Matt Gaetz’s Feud With Ron Perlman Leads to a Backfired Insult

Matt Gaetz and Ron Perlman

The latest fight between a Life star and a Republican came this weekend between Ron Perlman and Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz after the pro-Trump politician condemned the U.S. Soccer Federation for removing a requirement for players to stand during the national anthem.

Gaetz said on Twitter this past week that he was planning to write a bill forcing athletes on USSF teams to stand during the anthem. Some U.S. Soccer players such as two-time World Cup champion Megan Rapinoe have made headlines in the past for kneeling during the traditional pre-match playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

“If our soccer team is going to disrespect our anthem and our flag, it is not essential for us to have,” Gaetz tweeted.

Perlman responded sharply this weekend, tagging Gaetz and Donald Trump in a tweet that read, “The US Soccer team called and you guessed it… said they couldn’t give any less of a f–k about what you two dipsh–s think.”

The exchanges only got more heated from there, with Gaetz attacking Perlman as a “racial justice warrior” who “had no problem in Life portraying the White Supremacist leader of a motorcycle gang.” Perlman responded by saying it was “So rewarding playing a–h—s on tv. Tell me sir, how is it actually being one?”

“You wouldn’t be tweeting about me if my message weren’t true & effective,” Gaetz wrote. “Threatens your wokeness. How triggered will you be when [Trump] is re-elected? More or less than when crooked [Hillary Clinton] lost?”

As for Gaetz’s jab at Perlman’s “Sons of Anarchy” role, that was shut down by “Venture Bros.” star and comedian James Urbaniak, who noted that a very famous Republican also once played a similarly unscrupulous role.

“Matt, you might want to sit down for this,” Urbaniak tweeted. “In the film ‘The Killers’ (1964, dir. Don Siegel) Ronald Reagan plays a homicidal gangster.”
