Mark Sanford’s Presidential Campaign Basically Over After Two Trump Tweets

President Donald J. Trump hadn’t acknowledged either of the first two establishment GOP clowns who entered the 2020 Republican primary in an attempt to run against him. But he hilariously stomped on former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford, who launched a presidential bid Sunday. 

“When the former Governor of the Great State of South Carolina, [Mark Sanford] was reported missing, only to then say he was away hiking on the Appalachian Trail, then was found in Argentina with his Flaming Dancer friend, it sounded like his political career was over,” Trump said on Twitter. “It was, but then he ran for Congress and won, only to lose his re-elect after I Tweeted my endorsement, on Election Day, for his opponent. But now take heart, he is back, and running for President of the United States. The Three Stooges, all badly failed candidates, will give it a go!”

In 2009, Sanford disappeared from the public eye for six days in June. His staff told media he was “hiking the Appalachian Trail.” It turned out that he was in Argentina, having an affair with a journalist with whom he’d been cheating on his wife for a year. He and his wife later divorced, and “hiking the Appalachian Trail” became a sexual euphemism.

Sanford entered the 2020 race Sunday with a non-serious message of fostering “national debate on our nation’s debt, deficits and spending.”

I explained why that message is non-serious on Twitter Sunday night.
