Beta Male: Matt Gaetz Asked For Trump’s Permission Before Proposing to His Wife

This has been quite a tumultuous year for controversial Florida congressman Matt Gaetz. In late March, news broke that Gaetz was considering leaving congress to become a political pundit at Newsmax.

WASHINGTON, DC – DECEMBER 11: U.S. House Judiciary Committee members Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) listens to opening statements during a markup hearing on the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump in the Longworth House Office Building on Capitol Hill December 11, 2019 in Washington, DC. The articles of impeachment charge Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. House Democrats claim that Trump posed a “clear and present danger” to national security and the 2020 election in his dealings with Ukraine over the past year.

Days later, the reason behind the Rep’s hasty plans were made clear. The Department of Justice was investigating Gaetz on possible sex trafficking charges.

The congressman also married his fiancee Ginger Luckey. The quick arrangement, though, led some to believe that Luckey was making sure that she wouldn’t have to testify against her now husband.

And according to a new report from Business Insider, the nuptials could not have happened without Donald Trump. Gaetz apparently asked Trump for permission before getting engaged.

The congressman had met Luckey at Mar-a-Lago back in March of 2020. He proposed to her in December of the same year at the country club. He needed Trump’s blessing first, though. Gaetz remarked, “You never want to upstage the big guy.” He also relays that the former president called the couple a “dynamic duo,” and sent over a bottle of Trump champage.

Despite the happiness of the wedding, Gaetz’s future looks turbulent. His friend Joel Greenberg, rumored to be involved in sex trafficking with Gaetz, has reached a deal with the Department of Justice.
