Former MAGA Congressman Dumps Trump, Says “Loyalty Was Only a One-Way Street”


A formerly ardent Trump fan in Congress and one of his earliest supporters, Rep. Lou Barletta, says he will not support Trump’s run for the presidency in 2024 because Trump demands loyalty but doesn’t give it back.

“I’m not supporting him,” Barletta told Politico. “I was one of his most loyal supporters in Congress. But loyalty was only a one-way street.”

Barletta left Congress in 2019 and ran for governor in his home state of Pennsylvania, vying all the way for Trump’s endorsement. Instead, the former president endorsed Doug Mastriano in the Republican primary, who ended up being demolished in the general election by Democrat Josh Shapiro.

Another former congressman from Pennsylvania, Tom Marino, also blasted Trump for not showing loyalty back to Barletta.

“Lou and I were the first congressmen to come out and endorse Trump in his first election. We took a lot of heat about it,” Marino said. “I’m very disappointed in the former president. Because apparently, the loyalty does not go as far as he says.”

“I’ll tell you what he does,” Marino added. “He watches the polls and whoever is the lead, coming into the tail end of things, that’s who he’s going to give out his endorsement.”

  1. We get it. You don’t like Trump. This hackery isn’t changing anyone’s opinion. There are other issues going on. Biden drag queen nuclear engineer stole from someone. Chuck “Shomer Yisroel” Schumer(proud endorsee of the Askan class) is making Toeiva Marriage protected by Federal Law. Biden and the neo liberal war mongers are causing an energy crisis.

  2. Anyone still didn’t see trump the narcissist! And now I see I was right…. he is a supremacist and hopefully won’t win presidency or the jews will be doomed…

  3. Trump may be biting a bit , however the evil being dished across these pages are lies, lies…..there is not one partner to Israel and the Jewish people other than a Trump…period…….America is a hole in basket of dirt….

  4. Teal, no, he is definitely not a “supremacist”. He is what he has always been, and what his supporters have never pretended he wasn’t: A narcissist, childish, ill-informed, and boorish. Those flaws were apparent from the very beginning. Like the classical tragic hero that he is, he succeeded and rose to the top despite those flaws, or even because of them. And like the classical tragic hero, those flaws now bring him low. That’s how tragedy works.

  5. Unfortunately all these crazy Jewish sites don’t realize that people don’t look at them for political information. We know where you guys stand It doesn’t make a difference whether you’re what is news, situation, or even YWN, you guys always run off to the leftist media for your latest hypocrisy.

    Enjoy the dustbin.
