Speaking at GOP retreat in a sports bar north of San Diego, a House Republican praised President Donald Trump in a round-about way by calling him an “assh*le” before adding, “But he’s our asshole.”
According to the San Diego Union Tribune, Rep. Duncan Hunter was addressing the Riverside County Young Republicans this past weekend when the topic of his relationship with the president came up.
“He’s just like he is on TV,” Hunter quipped. “He’s an assh*le, but he’s our assh*le.”
According to the UT, Hunter’s comment was confirmed by four witnesses, none of whom wished to give their names.
As for the San Diego congressman, he is currently under investigation for campaign fraud by the FBI.
