Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) is a far-right Republican who led Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) official office — yet even he is sick of President Donald Trump’s ongoing feud with Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who has been dead for seven months.

“I disagree with the POTUS standing in front of M1A1 Abram tanks & the American flag and spending time trashing POW veteran and former US Senator McCain, and as Commander-in-Chief characterizing our time fighting in the Middle East as an unqualified disaster,” said Roy during a late-night thread Thursday.

“I agree we should re-think our strategy [and] engagement there, but words matter to the heroes who have bled the ground red and accomplished much in the process,” Roy continued. “I disagreed also with Senator McCain on too many issues to count – particularly immigration.”

When it came to Trump’s complaint about McCain’s repeal of the Affordable Care Act, Roy said he would have voted against it too, but for different reasons. Trump has said that McCain campaigned on “repeal and replace,” but critics say the bill was far from it. Roy called the bill McCain opposed a “fake Obamacare repeal bill,” saying he fought against it at the time. Indeed, the bill also did not include a replacement to the healthcare legislation, which would have thrown 28.9 million people off of their health insurance.

“I have stood by the President and will continue to do so when it comes to policies that will secure the border, drain the swamp, restore fiscal sanity, and establish healthcare freedom,” Roy continued. “But I see only harm and no benefit in looking backward.”

Roy urged the president to stop bullying a deadman and focus on doing the work Americans elected him to do.

“Our border remains unsecure. Our debt mounts at $100 million per hour. Our healthcare remains too expensive and burdensome. Our military remains stretched thin and in need of clarity of mission. Let’s move on,” Roy closed.

Republicans are giving Trump ‘two more weeks’ to see the ‘writing on the wall’ before intervening: CNN’s Raju

Top Republican officials are remaining silent as President Donald Trump continues peddling false conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential election, but a new report from CNN's Manu Raju suggests their patience does have its limits.

During an interview with CNN host Jim Sciutto, Raju said that Republicans know they're going to have to acknowledge President-elect Joe Biden won the election at some point, although they're trying to string it out for as long as they can to avoid angering the president.

"Republican senators tell me they believe this will all sort itself out on December 14th," he explained. "I have it at two more weeks, hoping it gets resolved by the time that the state electors are chosen, and at that time they hope the president sees the writing on the wall and they do not have to get involved."

Here’s how Biden plans to roll back Trump’s executive orders in his first 100 days

Published

On Tuesday, CNN reported that President-elect Joe Biden is already mapping out his agenda for the first 100 days — including a series of actions rolling back outgoing President Donald Trump's executive orders on a wide spectrum of issues.

"Trump officials have gutted or hamstrung agencies whose charters clash with the President's long-running efforts to crush what his former chief strategist derisively labeled 'the administrative state,'" reported Gregory Krieg, MJ Lee, and Sarah Mucha. "That means an early effort, Biden indicated in his NBC News interview, to rebuild the Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA, he said, has been 'eviscerated' by Trump."

Trump is losing to Biden again and again in a desperate attempt to avoid being forever labeled a loser: columnist

Published

on

Writing in the Washington Post this Monday, columnist Eugene Robinson says that President Trump is suffering loss after loss to President-elect Joe Biden in his attempt to overturn the election's results. "Trump was declared the loser slightly after Election Day; he loses repeatedly and decisively in court; he loses in recounts and then demands re-recounts, which he will also lose," Robinson writes. "So much losing!"

According to Robinson, Trump's motivation may be the fact that Republicans in general did well in 2020, whereas he did not, getting "creamed" by 6 million votes.

In Trump's egocentric worldview in which absolutely everything is about oneself, the danger lies in the fact that he "sees himself as the boss and sees all those for whom he has done favors as his vassals," Robinson writes.
