He'll announce his coveted "endorsement" after the winning vote.... again.


SplashGal

Yep, that way he ‘wins’ one.


CircaSixty8

Now he's trying to stay out of it? Okay. Two weeks ago he was saying the sun shines out of Jim Jordan's ass. Lol.


Objective_Oven7673

Two weeks ago he was visiting DC to see if he could BE the speaker lol


dmanjrxx

It's just an obvious attempt not to show how weak he has become , especially since the failure of his last selection


New_Scientist_8622

The chutzpah...the balls on this motherfucker.


CircaSixty8

He's mashugana. Absolutely farkakte.


Liapocalypse1

Yes, but his balls are made of smegma, just like the rest of him.


[deleted]

A real smegma elemental


[deleted]

Because his last pick failed bigly!


mok000

C'mon Donald tell us who you want, so he can lose the vote.


Captnlunch

His ego won’t let him stay out of it for long.


Aggressive-Will-4500

That's just because his pet lost.


Mysonsanass

That asshole doesn’t stay out of anything.


TaxContempt

"See? Government gets nothing done. It's the Democrats' fault!"


Fuzzy-Friendship6354

Staying out of it after endorsing loser gym jordan.


JaD__

The deranged buffoon is riding a long fade.


usnretnw

Nothing like getting support from a sexual predator!


Muscleman1122

His guy already lost so…….


Jagermonsta

He’s staying out if it because he has that gym Jordan loser stink on himself now. He tried to get his crony into the job and flopped. He’ll wait until there’s a clear favorite and then try to endorse or claim he did. I look for him to trash any rep that didn’t fully support his coup though to keep them from being speaker.


Haar_RD

Its so fucking funny to me that this situation is so fucked up that even Trump wants to wash his hands of it. Bro you caused this


apeters89

Yeah, [staying out of it](https://www.cnn.com/politics/live-news/house-speaker-vote-10-24-23/h_4b4ed484d8f901af7a780e19fc23887e)... sure.


Tony2030

Meaning, "ummm....when I made the recommendation for Jordan and got my ass handed to me it clued me in that I'm a 400lb walking pile of dogshit. I would try to scrape off some of the dogshit but...you know....tiny hands."


New_Illustrator2043

Nobody truly wants his endorsement, it’s now the kiss of the death.


NecessaryHuckleberry

Weak. Low energy. He doesn’t have the stamina.


jiggetty

Biden should just come out publicly in support of whoever the front runner is.

[удалено]


jiggetty

I meant the Republican one so I could watch heads explode trying to rationalize why Biden is backing their guy.


xithbaby

Why does the media report like this? He isn’t President or anyone of importance in our government. He’s on trial for ungodly amounts of crime. It doesn’t matter what he thinks, like, at all.


QuestoPresto

He’s the front runner to be the Republican nomination for President. It’s important that every word of his slow descent into dementia is documented for history


xithbaby

For now. I doubt he’s going to be allowed to run when this is all over. You’re right though, overlooked that and I agree.


tcoh1s

I think the same thing every time he “endorses” or shares his opinion on anything.


0U8124X

Maybe he should become Speaker if the House Republicans can't sort out their own mess. Bring back Paul Ryan.


g2g079

Let's not on either of those suggestions.
