GOP alarmed after their party imploded in Pennsylvania: ‘People were just disgusted with Republicans’

President Donald Trump needs Pennsylvania if he hopes to win a second term — but the state’s Republican Party is reeling and mired in an internal power struggle.

Trump — who won there by less than a percentage point — was the first Republican to carry Pennsylvania since 1988, but the state’s GOP may not be able to offer much help in 2020, reported Politico.

The state Supreme Court redrew the gerrymandered map, which helped Democrats flip three congressional seats in November’s midterm election and won the gubernatorial race.

“These weren’t just defeats. They were bad defeats,” said GOP consultant Charlie Gerow. “The party has to be unified in order to win in 2020.”

But the party is not unified, after some Republicans blamed state chairman Val DiGiorgio for what Politico calls an “election from hell.”

DiGiorgio insists that “no one in the state (has) been more supportive of President Trump than I have,” but retiring Rep. Ryan Costello (R-PA) said the president had a “reverse” coattail” effect in the midterms.

“You’re talking about well-liked, experienced state representatives who worked their districts well and lost,” said Costello, who chose not to defend his seat under the redrawn congressional map.

“They lost because people were just disgusted with Republicans,” he added.

Attorney Ken White, a former federal prosecutor, has taken a look at some of the Trump campaign's latest legal filings and has found them to be equal parts "shockingly ridiculous" and "stunningly incompetent."

WATCH: Trump shamed Thanksgiving turkey for refusing to concede White House pardon contest

Published

It was just two years ago that President Donald Trump mocked a Thanksgiving turkey for refusing to concede the election for a White House pardon. As Thanksgiving 2020 approaches, Trump has officially become that turkey.

"This was a fair election... unfortunately, Carrots refused to concede and demanded a recount," Trump announced about the battle between Carrots and Peas.

"We're still fighting with Carrots," he joked in a speech. "And I will tell you, we've come to a conclusion: Carrots, I'm sorry to tell you, the results did not change. Too bad for Carrots."

It's unclear if Carrots still maintains the election was rigged, as President Trump does about the 2020 election. He joined Peas at Virginia Tech’s “Gobblers Rest” exhibit in Blacksburg, Virginia. There students and veterinarians within Virginia Tech’s Department of Animal and Poultry Sciences in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences care for all turkeys given a pardon.

A video from Germany is circulating on social media, showing a COVID-denier addressing a rally, only to have her speech interrupted by a security guard who was disgusted by her comparisons of pandemic restrictions to the Holocaust.

“I feel like Sophie Scholl, since I've been active in the resistance, giving speeches, going to protests, distributing flyers," the woman says to the audience, referring to the famous "White Rose" resistance fighter who opposed the Nazis during World War II.
