(Mar-a-Lago, FL) With the 2022 elections looming, GOP candidates are eager to win former President Trump’s favor given his continued popularity with the party base. But they were all disappointed today when Trump revealed who his favorite Republican was.
“There’s no question. It has to be Joe Manchin.”
Though many thought he would spring for avid Trump sycophants Marjorie Tayor Greene, Matt Gaetz, or Lauren Boebert, Trump said his top choice was firmly based on who comes through for him at the end of the day.
“They may talk the talk, but only Joe Manchin repeatedly sticks it to the Dems and works tirelessly to ensure my vision of America as a brutal oligarchy becomes a reality.”
The former President also compared Manchin favorably to Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell.
“Mitch has on occasion caved under pressure to the liberal agenda that thinks improving life for all Americans is a good idea. You don’t see Joe Manchin doing that!”
Trump said he felt a person bond with Manchin given that they both have children with similar interests.
“The way his privileged daughter jacked up the price of Epi-Pens puts my offspring to shame, and they are no slouches when it comes to gouging the average American for their own personal gain!”
