Lifelong Fresno GOP voter destroys Devin Nunes for betraying his country to serve his ‘new master’ Trump

devin nunes mouth open

In an extended diatribe published by the Fresno Bee, a lifelong Republican who claims he loves the party because it reflects his Christian values absolutely destroyed his congressman, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA).

According to Andrew Shinn, a business professor at Fresno Pacific University, “I am one of the left-behind Republicans. I am a Christian and grew up thinking that voting Republican was the only option for people like me. Opposing abortion was all-important, followed closely by the value of integrity.”

“In the Republican party of my youth, the Constitution was a near-sacred document. We were the party who pounded it, memorized parts of it, stood up for it. I have taught it to my kids, just as my parents talked about it with me: in hushed tones and with reverence,” he continued before pointing out the day he saw the GOP differently.

“When Donald Trump was elected president, I wondered what had happened to my party. He was filthy, the opposite of everything that I was taught to strive for. His name was on strip clubs in Atlantic City and Las Vegas. He openly bragged about taking sexual advantage of women,” he wrote. “As a boy, I looked up in reverence to the men who stood on stage at the Promise Keepers conventions, preaching about living with integrity. They talked about being unselfish, sacrificing yourself for others, keeping promises at all costs. To see a president so out of sync with these values was jarring. Weren’t we the Moral Majority?”

Shinn then recalled when he first moved into Nunes’ district.

“I was proud to be represented by him,” he explained. “He was a farmer, one of the salt-of-the-earth people I could trust to carry out my commonsense Republican values. His influence grew and his family stopped farming in California, but I was proud to see him listed on Time’s Most Influential 40-Under-40 list of politicians to watch. He said then that the Founding Fathers were his political heroes, and I applauded. I voted for him in every election.”

“But Devin Nunes’s behavior became bizarre and erratic after President Trump’s election. His ardent support for this amoral man betrayed the values that we hold as Republicans and as Christians,” he charged. “He seemed to be possessed, serving a new master who neither knew about nor cared about the value of integrity or the ideas that Nunes’ former heroes Madison and Jefferson enshrined in our founding documents. When he followed President Trump into attacks on the free press, I saw the once-valued fourth estate under attack. Those who aspire to integrity encourage the accountability of the press. Those with something to hide attack it.”

According to the Republican, he is done with Nunes forever and said he will vote for Democratic nominee Andrew Janz in November.

“I don’t agree with all of his policy preferences, but my vote has to be about securing the future of our country. When he’s elected and we’ve had a chance to come to our collective senses, I may well join the fight against him in the future. But for now, I’m voting for Andrew Janz to ensure that we have a future,” he concluded.

Given that Trump has made his nominations of SCOTUS justices a cornerstone of his 2020 reelection campaign, many Twitter users pounced on the news to mock the president's loss at the hands of his own Supreme Court picks.

In a 7-2 decision that surprised many court observers, the Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that President Donald Trump cannot block a subpoena from the Manhattan district attorney seeking his tax returns.

Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, who were nominated by Trump, both joined the majority in ruling against the president.

"Two hundred years ago, a great jurist of our Court established that no citizen, not even the President, is categorically above the common duty to produce evidence when called upon in a criminal proceeding. We reaffirm that principle," Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the decision.
