GOP Senate candidate bitterly attacks his own parents after they give maximum donation to his Dem rival

Published

on

Wisconsin Republican Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson on Monday penned an angry editorial for Fox News in which he bitterly complained that his parents, who are two lifelong Democrats, are refusing to endorse his campaign.

Nicholson, who is running against incumbent Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) this fall, wrote that his parents’ decision to support Baldwin over their own son was emblematic of liberals’ supposed “intolerance” for dissenting viewpoints.

The candidate seemed particularly upset that his parents not only endorsed Baldwin, but sent the maximum allowable donation to her campaign.

“They decided to make the maximum contribution to my Democrat opponent in my campaign for U.S. Senate in Wisconsin, an intentional personal blow that made headlines across the country,” he complained. “It was deliberate — and it is a true representation of the intolerance of a political philosophy that stands on the false platform of tolerance.”

Nicholson went on to claim that he does not “enjoy talking about this highly personal experience,” despite the fact that he wrote an entire op-ed for Fox News about it. He says that he decided to talk about what has happened to him as a way to let other supposedly wary Democrats know that it’s OK for them to leave the party.

“Many others who have decided to leave the Democrat Party have also likely paid a personal price for their decision,” he wrote. “And others are not yet ready to leave because of the judgement and ridicule they will undoubtedly receive from other Democrats — whether family, friends, or co-workers. Unfortunately, their fear is founded.”

In response, the crowd began to shout "Send her back!"

Trump allowed the crowd to continue the chant for a full 12 seconds before continuing his speech.

The next day, amidst criticism that he was riling up his fans to dangerous levels, Trump claimed that he had indeed shut down the chant, in direct contradiction to the video. New York Times journalist Peter Baker reported Trump's claim on Twitter.

White House aides fear Trump believes House vote against impeachment means it’s never going to happen: report

Published

A proposal to start impeachment hearings that failed in the House on Wednesday led Donald Trump to optimistically proclaim that his presidency is safe at his North Carolina rally last night. But his proclamation has some White House officials worried the president really believes he is out of the woods.

According to a report at Politico, close aides to the president worry that his comment that "we have all this [impeachment] behind us," may be based on an unfounded notion by Trump about how Congress works.

Speaking at his campaign rally in Greenville, N.C., Trump boasted to the crowd, "I just heard that the United States House of Representatives has overwhelmingly voted to kill the most ridiculous project I’ve ever been involved in: the resolution -- how stupid is that -- on impeachment. I want to thank those Democrats because many of them voted for us, the vote was a totally lopsided 332-95-1.”
