“More and more conservative media outlets and personalities are speaking out against Donald Trump, and it would appear that Trump is getting thrown under the bus by the very groups that helped him gain power in the first place. Even if they weren’t “all-in” with Trump during his administration, they paved the way for his ascendance to the presidency, and now they are trying to tear down what’s left him. Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

Something that we’re starting to see more and more of, and this is something I’ve been talking about, you know, for a week or so now, but we’re starting to see conservative media break up as the daily beast. Put it with Donald Trump. I’ve already talked extensively of course, about what’s happening over at Fox news. Obviously you’ve got your die hard Trumpers on Fox news, the ones who get the 3 million viewers in the prime time, your entities, your Ingrams, and your, uh, Tucker Carlsons. But during the daytime, just in the last week, something remarkable has happened. You have had people like Martha McAllen, people like Neil Cavuto and even people like, uh, uh, Brian kill Mead. And of course, Brett bear this week come out and pretty much call out Donald Trump. Talk about how horrible these hearings have been for him. How explosive they’ve been, how compelling and stunning they have been.

Those are words used by hosts all the air on Fox news and Brian KME. And of course went the extra mile and said, Trump hasn’t been able to produce any evidence to suggest the election was stolen. Described him as unhinged. Following the 2020 election that is strong language coming from a conservative pro Trump person like Brian kill Mead. But this week it went a step further. This week, you had the conservative, uh, newspaper, the Washington examiner, their editorial board actually put out an op-ed this week saying that Donald Trump is unfit to ever hold office anywhere ever again, all the exact quote. Let me read it here. Let me find it one second. Trump is unfit to be anywhere near power ever again. That is the exact quote from this conservative newspaper and the national review. Another conservative outlet. Of course, they were never huge fans of Trump.

They, as the daily beast explains kind of shied away from going after him too much during his administration, but they came out this week with Andrew McCarthy. Who’s a columnist for them also happens to be a Fox news contributor who said that all in all Hutchinson showed the nation moment by moment, what he was like on a day when undeniably Trump was at his worst, it was worse than America thought. He also said that things will never be the same after this testimony also said as many others have that, it was stunning said, uh, it was devastating for Donald Trump. Although a majority of conservative outlets, conservative speakers, uh, uh, conservative personalities. They’re all still on board with Donald Trump. Plenty of them are actually still repeating his election lies, but the cracks are there. The cracks are growing both in size and in number, that is what is

So important about stories like these. And of course, as I mentioned, this is actually coming from the daily beast. The daily beast pointed all this out. So even they are noticing what is happening, what I’ve been talking about for the last two weeks now. And that is that conservative media to a degree, a small one now, but it is growing. They’re starting to throw Donald Trump under the bus. They’re trying to convince their viewers, their readers, whatever it is that this ain’t the guy, this is not the guy that’s gonna take the Republican party into the future. This is the guy that is going to in fact tank the entire Republican party. If you ever put ’em back at the top of a ticket again, because let’s not forget just because these outlets are coming out against Donald Trump. They’re not doing it because they’re suddenly allies of any of us on the left.

They’re doing it to preserve their own party. That’s the point of this. They can recognize Trump’s toxicity and they wanna make sure that we expel that toxicity before the next election. So that conservatives can go on to keep winning. They’re not attacking Trump outta the goodness of their heart. They’re not attacking him because they disagree with his policies. They don’t like that. He has become an embarrassment to the Republican party and they want nothing more than for the Republican party to succeed in taking over the country. So again, these are not our friends. It’s fun to watch them attack Trump, but don’t think for a second, that just because we have a common enemy, that that means we have a common goal”

Herschel Walker Is Getting Destroyed In Georgia Senate Race…

Date: July 02, 2022

“Republican senate candidate Herschel Walker is doing really, really bad in his race against incumbent Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock. In fact, Walker is actually losing by 10 points right now as he continues to suffer from an approval rating that is underwater. To make things worse for the GOP, Stacey Abrams has closed her polling gap against incumbent Republican governor Brian Kemp. Farron Cousins explains why these two particular races are of national importance.

The state of Georgia is certainly one to keep an eye on as we continue to inch closer and closer to the midterm elections, because one there’s a Senate seat that actually could end up determining who controls the Senate, you know, which party, and two, a very contentious gubernatorial race that could see the state of Georgia officially go blue, blue. And according to the latest polling data, Republicans are not doing well in the state of Georgia at all. So let’s start with the big one, right? Herschel Walker, challenging democratic incumbent, Rafael Warnock, and Herschel Walker, even though he cruised to a very easy primary victory is struggling a bit against Senator Warnock. In fact, according to the latest polls, Walker is down 10 points to Rafael Warnock, Herschel Walker, of course, former football star endorsed by Donald Trump, which helped him sail to it. Again, an easy primary victory, like not even close, the guy won very easily, but now that he’s out there with the general public, they’re not such such big fans of him anymore. Let me read some of these numbers.

Warnock’s overall 10 point lead is fueled by a 62 to 33% advantage over Walker among independent voters. That’s the big one, right? Because of course the Democrats are gonna vote for Warnock. The, uh, Republicans are gonna vote for Walker. So for Warnock to have a double digit, you have a 30 point lead over Walker with the independence. I don’t wanna say that seals the deal, cuz it’s too early in the race to say that. But if those numbers hold, uh, uh, Walker has no chance of victory whatsoever. Um, a double digit lead among females compared to Walker’s single digit margin among males Warnock wins among black voters. 88% to 10% Walker wins the support of white voters. 62% to 35%. So Warnock is winning by double digits among women. Walker is winning by single digit digits with men, black voters overwhelmingly go to Warnock instead of Walker. But those white people, man, they just love Republicans. And that’s why they’re going to Walker. But as I said, that’s not the only contentious race happening in the state of Georgia. Just a couple weeks ago. You know, after the primary dust had settled, they did a poll and uh, Stacy Abrams, the democratic candidate was losing by five points to Brian Kemp. The incumbent Republican governor, the latest poll shows the two of them tied at 48% a piece. We’re

Not talking about a statistical tie when you factor in margin of error. No, no, no. We’re talking about a legitimate tie. 48 to 48 Abrams has closed that five point gap in about two weeks in the state of Georgia. That is massive. That that is a, a major flip in the polls. A five point flip in just two weeks for Stacey Abrams, who of course has put her heart and soul into the state of Georgia has done phenomenal work is basically the big reason Georgia even turned blue. Uh, she’s the kind of leader by the way, the democratic party needs to be looking at for the future. Really smart, really hardworking just, and overall somebody. I, I, I just love her as a candidate. I truly do. Um, so that’s what’s happening in Georgia. Again, the gubernatorial race is exceptionally important, cuz we have seen some horrific legislation in the state of Georgia.

If Abrams can pull off a victory, maybe we can stop the bleeding there, but the, uh, Walker V Warnock race for Senate also important because if Warnock pulls off this victory in Georgia, it’s pretty much been assumed among, you know, the political elite that we were gonna lose that seat to begin with, you know, a couple months ago, that was the general assumption Democrats were gonna lose Georgia. And that kind of, you know, throws the whole house, uh, Senate Ray, excuse me, who controls it into limbo? It’s not looking like that right now. Same thing in Pennsylvania, that could be a Republican seat that flips to Democrats because John Federman is absolutely mopping the floor with Dr. Oz in that regard, at least in the Senate, things are looking good for Democrats.”
