DONALD TRUMP JR. FUNDRAISER FOR KANSAS SECSTATE GUV CONTENDER KRIS KOBACH: WILL IT WORK OR ALIENATE ESTABLISHMENT GOP?!?



A JoCo right-wing gathering of big money donors and a smattering of protesters outside dominates the local political discourse this evening as The White House pushes one of their lesser allies.

Here are the better news links along with some video of the event . . .

Fox4: Trump Jr. shows support for Kansas governor candidate Kris Kobach in Overland Park

AP: Trump Jr. discusses father during Kansas event

Newsweek: Donald Trump Jr. Is Boosting Kris Kobach, an Immigration Hardliner Who Condemned U.S. 'Hispanization'

What's interesting here is that only the establishment GOP stand in the way of SecState Kobach as American politics devolves into tribalism and the otherwise sorry state of Sunflower State economic and education policy doesn't merit very much consideration.

Still, the endorsement of a trust fund baby who made a few guest appearances on a reality TV show should be more than enough to convince Kansas that tax funds for corporations will improve their lot in life.

OR . . . Is SecState Kris Kobach and his C-List GOP popularity overestimating the very real concerns of Kansas voters who actually picked Ted Cruz BY DOUBLE DIGITS over the current Prez Trump back in the Republican Presidential primary . . . ???

Either way, the reality is that opponents in this Guv race consist mostly of teens and faceless bureaucrats. 

You decide . . .

^^^ That's impressive but you don't start measuring from the taint.

Kobach will win, but it still won't help his career.

Kobach needs to quit his job working for Brietbart, or quit his job working for Der Fuhrer. He can't do both, & he is inviting an investigation by the DOJ for just this conflict of interest.

He will win & Kansas will lose, because they will have a one-trick pony for governor who's clear racism makes it impossible for him to represent all of the people. He'll only be a part-time governor because of his hobby of attacking & vilifying brown people.

^^^ Actually, a lot of that is correct. But it will cost him the job for Governor.

He can be a lobbyists for his Koch Daddy.

Why is requiring immigrants to be here legally racist ? What's wrong with asking for legal ID TO vote ?

Protesting at an event like this is like:


A vegetarian protesting outside a steakhouse.


If you don't eat meat, never go to the steakhouse to spend your dollars, but don't stand outside with signs and a bullhorn!
Dumb, dumb, dumb!

Fuck you funkhouser and stop reading the Star and acting like you have a clue what is going on and 10:19 you're just as fucking dumb as the wholesale liar and phony is.

Trump Jr talks with his hands a lot.

The way a car salesman might, so as to let you know how smart he is.

In "The Art of the Deal" Trump says his grandfather came here from Sweden, but we know that's not true. His grandfather came here from Dusseldorf. Look at Donald, Jr. does he look Swedish to you, or does he look German. BTW, Trump is a German name which is why I always assumed he was German.

But, Trump's supporters don't care about any of his lies. He's a racist like them, that's all that they care about. They think he's going to Make America White Again. Whatever that means.

Fuck you 11:43 (see I can say that, too - BFD). I have never read The Star, except the articles from them that Tony posts here.

Unfortunately Trump is supporting the wrong GOP candidate. The last KS governor's election showed that Kansans want to move away from Brownback era. If Kobach is the republican candidate a Democrat will be in the governor's mansion.

The protesters were just out to protest a Republican president. It could have been the daughter of Bob Dole and they would be out for blood, claiming she's a racist, xenophobe, womanizer who is dangerous and colluding with the Russians, Germans, Japanese, or whatever conspiracy theory they are told by Democratic strategists to de-legitimatize the president. Kind of like Trump's birther campaign....

Der Funkhouser posting at 2:51 AM in a drunken, angry, disoriented state - how entertaining! You get to see the true side of the mooching far left fascist.
