Former President Donald Trump endorsed two New York Democrats; Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and Attorney Daniel Goldman in a series of ironic online posts on Wednesday, setting off the social media world.
“A vote for Carolyn Maloney in NY-12 is a vote for the future!” Trump posted to his Truth Social. “She is a kind and wonderful person, who has always said terrific things about me, and will support me no matter what I do, just as I supported her very early on. She begged for a check with no quid pro quo, and I gave it to her. In fact, I gave her many.”
Maloney is running in a contested primary for New York’s 12th Congressional district — and she is competing against notorious incumbent Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), who also received a back-handed endorsement from Trump.
“On the other hand, Jerry Nadler is likewise a hard driving man of the people, whose energy and attention to detail is unlike anyone else in Congress,” Trump continued. “He is high energy, sharp, quick-witted, and bright. You can’t go wrong with either, but Carolyn Maloney is the better man. She will lead our Country into a very GREEN and prosperous future. Carolyn has my Complete and Total Endorsement, she will never let our Conservative Movement down!”
The 45th president also took time to “endorse” Goldman, an attorney, who served as majority counsel during the House’s first impeachment inquiry into Trump. Goldman is running as a Democrat in New York’s 10th Congressional district.
“Lawyer Dan Goldman is running for Congress, NY-10, and it is my great honor to Strongly Endorse him. I do this not because of the fact that he headed up the Impeachment Committee and lost,” he added. “But because he was honorable, fair, and highly intelligent. While it was my honor to beat him, and beat him badly, Dan Goldman has a wonderful future ahead.”
Trump continued, “He will be very compassionate and compromising to those within the Republican Party, and will do everything possible to make sure they have a fair chance at winning against the Radical Left Democrats, who he knows are destroying our Country.”
In typical Trump fashion, he had to throw in one last jab at Goldman to close out his comical endorsement.
“I would like to thank Dan for fighting so hard for America, and for working so tirelessly to stop ‘Trump.’ He was not easy to beat, but winning against him made me realize just how very talented I am!” he wrote.
These posts demonstrate what the nation already knows — Trump is as competent and hilarious as ever, which is more than most can say for Joe Biden. We wish we could say the same about the current White House occupant but for now all we’ll say is: 2024 can’t come soon enough.
