Teen Uses Matt Gaetz’s Body-Shaming Insults To Raise $1.1M For Abortion Access

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

“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.
