IL’s GOP Congressman Kinzinger blasts Trump tweet as “beyond repugnant”

23

CHANNAHON – Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) represents a conservative part of Illinois, but doesn't hesitate to publicly criticize President Trump as he sees fit. 

Trump's tweet referred to a comment made on Fox News Sunday morning by the pastor of the First Baptist Church of Dallas, Robert Jeffress. Jeffress used strong language during an interview in which he suggested a "civil war-like fracture" could be created if Congressional Democrats were successful in impeaching President Trump. The President drew attention to Jeffress' comments via Twitter after the interview.

Congressman Kinzinger said Trump's tweet was "beyond repugnant." For reminders, here's some "repugnant" synonyms: abhorrent, abominable, appalling, awful, disgusting, distasteful, dreadful, evil, foul, fulsome, gross, hideous, horrendous, horrible, horrid, loathsome, nasty, nauseating, nauseous, noisome, noxious, obnoxious, obscene, odious, offensive, rancid, repellent (also repellant), repulsive, revolting, scandalous, shocking, sickening, ugly – via Merriam-Webster.

  1. Adam appears to be a Rino and a never Trumper
    Is he focused on fundraising now with democrats?
    I guess he wants a primary challenge.
    I hope he thought this through as he probably will not be welcomed at Illinois Republican events now and I imagine his campaign will struggle,
    Not sure of his game. Btw, I support my President, Donald J Trump.

  2. Every effort must be made to remove Kinginger from office. It is beyond belief that Kinginger doesn’t realize that we are in a war here in the U.S. with those who wish to remove Trump form office by any means possible, to be replaced by globalism and Socialism. Trump is being lied about and smeared with falsehood. As an innocent person he has a right to defend himself against the evil ones who have sold their souls too the devil.

  3. so you can have your fake evangelical white supremacy ?
    If white supremacy is fake, why would she want it? LOL…. your words and hate serve only to stultify you!
    If you want to talk about fake, let’s talk about the “born that way” (fake, fake, fake) claim by the lying left.
    WASHINGTON, D.C., September 3, 2019 (Mercatornet) – The findings of a recently published study explode the false narrative that being “gay” is an innate condition that is controlled or largely compelled by one’s genetic makeup. Rebutting decades of search by LGBT scientists for a “gay gene,” the study’s first author flatly concludes “it will be basically impossible to predict one’s sexual activity or orientation from genetics.”

  4. Nancy, because of the “you’re a disgrace to this country.” comment. I think less of you, you should sue that commenter for libel. Your reputation has been damaged.

  5. How do we get rid of this man? Please, Mr. President, announce YOUR support of primary challengers right now against them all. The window is getting smaller and smaller to primary this idiot next spring. Petitions have to be circulated SOON in this corrupt state.

  6. I should sue the one who called me “a disgrace to this nation?” I know I’m not; it’s the name caller who is. As I said as a youngster more than 75 years ago: Sticks and stone will break my bones, but name will never hurt me.”

  7. oh be quiet… you libel and slander every single day you evangelical BULLY. The TRUTH: you support a corrupted President who has abused his power. You only support him because of one issue. The fetus you pretend to love until its born … the country could burn around you for all you care… and everybody know the fetus “moral” thing is a FAKE lie when you support TRUMP. you hid white supremacy behind the bible.. fake! end of discussion. go home hypocrite bully.

  8. I doubt you’re from Texas or a dad.
    You’ve obviously been a product of our failed public schools. Dear heavens, LEARN TO TYPE AND SPELL!!!!
    The country is burning and we are losing our Republic to a coup and all you care about is sacrificing more babies at the altar of your god, the state.
    I’ll bet you couldn’t find the 10 Commandments with a search engine.
    Good riddance.

  9. NO I DON’T LIBEL AND SLANDER EVERYDAY, I CAN’T HELP IT YOU DON’T LIKE OUR CONSTITUTIONALLY PROTECTED RELIGIOUS FREEDOMS. I’D BE REAL CAREFUL MAKING STATEMENTS YOU CAN’T PROVE. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT HATER? STANDING UP FOR THE CONSTITUTION (THE LAW)AND OUR RIGHTS IS NOT BULLYING SO SHUT YOUR MOUTH.
    AND I HAVE TO STAND UP FOR THE 61 MILLION ABORTED BABIES SINCE 1973, BECAUSE THEY CAN’T.
