Donald Trump offers to back challenger to Rep. John Katko: 'He is bad news'

Washington – Former president Donald Trump is offering to help back a primary challenger to Rep. John Katko, one of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach him in January.

Trump made his offer in a handwritten letter delivered today to the chairman of the Onondaga County Conservative Party.

Trump wrote his note over a copy of an April 23 article posted on Syracuse.com with the headline, “Onondaga County Conservative Party dumps John Katko over Trump impeachment vote.”

Bernie Ment, the party’s chairman, said he received the letter by UPS express delivery. The letter was in an inner envelope with the presidential seal and a return address of Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s private club in Palm Beach, Fla.

1. Presidential seal?! I looked it up and found I can also close my envelopes

with a presidential seal sticker. Lots of designs available, individually or by the roll.



Unless he stole the real thing from the WH, guessing it means he can't be ordered to cease and desist.

7. The logo translates as


"45 is a puppet"

Note the hammer and sickle on top band of the shield. There is no missing the golf clubs.

2. The foaming-at-the-mouth rabid dog strikes again.

I am hoping that enough sanity returns that every person Trump supports loses in the primaries. That may be impossible, but we don’t need more people like Boebert, Gosar, and Greene in the House.

12. Don't know much about Katko's district

Letting the rabid Trumpers install a wacko a'la Boebert during the primary may not work out for them in the general election, and benefit us.

13. New York's 24th

According to a quick Wikipedia search, it's one of the only districts that Biden won that is represented by a Republican. Biden carried the district 53 - 44 while Katko was re-elected 53 - 43. If they primary him out with a whacko, this is a good opportunity for a Dem pick-up.

14. Yeah just looked that up

I say we sit back and let whatever happens happen. Don't send money to Katko at least.

We need a solid candidate ourselves is all.

6. His secretarial help is better equipped to entertain men poolsiide than prepare letters


Even there, he has cut down on hiring to cut expenses. Why, he is so strapped for money he had to hire his bodyguard to be COO of the tRump organization. It's either that or it is so crime-riddled he didn't dare hire a COO from outside. Or both.

10. Ha, ha!

He used to do this sort of thing quite often before he was president. He'd clip a newspaper and magazine article or photo and scrawl something on it, then mail it to a person he thought would be interested. Such a peculiar person. I wonder what the recipients thought of his odd habit.

4. Ha, he will never deliver unless they pay him first.

They will have to pay and pay big for anything drumpf does. Anything he says he's doing for the party, or for America is just a lie and another grifting or self-promotion opportunity.

5. Tricky.

That backing for the challenger may actually help Katko.

15. No shades of gray in FG45's judgment

Everything is simple, good, bad, the worst, the best. No nuances, no depth.
