Activist teen from Texas with liberal views and savvy in social media may prove to be a political match for 40-year-old Matt Gaetz.

The congressman made these remarks on Saturday at a gathering for a group that promotes conservative values in secondary and tertiary education:

Must read-

“Why is it that the women with the least likelihood of getting pregnant are the ones most worried about having abortions? Nobody wants to impregnate you if you look like a thumb.”

He continued, “These people are odious from the inside out. They’re like 5’2″, 350 pounds.”

Media attention was focused on the comments, including a Newsmax article that Gaetz retweeted to his 1.4 million followers alongside a photo of liberal activist Olivia Julianna, 19, and the words “Dander raised.”

When asked if he was calling women who attend abortion rallies “ugly and overweight,” the congressman replied, “Yes.” He also retweeted an interview he did with a local ABC affiliate.

The next move probably caught Gaetz off guard, as he made his name by engaging in public feuds with liberals.

Within a few short hours of Gaetz’s TV interview, Julianna took to Twitter to redirect the media attention the Florida lawmaker had directed toward her. She declared an online abortion-rights fundraiser. She then turned her attention to cruelly mocking Gaetz.

Just now, Julianna retweeted the Reid Out interview and said they had raised over $1.1 million.

“Thank you @JoyAnnReid!” she wrote. “We raised $1.1 million in under 72 hours because of the rude comments. Imagine what we can do with a solid year of planning to elect democrats across the country.”
