Trump is laughing at the latest unfortunate development for his GOP primary opponent, former South Carlina governor Mark Sanford.
Unearthed footage from 2009 shows just how humiliating Sanford’s affair was for the entire Republican party.
The GOP is at a crossroads, with the conflict between the old Never-Trump forces and new Trump Republicans. It’s a telling sign of the desperation of the Never Trumpers that they’re embracing such a fully-discredited politician as Mark Sanford.
Republicans like Sanford only impede Trump in his goal to clean Washington out.
Talking Points Memo reviews Sanford’s embarrassing past:
President Trump kicked off his week bright and early Monday morning by ridiculing former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (R) over an affair he had with an Argentinian woman.
…In the tweets, Trump raised an embarrassing past political saga involving Sanford. In 2009, Sanford disappeared for several days while meeting up with an Argentinian woman he was having an affair with. Sanford returned to the U.S. and gave an emotional interview admitting to the affair. Sanford’s staff and wife were reportedly unaware of his whereabouts and his staff told reporters at the time that he was hiking the Appalachian Trail.
If this is the best that Trump’s Republican opponents can come up with, he has nothing to worry about.
