Conservative MSNBC guest says Kavanaugh is becoming a disaster for GOP in the suburbs

Published

on

Will the Republican Party’s bullish insistence on pushing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh through despite numerous credible allegations of sexual assault and what appears to be a pattern of lying hurt the GOP in November’s midterm elections?

Conservative guest Ashley Pratte said so on MSNBC on Saturday. Pratte called the hearings “a very dark day” for women and pointed to polling that shows the decision was a disaster.

“They did have an imagery problem when it came to women anyway,” she said. “A Fox News polls showed already opposing—among women, they were 10% more likely to believe Dr. Ford. Among suburban women, that number jumped up to 17 points higher. I think going into mid-terms here and after these testimonies those numbers will only grow.”

Pratte said that she was thankful for Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) standing up and demanding an investigation of the allegations by the FBI.

“I see it as something that needs to happen,” she said. “I fully applaud and support Senator Flake for coming out and doing this. He really showed he was willing to put principle over party and he has done this time and time again.”

MSNBC’s ‘demotion’ of ‘feckless’ Chuck Todd celebrated: ‘Hurray! More Nicolle, less Chuck’

Published

on

MSNBC host Chuck Todd was moved to an earlier timeslot where his show, "Meet the Press Daily," will likely earn lower ratings. Meanwhile, Nicolle Wallace seems to have been promoted to a two-hour timeslot leading into primetime.

Wallace, who has extensive experience in Washington, previously served in George W. Bush's White House until abandoning the GOP as the era of Trump came to power.

Todd has made several missteps where he's been unwilling to press GOP leaders who lie openly and obviously on camera.

George Conway blasts ‘blundering cheat’ Trump in new op-ed: ‘His name should live in infamy’

Published

on

Prominent conservative attorney George T. Conway III has written yet another Washington Post op-ed blasting President Donald Trump.

"If there’s one thing we know about President Trump, it’s that he lies and he cheats. Endlessly," Conway wrote. "And shamelessly. But still, mostly, incompetently."

"So it should have come as no surprise that Trump finally went where no U.S. president had ever gone before. In a tweet last week, he actually suggested that the country 'Delay the Election.' That trial balloon was a brazen effort to see if he can defraud his way into four more years in the White House," he explained. "And why not try? After all, Trump has managed to swindle his way through life, on matters large and small, essential and trivial."

Trump’s ‘delay the election’ tweet laid the groundwork for him and his followers to have an excuse if he loses

Published

on

Writing in The New York Times this Monday, Gail Collins and Bret Stephens discuss their contention that President Trump is seeing the writing on the wall regarding the 2020 election, an analysis born from his recent tweet where he suggests delaying the election.

According to Stephens, Trump's tweet is a sign that he knows "in his heart" that he's going to lose in November.

"He’s laying the groundwork not for a coup but for an excuse, both for himself and for his followers," Stephens says. "It creates a mythology to explain defeat, attack Joe Biden and keep the Trump family relevant in the Republican Party. The fact that he’d pull a stunt like this is another reason it’s so important that he lose in a landslide in November."
