For awhile I thought this post written last night was all for naught. POTUS wasn’t going to seize the opportunity to topple one of his most ardent Republican critics after all. The mystery might linger forever: Why, with Mark Sanford battling for his political life and his seat in no danger of going to a Democrat, didn’t Trump administer the coup de grace by endorsing his opponent, Katie Arrington?
But there is no mystery after all. The endorsement has come.
And it’s a doozy:
Mark Sanford has been very unhelpful to me in my campaign to MAGA. He is MIA and nothing but trouble. He is better off in Argentina. I fully endorse Katie Arrington for Congress in SC, a state I love. She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes. VOTE Katie!

Everyone gets the Argentina reference, right? Good for POTUS
