Donald Trump BLASTS Trey Gowdy: Who Do You Agree With?

Donald Trump BLASTS Trey Gowdy: Who Do You Agree With?

2016 GOP Presidential frontrunner Donald Trump blasted popular South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy for his handling of the October Benghazi hearing on Sunday as rumors surfaced that Gowdy will soon endorse Trump’s opponent in the race for the White House, Marco Rubio.

Trump said he hope Gowdy “does a lot better for Marco than he did with the Benghazi hearings.”

According to The Hill:

“Donald Trump says Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), who is expected to endorse Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) for president this week, was a “total disaster” as chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

“I hope [Gowdy] does a better job than he did, frankly, at the Benghazi hearings, because they were a total disaster,” Trump said Sunday morning on “Fox and Friends,” according to the Washington Examiner.

Gowdy presided over the testimony of Hillary Clinton, who was secretary of State at the time of the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.

The hearing was widely regarded as a victory for the Democratic primary front-runner.

“[Gowdy] did not win those hearings,” Trump said. “It was not good for Republicans and for the country.”

“I hope he does a lot better for Marco than he did with the Benghazi hearings,” he added.”

  1. Were the hearings a success? I really like Trey, but if they weren’t an absolute success, then they were a dismal failure. Where is Hillary today?

    • OUT CONNING THE MASSES . FREE AS A BIRD THAT IS UR ANSWER / DON’T VOTE FOR ANY ELITE D C EMBEDDED 3 RING CIRCUS CLOWNS / THAT WOULD BE A WASTE !

    • Rino Gowdy was bought and paid to let Hillary off, now wonder how much more he got from Rubio! I hope Trump Triumphs and finds evidence to put all the corrupt politicians in prison, there has to be a money trail!

    • Rubio is an American citizen. Cruz was born to an American mother which again makes him a citizen. Try to read the constitution. As for Barry Soto there are too many questions and he has paid millions to keep everything under the radar

      • TRUE ABOUT RUBIO BUT HE STILL TRIES TO REVERT TO HIS PAST ./ VERY UNTRUEST WORTHY LIAR DECEIVER CORRUPT CROOKED EMBEDDED RINO ETC

    • How do you remember to breath, given that you are too stupid to breath? Ted Cruz IS an American citizen, Osama IS NOT, Rubio is a citizen, though not a conservative, like he wants you to believe. Ted Cruz is our only true conservative who must win the office of POTUS for our country to get back to the greatness we once had, before Buhrok Osama invited all of his terrorist brothers to enjoy our free stuff, given by Osama,Illegally.

  2. I liked Gowdy, too, but he presented nothing new in the Benghazi Hearings. It was all warmed over duck soup. But being the corrupt official that Hillary has been virtually all her life, one would’ve thought he’d have been more successful at holding her feet to the fire. Make no mistake, her fingerprints were all over the Benghazi failure that resulted in the death of 4 brave Americans.

    • I don’t want anymore nice guys on the Republican side in Washington. I wan’t real Men with killer instincts and an overwhelming desire to win.
      NICE GUYS DO FINISH LAST !

      • Yes, I agree. We have a namby-pamby POTUS who tells us the security of the American people is uppermost in his mind. Then, he leaves the borders wide open enough for a battalion of ISIS terrorists to freely gain access to our people. And he’s got Sanctuary Cities coming out the wazoo all over the U.S. where illegals can commit crimes and go to safely hide – at our expense! Everything is turned upside down with Obozo, and it done intentionally. And a Hillary Clinton presidency would surely continue the declination of the U.S., since both she and Obozo are Saul Alinsky acolytes.

          • GET DONALD IN AS OUR PRESIDENT THEN WATCH THE KILLER HILLARY AND THE ILLEGAL NON AMERICAN LYING CROOKED CORRUPT GAY DRUGGIE WIND UP IN THE POKIE

          • Donald Trump will close our borders, he will deport the illegal alien criminals and build a wall, he will create real jobs, not paper jobs like Obama and he will bring American companies back to America! Donald Trump will reduce the national debt and balance the budget! Donald Trump will make sure that our military is the mightiest fighting force in the world, he will unite the good people of the world and terrorism will be eradicated from the face of the earth. No person running for President can do these things, except Donald Trump! No person running for President seems to want to do these things,except DONALD J. TRUMP! NO ONE, PERIOD! Donald Trump is not a racist, he doesn’t have anything against immigrants of any nationality that are in America legally, he only wants to deport illegal alien criminals and even, every legal immigrant should want that too! Donald Trump will make America greater than she’s ever been! DONALD TRUMP is a LEADER! If anyone thinks that DONALD TRUMP can’t do these things and more, vote him, your next PRESIDENT of the UNITED STATES of AMERICAN and you will be pleasantly surprised!

          • Hillary Clinton is a total failure! She failed at everything she ever tried to do except lying, she is really good at that.

            1. While Secretary of State she failed to react to pleas for help from our Embassy in Benghazi, Libya, that failure cost four Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens their lives!

            2. The administration tried to blame the attack on a video, which they knew was false! Hillary Clinton was part of this conspiracy because she was Secretary of State and did not refute this claim even though there was no way that she could not have known it was false.

            3. Hillary Clinton and her husband stole government property when they left the White House, now I don’t think after eight years they didn’t know what they were doing was illegal and that the property they stole did not belong to them.

            4. While Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton used a private, unsecured email server to send and receive emails which she knew was illegal, while putting our national security at risk. She said others did it that’s why she did it. So it seems even if it is wrong, in her opinion it is right if someone else did it.

            5. While Secretary of State six billion dollars went missing from the State Department! That is taxpayer money, I am a taxpayer and I want to know where my money is!

            6. Just recently Hillary Clinton stated that no Americans lives were lost in Libya while she was Secretary of State. I guess she didn’t know that Benghazi was in Libya. Imagine that, a Secretary of State that doesn’t know her geography! These four Americans died in Benghazi, Libya, Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Information Management officer, Sean Smith, Navy Seals, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.

            7. Hillary Clinton voted for the Iraq war in exchange for 20 billion dollars, promised to her by then President, George W. Bush. Supposedly for the rebuilding of New York City?

            8. Let’s not forget Whitewater and Vince Foster!

            9. Now we have Bill Clinton visiting polling places in an underhanded attempt to influence voters.

            10. When it comes to lying or telling the truth, this is what I heard Hillary Clinton say in an interview with Scott Pelley, she said I have always tried to tell the truth and I don’t believe I ever lied. What? You tell the truth or you don’t, there is no try. She doesn’t think she lied? I don’t believe I ever did anything that I didn’t know I did. If I told a lie, I would know it!

            11. Hillary Clinton even failed in marriage as everyone knows, they also know what went on in the oval office. Any other woman would have divorced her husband except for a woman pursuing a political agenda. Hillary doesn’t love her husband, she is using him for her own political gain.

            12. The establishment, the liberals and the media, slammed Donald Trump for not immediately denouncing David Duke’s endorsement but they say nothing about Hillary Clinton who was close friends with Robert Byrd, a former KKK member and chapter leader. I don’t care how much good one does it cannot erase the past. Byrd was a member of a gang of sheet clad bigots and thugs that maimed and killed people just because they were different much like the terrorists, Isis does now. It doesn’t matter whether or not Byrd was directly involved in any maiming or killings, he is guilty by association. Byrd’s claim that during his time in the KKK there was no violence, BS, he doesn’t know what other members did when he wasn’t around! Besides I don’t believe him, violence was and still is their agenda!

            David Duke a former member of the KKK also served in the political arena, so why is one former KKK member better than another? Robert Byrd and David Duke were members of a bigoted hate group, that maimed and killed for their own self serving agenda. Robert Byrd and David Duke both have blood on their hands, whether or not they were personally involved in any maiming or murders, simply put Robert Byrd and David Duke were terrorists.

        • probably because that was his plan in the first place. he is not stupid he has fooled and brainwashed over 1/2 of America

  3. Trump is right.
    Gowdy himself admitted that he was too “Naive” initially with his approach to Hillary. Give me a break! Here was a golden opportunity for the GOP to finally destroy the Clinton Mafia.
    But he got great reviews for being a gentleman, what a joke, another overrated RINO.

    • Exactly. The hearings were a win win situation. First someone said look where Clinton is in the polls because of the hearings. What a fool. Clinton will sweep unless Trump wins the nomination. She might win big no matter what.

  4. “But what do we mean by the American Revolution? Do we mean the American war? The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments, of their duties and obligations…This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution.” John Adams

  5. I had a very favorable opinion of Goudy for a long time. That has passed with his support of the establishment’s B team. I’m surprised he didn’t fall in the Bush.

  6. A member of the “Congress Club” protecting their vested interest most of which are not in the best interest of the United States of America. The Benghazi “investigation” got “lost in the Washington sauce”. Hillary should be in prison for what happened on her watch. “More sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity” by representatives who are “on an island surrounded by reality”. I agree with Marty, instead of a Bull Dog a Pomeranian or maybe the “yappy”dog from Mexico whose name I can spell. He went from “articulating the mean of the mass” to “wandering generalities”. Hillary should be in prison now, not running for president. Again Donald is an “outsider” who understands what America needs at this time in America’s history. Romney would have served the “people” better than Obama has. Mr. Trump can and will do a great job for the “people” when he is elected.

  7. GOWDY disappointed me, I have come to the conclusion all the establishment politicians are the same, they do not work for “We the people”. I am really glad I am old and won’t see the final demise of my country.

  8. It really DOES stagger the imagination to think that with all of the evidence and witnesses at hand, that a trained prosecutor was unable to tie up a person as morally bankrupt and visibly culpable as Hilarious. This is the kind of occurance that drives the conspiracy theorists!

  9. I think he did his best, but I’m afraid Gowdy just wasn’t up to the task … or perhaps he was putting on a show that was doomed to go nowhere. I’m with Trump.

  10. OK, Mr. Trump, you just kicked the wrong houndawg. Put down my fave conservative. Peed on on mah watermelon vine. I’ve been mostly with ya up til you barfed on this Southern icon. I heard a while back that you had mentioned Trey as your pick for Attorney General, a very bright plan at the time, but now you’ve gone and dissed the same guy! What’s your problem? The second you discover that a person is not for you, you decide to boil ’em in oil? Good grief! I thought that you thought the way we thought, but now my thought is that you don’t. So Trey is gonna endorse Rubio…big deal! That’s no reason for you to open a can of Whoopass on the schoolyard good guy. I’ve decided that you are just a recess bully who beats up any kid who doesn’t smile at you. And, finally, it’s getting more than perfectly clear that you’re not the choice for those of us who want a president who acts presidential. As far as I’m concerned, you can take a taxi back to your Trump tower and bully your staff while you clip coupons between now and November 8 next year.

    • Your ignorance is showing through……Getting rid of the status quo president that you prefer is what this election is all about……Even Obama looks presidential, whatever that means……

      • RE: Ignorance…as modern-day therapists say, “If you can spot it, you’ve got it.” Tell us more about your hyper-sensitive self, pal. All I was doing was expressing my opinion; why respond un-civilly as you did? This is not the election, it’s just the primary run-up. Let’s settle on a nominee, then focus our wrath on Hillary, OK?

    • AMEN Brother, Ted Cruz is the only true Conservative in the race, and our best chance for a great President. Donald trump is a whiny little cry baby, who can’t accept constructive criticism, and he’s not for America. The Donald is only for Donald.

      • Fully agree, Fishin’…Trump is a ‘loose cannon’…not a good thing to have on board your ship. Plus, he’s an egotistical, thin-skinned bully, ready to duke it out with any of a differing opinion. No good as POTUS.

  11. I really respect Trey Gowdy!!!! He did a great job but the media will not talk about all they found!!!! I would vote for Trey Gowdy for President and I would LOVE to see RINOs replaced!!!!!

    • Just what has Gowdy done to win your respect? He’s all talk with no results to show for his multi-million dollar witch hunt……He and Lindsey Graham are cut from the same bolt of cloth……Must be the water in SC……..

  12. At first we thought that Trey Gowdy was a true American Patriot, but recently came to the realization that all he did in spite of his bluster and demeanor was preside over a “Show Trial”……….and he did a real good job of it, didn’t he?

  13. As it turns out, all we received from Gowdy was a large mouth with no substance….Kind of like his senator friend from SC, Lindsey Graham…..Both are like hot air baloons……They cave in when they encounter

    cooler air……

  14. I think there is something in Trey Gowdys history that stopped him from accepting the chance to be Speaker, and now it has come to light, and he has been warned to back Rubio ( Florida, no doubt a second choice, because Jebby isn’t going to make it ) or whatever it is, will be made known to the public. He went from a firebrand, to a patsy, and is now backing Mario, not Jeb?? Something is rotten here and it isn’t cheese. He doesn’t look well, either, so I feel bad for him, but just shows that every politician has their price. Sorry for you, Trey!

  15. was very disappointing .. hellary rotten sitting there with her chin resting on her hand showing her usual defiance and hatred.. maybe she paid gowdy off to be easy on her.. hope the FBI can get some goods on her! would love to see her being lead off with handcuffs to prison.. hope she cannot pay off someone to get her off…her and obama deserve to be put away in prison for their crimes against Americans

  16. Gowdy only proves he is in the establishment and that is why he dropped the Bengazzi hearings on Hillary. The establishment Republicans would rather have Hillary as President than Trump because she will go along with their big party and Trump will put an end to the big party that is not at all beneficial to the American People. The Repubs know Hillary can’t beat Trump and will beat Rubio but if Rubio wins , he will be a controlled robut by the elite in Washington.

    • we need men who can stand firm and persevere and lead this country by the living God and His word.Why do you people think this nation became so great? Why do you think it has drastically gone down-hill?

  17. I LIKE TREY BUT IT HAS TAKEN A BIT TO LONG TO ME ON BENGHAZI SO I GUESS THAT I AM ON DONALD TRUMPS SIDE ON THIS ONE TRUMP WILL MAKE A GREAT PRESIDENT WITH TED CRUZ AS VP AND CARSON AS THE HEAD OF HHS

  18. I like TREY, but like Trump says “Gowdy let the Republican party down when he conducted the Hillary-Benghazi hearings….she got away scott free…its as if someone got a hold of Trey cause he is usually a “LION on a “MOUSE” but for some reason ….not this time…and if he does in fact support Rubio, then he is letting the country down because the constitution will not allow Rubio be president because he is not a “Natural Born Citizen” Please read the constitutions….

  19. Rubio was born in Miami, Florida, the second son and third child of Mario Rubio Reina and Oriales (née Garcia) Rubio. His parents were Cubans who immigrated to the United States in 1956, Neither of his parents was a U.S. citizen at the time of Rubio’s birth, but ultimately his parents applied for U.S. citizenship and were naturalized in 1975….Which of course makes Marco Rubio a U.S. citizen only, capable of running for senate but not qualified under the term “Natural Born Citizen” a mandatory requirement for POTUS or VPOTUS IAW the constitution.

  20. Honestly if I had to chose it would be Trey over Trump who is my choice .I love Donald but he simply has to stop acting like a petulant child whenever anyone doesn’t agree with him or doesn’t view him the same way others do. Next I believe Trey is one of the most honest decent smart people in Politics, he owes no one and perhaps he knowing Marco Rubio views him in a good light.I was hoping befoe Trump he would get into the race. I’d have voted for him in a NY minute. I happen to really like Rubio as well, I think he is the smartest guy in the race. I think he would do a great job at beating Hillary that not even Trump seems to be able to in the polls. So my point is let is shake out and stop calling people like the HONORABLE tough Mr Gowdy names for his own personal choice. You sound like Democrats when you do that.

  21. Gowdy, Whom I previously believed to be on a near Sen. Ted Cruz legal intellectual CONSTITUTION BULL DOG…is NOW..as far DOWN as my ‘belief” has deteriorated..JUST BIT HIMSELF IN HIS AZZZZZZZZ !!!!

  22. It was a big let down how all the Repubs performed on the hearings. It was said they proved she lied. If that’s true why haven’t we seen charges against her brought ? Sad, very bad !

    • Simple. The major media outlets spun the reporting as a victory for the HildeBeast due to her steely countenance under heavy, but factual grilling. Frankly, I thought HRC got her due and Gowdy, et al, did a masterful job of taking her apart, piece by rotten piece. What most viewers retained is the image created by major media of a helpless female victim under relentless assault by vicious, though fully factual, unchivalrous males. Most folks retained the surreal image that the liberal media formulated. Most of the posts here reflect this bizarre, intentional media manipulation.

      • While I will agree the media is/was no help…One can not discount the fact that if she lied she should be brought to task for it and that’s the responsibility of the committee. It also seems strange that once she is sworn in she’s obligated to answer all questions thrown at her and would have given the Repubs a great opportunity to delve into the e-mail scandal. A great missed opportunity in my opinion. I can guarantee had the DIMMs been the ones conducting a similar hearing against a Repub they would have taken such an opportunity.

  23. Look at the Gowdy votes. That tells a very true story. Sad had so much respect for him. Follow the money when he leaves congress. Then you know who paid him off.

  24. Trey Gowdy had the very special position of being to take the unindicted felon hellery clintonista DOWN, but he didn’t and most likely will not. He is a disgusting traitor and should be recalled from his current House position. He and his Benghazi committee should go after hellery for contempt of Congress, lying under oath, perjury, etc. He should put a freez on the clinton foundation and order a total and complete audit of the clinton family business. He’s a do-nothing loser and a traitor to the American people

  25. I really like Trey and think he would be a great atty general but I am very disappointed in the hearings. Why isn’t killary in prison and obummer right behind her?They both were proven to lie and hide the real truth on the terrorist actions there.

  26. I really like Gowdy; however, in this case Trump is correct. Gowdy had Hillary in the vice grips and should have stopped when he uncovered some of those gotcha moments. Instead he want on for 11 hours and watered down the main points.

  27. Gowdy is an idiot. SIXTY U.S. Embassy and Consulate personnel were murdered during G.W. Bush’s administration. Where was his outrage then? I’ve tried to think of something nice to say about Trump.

  28. Trump is right, I love trey Gowdy but if he had done his job I don’t think killary the proven liar would still be in the running and furthermore, to cement his status as a loser, he decides to endorse the loser amnesty lover scrubio who will screw us all… just what in the hell is this idiot thinking? does he want to go down as the biggest loser of all?

  29. The Donald is absolutely right and Rubio is a Amnesty Rino…I will not vote for anyone other than #TRUMP2016 .. the Republican party has become a JOKE!
    #MakeAmericaGreatAgain

  30. Franklyfrank nails it. Joins Paul Ryan and is crossed of the list of “Statesmanship” (What’s good for America not what’s good for the party) list and qualifies for RINO list. Another vested interest decision compounded by “sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity”!

  31. The GOP establishment has finally shoved Jeb Bush under the bus and are now backing the youngster from FL who they know they can control…..The establishment led by Karl Rove, Phil Bennett, John Sunnu and other political hacks cost us the 2012 election, an election that should have been a slam dunk…..We main stream republicans are now joining the Tea party movement with the goal of smashing the ole guard republicans who are the lap dogs for the rich and wealthy and their powerful lobbyists….Trump in 2016 is our answer…..I was somewhat disappointed in Ted’s response to Bret Baer regarding the immigration issue….Baer had Cruz stammering and stuttering and that’s not good….

  32. Trey Gowdy is nothing but hot air! He is a rino and I’m sure friends with HIllary. He should be ashamed of himself! He promised those 4 families he was going to hold Hillary responsible and get to the bottom of it, and he did no such thing! He is a traitor and I am no longer a fan!

  33. Gowdy is either in the RHINO back pocket, or an idiot. He let the hildabeast slide and greased the wheels for her…

  34. We have to realize Trey is nothing more than an APPOINTED talking head, whose sole purpose was to give the people hope where there is none, BECAUSE of criminals in the government ARE involved. It is and always has been a dog and pony show.
    ALL AMERICANS KNOW Hi LIAR y is a criminal ALONG WITH OBAMA. We have no questions about it, they are GUILTY.
    Do we REALLY expect them to be justly tried and punished? Of course not! Because that is not what criminals do. Would criminals in the government clamor for more political criminals to be honestly dealt with? Seriously?

    Why do you think Obama has gotten away with all that he has? Because he is supported by criminals within the government. Just because a few are calling for justice and calling the criminals out, it does not even mean it remotely will ever happen.

    Criminals always surround themselves with people who (for a price) will protect them.

  35. Old item! Yesterday(5/21/16)..Gowdy has endorsed Donald Trump for President. And Hillary is NOT off the Benghazi hook yet, nor the E-Mails hook either. The investigation is still going on.

  36. There sure are a lot of stupid Americans that run their mouth about what Hillary Benghazi Clinton gets away with but that is all they do! If everyone with any sense wrote/emailed their senators every day like I do this xxxxx would be buried so deep in a prison cell that they would have to pump sunshine into it!

    • WE THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA DEMAND THAT HILLARY CLINTON BE ARRESTED AND PROSECUTED FOR HER CRIMES AGAINST AMERICA AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE! FROM HER FAILURE TO AID OUR PEOPLE IN BENGHAZI, LOSING SIX BILLION DOLLARS OF TAXPAYER’S MONEY TO PUTTING OUR COUNTRY AND EVERY AMERICAN’S LIFE AT RISK BY USING A NON SECURE EMAIL SERVER. ALSO DELETING ABOUT 30,000 PRIVATE EMAILS THAT WERE GOVERNMENT PROPERTY BECAUSE THEY WERE ON THE SAME SERVER USED FOR GOVERNMENT BUSINESS AND EACH DELETION WAS DESTRUCTION OF GOVERNMENT PROPERTY AND EACH DELETION EQUALED ONE FELONY OR A TOTAL OF 30,000 FELONIES, ENOUGH TO SEND HER TO PRISON FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE. HILLARY CLINTON’S LIFE HAS BEEN ONE SCANDAL AFTER ANOTHER AND SHE IS NOT FIT TO BE PRESIDENT. HILLARY CLINTON IS A CAREER CRIMINAL AND ALL CRIMINALS BELONG IN PRISON. SHE IS AS WORTHLESS AS TITS ON A BOAR! A DISGRACE TO ALL WOMEN!

  37. Hearings took too long and people lost interest plus Trey was blocked to a large extent by the “Chairman” Cummings protecting or protracting getting Democratic witnesses to appear.
