Matt Gaetz Is Not A ‘Firebrand’ – He’s Just A Degenerate

Despite the sudden discovery of the word ‘firebrand’ to describe politically goofy swine like Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert, Lin Wood and Matt Gaetz, that appellation does no justice to their actual practice of lunacy.

The word – defined as one who is “a person who is passionate about a particular cause, typically inciting change and taking radical action” – is far too soft and not nearly pejorative enough to cover the territory in question.
