Trump Releases Statement Endorsing the Vile Rep. Gosar Because Of Course He Did

Because why wouldn't he?

It turns out that all you really have to do to get a Trump endorsement is be an absolute pile of trash.

Yes, we’ve already observed that multiple times in the past, but it really comes into stark reality this week, after watching Trump take exactly zero time at all in endorsing Paul Gosar for reelection. Gosar is the Arizona Republican who recently shared a doctored anime video depicting him doing harm to his political opponents, got censured for it, and immediately shared it again afterward.

Guess when Trump decided to endorse him. That’s right, after Congress decided he’d done something offensive.

Continuing her tradition of helping Trump circumvent his Twitter ban by posting literally everything he says, spokeswoman Liz Harrington shared his statement, which read:

Congressman Paul Gosar has been a loyal supporter of our America First agenda, and even more importantly, the USA. Paul is a Congressman who is highly respected in Arizona, strong on Crime, Borders, our Military, and our Veterans. He continually fights for Lower Taxes, Less Regulations, and our great, but under siege, Second Amendment. Paul Gosar has my Complete and Total Endorsement!

Ah, the famed Complete and Total Endorsement™. That hasn’t gone well for quite a few who have received it. And Gosar has been in the news just a little too much lately. Couple that with the fact that even his family members are going on interviews and saying that he’s not just dangerous, but deserves to be kicked out of Congress, and Gosar may be facing an uphill battle in his reelection fight.

Unfortunately, as a resident of his district myself, I can assure you that there are plenty of supporters. Depending on how far you park from the door of the grocery store, you are liable to see six or maybe even seven “Trump Won” bumper stickers in the parking lot on your way in.

Let’s see how this works out for Congressman Gosar.
