Donald Trump torches influential congressman for supporting Marco Rubio

Real-estate mogul Donald Trump repeatedly blasted Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-South Carolina) on Sunday after reports emerged that the influential congressman is set to endorse Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) for president.

Trump, the Republican front-runner, pointed to Gowdy's high-profile October hearing on the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead.

"His hearings were a disaster. Everybody was looking forward to something that was going to be really productive. And he didn't win with those hearings. It was a total not-good for Republicans and for the country," Trump said Sunday morning on "Fox & Friends."

Gowdy chairs the House Republican-led Select Committee on Benghazi, which grilled former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the attack for 11 hours, much of which was broadcast live on cable news. That day was widely regarded as a political win for Clinton, the Democratic front-runner, though some critics chastised that media narrative.

But Trump was clearly unhappy with how Gowdy managed that hearing.

"I mean, beyond Republicans it was very bad for the country," he said. "So I hope he does a lot better for Marco than he did for the Benghazi hearings. Because they were not good. That was not a pretty picture."

We all had high hopes for the Trey. But I had noticed as had others that nothing was 'really ' happening with the hearings. My conclusion after a while. Trey is a front man.....a pathetic poor excuse for a prosecutor. He is weak that;s all Trey the Weakling.

We were all gravely disappointed with the Gowdy ah maybe he had the gout at the time you know? Now he will support Rubio............oh man talk about showing your colors.............

Trump will shake the whole shit box....looks like Trump will be peeling some tomatoes too ! lol

Trey Gowdy like the rest of the politicians in DC caved from the presser brought by the good old boys in DC who don't want to change the status quo in DC . The good old boys in DC are afraid of Donald Trump because they know no amount of presser can force Donald Trump to move in their direction . 

Trey sure let me down.

Biggest disappointment I've felt in years. Never thought that the boy would turn into the puppet! But I NOW KNOW there are no patriots left in oVomit's government . Mission accomplished, Transformation of our nation, COMPLETE~!!!!!!

I was trusting Gowdy to go the distance for the people.  Now I do not.

Boy, did Trump's remarks hit it!!

What everyone seems to forget is Gowdy was appointed by Boehner. The Benghazi hearings were never meant to go anywhere. It was to appease Republicans and keep them quiet a little while. It's all "political theatre". Boehner never had any intention to prosecute any of the criminals in office, as he was one of them. Gowdy is part of the Establishment, though he talks like he's fighting for us. Nothing has been done in any of the scandals since 2008. It's all theatre, while they destroy our country.

Exactly right, Julie!  I heard this morning that Marco has one foot in the establisment and the other in the conservative party.  Nothing good can come from that awkward position! And Tray Gowdy's support does neither one of them any goodl

AMEN!

Elaine,

Well glad you posted that ..that should, again, clarify Cruz's stand for those that believe he is a conservative.

Well look you know there are people who love the Hellary and will vote for her no matter what.....................

I will hold my opinion of Rep. Gowdy for now. Although I am VERY disappointed if he comes out and endorses Rubio. I have lost a lot of faith in him, if he does so. 

I would like to think, and give him the benefit of the doubt and say that he has the "goods" on Hillary and is waiting to bring them all out into the open around June or July of next year so as to ruin her chances of winning. However, that remains to be seen. 

Regardless, I cannot fathom how someone who has been, what appears to be, one of the best real conservatives in the republican party and still could endorse Rubio for president over the likes of Trump or Cruz. Let's pray that there is a LOT MORE behind this story and has yet to be told. 

WAKE UP AMERICA!!!

Trey is a man with a BIG mouth....but little to do about criminals in DC. No Guts ...No Glory!

ALERT ALERT

BREAKING:   Hillary Clinton Donor Ed Buck Arrested After Another Male Overdoses In His Seedy LA Apartment

Democrat donor and Hillary friend Ed Buck was finally arrested Tuesday night after a third man overdosed in his apartment.

The man who overdosed in Ed Buck’s Los Angeles apartment last week survived, however the other two victims previously died.

Ed Buck will be in court Wednesday.

Ed Buck loves to inject young black gay escorts with methamphetamine — the mother of one of Ed Buck’s victims described it as a fetish.

He was finally arrested after two black gay escorts died in his apartment from overdoses.

KTLA 5 reported:

The prominent Democratic donor and LGBTQ political activist Ed Buck was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house and providing methamphetamine to a 37-year-old man who overdosed last week, officials said.

Buck was charged with three counts of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Buck is accused of injecting the victim, who survived, with methamphetamine on Sept. 11.

of another young black gay escort was found at the West Hollywood home of Ed Buck, a top Democrat donor and political activist.

As previously reported, a black gay escort named Gemmel Moore died of a meth overdose at Ed Buck’s West Hollywood home in July of 2017.

The LA County District Attorney’s Office previously declined to prosecute Ed Buck saying the evidence was “insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that (Buck) is responsible for the death of Gemmel Moore,” which sparked an outrage from family members and others in the community.

Jasmyne Cannick told FOX and Friends nearly a dozen black men have come forward to speak on their experiences with “serial predator” Ed Buck.
Cannick also went off on the Democrat Party: “Over 77% of black people in California vote Democratic. We vote for Democrats.

It is a shame that when something like this happens, when you have the chair of your state party when at the time of this , Eric Bauman, who was willing to turn a blind eye as well as instruct others not to speak on it. As a black woman, as a black Democrat, I expect more from my party.

Last week, a black male was seen entering Ed Buck’s seedy LA apartment.
