“I’m embarrassed to say, I thought you could defeat hate. You can’t. It only hides. It crawls under the rocks, and, when given oxygen by any person in authority, it comes roaring back out. And what I realized is the words of a President, even a lousy President, matter. They can take care of war, they can bring peace, they can make the market rise, they can make it fall. But they can also give hate oxygen.” Joe Biden
Chairman Hinojosa Releases Statement Celebrating Donald Trump’s Announcement of 2024 Presidency Bid
AUSTIN, Texas -- Tonight, Texas Democratic Party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa released the following statement celebrating Donald Trump’s announcement of his 2024 presidency bid:
“Tonight, Texas Democrats celebrate the announcement of our twice-impeached, under-investigation, under-subpoena, former president’s 2024 presidency bid. We look forward to Donald Trump galvanizing Democrats across the country for a fourth straight election cycle.
“If chosen as the Republican nominee, Donald Trump – who had the worst showing for any Republican presidential nominee in Texas (and the only single-digit statewide presidential victories) since the 1990s – will only help the Texas Democratic Party in our mission of turning Texas blue.
“The 2024 Republican primary will be a fascinating circus to watch. We expect Ron DeSantis to be chastised for his inability to fully exile the new, woke Mickey Mouse from a state that he himself has said is ‘where woke goes to die.’ We expect Greg Abbott to be excoriated for refusing to ban all pronouns in the state he’s ostensibly supposed to be keeping in line. And we expect Ted Cruz, unable to withstand the cold winter weather in Des Moines, to make an encore escape to the sandy beaches of Cancun (good thing he can still record his podcast remotely). But in the end, we do expect Donald Trump to retain his mantle as leader of the Republican Party – or whatever pieces of it still remain intact.
“We could not have asked for a better kickoff to the 2024 election cycle. We fully expect having this extremist, highly-unpopular joke of a losing candidate at the top of the Republican ticket will help us in our greater mission of eventually flipping Texas into a state where working families are given a fighting chance instead of being sold out to the highest corporate CEO campaign donor.”
