It is soon after a disappointing election season and one can expect fingers to be pointed and all but some of this is bad form. There have been calls to remove McConnell and McCarthy from their leadership posts and I am inclined to agree. McCarthy has all but promised not to impeach Biden should the GOP take the House and McConnell pulled funding from several races in which more money might have made the difference. What bugs me about McConnell is how thick he is with China and goes soft whenever it comes up. I don’t hear him speaking up more loudly about the open border in the south nor the flood of fentanyl.
BTW, I am convinced that the DNC is working with China and the Mexican cartels to keep the order open and the flood of fentanyl flowing. The DNC has to be taking in a cut of the monumental profits from that operation. Nothing else can possibly explain the complete and total inaction by the President and the democrat-controlled government despite 300 Americans dying of opiate overdoes every single day. It would be the perfect operation to be run by Hunter Biden, but one could easily think he’d be more involved in younger child trafficking.
But most troubling is Donald. Trump has unleashed a number of questionable attacks. You could dismiss the first one as a novelty, but it’s continued and they’re getting more and more squirrelly.
Donald Trump took credit for Ron DeSantis’ rising political career and blasted Fox, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Post for embracing the Florida governor, while blaming the GOP’s subpar midterm performance on the ex-president.
In a long-winded statement sent out by his PAC Thursday evening, Trump pointed out that the trio of News Corp media brands are ‘all in for Governor Ron DeSanctimonious’ who he called ‘an average REPUBLICAN Governor with great Public Relations.’
Trump suggested that DeSantis’ 19-plus point breeze to reelection Tuesday was helped by the fact that the Florida governor didn’t have to shut his state down during the coronavirus pandemic because of the ‘SUNSHINE, where people from badly run States up North would go no matter who the Governor was, just like I did!’
“an average REPUBLICAN Governor with great Public Relations, who didn’t have to close up his State, but did, unlike other Republican Governors, whose overall numbers for a Republican, were just average—middle of the pack—including COVID, and who has the advantage of SUNSHINE,
Then it got really weird
‘I was all in for Ron, and he beat Gillum, but after the Race, when votes were being stolen by the corrupt Election process in Broward County, and Ron was going down ten thousand votes a day, along with now-Senator Rick Scott, I sent in the FBI and the U.S. Attorneys, and the ballot theft immediately ended, just prior to them running out of the votes necessary to win,’ said Trump.
‘I stopped his Election from being stolen…’
I find that hard to believe because Trump never fails to let anyone know what he does for them. But he wasn’t done. This was the oddest of all
‘Young Kin (now that’s an interesting take. Sounds Chinese, doesn’t it?) in Virginia couldn’t have won without me,’ he posted on Truth Social.
‘I Endorsed him, did a very big Trump Rally for him telephonically, got MAGA to Vote for him – or he couldn’t have come close to winning. But he knows that, and admits it. Besides, having a hard time with the Dems in Virginia – But he’ll get it done!’
The former president, clearly not pleased with Fox News’s coverage of DeSantis, recalled on social media the 2016 presidential election, when the network tried to stop him from winning the Republican primary.
“This is just like 2015 and 2016, a Media Assault (Collusion!), when Fox News fought me to the end until I won, and then they couldn’t have been nicer or more supportive,” he wrote, alluding to the attempt by the cable network to kneecap him in the 2016 Republican primaries.
“[I]t would be the most successful network in History,” Trump said. “Fox only made it because of me, Twitter only made it because of me, and even Facebook is now in the tubes, having lost almost $90 billion in value since I was taken off.”
“For me, Fox News was always gone, even in 2015-16 when I began my ‘journey,’ but now they’re really gone,” Trump wrote. “Such an opportunity for another media outlet to make an absolute fortune, and do good for America.”
It’s clear that Trump is envious of DeSantis and DeSantis’s growing popularity but these attacks are really counterproductive. They’ll only hurt both men and diminish Trump’s stature while giving fodder for ad hominem attacks from the left. Run on what you’ve done, not this. This is bad.
