Sen. John Cornyn’s utter spinelessness in the face of another Trumpian stunt was on full display today. Cornyn defended the use of tear gas and truncheons to clear the peaceful protesters in front of the White House yesterday so that Donald “Bunker Boy” Trump could have his photo op with “a Bible” in front of a church whose priest and bishop later denounced his actions.
Claiming that it was “for security purposes” Cornyn argued that BBT had the right to order tear gassing and forcible removal of protesters. Cornyn claims that the protesters were asked to clear “but refused to do so.” Notably, the 7 pm curfew was to kick in just a few minutes after Bunker Boy unleashed his shock troops on American citizens exercising their right to peaceably assemble. But Trump is too important to wait a couple of minutes.
Cornyn then played the ultimate Trump card – going after the press. According to Cornyn, the media is “never going to find any good or any positive development in anything.” Well Sen. Cornyn (Scumbag – TX), Red is looking hard to find the positive in using violent methods against peaceful protesters so that Bunker Boy can try to shed his cowardly image by walking across the street under an absurd amount of security to waive “a Bible” in front of the cameras. A Bible that he probably could not quote a single word from and surely has never read unless forced to.
It is painfully obvious that Bunker Boy prefers groveling bootlicks and Cornyn is willing to lick long and hard. How is the taste of leather John? Please vote this embarrassment out of office in November.
