The right-wing editorial board of the Las Vegas Review-Journal seems to have had enough of scandal-plagued Rep. George Santos (R-NY), who on Tuesday announced he would step down from his committee assignments.
In an editorial published this week, the Review-Journal argued that Santos' serial falsehoods set a new standard for lying, even by the low standards of American politics.
"Rep. Santos is national news because he seems to be allergic to the truth in a way that makes even veteran politicians blush," the editors explained.
They then went through Santos' litany of fabrications, ranging from his academic achievements, his work history, and his family history.
The paper then expressed sympathy with House Republicans who fear further narrowing their already slim majority, but they argued that keeping Santos in the fold would be bad politics and urged the GOP to give him a shove out the door.
"Rep. Santos’s alternative reality extends well beyond typical political embellishment," they conclude. "Congress may not have many standards when it comes to honesty, but it should have some. Expulsion or impeachment are exceedingly rare. But Speaker Kevin McCarthy should make clear they are on the table if Rep. Santos refuses to resign."
Right-wing radio host John Fredericks, a fervent supporter of the MAGA movement, went off on former President Donald Trump for his campaign of "all grievances."
The host began by expressing dissatisfaction with Trump's support of Ronna McDaniels for Republican National Committee chair.
"President Trump is going to do what he wants," Fredericks said. "I think he should have stayed out of it, not even send surrogates. Let the chips fall where they may. Same with [Kevin McCarthy]. Let the chips fall where they may."
"He sent a big thing out yesterday about, I don't know, fake news," he complained. "He's suing somebody. I'm telling you, folks, I'm just telling you. Nobody cares. I mean, they just don't care."
Instead, Fredericks argued that Trump should be focusing on problems like the price of eggs.
"People are hurting and just putting out more Gettr or whatever it is — Truth Socials — about, you know, suing Woodward and CNN or something," he continued. "I'm telling you, it's all grievances. No one cares. They just don't care! I just don't care."
Fredericks reminded Trump that he "made the decision" to do interviews with Woodward.
"And you don't understand why they turn it against you," he added. "I mean, you've got all the publicity you'll ever need. And you think you're going to sit down with Bob Woodward for 100 hours with a tape recorder on and think that somehow at the end of the day, honestly, that that is going to work to your advantage if you're Donald Trump. Like somehow he was going to convince Woodward what a great president he is."
An oddsmaker slashed Donald Trump's of winning the 2024 election since his low-energy weekend rally in South Carolina.
The former president is the first serious candidate to officially announce for next year's election, although President Joe Biden is widely expected to seek re-election and a number of Republican challengers are still sitting on the sidelines, but Trump's odds of winning seem to be trending in the wrong direction, reported Newsweek.
"Before he took to the stage at his low-key campaign launch in South Carolina, Donald Trump returned to be the clear favorite at 8/5 to be the 2024 Republican nominee, and since then his odds have continued to shorten and he's now 6/4 to run as president for the Grand Old Party," said Sam Rosbottom, a spokesman for the bookmaker Betfair. "While he's the favorite to be the Republican nominee, it's actually his party opponent, Ron DeSantis who is the 16/5 favorite to win the 2024 presidential election.
Trump's odds improved last week on Irish bookmakers PaddyPower -- from 11/2 into 4/1 -- after Meta, the company that owns Facebook and Instagram, confirmed he would be allowed back on the platforms following his suspension for inciting the Jan. 6 insurrection, but he remains far behind the Florida governor in the eyes of oddsmakers.
"Donald Trump's chances have shortened, but he's still a way off DeSantis at 5/1," Rosbottom said. "While Joe Biden's chances of winning another term are better than Trump's at 7/2."
