Republican strategist Ana Navarro, slammed former President Donald Trump campaign aide Jason Miller, over supporting the downward direction of the Republican Party, during an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Wednesday.
Navarro said it was sad that the party embraced white supremacist such as Corey Stewart.
“It’s a sad time. It’s a time when we see Republicans attracting folks like pedophiles, attracting folks like neo-Nazis. Actually, some actual Nazis that have run and are running as candidates. So, you know, it’s a hard time. I will tell you it’s a sad time,” she said.
Navarro continued: “MAGA is basically equivalent to Trump. I think it’s a little more nuanced and a little more complicated than Trump or not Trump. You know, I think there’s certain different factions in the Republican Party when it comes to policy. What you’ve got is a group of folks in congress, a lot of them in the Republican party, who are quaking in their boots. They are cowards. They are afraid to speak up because they are afraid to run the same fate, to face the same fate as a Mark Sanford or a Jeff Flake.
Miller defended President Trump by saying he was a unifier.
“President Trump connected with those people and that’s why he whipped everyone in the primaries. That’s why he was able to reach out beyond the Republican base,” Miller said.
McConnell under pressure to wrap up Trump impeachment trial quickly without alienating wavering GOP senators
According to a report from Politico, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is under pressure from the White House and some of his Republican colleagues to move quickly to acquit Donald Trump by speeding up his impeachment trial while not upsetting some wavering GOP lawmakers who are fearful for their reputations in an election year.
The report notes that a Trump acquittal is a foregone conclusion, with GOP lawmakers admitting as much.
“The question is going to come to ‘Have you heard enough to make a decision or do you want witnesses?’ If people say, ‘We’re ready to vote,’ we’re going to vote right then,” explained Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY).
Are Trump and his circle manipulating the markets for personal gain? Here’s the evidence
Trump will not be convicted by the Republicans in the Senate for his crimes.
The public evidence is damning. There is no evidence that could possibly exonerate him. Trump is publicly bragging about committing crimes against the Constitution and the American people. The Republican Party and its propaganda news media have decided to ignore reality and fully immerse themselves in TrumpWorld. They have pledged total loyalty to him and no evidence will move them. The Republicans and their news media and public are authoritarian lemmings.
SNL imagines Alan Dershowitz and Mitt Romney in hell during impeachment trial sketch
The skit began with Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) meeting with Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) about impeachment.
They were then joined by Alan Dershowitz (played by SNL alum Jon Lovitz), who spoke of his previous clients, Jeff Epstein (played by Adam Driver), O.J. Simpson and Claus von Bülow.
But Dershowitz suffered a heart attack and met the devil in hell, where he was reunited with Epstein.
“Yes, hello, everyone, it’s I, Alan Dershowitz,” he proclaimed. “It’s wonderful to be here. Because I’m not welcome anywhere else. There’s a lot of haters out there -- for no good reason. But like I said to my client and dear friend Jeffrey Epstein, haters gonna hate!”
