José Andreu, a top veteran of the Bay of Pigs invasion of 1961, spoke to the Miami Herald and split from his brigade’s endorsement of President Trump.

The Herald reports that Andreu, 84, is the now the second prominent member of the group of the Miami-based veterans to publicly reject Trump. While Andreu hasn’t specifically said who he’s voting for, he made it clear that it’s not Trump, adding he that wants “to make clear I’m not taking a partisan position.”

“We need to get rid of Trump,” Andreu told the Herald. “Now we have four years of experience and we know what he is.”

“As a political leader, Mr. Trump has been disastrous,” he continued. “To begin with, he has destroyed the Republican Party,” he said. “The one of Ronald Reagan, of moderation and coexistence in internal matters and of firmness in foreign relations. He has turned the Republican Party into a party without principles led by leaders who have abdicated all their moral responsibilities to turn into unthinking vassals.”

The first veteran from the brigade to reject Trump was 78-year-old Santiago Morales, who slammed Trump for allegedly calling fallen and captured soldiers “losers.” He also decried the GOP for labeling Democrats as “socialists” in a political ad that began airing on Tuesday.

Published

Conservative attorney George Conway-- who is married to former Donald Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway -- made an appearance on GOP consultant Rick Wilson's "New Normal" podcast on Tuesday, where the two Lincoln Project founders wondered whether the president really wants the Republican Party to hang onto the two Georgia Senate seats headed for a run-off in January after he went down to defeat in the state.

The trio started off the Daily Beast podcast with a hilarious dramatic reading of the Washington Post's bombshell report about the president's inability to comprehend how he lost the election, with Conway laughing at the mention of Trump's "fragile mental state."

‘Checkmate’: Legal experts agree remaining Trump election challenges won’t ‘amount to anything’

Published

on

President Donald Trump has exhausted nearly all of his options for overturning his election loss to Joe Biden, legal experts agree.

Trump continues flinging lies about voter fraud from his Twitter account, and only a few highly improbable options remain before Biden is inaugurated next month, reported Bloomberg.

“It’s checkmate in terms of the various chess moves on the board, but they could try go for other moves anyway,” said Edward Foley, director of an election-law program at Ohio State University. “Normally when you see that it’s going to be checkmate, you sort of concede.”

Mitt Romney on COVID relief: ‘The only time to borrow money is when there’s a crisis and this is a crisis’

Published

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) on Tuesday bucked most of his Republican colleagues by calling for a COVID-19 relief bill.

Romney appeared at a bipartisan press conference, where senators proposed $908 billion in aid for unemployed workers, local governments, schools, transportation and health care.

"COVID has created a crisis and in a crisis people expect Congress to act," Romney said. "It simply unacceptable for us not to respond to help in this circumstance."

"I happen to be a deficit hawk," he continued. "I don't like borrowing money. I don't like spending money we don't have. But the time to borrow money, maybe the only time to borrow money, is when there's a crisis and this is a crisis. We want to help people at this particular time."
