GOP Chair-Elect in Texas Pledges to Out Closeted Anti-Gay Republican Hypocrites

Robert Morrow: ‘I Just Love Exposing These Sexual Hypocrites in the Republican Party, Especially These Closeted Homosexuals’

The chair-elect of the county Republican Party in Austin, Texas, is vowing to out Republican politicians who portray themselves as Christian conservatives but are in fact closeted homosexuals. 

Last week, we told you how conspiracy theorist Robert Morrow — who believes Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush are all either gay or bisexual — won his race for Republican Party chair in Travis County, which is home to the state capital. Morrow’s extremely offensive language has drawn national attention and led the Travis County GOP to denounce him.

In a subsequent interview with Time Warner Cable News, Morrow said he won’t refrain from criticizing other Republicans even though he’ll be a GOP official after taking office in June.   

“If they’re doing things wrong politically, they’ll hear about it from me, and if they have a wildly hypocritical sexual life, especially if they’re a married man and if it involves adultery with strippers, hookers and gay prostitutes,” Morrow said. “I just love exposing these sexual hypocrites in the Republican Party, especially these closeted homosexuals. … If you find out a politician is secretly a gay guy, and he’s religious right on the outside, we have a problem there. The lying and the hypocrisy are the biggest ones.”

Morrow told TWC News’ Stef Manisero he believes both President George W. Bush and his senior adviser Karl Rove are closeted homosexuals. He pointed to the case of Jeff Gannon, the conservative columnist who covered the White House from 2003-05 and was later outed as a former gay escort. 

“You need to Google a picture of George W. Bush kissing the bald head of Jeff Gannon, who’s a bald-headed gay prostitute who was posing as a journalist in the White House press corps,” Morrow said. “It makes me wonder if Karl Rove got him that journalist’s pass. It makes me wonder if Jeff Gannon was having sex with Karl Rove. Jeff Gannon was a gay prostitute who was known for being a top. Do you know what a top is, and a bottom? Jeff Gannon was a top, and he was running around the Bush White House like he was a stray cat.” 

Asked by Manisero why Bush or Rove having a gay relationship would be relevant, Morrow explained that they based their re-election strategy in 2004 on getting anti-gay marriage amendments on the ballot in dozens of states. 

“It was one of their biggest pieces to energize the conservative Christian base, who thinks that George Bush is a Jesus-loving conservative Christian man who doesn’t cheat on his wife, so they’re epic sexual hypocrites,” Morrow said. 

He also repeated his claim that Hillary Clinton and former Texas Gov. Rick Perry are “rampaging bisexual adulterers,” and that George H.W. Bush was a “longtime homosexual pedophile.”

“I think George W. Bush is like Rick Perry. Both of them are closeted homosexuals,” Morrow said. “That’s my personal opinion, OK? And yet they run around with Bibles, telling everybody how Christian they are and how religious they are. You know, there are a lot of homosexuals in Austin, Texas, who can tell you what a queer Rick Perry is. And there are a certain amount who can tell you about George W. Bush and also George Herbert Walker Bush.”

Morrow even endorsed a version of the theory espoused by Texas state school board candidate Mary Lou Bruner, who claims Obama has “a soft spot for homosexuals” because he worked as a male prostitute to support a drug addiction in his 20s. 

“I think Barack Obama is a gay man who got married,” Morrow said. “I believe, when he was a state senator, I totally believe … that he was having a blow job and smoking crack while he was being sucked by a gay prostitute.” 

Asked about his homophobic, racist, sexist and otherwise lewd posts on social media, Morrow defended them, saying it’s his way of holding politicians accountable. 

“I’ll say something like, ‘Do you think Hillary Clinton would swallow your cum, or would it be more of a Lorena Bobbitt-type situation?’ And that’s my way of expressing my utter contempt and hostility and dislike for Hillary Clinton,” he said. 

On Tuesday, the Travis County GOP’s executive committee passed a resolution condemning Morrow’s use of vulgar language and saying his “profane and slanderous” comments don’t represent the party, according to The Austin Statesman. Current party offiicials are looking into ways to prevent Morrow from taking office or limit his power if he does, but under Texas law, Morrow would have to commit a felony or not show up to meetings to be removed.  

“They have no legal recourse, and they are neutered gerbils, and the people of Travis County have spoken as to my candidacy,” Morrow told The Statesman.

In the TWC News interview, Morrow acknowledged that he won the race mainly because his name appeared first on the ballot and people don’t pay attention to party chair races. He also called himself “the nation’s No. 1 anti-Clinton activist,” but said his true passion is the JFK assassination, adding he’s 100 percent sure Lyndon B. Johnson and the CIA killed him. 

“I just hope to promote flushing the commode on the corroded rectum of American politics,” he told Manisero. “I’m like Donald Trump on steroids, sweetheart, so get ready to have some fun reading my Twitter feed.”

Santos Recuses Himself From Committees Amid Possible Criminal Investigation

Published

on

Embattled freshman U.S. Rep. George Santos (R-NY), in what is the first time he has taken any steps to acknowledge the depths of political and now possibly criminal challenges he faces, says he will recuse himself from his committee assignments until his ethics issues have been resolved.

Santos also told his Republican colleagues of his plans on Tuesday, NBC News reports. Santos is on the Science and Small Business committees.

The Daily Beast’s Roger Sollenberger, who has provided extensive reporting on the Republican frequently called a “serial liar,” adds that the Santos’ announcement came after a meeting with Speaker Kevin McCarthy.

“With all signs pointing to an active federal criminal investigation into his campaign finance activity, Santos has ‘voluntarily’ declined—after meeting last night with Kevin McCarthy—to stay off of committees, as Republicans try to sideline Ilhan Omar,” Sollenberger reports.

Sollenberger broke the news that Santos, or his campaign, amended his FEC filing to indicate $625,000 in “personal” loans to his campaign were not actually from his personal funds.

Republicans are trying to keep U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), one of their regular, prime targets, from taking her seat on the Foreign Affairs Committee. Speaker McCarthy has already blocked Democratic Congressmen Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell from the House Intelligence Committee, invoking his ability to do so because it is a Select committee and subject to the Speaker’s decisions.

2024 Fundraising Fail: Trump Took in Less Money After Declaring Run for President Than Before

Published

on

Donald Trump, the candidate who in 2015 vowed he would self-fund his presidential campaign, only to turn his White House run into a never-ending fundraising operation, is having trouble raising money.

“I don’t need anybody’s money,” Trump said when he launched his campaign in June of 2015 – despite quietly accepting over $14 million in the months after.

The ex-president, under numerous criminal investigations and facing civil court cases, now is “strapped for campaign cash,” NBC News reveals in an exclusive report. The embattled and disgraced one-term president who remains his party’s top choice, took in less money in the six weeks after he officially launched his third attempt to enter the Oval Office than he did in the six weeks before his mid-November announcement.

Trump is now revamping his fundraising machine and hiring a new company, Campaign Inbox, “to solicit the small-dollar donor set.”

The former president had built a massive fundraising database but decided to launch in November, which puzzled many experts. Some believe he did so in an attempt to evade any possible Dept. of Justice prosecutions. Even as far back as July those who know Trump predicted he would not only run for president again but launch his campaign early – to try to escape justice.

All this points to Trump returning to Facebook, if only to revive his “cash-strapped” campaign.

“Almost 50% of Republican donors log in to Facebook every single day,”Republican digital fundraising consultant Eric Wilson told NBC News, citing data from a survey connected to a nonprofit group he runs. “So if you are not able to reach those donors, you’re just at a huge fundraising disadvantage.”

‘Ran a Bribery Center Blocks From the White House’: Comer Mocked for Claiming No Evidence of Trump Influence Peddling

Published

on

The powerful Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, James  Comer (R-KY) is being highly mocked after declaring he will investigate President Joe Biden for “influence peddling” despite admitting there’s little if any evidence President Biden has engaged in influence peddling.

When pressed, he pointed to Biden’s classified documents and one alleged email from Hunter Biden’s laptop.

But when pressed again by a frustrated CNN host, asking why he’s not investigating ex-president Donald Trump, he couldn’t offer a valid reason, except to claim there no evidence of it.

Some were quick to point out the Trump’s tenure in the White House was filled with alleged influence peddling operations.

Here’s Chairman Comer with CNN’s Pamela Brown on Sunday. While the transcript is a bit simplified, it’s not far off.

“What’s different with Joe Biden is we’re investigating the Biden family for influence peddling,” Comer said on CNN Sunday evening. “We have a strong suspicion that people around Joe Biden, mainly in his family, have been peddling access to the Biden family, with our adversaries around the world, and when we find out that they have multiple classified documents scattered throughout multiple residences and office buildings across the East Coast, then this raises a huge red flag for us. We want to make sure that those documents in the possession of Joe Biden weren’t somehow sent to our adversaries and didn’t somehow compromise our national security.”

CNN’s Pamela Brown pushed back.

“But you’ve also talked about how you worried about the same situation with the Trump family. Trump had 300-plus documents at Mar-a-Lago, why don’t you have that same concern?” Brown asked. “I mean, there are visitors going in and out of Mar-a-Lago from different countries, including China, there’s been a Chinese spy who was arrested at Mar-a-Lago and it was in an unsecure location at Mar-a-Lago. So would you apply that same concern evenly across the board?

Comer was unimpressed with the facts she presented.

“If someone can show me evidence that there was influence peddling with those classified documents that were in the possession of President Trump, then we would certainly expect it.”

His defense for the Chinese spy? It’s a public place – making all the more dangerous for unsecured classified documents.

“Do you have evidence of influence peddling with the classified documents that was for Biden?” Brown asked. “It sounds like you don’t – you’re looking into it, but why wouldn’t you look into it in the same way for Trump?”

“We have evidence that the Biden family has been very cozy with people from the Chinese Communist Party. We have evidence that Hunter Biden was receiving payments that were that were linked directly to the Chinese Communist Party through those Chinese energy companies. We’re very concerned about all the money connected to Ukraine.”

“How is that connected to classified documents?” Brown again pushed.

“We don’t know we want to look. We see there’s one email that’s been identified that is suspicious that we want to look into. We want to make sure that there’s one email that was on Hunter Biden’s laptop wasn’t one of the classified documents. So I think there’s ample reason to be concerned.”

Comer revealed he has no evidence against President Biden or the Biden family.

Rep. Jimmy Gomez (D-CA) called it a “a politically-driven fishing expedition.”

“Republican hypocrisy on full display,” Gomez tweeted in response. “How can you launch an investigation without any evidence? This is a politically-driven fishing expedition — full stop. Lots of political stunts, not a lot of problem-solving.”

But, as several people noted, there is plenty of apparent evidence against Donald Trump.

HuffPost White House correspondent S.V. Dáte called Comer out: “Trump ran a bribery center five blocks from The White House,” he shouted, referring to the Trump D.C. Hotel, while tweeting in all-caps.

“Just a stunning dereliction of duty,” charged Robert Maguire, the research director for Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). “Trump brought in tens of millions of dollars as president from businesses he refused to divest, which were used by special interests and foreign governments to enrich him while currying favor with him and his administration.”

Telling Chairman Comer he is “happy to chat,” Mother Jones’ David Corn tweeted, “I know of 2 billion reasons Comer and the House Republicans should look at the Trump family regarding influence peddling and overseas dealings.”

Corn is likely referring to the $2 billion “investment” Trump son-in-law and senior White House Advisor Jared Kushner received.

“Six months after leaving the White House,” The New York Times reported last April, “Jared Kushner secured a $2 billion investment from a fund led by the Saudi crown prince, a close ally during the Trump administration, despite objections from the fund’s advisers about the merits of the deal.”

MSNBC’s Steve Benen likened Comer’s interview to “watching a snake eat its own tail.” Benen also pointed to Comer’s second attempt, Monday morning, which did not go well.

Bloomberg’s Emily Wilkins, the Vice President of the National Press Club, apparently mistakenly, said to Comer: “So you are asking questions about Trump.”

He made clear he is not.
