Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) on Monday told Fox News personality Sean Hannity why he allowed his “son” Nestor to enjoy spring break in Panama City beach.
“My son is a college freshman,” the two-term Republican congressman said of Nestor who Gaetz revealed in 2020 had been living with him for six years. While Gaetz continues to claim Nestor is his son — it does not appear he has formally adopted him, and he has previously referred to him in social media posts as a “helper,” a “House page,” and a “local student.”
“He had no real graduation, no prom, and I struggled with whether or not to allow him to enjoy spring break at Panama City beach. I allowed him to have an abbreviated one,” Gaetz said. “I did not have a good night’s rest the entire time he was there until I knew he was safe, okay, and back at school.”

Gaetz’s appearance on Fox News drew many questions from skeptical Twitter users.
Bet Matt asked about Barron during that weekend girlfriend PR package she bought from Tiffany Trump last December, during his “I’m straight and like grown up White not-men people” tour.

He does not. He has some strange “relationship” with his ex-girlfriend’s little brother. He calls him his “son”, but admits he never adopted him. It’s the fucking weirdest story and the MSM completely ignored it.

Don’t forget living with his ACTUAL father for the last several years…
