‘Time to bail’: Longtime Trump backer urges GOP to dump him to avoid total political wipeout

Mickey Kaus, a one-time centrist Democrat who has since turned into an anti-immigration activist, believes that it’s time for the GOP to dump the man whom he backed in the 2016 presidential election.

Kaus, who has been a dogged advocate of Trump since the early days of the 2016 Republican Primary, has written an essay called “A Time to Bail” that says the GOP would be better served at this point booting the president from the ticket and running a less controversial candidate for the presidency.

“It’s undeniable at this point: Trump’s falling behind and flailing,” he writes. “He’s alienating white voters, and not gaining enough of any other kind.”

Kaus writes that he is particularly frightened of Democrats winning and immediately passing an immigration bill that will provide a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants living in the United States, which he believes will permanently wipe out the Republican Party for decades to come.

Kaus also believes that taking Trump out of the equation would give Republicans a shot at keeping the White House, especially since former Vice President Joe Biden is not exactly an inspiring candidate.

“The Democratic party, currently held together by antipathy to Trump, would lose its overriding purpose,” he writes. “The intensity level of the Dem campaign will instantly drop. Millions who might turn out to get rid of Trump will stay at home. The lightning rod having wandered off with all the electricity, everything will probably become very boring very quickly.”

‘Black Voices for Trump’ spokesperson wants to nullify 100,000 Black votes he says were ‘tampered with’

Paris Dennard, a spokesperson for Black Voices for Trump, on Tuesday suggested that someone "tampered with" the votes of Black Americans in a scheme to steal the election from President Donald Trump.

During an interview on Newsmax, Dennard said that he believes that Trump will overturn the results of the election despite a determination by the General Services Administration (GSA) that Joe Biden is the president elect.

"There's no doubt that if we are able to prove our case in court looking at the states -- Arizona, looking at Georgia, looking at places like Michigan and Pennsylvania -- where we believe that there are irregularities," Dennard opined. "If we can show fraud going forward and toss out illegally cast ballots, ballots that should not have been counted, people that are dead or are not on the roles or if there's anything -- evidence that can be provided about [Dominion Election Systems] and any discrepancies there, it can overturn the certifications in these states and, thus, giving President Trump the win through the legal votes that were cast."

Published

on

On Tuesday, The New York Times podcast "The Daily" looked at how President Donald Trump has — unsuccessfully — tried to use the machinery of state and local government around the country to dismantle

"His team filed a litany of court cases in battleground states. In some, such as Georgia and Michigan, the president and his allies took an even more bullish approach, attempting to use their influence to bear down on election officials, even at the lowest levels of state government," said the report. "They have been relentless and tenacious in the efforts to transform the president’s fortunes. But the results have been immovable: Joe Biden is the president-elect."
