Republicans who don’t:

    Former First Son Donald Trump Jr. harangued Republicans for their willingness to “lose gracefully” and praised his father for showing “You don’t have to do that, ou can actually push back” — just 50 days after a violent pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol,  injured more than a hundred police officers, resulting in five deaths. Appearing on Fox News’ Hannity, the former president’s eldest son and potential political protegé rhetorically opened fire on his own party, accusing them of lacking the fortitude to win elections like his father — who lost the popular vote in both of his presidential races and presided over two straight House defeats and a Democratic takeover in the Senate in 2020. “The reality is, every time the left gets power, they overreach,” the Fox host claimed. ” It’s a matter of how much freedom we lose in the meantime. They seem to be going for all of it in record...
    Savannah Rychcik February 16, 2021 0 Comments The ladies of “The View” are tearing into Republicans who voted to acquit Former President Donald Trump. “It was outrageous that he was acquitted… Basically you have a party… that only cares if you salute to the leader and look at how they’re censuring the people who voted to not acquit,” co-host Joy Behar said. She noted Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) received a letter from his family following his call for Trump’s removal and Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) is being censured. “Censured means you’re getting a reprimand. What did they do? A reprimand means you did something wrong,” Behar continued. Watch her comments below: .@JoyVBehar calls it “outrageous” former Pres.

    CNN host Don Lemon called out the hypocrisy on the part of Republicans praising and quoting Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in glowing tweets on his holiday, when they have also stood by as Donald Trump pushed racist lies like the Birther conspiracy or helped incited a violent mob to storm the Capitol. In a long monologue during his Monday night show in the MLK holiday, Lemon began by playing disturbing footage of the pro-Trump insurrectionists invading Congress and saying the events on January 6th were “threatening our democracy.” “On the day we remember the life and work of Martin Luther King,” Lemon noted, “even as the current president, until Wednesday at noon anyway, deliberately tried to divide us. That as more and more of the Republicans who supported this president, who stood by him through everybody racist attack, even as he tried to disenfranchise millions of Americans, many of them voters of color. Those Republicans...
    MSNBC’s Chris Hayes opened his show Friday night with a direct message to Republicans who have “twisted themselves into knots” to not condemn President Donald Trump more forcefully up to this point. Hayes said he’s not talking about “hardcore Trump fans” or Republicans who already openly despise Trump, but about “institutional Republicans” and others who don’t like Trump but have avoided criticizing him more directly because “the base really loves him.” “I think I have a sense of the bargain you have made with yourself. How you have justified what you’ve done the last few years. And I genuinely get it. Life is complicated. There’s no such thing as purity, we all make compromises in this world. You have told yourself that if Trump is going to be president, ‘isn’t it better that I work in my small sphere to make this thing as good as it can be?'” Hayes...
    Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) on Wednesday slammed Republican colleagues who refused to use the metal detectors installed outside the House chamber following last week’s deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol. “To my colleagues who won't go through the metal detectors: Have you ever had a job before?” Bush tweeted. “If you work at McDonald’s and you don’t wear the uniform, you don’t work that day. If you won’t abide by the rules of this job, go find another one.” To my colleagues who won't go through the metal detectors:Have you ever had a job before? If you work at McDonald’s and you don’t wear the uniform, you don’t work that day. If you won’t abide by the rules of this job, go find another one https://t.co/rPO2xek1iB— Cori Bush (@CoriBush) January 13, 2021 Bush earlier in the day had voiced similar sentiments on MSNBC's “All in With Chris Hayes,”  saying “If they won’t...
    When a pro-Trump mob stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) was among a group of a few dozen lawmakers and staff on the floor of the U.S. House, feet away from insurrectionists pounding at the chamber doors in an attempt to violently overthrow the federal government. In the nick of time, that group was rushed to a secure room, where they waited out the rest of attack. Hours later, the House returned to the same place to finish the job of certifying the Electoral College results, where Connolly watched as 121 of his Republican colleagues forged ahead to vote in favor of overturning the 2020 election results—precisely what the mob was threatening Congress to do. For the Virginia Democrat, and many of his colleagues, that is a vote, and a day, those Republicans cannot come back from. “I don’t see how we return to business...
    President Trump's son Eric declared that he would work to remove from office House and Senate Republicans who fail to join his father's bid to challenge the election, fanning the flames of a fight that the president said he is determined to wage. Eric Trump's threat suggests a post-Trump landscape defined by intraparty strife, pitting the president and his base of supporters against lawmakers in their own party. "I will personally work to defeat every single Republican Senator / Congressman who doesn’t stand up against this fraud — they will be primaried in their next election and they will lose," he said in a tweet. The threat to lawmakers draws power from the president's fervent base. Trump's political operation has spearheaded a massive fundraising drive since the November election, with an influx of donations headed straight to the president's new leadership PAC, established on Nov. 9. A text...
    On the heels of another controversial Donald Trump rally on Monday night, CNN's Don Lemon is growing more irate. Lemon took aim at Republican leaders who are parroting Trump's baseless election fraud claims, while failing to apply the same logic behind those claims to their own successful electoral races. 'Why do they believe that? Because you have been telling them that,' Lemon said about people not trusting the election results based off those claims. Don Lemon spent part of his show on Monday night blasting Republican leaders Donald Trump, meanwhile, spent part of his Monday night hosting a rally in Georgia 'Of course, they’re going to believe it. If you would stop telling them that and start telling them the truth, then maybe they would believe the truth, that the election was not stolen and it was a clean election, according to everyone who has investigated, most of...
    CNN’s Don Lemon erupted on Monday night over President Donald Trump’s increasingly more absurd election conspiracy theories, some of which he regurgitated during his Monday night rally in Georgia. Lemon briefly spoke with Chris Cuomo about Trump’s baseless claims and how Republicans are backing him up despite no evidence of widespread fraud. Lemon was astounded by how Republicans from states Trump is contesting are cool with objecting to the results… but conveniently saying it only applied to the presidential election and not their congressional races. He also pointed out the circular logic (or self-licking ice cream cone, if you will) of telling people not to trust the election results, only to then tout how many people don’t trust the election results: “Why do they believe that? Because you have been telling them that! Of course, they’re going to believe it. If you would stop telling them that and start telling...
    HOLLYWOOD liberal George Clooney slammed "carnival barker" Donald Trump and ripped Republicans who have stood by him. Clooney's remarks came during an interview with The New York Times, where he referred to Republican Ted Cruz as being a "yutz" for sticking by Trump after he insulted his wife and his father. 5George Clooney slammed Donald Trump and ripped Republican members who have continued to stand by himCredit: Getty Images "I mean, Ted Cruz, think about what a yutz this guy is!" Clooney told the Times. "I don't care what your political view is: If a guy said that my wife was ugly and my father killed Kennedy, there is no way in the world you could have me come back and say, 'I'll defend you.'" The Hollywood star continued by ripping other GOP members, "Every single one of these guys have aspirations for bigger things - Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz,...
    The Washington Post on Thursday promoted creating a political litmus test by asking Republicans three deciding questions to test whether they had wholehearted faith in the recent election process, leading many to note that the paper has never held Democrats to similar lines of questioning in the past. The Post, which frequently undermined the legitimacy of Trump’s presidency due to the unfounded Russia hoax, set out to demand Republicans answer the proposed questions in order to determine the Republican’s legitimacy. “The Post is asking every Republican member of Congress the same three questions today. We will report back their answers,” the Post wrote. The Post is asking every Republican member of Congress the same three questions today. We will report back their answers.

    Democrat firebrand Alexandria Ocasio Cortez hit back at those who shamed her for wearing $14,000 worth of clothing in her Vanity Fair cover shoot as she confirmed that she didn't keep any of the suits. The congresswoman told Republicans to 'get yourselves together' and accused them of trying to 'willfully act stupid' by calling her a hypocrite.  She also joked that they could look as good as her if they 'don't be racist'.   The 31-year-old had been the target of criticism over the expensive outfits she was wearing in the shoot, despite her own condemnation of politicians who are beholden to Wall Street.  She also received backlash for the lengthy interview in which she called Trump a 'motherf****r' for paying only $750 in federal income tax in 2018 and labeled him a 'visionary racist'.   'Republicans are Very Mad (again) about my appearance. This time they’re mad that I look...
    During an interview with KTNV Channel 13 Las Vegas on Friday, 2020 Democratic presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden said that viewers who were asking about his position on packing the courts “are probably Republicans who don’t want me continuing to talk about what they’re doing to the court right now.” Anchor Ross DiMattei asked, “I’ve got to ask you about packing the courts. And I know that you said yesterday you aren’t going to answer the question until after the election. But this is the number one thing that I’ve been asked about from viewers in the past couple of days.” Biden responded, “Well, you’ve been asked by the viewers who are probably Republicans who don’t want me continuing to talk about what they’re doing to the court right now.” DiMattei then asked Biden if voters deserve to know what his position is, and Biden responded that they don’t....
    The Republican and Democratic National Conventions put the spotlight on President Trump and nominee Joe Biden but pollster Frank Luntz told Fox News’ “MediaBuzz” that neither party did enough to address future policy. “It's very easy to define what the Republicans are against,” he said. “And you can say that they're for freedom, for personal responsibility, for accountability. But that's not specifics.” Luntz said during the DNC, Biden did not speak about policy at all, and at the RNC, Trump only spoke about policy over the last four years. POLLSTER: BIDEN DENOUNCES KENOSHA VIOLENCE AFTER CAMPAIGN 'MISJUDGED HOW IMPORTANT IT WAS TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE' “They did not do an effective job at explaining what Donald Trump is going to do if he's awarded the election,” he said. “The Democrats did an excellent job in prosecuting Donald Trump as a person. And so I think that this election is going to be Trump the...
    President Donald Trump said that Republican senators who do not support him will lose their elections during an interview with Fox Business on Thursday. Trump told “Mornings with Maria” host Maria Bartiromo that “a couple people that aren’t as supportive” could create a problem for the Senate if they continue to distance themselves from the president, The Hill reported. “We’re fighting very hard in the Senate. I’ll be honest, the Senate is tough. We have a couple people that aren’t as supportive of Trump as they should be and those people are going to lose their elections,” Trump said, according to The Hill. “The ones that don’t support, and I’m just talking, take a look … you have a few people that want to be cute, and those people are going to lose their elections. And that’s a problem for the Senate,” he continued. PHOENIX, AZ – FEBRUARY 19: Sen....
    Donald Trump said Thursday that he fears Republicans could lose their majority in the Senate in November due to GOP senators being 'cute' in not supporting his presidency. 'We're fighting very hard in the Senate. I'll be honest, the Senate is tough,' Trump told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo, one of his biggest media supporters, during a call-in interview. 'We have a couple of people that aren't as supportive of Trump as they should be and those people are going to lose their elections.' 'If they don't support Trump, they lose their elections. It's a very simple element,' he assured. Trump signaled Thursday morning, however, that he has more confidence in the House taking back their majority from 'stone cold crazy Nancy Pelosi.' 'The ones that don't support – and you have a few people that want to be cute, and I think they're going to lose their elections and...
    Vulnerable Senate Republicans up for reelection were quick to dodge questions about Donald Trump's Thursday morning suggestion that perhaps the country should "[d]elay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???" Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst, who's fighting tooth and nail to keep her seat, curtly responded: "not answering any questions." Majority "Leader" Mitch McConnell jilted reporters entirely with a nonresponse. South Carolina senator and avid Trump bootlicker Lindsey Graham managed to squeeze out some weak-kneed opposition, saying: “I don’t think that’s a particularly good idea.” We are on the slide to fascism, folks, and any Republican who can't take a decisive stand against Trump's suggestion is a traitor to American ideals, democracy, and the country.  Sens. Cory Gardner of Colorado, Susan Collins of Maine, Martha McSally of Arizona, Thom Tillis of North Carolina, and David Perdue of Georgia are all likely in a bunker somewhere drawing straws over who has to...
    Former Governor Mike Huckabee (R-AR) expressed his shock and dismay Sunday morning that several prominent Republicans will reportedly not support President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. “Well I don’t know if it’s true because it’s in The New York Times,” Huckabee snarked on Fox & Friends Weekend, claiming that the paper is “wrong more than they’re right.”  “But if that’s true and if you have people who were nominated, and in the case of President Bush actually elected to be president by Republicans, and they will no longer support the Republican nominee who went through the process and got elected,” Huckabee said, “then I’m going to be not just unhappy, I’m going to be livid.”  He went on to say that he and his fellow conservatives “didn't all agree on some of the policies of Bush or McCain or Romney” but “when it came down to it” they knew...
