Dems Mock Trump Assassination
Martin Sandoval (D-IL) held a disgusting fundraiser at the expense of President Trump. As seen in the post below, an unidentified attendee wearing a Trump mask holds his hands over his chest as another guest points a fake gun at him. As you can see, they were endorsing the death of the president.

It isn’t certain whether or not Sandoval knew about the mock Assassination photos before they were posted on Facebook. However, the senator was seen posing with the man who held the fake gun.
Sandoval issued an apology via email by stating that he doesn’t “condone violence toward the president or anyone else. I apologize that something like this happened at my event.”
Illinois Republican Party Chairman Tim Schneider has also spoken out about the situation:
The apology from Sen. Sandoval for the detestable pictures from his event depicting an assassination of President Trump is too little, too late. Dangerous imagery like this will be condemned and seen as inappropriate by people of sound mind; however, a mentally unstable individual who wants to harm President Trump might find them as an inspiration.
– Tim Schneider
We couldn’t agree more. It also shows the blatant hypocrisy of those on the Left who cry in outrage for more gun control one minute, yet turn around and make a joke out of gun violence the next.
Beto O’Rourke Will Not Run for Senate
Presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke said that he won’t drop out of the 2020 race in order to run for Senate in an interview on MSNBC.

O’Rourke ran for the Senate against Ted Cruz last year. Although it was a tight race, Cruz won the election. In recent months, many Democrats in Texas have been pushing for O’Rourke to drop out of the presidential race and instead run against incumbent Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX).
Just last week the Houston Chronicle’s editorial board asked Beto to “come home” because the chances of him winning the presidential race are “vanishingly small.” If Beto knows what’s best for his political future, he’d drop out of the presidential race and focus on something truly within his league.
Warren Apologizes to Native Americans
Senator Elizabeth Warren spoke at a presidential forum on Native American issues in Sioux City, Iowa on Monday. She took the opportunity to apologize for the many years she lied about her Native American ancestry.
Ahead of Elizabeth Warren’s speech today at the Native American Presidential Forum in Sioux City, IA, here’s a reminder for you: Warren is NOT Native American – she lied about being one in order to claim minority status at a critical point in her career. https://t.co/vfzmwpcYhW

This was her half-hearted apology for her false claim of minority status for political gain.
Like anyone who’s being honest with themselves, I know that I have made mistakes. I am sorry for the harm I have caused. I have listened and I have learned a lot, and I am grateful for the many conversations that we’ve had together.
Warren has used her alleged Native American heritage for years. She utilized it to gain an upper hand in college and later in her career as a law professor and Senator. Warren’s claims were first revealed when she ran for Senate in 2012. People were excited to find out that she was listed as Harvard Law School’s first female professor of color.
Once her ancestry was questioned by President Trump in 2016, the Senator decided to take a DNA test. The test concluded that she was only 1/1,024 Cherokee. After releasing the results of the test, the Cherokee Nation accused Warren of dishonoring the tribe and its people.
Warren has been working hard to erase all the lies of her past since she announced her 2020 presidential campaign. Let’s hope the voting public never forgets.
