Perlman fired back, igniting one of the more entertaining Twitter feuds in recent memory.
The "Hellboy" star accused Gaetz of only winning his election thanks to his dad's money, heavy gerrymandering, and hanging out with Holocaust deniers; Gaetz accused Perlman of being a hypocrite who was happy to play a white supremacist on "Sons of Anarchy", while mocking his wokeness.
The US Soccer team called and you guessed it... said they couldn’t give any less of a fuck about what you two dipshits think. @realDonaldTrump@mattgaetz
And while we’re at it fuckboi, what is this shit about playing your crowd with dog whistles like “Hollywood“, making them think culture is the thing that’s keeping them down? When it’s really you and your greed.
Ya know what, you’re right. A guy who wins a totally gerrymandered district with daddy’s money deserves our deepest admiration. You’re right..I only PLAY scumbags and grifters. You’re the real deal! @mattgaetz
However it wasn't Jordan who was waiting at the turnbuckle, but Ted Cruz:
Listen Hellboy. You talk good game when you’ve got Hollywood makeup & stuntmen. But I’ll bet $10k—to the nonpolitical charity of your choice—that you couldn’t last 5 min in the wrestling ring w/ @Jim_Jordan w/o getting pinned. You up for it? Or does your publicist say too risky? https://t.co/eRerYVe5kj
Cruz bet $10k Perlman couldn't take Jordan in a wrestling match; Perlman meanwhile simply couldn't believe he was talking to THE Ted Cruz.
Wait, is this THEE Ted Cruz? Holy shit man! Is this the same guy let little Donnie call his wife A dog and his father an assassin and now kisses his ass? Yo, can I get your autograph man? https://t.co/6QDwCaEkpv
He then countered Cruz's wager, offering $50k to Black Lives Matter if the Texas Senator would step into the ring with him.
I tell you what teddy boy, since mentioning jim jordan and wrestling is... problematic, why don’t we say fuck him and just make it you & me. I’ll give 50k to Black Lives Matter and you can keep all the tax payer money you were thinking of spending. https://t.co/6QDwCaEkpv
