Rep. Byron Donalds Mops Floor with Anderson Cooper’s Flying Monkeys
Representative Byron Donalds of Florida’s 19th district just mowed down the whole CNN bench of lackeys. This is Newt Gingrich-level shill-stopping!
I love how CNN identifies him: Rep Byron Donalds (R) Trump Supporter. Hahaha!
Wow. Rep. Byron Donalds fires back at CNN over the Trump town hall.

This is exactly how Republicans should roll the press. There’s something in the water in Florida — I haven’t been this impressed with somebody just resetting a whole room of mouthy idiots since that one Florida sheriff’s deputy took charge of an entire out-of-control IHOP.
I’ll add links to where I lamented the lack of this ability since Newt absquatulated the contest (although Trump does his own thing sorta similar). Donalds also doesn’t fall into Newt’s occasional trap of being provoked into changing the subject to the media itself.
This guy is good!Published in General
Yeah but to be fair, he was up against the intellectual junior varsity that is CNN.
Right. It wouldn’t be so easy if he were dealing with the heads of the Democrat party themselves, like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
Absquatulated, SAT word.
Thank you for the new vocabulary word of the day.
Byron Donalds is very impressive.
Absquatulated: Shrill sounds Middle-Eastern women softball catchers often make as they rise behind the plate holding their stomachs.

Absquatulate is a deeply silly word that means to make off with something or someone. Why say a thief ran away with your money when it’s much more fun to say he absquatulated with it?
I love this guy! What’s wonderful is that he wouldn’t allow them to interrupt them–and he shut them down! Woo-hoo! Go Byron! Every time I see him he’s articulate, clear and dominant. We need more like him!
well it is safe to say that CNN will never invite him back.
DeSantis for President.
Donalds for FL Governor.
In regards to the caption on the paused video, it’s frustrating that the Left and useless sacks of food like Chris Christie continue spouting that Trump would be giving Putin Ukraine if he was in charge. We don’t have to wonder what would be happening if Trump was in charge. He was in charge for four years and Putin didn’t go anywhere. Trump increased our energy production and weakened Putin.
Let’s repeat that for Con, Inc.:
“Useless sacks of food like Chris Christie!
CNN: “Let me ask you about the 2020 election!”
Also CNN: “Why do you keep talking about the 2020 election!?”
Some of us have sesquipedalian tendencies.
This is heresy, but I like to use it in a transitive sense, as with “decamp”. I know, I’m wrong. Call it style.
It *should* be transitive, as it refers to departing a location. Heisenberg, eat your heart out.
If I might interrupt with something important. Here is Byron Donalds detailing Biden Crime Family money laundering.
Useless sacks of USED food . . .
CNN flooding the zone with “lies!” “Big Lie” “disinformation”
Their “fact check” page made my blood boil from the dishonesty there.
Rep. Donalds did good in that situation, but we need a slicker answer – one that involves answering “yes” to the question about whether 2020 was rigged or not.
The voter panel from the link I provided is a great example. Most of them seemed to sense what the CNN guy was doing, that he was bullying them into accepting his insanely biased and NOT objective framing and then having to defend themselves or Donald Trump and many of them began simply opting out and sidestepping, even if they were highly uncomfortable with it. They couldn’t even present a unified front, a safety in numbers scenario there when they could have.
The reporter was slick too – naming a specific thing about the election – “stuffed ballots” in one Georgia county – and then following up with “none of it’s true”. Oh so slick. Yup, some claims ended up not being correct, some ended up being true. Most ended up being fishy but too late to even audit after the fact. And that’s just the fraud or irregularity type claims, let alone the executive and judicial legislating, let alone the unwillingness to uphold existing law or to act when action could have been taken. We all need to get familiar with the irregularities in WI, GA, AZ, and PA that were greater than the margin of victory.
Thanks. It’s a phrase new to me and I’m still figuring it out.
You can thank sci-fi writer Spider Robinson.
I really don’t understand why the Left and some on the Right feel that demanding an answer on “Do you think Trump won the 2020 election!” US such a powerful, “Checkmate”, gotcha question? They rigged the election, mass mailed ballots throughout the country with very little verification.
GOP spokesman and politicians: Just say that Biden received more ballots. Whether they were lawfully cast ballots with chain of custody, voter ID, uniform signature verification standards remains unlnown. What about it?
The man is imposing. I like him!
That’s exactly what I’m talking about. Short and accurate, without having to let them have their “lie” formulation.
“Joe Biden is the lawful President.”
This is where MAGA Feds and military officers should be. The certifications and the inauguration/swearing in made him the lawful President, regardless of what lawlessness prevailed to bring those about.
This is particularly important for those who are queasy about following “orders” from this drained sac. He does have the authority.
“‘Lawful?’” she says, “Did he win legitimately or not?”
“Well, I didn’t count every vote, did you? So this is where we put some faith in the system.” You don’t have to say which part.
Also nice answer.
That CNN panel of Trump voters needs to learn it. Should be a common phrasing by now. Although I’d want some language about the margin of victory being less than the questionable or verifiable irregularities.
Those same midgets somehow tower over most of our Republican overlords.
That’s because they don’t take the fight to them like Rep. Donalds.
