Conservative Republican legislators are quickly dropping one after another from the new Trump Party. When people speak the truth, one that varies from the ex-president’s “truth,” in his mind they became the enemy. After all, look at former Vice President Mike Pence (R). All we saw for four years was him gazing at his boss like a love-sick kid. But make one mistake, and 45 calls for your head. Why are they leaving? Let us ask Representative Anthony Gonzalez (R-OH), shall we?

The moderate Republicans left their jobs long ago, leaving behind only the Trump clingers, the most conservative of the conservatives. But even the GOPers recognized that either they lived in the Trump “reality” show, or he would primary them. Ironic that the former president starred in a reality show on television when he did not, in fact, have a true reality.

As promised, Trump endorsed Max Miller became the two-term congressman’s top challenger, according to The New York Times:

‘[Representative Gonzalez was] one of 10 Republicans who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump for inciting the Jan. 6 riot on the Capitol — will not seek re-election to his northern Ohio seat in 2022.’

Gonzalez, 37, released a statement via tweet late Thursday. He called the former president “a cancer for the country, according to NBC News:

“Since entering politics, I have always said that I will do this job for as long as the voters will have me and it still works for my family.’

‘As Elizabeth and I consider the realities of continuing in public service while juggling the increasing responsibilities of being parents to our two beautiful children, it is clear that the best path for our family is to not seek re-election next fall. It is also true that the current state of our politics, especially many of the toxic dynamics inside our own party, is a significant factor in my decision.’

Trump came out with his childish rebuttal Friday in a statement saying “good riddance” to the “RINO” (Republican In Name Only):

‘This is no loss for Ohio or our Country and, most importantly, we have a great candidate who was substantially leading Gonzalez in the polls, Max Miller, who I have given my Complete and Total Endorsement.’

‘This is no loss for Ohio or our Country and, most importantly, we have a great candidate who was substantially leading Gonzalez in the polls, Max Miller, who I have given my Complete and Total Endorsement.’

Gonzalez had been raising more money than Miller:

‘You can fight your butt off and win this thing. but are you really going to be happy? And the answer is, probably not.’
