Laughing at video of Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz getting milkshaked is extremely irresponsible

Last weekend, an activist and political rival of Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz irresponsibly threw a beverage at the congressman as he left a town hall meeting located at the Brew Ha-Ha restaurant in Pensacola.

The act of throwing beverages at politicians is called “milkshaking,” and it is not funny or acceptable in any way. As we all know, “milkshaking” politicians is a slippery slope that can lead to far worse scenarios.

Here are a few of the extremely unfunny things that could happen if we continue to laugh at this type of egregious assault:
  • Someone throws two milkshakes at Matt Gaetz
  • Matt Gaetz sits on a milkshake
  • Matt Gaetz drinks a milkshake but somehow misses his mouth and pours it in his eye
  • An inadvertent throw from a father and son playing catch with a milkshake hits Gaetz directly in the face
  • Matt Gaetz spills an entire vat of homemade milkshakes inside his dad’s BMW
  • A seagull devours an old milkshake left in a hot Florida parking lot and then shits on Matt Gaetz’s suit from 200 feet in the air
  • A T-shirt cannon firing 25 milkshakes malfunctions and covers Gaetz in delicious chocolate dairy products
  • Matt Gaetz considers filing a bill to ban milkshakes, but chooses not to because of government overreach
  • Matt Gaetz steps on a milkshake, and to make matters worse he can’t remove his foot from the Wendy’s cup
  • Matt Gaetz is innocently struck by milkshake crossfire between members of the so-called alt-right and an antifa super-soldier
