President Trump responds to GOP primary challengers with signature aplomb


President Trump is nothing, if not bombastic.

The Commander in Chief has been a firebrand for the republican party during his time in office, lashing out at those who cause him grief in such a way that it could reshape the landscape of American political culture for good.  His supporters love him for it, and his detractors often find themselves in states of despair because of it.

Now, as two, possibly three men appear ready to challenge the incumbent President in the 2020 primaries, Trump is responding as only he could.

In a pair of tweets Tuesday, the president referred to having “Three Stooges running against me.”

“One is ‘Mr. Appalachian Trail’ who was actually in Argentina for bad reasons,” Trump continued.

A second tweet reads: “….Another is a one-time BAD Congressman from Illinois who lost in his second term by a landslide, then failed in radio. The third is a man who couldn’t stand up straight while receiving an award. I should be able to take them!”

His tweets Tuesday night refer to former Rep. Mark Sanford, R-S.C., who appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press recently  to say he is considering a primary challenge to Trump but who has not yet officially announced he is running for president; to former  Rep. Joe Walsh, R-Ill., who announced on Sunday he is running against Trump for the 2020 GOP nomination; and to Bill Weld, a former GOP governor of Massachusetts, who is also challenging Trump in the GOP primaries.

His attack on Sanford, with the “Appalachian Trail” line, refers to the South Carolina Rep’s affair with an Argentinian mistress, whom he visited after telling his friends and family that he was hiking the famous east coast trail.
