‘Higher standards in men’: Jan 6 drama queen Cassidy Hutchinson denies dating Matt Gaetz

Former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson, who testified against former President Trump in last year’s Jan. 6 hearings, smirked that she never dated Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), claiming that he doesn’t meet her standards.

Hutchinson did a highly predictable interview with MSNBC host Rachel Maddow on Monday, showing that she is extremely full of herself. They discussed her new book “Enough,” where she gives a dubious recounting of alleged encounters with Gaetz.

“There’s also a couple of instances involving Congressman Matt Gaetz,” Maddow said, looking like she was about to retch. “I will omit most of the context here, but I’ll tell you the lines that have kept me up and uncomfortable.”

Maddow then began reading from the book that evidently seeks to make Hutchinson somehow relevant once more.

“’He chuckled and brushed his thumb across my chin,’” Maddow quoted, reading the excerpt from the book aloud. “’Has anyone ever told you you’re a national treasure?’”

She then quoted more from the book about another supposed encounter.

“You describe a night at Camp David when he was leaning against the door frame while somebody answered the door to another cabin,” Maddow continued.

“‘Matt straightened his posture when Kevin McCarthy asked him what he wanted. He explained he had seen my golf cart parked outside and thought this was my cabin. Embarrassed, I got up and asked Mr. Gaetz what he needed. He explained that he was lost and asked me to escort him to his cabin,'” the host read.

“‘I told him to proceed around the circle drive. All the cabins are clearly marked. It’s impossible to get lost. He asked me one more time to leave with him. Kevin McCarthy then said, quote, ‘Get a life, Matt,’ and shut the door,’” the leftist host finished.

Maddow claimed that when Gaetz was asked to comment on the book, he said that he and Hutchinson dated.

“He told us, ‘I don’t remember either of these events and based on Cassidy’s prior false statements, I doubt they occurred. I did date Cassidy for a few weeks when we were both single years ago. We parted amicably and remained friends thereafter even during President Trump’s post[-]presidency,’” the statement reportedly noted.

Maddow then asked Hutchinson if that were true.

“I’m sorry to ask you if you want to respond to that, but I’m going to ask you if you want to respond,” Maddow said, relishing the answer.

“I’d love to respond to that right now, so thank you for giving me the option,” Hutchinson responded.

She told Maddow that she did not date Gaetz because she has “much higher standards in men.”

“I will give Matt credit in part of his statement that we did have an amicable working relationship and we were good friends at points. Matt Gaetz, in my opinion, is somebody that I personally do not hold in high regard in terms of trust and I do not think that Matt Gaetz has the best track record for relationships and condoning his relationships, how he thinks that they might be defined,” she went on to state, disparaging Gaetz while trying to portray herself as trustworthy.

“I will say on behalf of myself I never dated Matt Gaetz. I have much higher standards in men. And Matt, frankly, is a very unserious politician. We see that today with the ruckus that he is causing on Capitol Hill with the spending negotiations. And I’m not– I don’t really have much else to say to somebody that is more concerned about a soundbite than actually passing legislation,” Hutchinson acidly commented.

Conservatives are likely to dismiss Hutchinson’s claim as either unnoteworthy or as dishonest as they feel her Jan. 6 testimony was. But leftists are certainly eating it up.
