McHenry County Republicans gathered in Johnsburg at the Moose Lodge to watch the Presidential Debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

I had a family affair and couldn’t make it.

Look at the tee shirt one of his supporters was wearing.

Anyone know why the combination of Flavin and Trump?

  1. Flavin seems willing to say or do anything to get elected. What a joke of a campaign.

    He also posts and advertises pictures of himself with a Clinton delegate.

    Republicans wont be fooled on election day.

  2. Trump is the only choice for President and Kenneally is the only choice for State’s Attorney.

    Both are the law and order candidates!!!

    Career prosecutor vs. career dui defense lawyer.

    This race will not even be close.

  3. Not a lot of happy looking faces watching Don the Con and rightfully so.

    The bar was set low and he still tripped over it!

  4. DMAC?

    What’s to be happy with about this?

    A total con job and a bread and circuses unreality has nothing to do with anyone’s future.

  5. The reason for the Flavin-Trump T-shirts is simple: Killary is goin’ down!

    Why not tie oneself to Trump in McHenry County which will go overwhelmingly Trump.

    Yeah, I know, it’s a bit unorthodox to say the least for such party switching, but Geesh poor Flavin has a big problem: He’s got a big, fat “DEMOCRAT” ID next to his name.

    BTW: I’d be VERY surprised if Flavin was a Franks supporter …. Jacko has managed to alienated half the Demo-ratic Party in McHenry Co. through his flim/flam and uber-egotistical stunts and attitudes … “ME First!

    All Must Bow to the Tetrarch Franks!

    Pay homage to ME, the Great McHenry County Ozymandius!”

  6. A lot of people don’t vote straight party line and Trump has a lot of support with Democrats.

    Trump isn’t exactly running as a conservative — more of a populist really.

    By the way, did anybody catch Chad Koppie?

    I heard the US Senate candidate was supposed to give a speech at the Johnsburg event.

  7. Why was Andy ‘Gun-Grabber’ Glab in attendance?

    To cheer on his idol Hillary?

  8. So, I’ve been doing a little research on Flavin of the Month after he crashed a Republican event in the disguise of a Trump supporter.

    Has anyone gone to Flavin of the Month’s personal Facebook page.

    A quick look puts an end to his “I heart trump” charade.

    Trump stands for law and order and supports of our brave police officers.

    On January 11, 2013, Flavin of the Month posted an article on Facebook stating,

    “one very striking feature of life in the States in recent years has been an appalling hypertrophy of the enforcement and incarceration sectors: there are more and more cops every year, they’re more and more heavily armed, they’re more and more arrogant, overbearing, self-indulgent and unaccountable…”

    On August 21, 2015, Flavin of the Month wrote on Facebook,

    “yes police officers having to little power has been a major problem in the American justice system, said no one ever (who knew what they were talking about).”

    Trump is as strong supporter of the Second Amendment and our right to carry arms.

    On December 30, 2015, Flavin of the Month posted on Facebook,

    “America wasn’t intended to be a country where everyone needs a gun, but rather one in which nobody does.”

    Trump stands for free market and capitalism.

    Flavin of the Month in my opinion appears to write more on the Socialist side of things.

    On February 8, 2015, Flavin of the Month wrote on Facebook,

    “socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited group, but as potential future millionaires.”

    Trump is a Republican and loves this Country.

    Flavin of the Month is just a liberal doing a Steven Colbert type impersonation.

    On September 10, 2012, Flavin wrote on Facebook:

    “So the answer to the question, what percentage of idiots are there in the Republican party? Is 15%, which is surprisingly low.”
    On November 1, 2015, Flavin of the Month posted on Facebook: “super hoping that a Republican wins next November. Reason: Tired of people who borderline can’t read blaming Obama or liberals for anything they don’t like.”

    On May 7, 2012, Flavin posted on Facebook:

    “Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public

    Flavin of the Month is no more a Trump supporter than he is a legitimate candidate for States Attorney.

    Do not be fooled on Election Day.

  9. This place is not johnsburgs moose lodge it is the McHenry Moose Lodge so maybe next time you will get that corrected.
