California hotel launches Matt Gaetz, MTG rally: “We just want to avoid this”
Representatives Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) represent the East Coast states in Congress, but their reputations are so notorious that they are struggling to find a place that will take them to the coast. Where is.
The Pacific Hills Banquet & Event Center in Laguna Hills canceled an “America First” rally after learning controversial Republicans would speak, the Orange County Register reports.
“As soon as we found out who the speakers were, we immediately canceled it,” managing director Javad Mirtavoosi told the newspaper. “We just thought it would be better for our establishment to cancel.”
The pair are still selling tickets to the event while searching for a new venue, Greene campaign spokesman Nick Dyer told the newspaper on Friday afternoon.
“We’re about to secure a location that will proudly host our America First Rally with Congressman Greene and Congressman Gaetz,” said Dyer.
The newspaper noted the context in which the event was canceled.
“In addition to supporting the controversial former president and many of his policies, the couple have faced their own controversies. Gaetz is under investigation on charges of having sex with a minor, while Green was kicked out of his House committees in February because of her comments supporting far-right extremists, ”the newspaper notes. Earlier this year, the two were linked with plans to create a political caucus that espouses the idea that the United States is an ‘Anglo-Saxon’ culture and that mass immigration is supplanting white culture – ideas previously espoused by white nationalists at the start of the caucus were dropped after a negative public response and the retreat from some GOP members. “
