I guess we can declare a winner in the War of Who’s Trumpiest.
The orange one himself, President Donald Trump, weighed in on the Republican primary runoff for Georgia governor this afternoon, using his preferred mode of communication to express his preference for Secretary of State Brian Kemp over Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle.
Brian Kemp is running for Governor of the great state of Georgia. The Primary is on Tuesday. Brian is tough on crime, strong on the border and illegal immigration. He loves our Military and our Vets and protects our Second Amendment. I give him my full and total endorsement.

Presumably this means Kemp has the endorsement of Vladimir Putin as well.
We’ll find out July 24 whether Trump’s endorsement of Kemp, er, trumps Gov. Nathan Deal’s endorsement of Cagle.
If so, Cagle still has a chance. Perhaps Trump meant to say he doesn’t give Kemp his full and total endorsement.
