Thank goodness for a voice of reason. Why can’t they seem to bring others on board?!

GOP senator thinks Donald Trump will not even win nomination for president in 2024Sen.

But who will follow in trumps tiny footsteps - RAFAEL or maybe ERNST or REYNOLDS from iowa or maybe DEATHSANTIS!! Republican voters SHOULD listen to trump and NOT VOTE!! Hahahahahalosers...

Why one red-state Senate Republican won't back Trump in 2024.MaddowBlog: Why won't Sen. Bill Cassidy support Donald Trump in 2024? Because the senator sees the former president as an electoral loser. MaddowBlog He won't support him because he knows that Trump is going to jail not because of his morals MaddowBlog Do you really think trump or any other republican cares come time for his re election he will find out when he loses MaddowBlog He can keep his losing record to go along with his impeachments.

GOP Senator Bill Cassidy doubts Trump will be 2024 nominee: He lost 'House, Senate, presidency''Elections are about winning,' the Louisiana Republican said. If trump is the best the GQP has they are officially dead. GOP has no one else. 😂 I think that for sure Trump will run in 2024 unless he's serving much deserved time in prison........because he wants to be king.
