A Republican congressman and a conservative commentator Erick Erickson allegedly unleashes a slew of hateful remarks about President Trump.
This, according to Erickson, is exactly how an interaction went when he recently caught up with “[one]of the President’s congressional defenders” who “has privately decided he hates Trump and wants to unload.”
Of the interaction with the anonymous congressman, Erickson explained the situation as follows:
“He is not happy with President Trump. He was never a die-hard Trump supporter. He supported him in the general and never expected him to win. But he did. So the congressman, whose district Trump won, has been a regular supporter on Fox News and elsewhere defending the President. He is happy to be quoted, so long as I don’t name him. He says he just needs to vent. I suggest what we’re doing is one of the reason’s Trump won — a congressman says nice things in public and bad things in private.”
And indeed, the juxtaposition of comments said in public and those said in private provide a harrowing look into exactly how Donald Trump, in fact, was elected as president.
With all of the party politics and sucking up that occurs for politicians to get elected, they often go along with the majority opinion of their colleagues and constituents — even when that means contradicting their own opinions and values. It’s sad, but true.
“He may be an idiot, but he’s still the President and leader of my party and he is capable of doing some things right,” the congressman allegedly asserted. “But damm*t he’s taking us all down with him. We are well and truly f***ed in November. Kevin [McCarthy] is already circling like a green fly circling sh*t trying to take Paul’s [Ryan] job because nobody thinks he’s sticking around for Nancy [Pelosi]. She’s going to f**k up the cafeteria again too. [Lord’s name in vain], at least I’ll probably lose too and won’t have to put up with that sh*t.”
With this mystery Republican congressman clearly at his wit’s end, he couldn’t help but completely drag the Commander in Chief through the mud.
Other excerpts from the alleged encounter:
“It’s like Forrest Gump won the presidency, but an evil, really f***ing stupid Forrest Gump. He can’t help himself. He’s just a f***ing idiot who thinks he’s winning when people are b*tching about him. He really does see the world as ratings and attention. I hate Forrest Gump. I listen to your podcast and heard you hate it too. What an overrated piece of sh*t movie. Can you believe it beat the Shawshank Redemption?”
“I say a lot of sh*t on TV defending him, even over this. But honestly, I wish the motherf***er would just go away. We’re going to lose the House, lose the Senate and lose a bunch of states because of him. All his supporters will blame us for what we have or have not done, but he hasn’t led. He wakes up in the morning, sh*ts all over Twitter, sh*ts all over us, sh*ts all over his staff, then hits golf balls. F**k him. Of course, I can’t say that in public or I’d get run out of town.”
