Trump turns once and for all against Republicans who won’t help him steal the election – By Aaron Rupar (VOX) / January 6, 2021
Speaking to protesters from the White House, Trump said, “We have to primary the hell out of the ones that don’t fight.”
The “Save America” pro-Trump rally just outside the White House on Wednesday amounted to a declaration of war on the Republican Party by the president’s most fervent followers.
President Donald Trump attacked a long list of Republicans during his speech, including Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney, Liz Cheney, and Bill Barr, in addition to the Supreme Court. Their offenses? Being unwilling to help him try to overturn his election loss to Joe Biden.
“They’re weak Republicans, they’re pathetic Republicans,” Trump said, adding later: “If they don’t fight, we have to primary the hell out of the ones that don’t fight. … We’re gonna let you know who they are.”
Trump teased in Georgia on Monday that he’d present new smoking gun evidence of election fraud during Wednesday’s rally, but he ended up repeating the same old lies. He referred to the counting of votes as “explosions of bullshit” and compared the US unfavorably with “third-world countries.”
