On Monday night of the Republican National Convention, Rep. Sean Duffy took the stage to re-affirm his support for Donald Trump and talk about the importance of party unity. Duffy has previously had very harsh words for the front-runner, and at this convention told audiences two very different stories:
What Sean Duffy said behind closed doors: "Some will say, I wish I had a different choice...I wish there was a different candidate!”
Despite Duffy's unclear stance on his party's nominee, the two share an obsession of being in the limelight and trying to relive the days of their TV stardom. Duffy has no interest in doing what is best for Wisconsin or the country, he is only interested in grabbing headlines and tv soundbites, with little concern for what he is actually saying.
The convention is far from the first time Duffy has been two-faced with different audiences.
Duffy previously said about Trump: "When you ask [Trump] questions about, ‘How do we make America safe again? How do I grow our economy? How do I bring jobs back home? How do I fix healthcare?' he doesn’t have any ideas."
But Duffy has also said: And I think a businessman who has created hundreds of thousands of jobs for Americans knows better how to restructure the tax code and restructure regulations to let business thrive.
"Like too many Republicans, Sean Duffy is putting party before country. Duffy's support for Donald Trump is dangerous for Wisconsin," Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesman Brandon Weathersby said on Friday. "No one really knows what he thinks because Sean Duffy tailors his comments to ensure peak pandering for each audience. But he should know he isn't on reality tv anymore - his words and actions have consequences for our state and country. The people of Wisconsin's 7th district deserve to know where Sean Duffy stands in his support of Donald Trump."
