Governor Bryant backs Trump

Gov. Phil Bryant released the following statement after Sen. Ted Cruz suspended his presidential campaign:

"Tonight, Sen. Ted Cruz ended his hard-fought run for the Republican nomination for president. I congratulate him on his effort. I believe he is a true patriot and admire his stand. He will continue his conservative mission for a better America. We now turn our attention to the Republican nominee, Donald Trump, and the election in November. I will support Donald Trump to stop Hillary Clinton from becoming president of these United States. He now has the responsibility and certainly the ability to unite this Grand Old Party and go on to victory. As a conservative, I will find common cause in this election because the possibility of a Clinton victory is unacceptable. We now join together."

Translate to "I will hold my nose and endorse Trump."

Since Trump is the only republican left in the race there isn't anyone left to support if you are a republican.

The Donald should demand the MSGOP should fire Noseff today and hire Mitch Tyner as the State Chair. It's been funny watching all the other clowns like Phil Bryant and his followers jump from Cruz to Trump so quick. What would be funny is if Donald said thanks but no thanks Philly go away and your FIRED!

I just hope that we can find a non politician to support for guv and lt. guv in the 'sip come election time. I'm sick and tired of the career politician

A dead cat Is preferable to Hillary, in all likelihood the most corrupt serious candidate for President in my lifetime, which goes back to Eisenhower. I'm not a fan of Trump, but the prospect of Hillary leaves me little choice. What other candidate can claim the number of scandals attached to her name? Getting fired for unethical conduct while working for the Watergate Committee, Whitewater, Rose Law Firm billing records inexplicably showing up in the Whitehouse, taking Whitehouse property on her exit, the Whitehouse Travel Office firings, Benghazi debacle and lies (but "what does it matter?), illegal use of unsecured communications, getting money from foreign governments for her foundation while Secretary of State, giving secret speeches for hundreds of thousands of dollars to Wall Street while claiming to be tough on Wall Street (What was in those speeches that the public can't know about?). Conviction of crimes or not, the smell of corruption around her is overpowering. The dead cat smells better.

Exactly, 3:42. Some of these clowns would suffer greatly if the voters really got tired of electing "politicians." Bryant is incompetent to be anything else.

Harper and Taggart are wailing in despair. Harper is attached to the Beltway establishment at the hip. After Trump wins we'll send Harper to the showers in 2018. Along with Wicker.

The Republicans have done what the Democrats did eight years ago and have nominated their least qualified candidate.

Too bad Trump can't fire Feel. I'm sure he's thrilled to have this goober's endorsement.

Anonymous said...

3:46, the democrats are doing their best to do it again. Not only are they trying to nominate the least qualified but also the most dishonest.

Anonymous said...

3:46 kinda have the cart crossing the finish line when its horse isn't even connected yet. Before you start kicking people to the curb with your replacements, lets see how your boy does in November. Once he leads us to having four more years of an Obama/Clinton administration, you won't be in much position to start telling who you think would be the best for us in 2018 and 2019.

Anonymous said...

Trump's going to cut Mississippi off the 'sugar teat' of government money. Make us actually pay more to the federal government than we get back. We can't balance the budget and still make tax cuts and give corporate welfare? What kind of Conservative is that?

Anonymous said...

Bryant and Pallazio really went way out on a limb today didn't they?

So, who is more honest? Hillary or Trump?

Trump would win that hands down. Hillary has been lying to people as long as Bill has been raping other women.

Killary! We have not forgotten about Benghazi!!! Needs to be sitting in a prison cell. Hail TRUMP!!!

Anonymous said...

Hillary has never been popular...even before she was accused of doing anything illegal.

Wonder why that is?

You would think staying with Bill would be what "christians" would want....but no. These "christians" wanted her to leave him...divorce. Whats that about?

Is it possible she is hated because she is an ambitious intelligent female? Is that possible?

Ive tried to like her. I think divided government is best so Im trying like hell to like her....but man it is hard as hell to find one redeeming quality about this person.

Trump is gonna be the next President......shes just not viable.

Anonymous said...

Please don't let that guy talk about Bill Clintons wee wee in this post like he did in a previous post...........I can't scrub that image from my mind

And, 3:43, don't forget her choice for Surgeon General: Dr. Maxine ???. Name escapes me but advocating teaching kindergartners to masturbate I can't forget.

Feel's support of Drumpf is consistent with his record as Guv. He is a follower not a leader. But, he made a fine deputy.

Anonymous said...

Three more years of Feel. I'm not sure I can bear it. Is there any aspect of the man that could be called progressive, thoughtful or forward looking, politically courageous, or having an earnest eye toward our economic future? After he signed 1523 embarrasing us all before the entire nation I have only doubts. I am so disappointed in him along with the other Republican leaders. We stand greatly embarrassed once again.

Anonymous said...

Feel's endorsement of Trump is about as important as a used piece of gum stuck on the bottom of a shoe. I can't decide which is more embarrassing-Feel or Trump. If you listen closely to what Trump says-there's NO substance. He just spews crap like a 3rd grader on the playground. Heck, that's an insult to 3rd graders. He will bankrupt our country, just like he's bankrupted himself. Feel is absolutely the worst gov in my lifetime. He's an embarrassment to every Mississippian. The Republicans can certainly pick winners!

Early To Rise said...

9:42 - Please give an example of how 'leadership' would announce a different endorsement since there is only one from which to choose.

All the governor is saying is that he's behind the eventual nominee. Unlike many of you panty-wasters who are chortling in your beer that you won't vote.

Anonymous said...

Phil had a chance to show leadership, with no risk. Imagine if the lame duck governor had said, "I have been a Republican all my life, but some things transcend party. Donald Trump is unfit to hold the office of president, so I can not I good conscience support him."

The buffoon will carry MS regardless. No downside for Phil.

But he's - as someone pointed out - a follower, not a leader.

The surgeon general in question was Jocelyn Elders. Wanted to teach kids to beat off in school & give hookers free gubmint Norplant.

She might be a good running mate for Trump; all he'd have to do is float her name & his legions of Trumptards would hail her as their new queen.

Because they're retards.

Anonymous said...

I shouldn't be, but am constantly amazed by the stupidity that the comments on this site generate. 3:43, if you've been around since Eisenhower, then presumably you've heard of Richard Nixon. He resigned so he wouldn't be impeached, by the way. Also, there is the matter of the Iran-contra affair. It's absolutely amazing to me the selective memory many on this site employ. 3:43 nailed all the Infowars/Glen Beck/Fox Hillary tropes, of which she was found to have committed no wrongdoing (the fired from Watergate must have been hard to find as only a couple of total loons bought that one), yet the actual problems with her, that she, like her husband, his successor and W's, absolute love of Wall Street, get a pass, because that's a plus in the eyes of propaganda masters. We hear Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi!!!!!! over and over and despite thousands of hours of hearings. 3.5 years later, zip, zilch zero. 220 Marines and 21 others killed in Beirut in Oct. 1983. 18 months later, a report is issued that actually improved security. I guess 3:43 forgot that as well.

You folks that think Trump can win have lost your mind. His zealots are just that. They'll vote for him, but most with a brain would have figured out after 08 and 12 that relying almost entirely on white male votes to win a presidential election, is a losing strategy. Now, you've tripled down on it.

Anonymous said...

7:57 -- his followers remind me a lot of Obama's base: room-temperature IQs, and complete obliviousness to facts, law, policy issues and basic logic. But they can be whipped into a frenzy with their cult leader's appeal to raw emotion.

Like Obama voters, just white trash retards instead of minorities.

Anonymous said...

Is this the best the U.S. can come up with for president? No wonder we are dropping like a rock.
Trump is an unknown as far as politics but he isn't a life long politician and that is a big plus. Hillary is well known in politics. How anyone could vote for her is just a sign of how low the U.S. has dropped.

Damn I love the smell of sanctimony in the morning. 7:57 and 8:36, can we kiss your feet?

Golf Clap said...

8:36; In the event that you are right, you have just announced the election results in Trump's favor. Thank you for your concession speech.

Anonymous said...

8:36 here.

Let's see. Trump is a lifelong Democrat and pro-abortion. His supporters don't care.

Trump embraced the endorsement of a convicted rapist in the city where the rape took place. He impugned the rape victim. His supporters don't care.

Trump called Ben Carson a pedophile and said Ted Cruz's dad killed Kennedy. His supporters don't care.

He doesn't know what the Nuclear Triad is. His supporters don't care and want him to have the launch codes.

He is a bully, mysogynist and a serial philanderer. His supporters don't care.

He says he loves the "poorly educated," and likes to surround himself with those of lesser intellect, because it makes him feel better. His supporters don't care.

He's a draft dodger. His supporters don't care.

Four bankruptcies; they don't care.

Trump could come out in favor of having sex with little boys, renounce Christ, and shout "Hail Satan!" His supporters won't give a damn.

Be cause "he fights." Because "he's not a politician." Because they're angry and "he'll shake things up and make America great again."

So, yes. His supporters are collectively as smart as the Obama phone woman.

Anonymous said...

11:08, you could be describing the Clintons also.
Look at all of the women Bill has raped. Look at the way Hillary defends his hobby.
The Clintons have been sucking on the govt. teat all of their lives.
Bill Clinton is a draft dodger.
The Clintons loves the minorities because they can fool them so easily.
Bill Clinton never had a real job in his life.
The Clintons never owned a home until the govt. bought them one.
The Clintons stole from the white house and had to be forced to bring some of the stuff back.
Bill is the leading serial philanderer of all time.

Anonymous said...

Oh, this just in.

Trump's finance director is a Goldman Sachs fund manager who's given to 3x times as many Democrats as Republicans. And he worked for George Soros.

His supporters won't care.

Now if Cruz or Rubio or Jeb Bush had done such a thing.....

But that's different. Those are ESTABLISHMENT guys. Unlike John Boehner, who endorsed Trump.

Yeah. I could be describing the Clintons. I'm describing the supporters of the nominee of what used to be my party.

Looking back through all the above posts I'm suddenly reminded of who the democrats in Mississippi recently ran for the office of Governor. And they have the balls to come on here and offer an analysis of any other candidate for office? Spare me please.

"East bound and down, loaded up and truckin'......."

Anonymous said...

7:49, Just my opinion but the person democrats put up for governor is much better than the one they will put up for president.

Anonymous said...

7:49 - wouldn't call the trucker who the Dems 'put up' for governor. He ended up being their candidate just like Trump has ended up being ours. The lady the Dems 'put up' to ran came in third - to someone they, nor anybody else, had met.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
