Trump endorses Gosar one day after U.S. House censure

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T




NEW YORK -- Former U.S. president Donald Trump is endorsing Rep. Paul Gosar, one day after the Arizona Republican was censured by the House of Representatives for posting a violent cartoon video that depicted a character with his face killing one with New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's.




Trump, in a statement, hailed Gosar as “a loyal supporter of our America First agenda” and “highly respected in Arizona,” and said he “has my Complete and Total Endorsement!” The statement made no mention of the House's rare rebuke - just the fourth in nearly 40 years - which also stripped Gosar of his two committee assignments, on the Natural Resources and the Oversight and Reform panels.

Gosar has said the video, which was produced by his taxpayer-funded office, had been mischaracterized and was not intended to be a threat. In addition to Ocasio-Cortez, the the video also depicted Gosar's character attacking President Joe Biden with swords.

Gosar is no stranger to controversy. He's made appearances at fringe right-wing events, including a gathering in Florida last February hosted by a man who has promoted white supremacist beliefs, and earlier this year looked to form an America First Caucus with other hard-line Republican House members that aimed to promote “Anglo-Saxon political traditions.”

Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, meanwhile, has called the censure an “abuse of power” by Democrats and signaled payback should Republicans retake the House majority next year.

Well, we all know trmp is a man of low morals, ethics, and character. Why are you all surprised by this latest action of his?

now that trumpsters find it deemed perfectly acceptable, I'm counting on a cartoon being released real soon showing their hero's skull contents becoming an organic mural on a wall.

Not surprising when you consider who and what he is.

Either he thinks the public is stupid or he is...

... based on his family's support, I'm betting that one of his siblings will probably take him out.

So McCarthy is threatening pay back over the censure of a racist bigot who posts vids of him killing his opponents.

Not sure that is the hill I would want to stand on.
