Abbott Campaign Has Huffines Supporter Removed From Trump Rally
President Trump held a rally in Conroe, Texas on Saturday where it’s estimated over 100,000 were in attendance. Several politicians and others spoke before President Trump.
Those who spoke included:
Former Rep. Mark Keough
Mayor of the city of Gonzales, Connie Kacir
Donald Trump Jr.
GOP Chairman Matt Rinaldi
Senator Dawn Buckingham
Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller
Attorney General Ken Paxton
Lt. Gov Dana Patrick
Gov Greg Abbott
But 1 individual on the list above had a problem with an attendee at the rally.
Pictured above in the orange Don Huffines shirt is Jordan Brown. Brown is a Huffines for Governor staffer and Trump supporter. Brown, like many of the attendees, decided to wear a shirt representing a political candidate he supported while being seated in the bleachers behind the podium of the event.
Throughout the event Brown cheered and applauded like every other person in attendance. It wasn’t until the 9th speaker, Texas Governor Greg Abbott, was about to take the stage that Brown was suddenly approached by security.
At first he was told by security just to remain seated, then another security guard came and told Brown, along with another individual wearing a Huffines shirt, that both had to leave the area immediately.
Brown and the other individual were escorted out of the bleacher area, to the very back of the Trump rally, practically the exit, and told that they were no longer allowed in the front area.
Free speech is something that is generally considered a priority amongst Republicans, and Brown expressed support of a GOP candidate at an event where is was quite appropriate to do so. This didn’t fly with Abbott.
This wouldn’t be the first time Governor Abbott took action against free speech, and we imagine it won’t be his last.

Governor Abbott entered the stage to a heavy mixture of boos and cheers.
Some booing audible on livestream as @GregAbbott_TX is introduced at Trump rally in Conroe, followed by Abbott video touting his Trump endorsement. Abbott GOP critics had been urged to attend and make their voices heard.

In the span of 45 seconds, Gov Abbott proceeds to say “Donald J Trump” six times.
Greg Abbott realizes that the only way to keep the MAGA crowd from booing him is to just keep saying, ‘Donald J Trump’ over and over again. So he does. pic.twitter.com/wzQ3csB5cE

Over the course of Abbott’s 6 minute speech, Abbott said the words “Donald J Trump” 27 times.
Gov. @GregAbbott_TX said Donald Trump’s name 27 times in a less than 6 minute speech at Trump’s rally in Conroe tonight.

Abbott likely realized that repeating President Trump’s name was the only way to keep the crowd from booing him for the entirety of his speech.
Abbott faces several challengers in the primary for Governor including Don Huffines, Allen West, Chad Prather, and a Rick Perry.
Texans have grown unhappy with Abbott for many reasons, including his failure to actually secure our border, protect Texans from business that force vaccines on their employees, and protect children from gender modification.
Texans will soon vote to decide if they’re going to continue supporting Abbott’s empty promises or elect a new governor to provide actual change and results.
President Trump later entered the stage to roaring applause where he threw MAGA hats out to the crowd.
Trump proceeded to thank many of the Texas politicians including those who spoke earlier, former Texas Governor and Secretary of Energy Rick Perry, athletes, OAN, and Mike Lindell.
Noticeably absent from a shout-out was Dan Crenshaw. Crenshaw has been recently taking criticism from his constituents for refusing to assist January 6 protestors and comparing Jesus to the fictional character, Superman. We have also been provided with information that Crenshaw asked to speak with President Trump and was denied the opportunity.
Current Revolt was on site reporting on happenings as well as talking to attendees and CR readers. Current Revolt wouldn’t be caught dead in the dirty press pool with the rest of the fake news media so, being the Texas Newspaper of Record, we were graciously provided seats next to the podium.
(Editors Note: Thank you very much for the seats!)
CR also had the opportunity to chillax with former Gov Rick Perry and we can confirm he’s a cool, down to Earth, dude.
