LOL: Here’s Why Matt Gaetz Just Said “OK Boomer” To Kellyanne Conway

(Tea Party PAC) – On Saturday, Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz (R) visited CNN’s “Smerconish” to discuss the potential federal legalization of marijuana and the disconnect between the opinions of the American people and the elected officials who have refused to act on the issue.

Host Michael Smerconish, in the segment, played a clip of White House adviser Kellyanne Conway’s comments on the safety of marijuana on her show back in April.

“For all the folks who talk about the benefits and the legality of marijuana, there are many health professionals and employers increasingly concerned that this is not your grandfather or your father’s marijuana,” she said. “The TCH [sic] components are much stronger. We just can’t say it’s all good for all people at this moment. We’re very concerned about the effect on the brain among young people.”

Gaetz’s response was a good-natured yet sarcastic “Ok, boomer.”

The friendly fire came when Smerconish asked Gaetz, who he called the “Trump whisperer,” if he had discussed the issue of marijuana legalization with Gaetz.

“I have worked to be a positive influence to the president on marijuana reform. To my friend Kellyanne Conway I would say, ‘ok boomer,’” Gaetz said, smiling. “I mean, that’s a very ‘boomer’ approach to marijuana for no other reason than it’s actually ‘THC’ not ‘TCH,’ and I think that her reflection shows a real ignorance to the science demonstrating that in states where there are marijuana programs, you see a reduction in Schedule 1 drug recommendations.”

He went on to describe the other benefits of the controversial drug, which include “a reduction in the types of overdoses that are crippling our country and hollowing out America” and an alternative to “heroin and opioids” as a method of pain relief.

As of Saturday afternoon, Conway had not issued any kind of response to Gaetz’s jab, although she did post an article on her Twitter account regarding the president’s recent meeting with “diverse shareholders” to discuss the use of e-cigarettes among American youth.

Bloomberg reported:

“During the extraordinary meeting, proponents and opponents of flavored vaping products openly argued with each other in front of the president and reporters invited to observe. The chief executive officer of Njoy Electronic Cigarettes, Ryan Nivakoff, accused the chief executive officer of market leader Juul Labs Inc., K C Crosthwaite, of deliberately marketing its products to children.”

“After listening to several of the participants, Trump said that he wants to ‘do something for everybody, where everybody’s happy.’”

This is Trump through and through. While the Democrats chase their own tails in their sham impeachment inquiry, he’s out there listening to the American people.

  1. Mick. You sound just like pencilneck shiffty shitty. Pull your head out of your (you know what) and get a little more educated on WHATS really going on and quit being a snowflake

  2. I do agree with her. Way to many chemicals in it today by most who grow for profits. A lot of what you smell today, smells like your dog ate it, crap it, you dried it and then smoked it. Then said “good sh..”. Just saying . It’s different for everyone

    • Mr. Baker,

      Education is the key. I am a “Boomer” that served in the Army for 13.5 years. I was injured several times that caused me severe pain. When I left the Army, I started recieving my care from VA. Their answer to pain was Opioids. I am a professional investigator, the opiods made it harder to think things through and I finally had enough. I started using Medical Marijuana. I am no longer in need of any of the opioids the VA gave out like candy for years. I can think clear again and am happy without all the other side effects of Opioids. And you may be right to be concerned with what some of the big commercial grows, but most people now use organics. Safe for the environment as well as the consumer. I no longer buy at a Medical Marijuana facility and grow my own. I haven’t been this pain free since my early 20’s. There is right and wrong on both sides of the issue. But, by keeping it illegal at the Federal level means that failing a drug test will cost you a job. Whereas , if I was still on Opioids, I could just show the prescriptions and would not be fired, fined, warned or even spoken to. SO: I cannot even apply to jobs where I could be very effective ONLY because I chose a more natural way of handling the pain. THAT is the disconnect.

  3. Knowing he has done nothing wrong, President Trump couldn’t care less about the Democrats’ impeachment inquisition; what he does care about is the American people. So, regardless of your politics, leave the man alone and let him do his job while we ALL reap the benefits!

    • what are you smoking Roger Heath? trump could give a rats ass about the american people, he just cares about what is best for him and how good he can make himself look. The republican toadies are twisting themselves in knots trying to come up with an explanation (and alternative reality) of what the facts are, and what they show is that trump is a wannabe mob boss who is as crooked as anyone can imagine. Yeah, the senate will probably wave their magic wand and say he is not guilty, but anyone with half a brain can see otherwise. Congratulations, you got what you asked for and now stand back and watch as he destroys what is left of our country.
