Exclusive excerpt from Matt Gaetz’s new book, ‘Firebrand’ — ‘Air Force One: Of victories and quarantines’
Matt Gaetz.

Gaetz recalls some 'momentous decisions' made on the presidential plane.

Representing Florida’s 1st Congressional District, the reddest in the state, Matt Gaetz has cultivated an in-your-face style, a flair for the dramatic and a bromance with President Donald Trump.

All of which is front-and-center in his new book, “Firebrand: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the MAGA Revolution,” which goes on sale tomorrow.

Florida Politics has been offered a sneak peek at three chapters from Gaetz’s new book, to be highlighted over three weeks. In Chapter 15 — titled “Air Force One: of Victories and Quarantines” — he recalls momentous decisions made while he was aboard the presidential plane.

    Matt Gaetz is such an embarrassment for Florida. He does nothing but make excuses for the criminal buffoon in the White House. This same buffoon calls many of Mr. Gaetz constituents losers and suckers because they have honorably served in the US military. Mr. Gaetz needs to pry his limps from Mr. Trump’s backside and start acting like he doesn’t believe that the men and women of Florida’s 1 District are suckers and losers, for once
