  1. I mean who gets impeached two times during their first term? And who do most Americans 🇺🇸 decide by voting is definitely not worthy of a second term?
    Trump is by far the worst President to ever sit in the Oval Office. He has stained the integrity of that office and badly damaged our 🇺🇸 country.
    It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that a Trump endorsement is akin to the “Kiss of Death” Everything that lunatic touches unravels and heads south including his relationships with anyone in politics.

  2. It’s only the BEGINNING . 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏 we’re praying .

  3. Nope don't believe it they still have to do an audit and there better be a special counsel to oversee it!!!!!!

  4. Mark McKinnon not a Trump guy either, but I wonder if you realize how CLOWNISH that HAT makes you LOOK!!!!

  5. Tomorrow is august 1st and his Trumpist said he will be back at the WH.
    Should we worry about another disgrace attack like Jan 6?

  6. Trump cares more about ratings. He is quickly to sway one direction than another, after that another. He cares greatly about what other people think of him. When Trump is put into a corner, I am sure he will spill guys about Putin.

  7. I hope America is moving forward accepting what a liar and fraud and an instigator DJ Trump played on the attack of U. S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. Trump and his cronies have created and turned the Republican party morally bankrupt. The defeat of Trump's candidate in Texas is a victory for democracy!

  8. 45 has shelled out more money endorsing one person than he EVER paid in taxes his entire adult life as a "business man."

  9. Hasn't EVERYONE 45 endorsed lost? And all the money he's collecting in his "election fraud" claims isn't going towards his "fight" for "audits," but into his pockets and on endorsements of low life criminals like himself.

  10. Finally, some Republicans, Democrats, & Independents are not voting for these self-serving, ignorant Trumpian Republicans! Hurray for this area of Texas for getting the “wake-up” call!! Remember Texas while you froze this past winter, where were your Republicans?! One, Colon-Climber Cancun Cruz, wasn’t there nor was your governor! All you were left with was broken water pipes, and exorbitant bills to pay for energy you did not receive! Now when you melting with the heat, where are they?

  11. Seems that at least some of deeply red Texas' citizens have finally had enough of Trump's influence. Hopefully this is the first of many such decisions made by the voters of this country.

  12. A lot of Texans have already scraped the Trump poop from the soles of their boots… 😷 💩 🤠

  13. The Trump backed Republican candidate couldn't win in Texas. In TEXAS!!! There is a God after all.

  14. trump supporters are done…….Americans are sick of this crap , Americans want to move forward not backward……If you are a republican , please find a real man to vote for…..
