'This should be a no-brainer!': Former adviser pounds GOP leaders' silence on Trump dining with anti-Semites
During an appearance on MSNBC's "The Sunday Show," former Republican Party campaign adviser Tara Setmayer went on an extended tirade attacking the GOP leadership for remaining silent about Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago dining experience with Kanye West and Nick Fuentes -- both of whom are vocal and notorious anti-Semites.
Speaking with host Jonathan Capehart, Setmayer -- now a principal at the anti-Trump Lincoln Project -- said that the former president handed Republicans a gift if they are truly interested in moving on from him.
With that in mind, she scorched Republicans who are looking the other way at Trump breaking bread with a Holocaust-denier.
"Listen, this should be a no-brainer," she told the host and panel. "Where are the elected leaders of the Republican Party marching on the Sunday shows condemning this? Saying 'hell no, this person has no place in the Republican Party'?"
"Donald Trump has abdicated any moral responsibility, authority, anything, to be anywhere near the elected office again," she argued. "We didn't want this ilk in our party -- we are moving on."
"Where is that?" she continued. "You don't hear that from McConnell McCarthy, from anyone. I mean, people like Asa Hutchinson and some of these non-elected officials come out and say it. but they didn't have to face the voters anymore. This is who the Republican Party has become and they have enabled it and they don't care or they are too cowardly to speak up because they're worried about losing power. This is a problem."
Reminded about outgoing Arkansas Gov. Hutchinson's comments on CNN, Setmayer bluntly stated, "Who cares? He's not elected anymore."

Former television host Meghan McCain blasted failed Arizona candidate for governor Kari Lake (R) on Sunday over an ongoing family feud and for denying the outcome of the 2022 election for governor.
"She made it so personal," McCain told Fox News host Howard Kurtz. "She has attacked my mother, my brother, my dad, me. I mean, it made it wildly personal. Things I don't want to repeat on your show because it's so gross."
"I would love for anyone to run for office as a Republican and not just crap all over my family," she added. "They keep losing. My dad (Sen. John McCain) is the last Republican to win a general election on a national level in Arizona. Arizona is now blue!"
McCain said that denying the outcome of elections was "a completely losing path for Republicans moving forward."
"Before the election, it was something people thought [Lake] would do if she ended up losing so I'm certainly not surprised," McCain concluded. "And again, if she has evidence, go ahead and show us."

During an appearance with MSNBC host Ali Velshi, Donald Trump biographer David Cay Johnston stated that, should the former president pursue his dream of a third presidential run, it will take the Republican Party down three paths -- none of which will be good for the GOP's prospects of regaining the White House.
Speaking with the host, Johnston claimed having the former president at the top of the ticket would be a big win for Democrats who see him as eminently beatable.He noted it could be even worse if he is denied his third run as a Republican.
"I think going forward there are three likely outcomes," he told the MSNBC host.
"One is Donald gets the Republican nomination because he is able to turn out his minority of people who win the primaries; the Democrats should be very happy if that happens," he ticked off. "Secondly, he does not get the nomination and runs as an independent, which would allow the Democrats to run virtually anybody and win the White House."
"But the third possibility is that Donald seeing that he would be overwhelmingly trounced and labeled a loser -- a word he hates with a passion -- will tell his supporters to boycott voting," he suggested.
