Pretty Much Says It All

Via the San Diego Tribune:

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) on Friday gave President Donald Trump a double-edged, profane compliment.

As quoted by the San Diego Union-Tribune, Hunter said at a Riverside County Young Republicans meeting that Trump is “just like he is on TV.”

“He’s an asshole, but he’s our asshole,” Hunter said.

Another attendee, Whitney Walsh, told the San Diego Union-Tribune that the crowd was more than onboard with Hunter’s assessment.

“Very much,” she said. “They were fine with that answer.”

That’s the difference between Republicans and the rest of us: they would align themselves with the worst and most venial if they thought they could advance their agenda and make money at it.
