    Trump endorses Thomas Massie: "First-rate Defender of the Constitution"

    Trump endorses Kentucky congressman he once denounced

    By BRUCE SCHREINER
    May 10, 2022

    U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie is back in the good graces of Donald Trump, who declared two years ago that the Kentucky maverick should be thrown out of the Republican Party.

    Massie won Trump’s endorsement Tuesday ahead of the Bluegrass State’s primary election next week. In a statement, Trump referred to the libertarian-minded congressman as a “Conservative Warrior” and a “first-rate Defender of the Constitution.”

    It’s quite a turnaround from March 2020, when Trump denounced Massie as a “third rate Grandstander” for trying to stall a sweeping $2.2 trillion coronavirus aid package.

    While his maneuver failed, Massie’s action forced hundreds of lawmakers to return to the Capitol after a nearly two-week recess — contradicting the wishes of public health experts who were urging people to keep a safe social distance from one another to avoid exacerbating the pandemic.

    At the time, Trump called Massie “a disaster for America, and for the Great State of Kentucky!” and urged GOP leaders to “throw Massie out of Republican Party!″

    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Trump had to do this. He got a huge ear-full from his own supporters for one of the most bone-headed moves ever in US politics (the denunciation of Massie). Signing the stimulus' and COVID relief bills, was equally as bone-headed.

    Massie was already well under way to win reelection despite Trump's endorsement, but nevertheless his endorsement now cements it.

    It improves your "track record" when you endorse candidates that are pretty much guaranteed to win. And don't forget, endorsements can be reciprocal...

    Well, there it is... from third rate Grandstander to First-rate Defender of the Constitution. We certainly knew that latter part.

    This goes to show that Trump thinks that people have goldfishesque attention spans.

    He's probably right.

    First rate defender of the constitution, but only a 3rd rate grandstander? Massie really needs to work on his grandstanding skills.

    He needs to go to the Senate I think where he can really hone his grandstanding skills.

    Good. Because Rep. Thomas Massie is my most favorite politician.

    Donald flip-flopped? Unpossible. Doesn't happen. Must be some 46D chess move that we'll see the benefit of in 2052.

    It's not a flip flop. Trump is more careful with his words than he is sometimes given credit for.

    It may well be the case that he still believes Massie has a lot of room for improvement in the quality of his grandstanding.
    There is nothing to fear from globalism, free trade and a single worldwide currency, but a globalism where free trade is competitively subsidized by each nation, a continuous trade war is dictated by the WTO, and the single currency is pure fiat, fear is justified. That type of globalism is destined to collapse into economic despair, inflationism and protectionism and managed by resurgent militant nationalism.

    The Turtle has to be replaced at some point. The sooner the better.

    Well at least he did make a gesture towards liberty which is good. Trump needs to acknowledge the Constitution and it's supporters as much as possible they will make or break him. I also hope he will help get rid of Liz Cheney we don't need any of the group that holds her up.

    The tiny percentage of constitutionalists among American voters won't be what makes or breaks Trump.

    Trump ran in 2016, both in the GOP primaries and in the general election, as a staunch anti-constitutionalist, and he was rewarded with the White House for it. If he flip flops too much on that, he will lose too much of his base of support to win in 2024.

    Would be nice if The Turtle came out and said after the midterms that he won't be the Senate Majority leader and give the reins to someone else.
