CHARLIE KIRK (HOST): Joe Biden is not going to sign some of these bills, right? And so therefore, they might call it a government shutdown, if that happens Matt, which you’re not cheering for. I’m cheering for a shutdown. I can’t stand the government. But you’re not, you’re a lawmaker, you’re responsible. I’m an upset patriot.

REP. MATT GAETZ (GUEST): I am not cheering for a shutdown, that is correct.

KIRK: Well, I am, I am. I want a shutdown, but that’s a separate issue. It’s not even a real shutdown. It’s a slow down or a pause.
