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

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
