On The Brink Of Defeat, Chuck Grassley Seems Terrified That Trump Is Coming To Iowa


Sen. Chuck Grassley (I-IA) is facing the closest election of his career, so he released a statement on Trump coming to Iowa that never mentioned Trump.

The statement is a political work of art in trying to avoid toxic Trump:




Grassleyís statement is supposedly about Trumpís upcoming visit to Iowa, but the statement doesnít mention when the Iowa event is, if Grassley will be appearing with Trump, what the Iowa event is about, and it never mentions Trump at all.

It is almost like Chuck Grassley doesnít want voters in Iowa to know that Donald Trump is coming, and he definitely doesnít want to have his name associated with Trump.

Grassleyís struggles with Iowa voters are nothing new. A 2021 poll found that 64% of Iowans wanted him gone.

In July of 2022, Grassley started polling under 50% for the first time since 1980.


Grassley is currently locked in a statistical tie with his Democratic challenger Mike Franken in what will be the closest election of the 89-year-oldís career.

Chuck Grassley is in real danger of losing his seat, and it speaks volumes about the degree of liability that Trump poses for Republican candidates two weeks before election day if an incumbent as entrenched as Sen. Grassley wonít mention the former presidentís name in a statement.

11. "The border was secure"......



No, the border wasn't secure. Trump just talked to his racist, xenophobic acolytes non-stop about it and they believed the border was secure.

All we heard from Trump was wall, wall, wall, wall, wall, wall and he put some children in cages for shock value. To MAGAts that meant the border was secure. Nothing could have been further from the truth.

I hope you go down in flames, Grassley!

12. At 89, why would you be afraid of losing an election?

Your life is coming to a close. You canít take any of that power, control, money or fame with you.

13. I hope Franken wins

The trouble is that I have are memories from phone banking an election or two ago. The Iowans asked us Texas Dems to help and I was one of the phone bankers. What I discovered was that the Iowans I talked to thought of themselves as Democrats, but they liked Grassley too much to vote against him, even though he supported policies that were bad for them.

You can guess the result: Grassley was re-elected.

I hope Iowa voters get over that sort of thinking. You can still like a guy personally, but you arenít obliged to keep him in office.
