Donald Trump is just racking up the endorsements. First he got Chris Christie, then he got Jeff Sessions, and now he has Louisiana’s own Troy Hebert supporting him.
Hebert blasted out the press release on Friday. Last year, Hebert was Bobby Jindal’s liason to the Legislature where he was seen as ineffective at best. Hebert also recently stepped down as ATC Commissioner before discovering that underage drinking goes on in the French Quareter. Now he’s running for the U.S. Senate as an independent.
Here’s the press release:
“America needs a proven businessman to tackle a $19 trillion dollar debt, create good jobs and run government like a business. Trump not only has the experience to do these things, but he has the guts to take on the establishment that got us into this mess. His stance on securing our borders and standing up for us against unfair trade practices that cost American jobs just makes common sense.”
“If I am elected to the U.S. Senate, I will fight alongside President Trump to reign in government and make it work for the people again instead of us working for the government,” Hebert said.
“Some candidates in this Senate race won’t pick a horse because they are afraid it may hurt their election. I think those of us who have had enough of the same old politicians running our country into the ground can’t afford to not take a strong stand on who will lead it. The politicians have had their turn, it is time to elect real business people,” Hebert added.
The former state Senator, who was known as “Pretty Boy” at the Capital, is trying to hitch his wagon to Trump. He knows Trump is going to win Louisiana big on Saturday and he wants to ride his coattails in November. We don’t see that happening for many reasons.
Oh and we forgot to mention, Hebert has a reputation of nepotism and corruption.
If someone like Troy Hebert thinks that Donald Trump would make a good president, that should give any serious person pause before voting for Trump.
