Former President Donald Trump recently got delighted with the news that Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) would not be aiming for re-election to the House on Wednesday with a series of insults on Truth Social.
Following Buck’s announcement on MSNBC that he would be leaving Congress following the next election, Trump wrote:
“Good news for the Country! Congressman Ken Buck of Colorado, a weak and ineffective Super RINO if there ever was one, announced today that he won’t be running again, which is a great thing for the Republican Party. He knew long ago he could never win against MAGA, so now he is, like some past and present, auditioning for a job at Fake News CNN, MSDNC, or some other Country-destroying Leftwing Outlet. They can have him, and watch their Ratings go down still further, if that’s even possible!”
It has been noted that during an appearance on MSNBC via Media Ite, Buck, who has served in Congress since 2015 — told anchor Andrea Mitchell that it was time “to do some other things” and that he had grown “disappointed” both “with our inability in Congress to deal with major issues” and “disappointed that the Republican Party continues to, you know, rely on this lie that the 2020 election was stolen, and rely on the January 6th narrative, and the political prisoners from January 6th.”
Buck also rejected to state if he would vote for Trump over President Joe Biden during the 2024 election, calling it “a very difficult decision” and one that he would have to make “at the time.”
