#EndorseThis: Republican Giggles On Air At Heroic Description Of Trump

Meet the new boss…same as the old boss.

This is not at all a defense of President Trump or his far-right policies. But one of the myths about Trump invented by so-called “liberal” tabloids is that his political game represents a new, advanced form of evil.

In today’s clip, GOP strategist Tara Setmeyer can’t contain her laughter as pro-Trump partisan Steve Cortes uses a live CNN debate to cast 45 as an angel who has ended corruption and lobbying in D.C.
