GOP pundit explains why Trump’s ‘greatest hits’ won’t save campaign: ‘This time around he’s fat Elvis’

Republican commentator Charlie Sykes on Monday predicted that President Donald Trump cannot win by simply repeating his “greatest hits” on the campaign trail.

“It’s inexplicable to me that he’s still campaigning against Hillary Clinton,” MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell told Sykes after Trump chanted “lock them up” at a recent rally.

“He’s playing his greatest hits,” Sykes explained. “He’s playing all the hits from 2016. The problem is that this time around he’s fat Elvis. It feels derivitive because 2016 is a different time. Nobody cares about Hillary’s emails anymore.”

“Yes, it is disturbing to have a president of the United States make it his signature line to imprison — indict and imprison — his political opponents,” he noted. “But this is again a guy who seems to have lost the narrative here.”

“Four years ago, a lot of Americans wanted to burn it all down,” Sykes added. “This year, a lot of Americans just want to keep their jobs, want to stay alive and want a return to normalcy. So I do think that you see the gap between the things that worked in 2016 and the mood of the country in 2020, which is why the winds are against him this year.”

Obama says some Black men are persuaded by Trump’s ‘macho’ bravado bragging about women and money

Published

In part two of the SnapChat interview with President Barack Obama, Peter Hamby asked how President Donald Trump was able to persuade so many Black men to support him over President-elect Joe Biden.

When Obama was elected he got about 95 percent of the Black vote, where Biden got about 80 percent.

"Well, look, I think men, generally, are more susceptible to public figures who act tough, sort of the stereotypical macho style," Obama said, while videos of Trump showing off his flabby muscles appeared. "I don't think Black men are immune to that any more than White or Hispanic men are. A lot of the values of pop culture are extolling wealth, power, frankly, greed, not thinking about other people because you're so ruthless you're just looking out for yourself."

Published

Michigan state Rep. Aaron Miller, a Republican, this week accused Rudy Giuliani of entering the "realm of insanity" with his testimony to lawmakers in Michigan.

Miller made the remarks following Giuliani's wild testimony to the Michigan House Oversight Committee.

"I’m happy to thoughtfully listen to evidence and claims and that was what today was supposed to be about, but Mr. Giuliani’s final statement waded into the realm of insanity," Miller said, according to The Detroit News. "He made wild and broad partisan insults for several minutes that had nothing to do with the election, and it was frankly unacceptable, shameful, and pathetic and distracts from any evidence that we might hear."
