the tweet took off, Hofstetter gave it a nice little follow up.

Even though Steve Hofstetter won Twitter on Wednesday, Rep. Gaetz’s bullshit racism brought out all kinds of great responses.

The simple.

The simple visual.

A U.S. senator even decided to give Matt a math lesson. Liberals and their “elite” educations and all that.

And finally.

Yes, gaetz is a bag full of shit that has no spine to do what is logical and correct. His level of racism only compares with his stupidity. I am surprised that this asshole denounced the actions done by his friend, senator raymond burr

I have a problem with large corporations getting any money. They got more than their share with tax bill. What did they do with it? Did this bill state donnie his family, and folks in congress were exclided from anything. If donnie benefits, congress has failed.
