An intrepid conservative citizen journalist has once again caught a Democrat red-handed. This time, it’s Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) who was caught on video scurrying down the stairs of Congress like a startled mouse. Congressman Ronny Jackson (R-TX) shared the clip, adding his own colorful commentary and mocking Tester’s weight, calling him a “fat, two-fingered buffoon” who surprisingly can move fast. Jackson also took the opportunity to remind Tester that his days in the Senate are numbered.

In the video, we see Senator Tester running for the nearest exit while his aides try to shield him from the cameraman’s questions about his support for Palestinian activists. The young man persists, asking why Tester voted to allow mass boycotts of Israeli products by antisemitic activists and to allocate American taxpayer dollars to fund Hamas. But Tester dodges the questions and descends multiple flights of stairs, making a hasty escape.
It’s no surprise that Tester is desperate to avoid answering these questions. As an endangered red-state Democrat facing reelection next year, he can’t afford to alienate his constituents who strongly support Israel. Recent polls show Tester leading his Republican opponent by just four points, with a significant percentage of undecided voters. With such a slim margin, every misstep could cost him the election. Tester should slow down and appreciate his time in the Senate because his days may be numbered.
Senator Tester’s predicament is emblematic of the larger divide within the Democratic Party when it comes to Israel. While some Democrats, like Congressman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and the Squad, openly sympathize with Hamas and refuse to denounce their deadly attacks, there are still many Americans who support Israel’s right to defend itself against terrorism. It’s clear that Tester is trying to tiptoe along this tightrope to maintain his support back home. But with former President Donald Trump holding a massive lead over President Biden in Montana, it’s clear that Tester’s position is precarious in the face of a Democratic Party that is becoming increasingly anti-Israel.
In a recent primetime address, President Biden pledged new federal spending of up to $100 million to support Israel’s ground invasion of Gaza. While some may argue that this is a necessary move to protect American interests in the region, it’s worth considering whether this funding will end up in the wrong hands. We’ve seen how American taxpayer dollars can be misused and even end up supporting terrorists. It’s important for conservatives to remain vigilant and hold our elected officials accountable for where our tax dollars are going.
In the end, Senator Tester’s dash for the exit only highlights the difficult position he finds himself in as a Democrat in a red state. With his Republican opponent, Tim Sheehy, gaining momentum and polls showing strong support for President Trump, it’s clear that supporting Israel is a winning position for conservatives. It’s time for Tester to stop running and start answering the important questions about his voting record. Montanans deserve a senator who will stand up for their values, not someone who ducks and dodges when the tough questions are asked.
