Cornyn says he broke with Trump on deficit, border wall, but kept opposition private

FORT WORTH

U.S. Sen. John Cornyn acknowledged Friday that at times he has disagreed with President Trump on issues such as budget deficits and debt, tariffs and trade agreements and border security.

But, the senior Republican senator from Texas, who is being challenged by Democrat MJ Hegar, said he chose to work on those disagreements with the president’s staff in private discussions, rather than by publicly voicing his opposition.

(Snip)

Cornyn initially described his relationship with Trump as “maybe like a lot of women who get married and think they’re going to change their spouse, and that doesn’t usually work out very well.”

Cornyn continued: “I think what we found is that we’re not going to change President Trump. He is who he is. You either love him or hate him, and there’s not much in between. What I tried to do is not get into public confrontations and fights with him because, as I’ve observed, those usually don’t end too well.”

3. He has a commercial defending pre-existing conditions.

After he's voted repeatedly to cut them out of the ACA.

Blatant lying.

16. Whitehouse read off

A long list of what Cornyn has voted for. At first Cornyn looked shocked, then tried to laugh it off. Along with the McConnell cackle when Amy McGrath laid out his lack of doing anything, that laugh is not working so well this year.

8. No, John, you simple asshole. That's not the way it works. You own him and he owns you.

I expected no less from an idiot who got elected Senator from Texas because he looks like a Senator from Texas. Molly Ivins and Ann Richards had your number.

9. Right on cue, they will all begin mumbling about deficits

now that they got theirs and are facing a Dem administration.

I hate them so much. Obvious, but am driven to blurt this out hourly.

22. Let's check his voting record, shall we?

https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/congress-trump-score/john-cornyn/

According to 538, Cornyn voted against shitgibbon on:
The 116th Congress:
- Funding the Dept of Commerce and other parts of the government, 10/31/2019
- Providing disaster relief to Puerto Rico, 05/23/19
- Disapproving of withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan and Syria, 02/04/19

The 115th Congress:
- Nonbinding motion calling for congressional approval of national security tarrifs, 07/11/2018
- Imposing sanctions on Russia, Iran, and North Korea, 07/27/2017
- Imposing sanctions on Russia, 06/14/17


So his average is to vote against shitgibbon 1 1/2 times per year. Wow! How did poor Corny survive?!

It probably won't help with that "I'm brave enough to disagree with the prez" bullshit, but it'll unclog your sinuses a little.....
