Jason Chaffetz tweets article about his wife that discusses what a coward he is

Amid rumors that House Oversight Committee Chair Jason Chaffetz is planning to leave his Congressional term in the dead of night, the Utah congressman tweeted a bizarre article about his wife Julie Chaffetz. It was one of those Heavy.com SEO “5 Facts You Need to Know” articles that seem to pop up into search five seconds after someone goes viral for drunkenly assaulting their Uber driver or getting arrested for refusing to leave a university cafeteria after demanding jalapeño mac and cheese while blacked out.

For some reason, Heavy.com wrote one on Julie Chaffetz and included details of the Utah congressman and his wife meeting at Brigham Young University and going on the world’s most boring first date. The article also discussed what a feckless coward the congressman was in abandoning his convictions regarding Trump’s Access Hollywood “grab em by the pussy” tape right before the election.

From Heavy:

When a tape was released in October 2016 on which Donald Trump brags about groping women, Jason Chaffetz withdrew his endorsement, saying that he could not look his daughter in the eye and tell her that he supports someone like Trump.

“I’m out,” Chaffetz said. “I can no longer in good conscience endorse this person for president. It is some of the most abhorrent and offensive comments that you can possibly imagine, and my wife and I have a 15 year old daughter, and if I can’t look her in the eye and tell her these things, I can’t endorse this person.”

However, by the end of the month, Chaffetz said he would in fact be voting for Donald Trump for president.

So Chaffetz either still hasn’t looked his teen daughter in the eye since October or started looking her in the eye towards the end of October. Somewhere down the line he became okay with the president’s bragging about grabbing pussies.

Chaffetz, without a shred of irony, shared a post that describes the world’s most boring first date.

“Well, I don’t remember the first time I met him, so I guess it didn’t go so well,” she said. “He claims…he asked me out, but I don’t really remember.”

On their first date, Jason took Julie to go see the evening news taped, and they got frozen yogurt afterwards.

The soon-to-be former GOP congressman didn’t explain why he shared the post, but I am enjoying all the Twitter replies asking him if the couple are looking for a third.
