Rep. Matt Gaetz
(R-Fla.) was mocked by Seth Meyers
on Thursday after he was caught with his pants
down in Congress
the day before.
During a hearing before the House
Armed Services Committee on Wednesday, Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
, lectured Gaetz, who suggested that the US military
had embraced critical race theory
“I do believe it is important for those of us in uniform to be open-minded and widely read,” Milley said. “And the United States
Military Academy is a university
, and it is important that we train and understand — I want to understand white rage, and I am white — and I want to understand it.
Milley expressed outrage that the United States military was being accused of “being ‘woke’ or something else” for researching existing theories.
“The best part of that clip is Matt Gaetz’s face, which looks like he just tried to fit his square head into a round hole,” Meyers said on “Late Night
.” “The GOP
used to accuse anyone who opposed their wars of not supporting the troops, and now they’re accusing the troops of being too woke, and soon they’ll start accusing SEAL Team 6 of voter fraud.”
