Tough-talking Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) is considered a hero to many conservatives across the country. His congressional interrogations of government corruptocrats are a thing of legend, of beauty, almost conservative pornography.
But Gowdy came under considerable fire on Saturday after he announced that he would be supporting pro-amnesty “Gang of Eight” leader Marco Rubio for president and would be joining Rubio on the campaign trail in the key state of Iowa next week.
“Marco is a rock solid conservative and a strong leader we can trust,” Trey Gowdy said, as being reported by Guy Benson of Townhall. “I look forward to campaigning in Iowa with him, and introducing my good friend to voters across the state,” Gowdy announced.
But as you can see from Trey Gowdy’s Facebook page, conservatives saw the endorsement of Marco Rubio, who fell out of favor in 2013 for joining leftist Democrats like Sens. Chuck Schumer and Republican establishment stooges like RINOs John McCain and Jeff Flake on the “Gang of Eight” bill to push amnesty for illegal aliens, Gowdy’s endorsement and agree to campaign for Marco Rubio is seen in a not so favorable light — to say the least.
A screenshot of the first several comments on Gowdy’s Facebook page, in order, looked like this:
In addition to Trey Gowdy being called out as a RINO (Republican-In-Name-Only) on Facebook, he was equally brutalized on Twitter, with conservatives showing outrage over his support of Rubio, who got elected with Tea Party support in the historic Tea Party wave of 2010.
Rubio ran on the promise of supporting border security and against amnesty and conservatives still haven’t forgiven his support for amnesty that followed, considered a major breach of a campaign promise of an issue that conservatives feel is very important for the security of the nation.
#Trump– Trey Gowdy. His only accomplishment was to make Hillary look good. Rubio will need him during those amnesty hearings.
