Republican Dan Crenshaw from Texas told the audience of the "Texas Liberty Alliance" (yeah) that many of his fellow members in Congress from the Freedom Caucus are...wait for it..."grifters and hucksters."

Has Rep. Crenshaw been reading Crooks and Liars?

First of all Dan Crenshaw is highly performative himself so I wonder what's his angle?

My friend Colby Hall grabbed this tweet from Ron Filipkowski.

Crenshaw spoke on December 5th, at the Texas Liberty Alliance with 38th Congressional Candidate Wesley Hunt and 8th Congressional Candidate Morgan Luttrell, when he made these comments.

The Republican Congressman was asked why he was supporting these candidates.

Crenshaw replied," Now there are two types of members of Congress: there's performance artists and there's legislators.”

Wow.

He continued, “Performance artists are the ones who get all of the attention, the ones you think are more conservative because they know how to say slogans real well. They know how to recite the lines that they know our voters want to hear.”

Crenshaw praised Rep. Adam Kinzinger (Who voted to impeach Trump) for voting with Trump much more than these wackos in the Freedom Caucus.

"What you hear so often is not true. It’s not true. We have grifters in our midst..." Crenshaw stated.

Crenshaw said, "I mean in the conservative movement. Lie after lie after lie because they know something psychologically about the conservative heart. We’re worried about what people are doing to do to us, what people are going to infringe upon us, that’s the nature of conservatism."

Some truth being said to Republican voters in Texas for a change from a Republican.

And that means Rep. Jim Jordan is a lying grifter. I couldn't agree more.

Current members include:

Mo Brooks (R-Ala.)
Ken Buck (R-Colorado)
Matt Gaetz (R-FL-10)
Louie Gohmert (R-Texas)
Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.)
Chip Roy (R-Texas)
Jim Jordan (R-Ohio)
Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-14)
Lauren Boebert (CO-3)[74]
