UH OH: Trump is losing endorsements over attack on former press secretary Kayleigh McEnany

The other day we wrote about Trump’s juvenile attack on his former press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and how it was all based on her using the ‘wrong’ poll numbers while discussing he and DeSantis on Fox News.

Well a lot of people didn’t like his attack on McEnany, especially considering she was one of the best things to happen to him during his presidency.

According to reports in the NH Journal, it’s now costing Trump endorsements and support:

Donald Trump’s treatment of his former spokesperson, Fox News host Kayleigh McEnany, has cost him the support of a New Hampshire GOP state representative. And, NHGOP insiders say, the repercussions from his attacks on his longtime aide and ally continue to reverberate.

Rep. James Spillane (R-Deerfield) was on stage with President Trump at the Doubletree in Manchester on April 27 when the former president announced that more than 50 GOP House members had endorsed his candidacy.

But on Thursday, Spillane told NHJournal he was pulling his public endorsement of Trump and backing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in response to Trump’s treatment of the popular Fox News personality.

“I can no longer continue endorsing former President Trump,” Spillane said. “I am officially withdrawing my endorsement, as his most recent attack on Kayleigh McEnany is beyond comprehension and explanation. Against my deepest hopes that Trump had learned some measure of control, he has attacked those who have been his staunchest supporters with no regard for their loyalty.”

Spillane is the fourth state representative to flip from Trump to DeSantis in the past few weeks.

It’s just one representative and one endorsement for now which isn’t much. But I suspect there are many more that didn’t like the attack who we’d never know about. You know, normal voters.
