Even Trump-backing Republicans are bracing for a massive loss — and it’s only August

Published

on

Normally, you don’t start to see elected officials admitting that their presidential candidate is toast until late September or early October.

This year, it’s happening in August.

The Hill has done some interviews with several Congressional Republicans who all say that Hillary Clinton is very likely to win the presidential election in November.

“I think it will be Hillary,” admitted one House GOP lawmaker who has endorsed Trump.

“If he continues the next 90 days like the last week, then he will lose big time,” said another Trump-backing GOP lawmaker.

Of course, if even Trump’s supporters are admitting that Trump looks doomed, you can only imagine how the Republicans who are still opposed to his candidacy are feeling.

“This is like a football game where you hate both teams,” one anti-Trump Republican told The Hill. “You root for a tie — and maybe some minor injuries.”

That said, some anti-Trump Republicans are hoping that a Trump loss will actually force the party to reexamine itself and implement needed reforms.

“Another autopsy will occur and the next time I hope lessons will be learned,” Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.) told The Hill.

2020 Election

Your election angst is real: Trump’s gonna cheat and it could be total hell

Published

During the presidential campaign of 1988, "Saturday Night Live's" Dana Carvey played then-Vice President George H.W. Bush as a lovable oddball and Jon Lovitz portrayed Democratic candidate Michael Dukakis as an emotionally detached technocrat, musing out loud during a debate, "I can't believe I'm losing to this guy."

Even though it was a comedy sketch, that line has been thrown in Democrats' faces ever since as an example of their arrogant elitism and failure to understand Real America. Don't you know that the average voter wants a president they can have a beer with, not some egghead know-it-all?

Trump preparing to question legitimacy of results if he loses 2020 election: Michigan lieutenant governor

Published

on

Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist, D-Mich., has accused President Donald Trump of sowing doubt about November's election months before voting even begins in an attempt to question the "legitimacy of an election that he is looking to lose."

Gilchrist criticized Trump for pushing debunked conspiracy theories about voting by mail after the state sent absentee ballot applications to every registered voter amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"I think that the president wants to set us up so that there can be a conversation about the legitimacy of an election that he is looking to lose," Gilchrist told MSNBC over the weekend. "That is a really unfortunate thing. That's not how we do democracy here in the United States, and we need to be ready to respond to that forcefully."

Trump economic task force member once called minimum wage law the ‘Black Teenage Unemployment Act’

Published

on

Art Laffer, a member of President Donald Trump's coronavirus economic task force who last year was honored with a Presidential Medal of Freedom, once referred to the federal minimum wage law as the "Black Teenage Unemployment Act" on Fox News while he attempted to claim that it made "no sense whatsoever."

"The minimum wage makes no sense whatsoever to me," Laffer told host Jenna Lee on the since-canceled Fox News show "Happening Now." "Honestly, it's just the teenage — 'Black Teenage Unemployment Act.' And this is the very group that we need to have jobs — not be put out of work because of a minimum wage. So, I'm very much in favor of, at least for teenagers, getting rid of the minimum wage."
