Texas Republicans Elect Homophobic Doofus Who Says He’s ‘Trump on Steroids,’ Likes ‘Boobies’

As someone who follows politics living in the Austin, Texas area, I am embarrassed and ashamed that I hadn’t heard about Robert Morrow before John Oliver covered him for a few minutes on his HBO show Sunday night.



For those of you who didn’t watch Last Week Tonight on Sunday, Robert Morrow was just elected as the head of the Republican party in Travis County, Texas. Just for the record, Travis County is where Austin, Texas is located – the capital of Texas.

Oh and he’s probably one of the most vile, offensive, homophobic and possibly crazy people you’ll ever find.

As Oliver pointed out, Morrow considers himself “Donald Trump on steroids.” He also seems to think that just about everyone is a closeted homosexual, including Rick Perry, George W. Bush, Hillary Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Karl Rove. He’s also seemingly obsessed with sex and (as he puts it) “boobies” as many of his tweets are literally just pictures of attractive women with large breasts.

Nothing I say can accurately convey what a bottom-feeder this fool is, so I’ll just let him speak for himself. Here are a few of his tweets:

For good measure, here’s a screen shot of him retweeting former Grand Wizard of the KKK and white supremacist David Duke:

And those are just the ones that don’t make references to his “manhood,” perverted sexual acts or a whole host of extremely vile (typically sexually loaded) highly offensive rhetoric.



Mind you, this is a guy who was elected by Republican voters to lead the Republican party in the county that’s home to the capital of Texas.

Though Travis Country GOP officials are vowing to revolt against his victory and have disavowed that he represents the party.

Sure, it would be easy to dismiss Morrow as a fluke who was elected to a random position that’s mostly insignificant. But this is a guy who retweets Trump, thinks he would make a good president and fancies himself someone in the same mould as “The Donald.” And in a lot of ways he’s the “anti-establishment/GOP has sold out” type of person that Trump has also been as a candidate. While he’s clearly more absurd than the current GOP presidential frontrunner, the tone and attitude of both men are very similar.

Let’s not act as if this attitude within the conservative parts of our society is something new. Rush Limbaugh has been a huge influence on Republicans for decades while being openly sexist, racist, bigoted and preying on hate and fear. Then there’s always Ann Coulter, a one-woman hate group.

All that be said, I do have a question that I would like Republicans to answer: How many foul-mouthed sexist, bigoted racist fools like Morrow and Trump do Republican voters have to continue to support before these folks start representing the values of the party?

    I lived in Texas for years and it was nothing like it is now. So glad I left when I did. I’m sorry to see the state in the mess it’s in.

    I have family in Texas I’ll never visit because I dislike the conservative ignorance overzealous with pride over their red state. They live in a bubble thinking everyone is admiring their state but in reality most Americans outside of the South think Texas as a state for the insane and idiotic right wingers like Ted Cruz, Rick Perry and now this buffoon Morrow.

    you need to read some serious (non revisionist) history about the origins of the Republican party. They were the first “big tent” party, blending the early republicans with the “free land” movement. Their goal wasn’t democracy. They wanted to change the “small federal government” US democracy with its checks & balances, into an international empire building oligarchy that used warfare to make the wealthy into a new class of oligarchs. They wanted to be England.
