Appearing on MSNBC on Saturday afternoon with host Alex Witt, noted Republican campaign consultant Stuart Stevens left no doubt about what he thinks is going to happen on election day, saying Donald Trump is going to “get crushed” and former Vice President Joe Biden will become the next president.

According to Stevens, the overwhelming reasons to vote against Trump have piled up to such a point that there is little the president can do to erase them from voters’ minds with just over two weeks to go.

Pointing out the circumstances of the 2020 election are completely different than 2016 when Trump surprisingly won, Stevens stated, “The last race [Hillary] Clinton was a functional incumbent; Donald Trump, the outsider. Now, of course, becoming the president, he’s the incumbent.”

“Look, what we get here is so caught up in the weirdness of Donald Trump and of what sort of a freak show it is, but if you thought of any incumbent president who — in the last six months more people died from a disease than in the last 100 years, the economy the worst since the Great Depression and you can’t leave the country, can’t drive to Mexico or Canada,” he elaborated. “The only country can you go to in Europe is Serbia — we wouldn’t think that that person was coasting to re-election.”

“Donald Trump should be in trouble based on these external factors,” he added. “He’s made it worse because he has no message and Donald Trump is going to be crushed, absolutely crushed, and he’s going to take a lot of Republicans down with him.”

GOP senator offended LDS community after likening Trump to a ‘selfless’ Book of Mormon hero: report

Published

Politics and religion are colliding out west after comments a Republican senator made while stumping for the president.

"Sen. Mike Lee drew criticism from members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints this week after comparing President Donald Trump to Captain Moroni, a heroic and selfless figure in the Book of Mormon," The Arizona Republic reported Friday evening.

"To my Mormon friends, my Latter-day Saint friends, think of him as Captain Moroni," Lee (R-UT) said, pointing to Trump. "He seeks not power, but to pull it down. He seeks not the praise of the world or the ‘fake news,’ but he seeks the well-being and the peace of the American people."

Al Franken warns voters Mitch McConnell ‘is not as charming as he looks’ on HBO’s ‘Real Time’

Published

Former Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) showed off the sense of rumor that put him on "Saturday Night Live" during a Friday night appearance on HBO's "Real Time" with Bill Maher.

The two politically-minded comedians had a fascinating debate on what would happen if President Donald Trump refuses to leave office on January 20, 2021.

Franken said that would be a good thing, as it would mean Trump lost and would be escorted from the premises. Maher, however, had far less faith in America's institutions.

The two agreed to disagree on the topic.

Franken urged viewers to vote for Democrats in Senate races, warning that if Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) remains in power he would block everything a potential Joe Biden administration might try to accomplish.

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher reviewed the latest news on the Friday night before 2020 election.

"Four days until the election," he noted. "As Stormy Daniels once said, 'Let's just get this over with!'"

He noted the huge turnout and said, "the Supreme Court said some of the votes may even be counted."

"Trump has not been this scared of the mail since the draft," he joked.

Maher also took on the "Trump thugs" and counseled voters on an obscene comment they could say to MAGA poll watchers.

The host also discussed Trump's super-spreader events and the COVID-19 outbreak in the White House.
