John Cornyn was bad for Texas long before Donald Trump was elected. Cornyn was cheerfully selling out Texas to his rich backers in the oil and gas industry all those years, pretending to have some (so-called) conservative principles in his role as senior Senator from the great state of Texas. But the arrival of the reality-TV clown showin Washington, D.C. showed us where Cornyn’s true loyalty lies: with preserving his own power.
How else can you explain such an influential member of the majority Republican Senate doing so little, for so few? How else to understand his total support of the buffoon in the White House? Think of every outrageous thing that Trump has said and done. Now think of the U.S. Senate, and it’s intended role as a check on Presidential power. Yet with John Cornyn’s “leadership” it’s been nothing but a rubber stamp on every terrible action Trump has taken, undercutting America in every imaginable way.
It’s time to fire John Cornyn.
