Trump’s Questionable Endorsement
Trump was not mocking President Biden for being guided around by Easter Bunny. Instead, he was applauding his endorsed candidate J.D. Vance.
Trump’s praise of Vance seems to center around the Republican’s odds of winning the seat.
“I studied this very closely,” he told the crowd of supporters. “I like a lot of the other people in the race. They were very nice. But we have to pick the one that’s going to win. This man is as tough as a rock. He’s going win.”

Some have questioned Trump’s decision, however, especially considering comments have surfaced in which Vance openly fretted in 2016 that Trump was either “a cynical a**hole” or “America’s Hitler.”
“I go back and forth between thinking Trump is a cynical a**hole like Nixon who wouldn’t be that bad (and might even prove useful) or that he’s America’s Hitler,” Vance said in a message to former roommate and current Georgia Representative, Democrat Josh McLaurin.

In his speech, Trump acknowledged that Vance had “said some bad s*** about me.”
He still endorsed him, saying that almost everyone has taken offense to him at some point.
“He’s a guy that said some bad s*** about me, he did,” Trump said. “But, you know what? Every one of the others did also.”
“[In] fact, if I went by that standard, I don’t think I would have ever endorsed anybody in the country,” he surmised.
Fair, although harsh.
