Rep. Matt Gaetz Talks About Adopted Son After Clash With Dem Lawmaker

Following a sparring match with a Democratic colleague this week during a hearing, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) is sharing some personal information.

Gaetz is publicly introducing people to his adopted son, Nestor. In a tweet on Thursday, the Florida lawmaker wrote, “For all those wondering, this is my son Nestor. We share no blood but he is my life.”

Emphasizing that his son came to the U.S. “legally, of course,” Gaetz shared that Nestor came to the country from Cuba just over six years ago — when he was 12 years old — and lives with him in Florida.

“I am so proud of him and raising him has been the best, most rewarding thing I’ve done in my life,” the Florida Republican wrote.

In another tweet, Gaetz publicly shared more information about his adopted son, explaining how Nestor just turned 19 years old and will be heading to university.

Apparently sharing more about the confrontation with Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.) during Wednesday’s hearing on police reform, Gaetz said, “As you can imagine, I was triggered when (to make an absurd debate point) a fellow congressman diminished the contributions of Republicans because we don’t raise non-white kids. Well, I have.”

It seems Gaetz was referring to the hearing the day prior where he clashed with Richmond, as IJR previously reported.

See the exchange below:

“Are you suggesting that you’re certain that none of us have non-white children? Because you reflect on your black son, and you said none of us could understand,” Gaetz said at one point to Richmond during the heated exchange.

Richmond quickly responded, “Matt, Matt, stop. I’m not about to get sidetracked about the color of our children.” After some back and forth, Gaetz later added, “You’re claiming you have more concern for my family than I do? Who in the hell do you think you are?”

Later, Richmond asked, “Was that a nerve?” to which Gaetz responded, “Yeah, you’re damn right it was a nerve.”


  1. There was time in the 1800s when people had duels, with guns, remember Hamilton & Burr and the caning of Charles Sumner, by Preston Brook’s relative over pre Civil war vitriol by Sumner of Massachusetts. Maybe Gaetz and Richmond should duel over Richmond’s snotty comments and see who ends up in the hospital or DEAD. If the vitriol of both parties is getting more vicious and BLM and rioters want to tear stuff up & become a seperate entity like CHOP, CHAZ or whatever, maybe the return of maximum retribution should return, never mind that we’re more “civilized” in the 20th & 21st Centuries. Lets start kicking some ass, assh*les

    1. And Richmond wasn’t using his son as a prop? Sounds like the Dem brought up raising children.

    2. and your a schmuck,putz and we should meet with pistols and duel it out. The winner keeps writing and talking s**t, the other is deceased and very quiet.

    3. HOLY $#!+!!!! Democrats play victim 24/7 with reparations and, “stolen land” BS. The democrat party has been USING the black population as props throughout history. Where’s your African scarf, tool?

      1. I am confused.

        WHEN did I ever say that Democrats were perfect? That doesn’t mean that I am willing to give an inch on the crap American Fascist Party members or voters commit. Not one inch for anyone on either side.

  2. Perhaps if the “black males” actually become REAL fathers and mentors, than maybe we won’t have to see all this rioting and LOOTING everyday. Why are there so many one parent (women) black families? Start taking responsibility for those babies, stay out of jail, stop using drugs and maybe then you, too, will feel safe.

    1. As I understand it, the “Great Society” that Johnson signed into law actually incentivized black males to leave their families and created single-parent households so they could get welfare. He was quite proud of that and said that the democrats would “own the black vote” forever. Apparently, breaking up 2 parent households was more important to him and the democrats than keeping the integrity of the family. So let’s look at the democrats on this one!

  3. Who raised this “ baby” the first 12 years of his life? You know the : bully years…the braces years.. thehomework years. The learn to drive years .. the respect your elders years.. the go to church years.. the don’t lie, cheat steal years . He was a distinct person when this “Dad?” Got him to raise. Give me a break This is the age they sent his “buddy” Trump AWAY to military?\ boarding school. He didn’t “raise “ this kid. He housed him for 6 of his 18 years.

    1. Wow! What BBC an insane remark! YOU have NO IDEA what the child went through the first 12 years, I don’t either. Maybe he had no real parent in his life. Maybe Gaetz had to teach him all those things you mentioned. You just can’t stand that a Republican spoiled you vision of what a Republican really is! Poor you.

  4. Poor kid having an entitled, male, Caucasian trash n*gger

    asshole and drunk for a dad.

    1. Nobody said Richmond raised Nestor… and you’re a racist for calling him the n-word! Oh, wait – you meant Gaetz (Caucasian). I guess that makes it OK, DemonKKKrat punk? You and your racist kind haven’t changed since the Civil War, when the only 2 groups owning slaves were Dims… and other black people!

      1. Greg :

        I am a Caucasian.

        You are a stupid Caucasian trash n*gger

        and an absolute offense to the Caucasian race.

      1. Oh No snowflake BWH’s cherished opinions are hurt !

        Bless the pathetic piece of shit.
