Top Republican Calls President Donald Trump ‘Our A**hole’

Rep. Duncan Hunter, one of Trump’s first allies in Congress, just gave the most unvarnished, most unguarded, and most uncouth assessment of President Donald Trump.

Duncan Hunter described the president in profane terms to a group of Republicans last Friday. “He’s an asshole, but he’s our asshole,” Hunter told the group.

He also touted the president as their champion.

Marine officer and combat veteran Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) was speaking alongside Rep. Ken Calvert (R-CA) at a Riverside County Young Republicans meeting when the two men were asked what President Trump is really like, according to Breitbart.

“He’s just like he is on TV,” said Hunter who added, “He’s an asshole, but he’s our asshole.” The Tribune cited three on-the-record sources (one anonymous) and social media posts in its report of the event.

Attendee Whitney Walsh told the Tribune that the crowd “were fine with that answer.” The report event stating that the crowd “ate up Hunter’s assessment.”

On the day of Trump’s inauguration as President of the United States Hunter stated, “Only time will tell the type of president that Mr. Trump will be and whether he’ll be able to follow through on his many promises.” He predicted that there would be no honeymoon period for this President with “Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi steering the priorities of congressional Democrats.”

At that time, Hunter lauded Trump’s choices of James Mattis and John Kelly to join the administration. “[Trump] must not forget that when Americans voted for real change, they really meant it,” stated Hunter in his January 20 release.
