Tuesday, October 22, 2019

It's been less than a week since the release of a secretly recorded conversation in which Dennis Bonnen told members of his own party that President Donald Trump "is killing us" and called a female lawmaker "vile." Now the first-term Texas GOP House Speaker has announced he will not seek re-election. Bonnen says in a statement Tuesday "it is clear that I can no longer seek re-election" as either a state representative or house speaker.

In the GOP, the truth will set you free.... of your job.

I mean, ya gotta know that it was telling the truth about Trump, not dissing a woman that hurt him in Red Texas.

When telling the obvious truth about the head of state costs someone their livelihood the head of state shouldn't be in office.

"When telling the obvious truth about the head of state costs someone their livelihood the head of state shouldn't be in office."

Try telling the deaf, dumb, blind, spineless and brain-dead Texas Republicans that.
