GOP strategist warns of major Republican midterms losses due to Trump’s ‘bullying, nastiness and tweeting’

Published

In a rare show of bipartisanship, Republicans and Democrats agree: all indicators point to major GOP losses in the 2018 midterms.

CQ-Roll Call reported Tuesday that polling and fundraising numbers could lead to the 30-45 Congressional wins for Democrats — and those early benchmarks could “paint a dangerous picture for the president and his party.”

President Donald Trump’s voting bloc has, according to current polling, seen “a modest, but significant, erosion in support,” and although the GOP appears to retain control of “men and whites without a college degree,” Democrats have seen a “large generic ballot advantage among younger voters, women, whites with at least a college degree and voters age 65 and older.”

Unaffiliated and independent voters, according to a veteran Republican strategist that spoke to Roll Call, may pose more danger in 2018 than they have in previous years as well.

“They’re tired of the drama,” the strategist said.

Another longtime Republican campaign operative told Roll Call that anti-Trump sentiment among women is soon to come back to haunt the Grand Old Party.

“We knew single women hated [the Republican Party],” the GOP operative said. “We couldn’t do anything about that. But married women were different. We figured out how to deal with them by talking about pocketbook issues. But now college-educated women hate us. Even with the current economy. It’s the bullying, the nastiness, the tweeting. It’s all about Trump’s behavior.”

Maddow destroys ‘bad faith’ complaints about impeachment from Republican Trump supporters

Published

on

The host of "The Rachel Maddow Show" on Friday blasted "bad faith" arguments from Republicans about the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Maddow recounted the process complaints by Republicans -- each of which has disappeared.

"After going through all of that, they now have unveiled a new objection as to why President Trump cannot actually be subject to this impeachment proceeding, a new noble stand they're taking for fairness and the American way -- they have rolled it out with our friends at the Fox News channel," Maddow said.

She played a clip of former GOP Speaker Newt Gingrich on Fox News.

Everyone is baffled by Trump’s rambling rant about flushing toilets ’10 times, 15 times’

Published

on

Another day, another truly baffling series of words coming from President Donald Trump’s mouth.

Speaking at a White House meeting on Friday about small business and regulation, Trump went on one of his trademark riffs, touching on a number of subjects with the clarity of a muddy puddle. He seemed to be referring to a series of complaints that have been raised over the years about various consumer product regulations (a favorite topic of Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky) but without making a coherent point about any of them.

Read the whole stream of consciousness rant to get a sense of what it was like:
