House Reps. Matt Gaetz (R-Florida) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) have announced plans for a nationwide tour of rallies and speeches called the “America First Tour” with a mission statement of exposing “Republicans In Name Only” (RINOs) and “the radical left.”

“The radical left is coming for you. And they know I’m in the way. Come stand with me as we fight back together against this radical president and his far left agenda,” Gaetz can be heard saying in a new radio ad airing in Florida.

Gaetz is still reeling from a widening set of allegations that the Florida representative had sex with a 17-year-old girl and broke sex trafficking laws. Greene was shamed in the House after she was removed from committee assignments for spreading conspiracy theories and petitioning for the execution of prominent Democrats from her personal Facebook account.

“There are millions of Americans who need to know they still have advocates in Washington D.C., and the America First movement is consistently growing and fighting,” Gaetz wrote in a statement. “The issues that motivate us include ending America’s forever-wars, fixing the border Joe Biden broke on day one, prioritizing Americans, not illegal migrants, reshoring industries sold to foreign adversaries, ensuring real election integrity, and taking on the threat of the Chinese Communist Party. These issues are bigger than any one election and we remain ready to take our party and our country back.”

I know I wouldn’t have expected anything else from him.”
