Get ready to chuckle, folks. A zealous House Republican casually informed the press mafia that they’re keeping a tight hold on that bill aiding the border situation. Why? Guess what – it’s all part of a cunning plan to batter Biden’s approval ratings straight into the dirt.
Hilarious Video Clip:
GOP Rep Ol’ Troy Nehls says happily supporting a Senate border deal right now would give Joe Uncle Biden’s ratings a boost. Well, hell no!

You’ve got to admire their honesty – Representative Troy “The Spoiler” Nehls (R-TX), grinning ear-to-ear, told CNN innocently enough, “Why would we want to lend any kind of hand and lift her up from this dismal 33% pit she’s found herself in?” With barely concealed glee he continued – “You honestly think if our buddy Joe’s popularity had more than half an approving nod we’d even care about chatting over borders? We wouldn’t spare two thoughts for borders unless they were made of chocolate and stuffed with crispy bills.”
In essence, House Republicans appear to have admitted that this whole “border crisis” hoopla really isn’t about the border at all. Of course not! Who’d think such a thing? It’s just an innocent plan to punch some holes in President Biden’s approval rating. Easy peasy, it gives the GOP an upper hand in that slight event known as ‘the election’ coming up in November.
Just another example of how these down-to-earth representatives view things: It’s never boring with them – border bill – politics – one and same. The teeny weeny motivation to pass a potentially beneficial bill because it might actually improve situations or do their country some good? Who are they kidding?!
The sheer youthful exuberance of those crackerjack House Republicans is breathtaking sometimes! Risking damaging America is nothing if it helps shove Joe ‘Grandpa’ Biden’s approval ratings further into slushy territory? These passionate daredevils are supposed to be governing (they’re being paid for it after all), but why should they let mundane tasks like nurturing the nation stand in the way of juicy political drama?
“Hey look! We got everything we wanted practically gift-wrapped from this so-called ‘border bill’. Do you seriously expect us not say ‘no’ on principle?” To covertly clinch victory over old Grandpa Uncle Joe, every trick counts!
