Cornyn defended Trump for siphoning Pentagon budget to pay for border wall, but now claims he was ag

WASHINGTON – Sen. John Cornyn, trying to distance himself from President Donald Trump as Election Day looms, now says he opposed siphoning off billions from the Pentagon in order to build the border wall, a claim that directly contradicts multiple statements defending that budget maneuver.

In February, for instance, he argued that congressional Democrats had left Trump no choice by refusing to authorize wall funding.

“I believe border security is part of national security. So I support the efforts to accomplish that secure border,” Cornyn told reporters on Feb. 20, asked about Trump’s recent move to siphon another $3.8 billion from the Pentagon’s budget. “The president’s left with a bad hand and has to play the best hand he can.”

But Friday, 18 days before voters decide whether to give him a fourth term or replace him with Democrat MJ Hegar, Cornyn met with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram editorial board and insisted otherwise.

1. Cornyn is consistent.

He has been a GOP puppet since his time as Texas AG.

2. The Nuremberg-style trials will not be kind to him or others

Assuming justice is coming at some point.

3. Cornyn sucks at politics

This is the same guy that tweeted out a picture of Democrats from 2018 to "whatabout" mask-wearing. Now he is regurgitating a word sales that makes no sense at all. He is just an idiot. Not much more analysis needed on this one.

4. The same guy who was a judge for years

And refused to convict a proven criminal , and enabled him to hurt this country even more. Cornyn has no business being in OUR government , and knew he was guilty and did it anyway. Vote him out, or he will screw us over again with health care, Social Security, and more.
