(NewsBreakDaily.org) – On Thursday, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) shared the news of his adopted Cuban son. The lawmaker has been raising Nestor Galban since 2014 when he legally immigrated to the US from Cuba.
You’d think that this would be celebrated news for any rational human being. But within hours of the Congressman revealing his son, he was being attacked by both the Left and the media, though one could argue that they’re one and the same.
For all those wondering, this is my son Nestor. We share no blood but he is my life. He came from Cuba (legally, of course) six years ago and lives with me in Florida.
I am so proud of him and raising him has been the best, most rewarding thing I’ve done in my life. pic.twitter.com/JB96wzOzYU

The media and the woke mob on social media attacked Gaetz and suggested there was something untoward going on with the young boy. They just couldn’t accept that the Congressman is doing something honorable.
Some Republicans were quick to come to Gaetz’s defense. He also got one unlikely Democrat to speak up for him.
Former Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) defended Gaetz right away. She tweeted out that while she doesn’t agree with Gaetz on too much politically, they’re actually very good friends.
Many of you know @mattgaetz & I have an unlikely friendship. I can’t stand a lot of his beliefs but he’s been there for me when others haven’t. He talks about Nestor more than anything, has done so much for his son & is truly a proud dad. This #freenestor thing is bullshit. Stop. https://t.co/qqOx9opXzH

Hill has had her own problems with the rabid hateful press. She was forced to resign her seat in Congress following a scandal last year. Gaetz was one of the few people on either side of the aisle who defended her.
Now, Hill is standing up for what’s right while her Republican friend is under fire. It’s nice to see that some things are above politics.
