A few weeks back, Paul Gosar tweeted an anime video where he killed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. At nearly any other time in American history, his own party would have punished him. Instead, the GOP has circled the wagons to protect the Arizona Rep.
A vote was taken yesterday and the majority Democrat House or Representatives censured Gosar. Today, Donald Trump issued a statement in support of the Republican congressman.
The former president wrote:
“Congressman Paul Gosar has been a loyal supporter of our America First agenda, and even more importantly, Paul is a Congressman who is highly respected in Arizona, strong on Crime, Borders, our Military, and our Veterans. He continually fights for Lower Taxes, Less Regulations, and our great, but under siege, Second Amendment. Paul Gosar has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”

The Ocasio-Cortez situation was just one of many controversies for Gosar. The former dentist is deeply disliked by his brothers and sisters who made a campaign commercial against him. Gosar also gave a speech at an event hosted by white supremacist Nick Fuentes.
