Donald Trump is unwittingly doing us a favor with this one

Most couldn’t care less about Donald Trump’s “messaging.” It usually contains lies, hate, or just downright meanness. Trump’s messaging carries no value or weight with anyone other than his die-hard supporters, and we hope they are listening closely. Republicans are fired up about Trump’s latest messaging, which claims that Republicans will not vote until his fraud allegations are fully investigated. First, his fraud allegations are just that—allegations. He has not shown one iota of proof of anything, and regardless of how much as he flaps his lips, he has none. Second, we hope that his claim about Republican voters will come to pass because when he did it in 2020, it brought Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock to the Senate from Georgia, and that was a very good thing.

According to Donald Trump: “If we don’t solve the Presidential Election Fraud of 2020 . . . Republicans will not be voting in ’22 or ’24,” Trump said in a statement on Wednesday. “It is the single most important thing for Republicans to do,” as reported by Huffington Post. Talk about a one-track mind. The man can think of nothing else, and instead of trying to help his party, he is hurting them. He does not care. It is and always has been about him. Nothing else matters. Some Republicans, however, are tired of it. Huffington Post reported that Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, who visited NBC’s “Meet the Press” this past weekend, said that Trump’s comments “are not constructive.” Hutchinson believes that continuing to beat this dead horse “is a recipe for disaster in 2022.” Hutchinson acknowledged that the vote which resulted in President Biden’s win has been certified and said that “states made decisions on the integrity of each of their elections,” but he went too far when he said that the states “made improvements where need be.” Those “improvements” refer to the voter suppression bills passed in several states, but those laws may not help Republicans if Trump keeps talking. We hope he does.

   

It is very telling that Trump has this type of power over some voters, and they are the very voters that Republicans need to win. They also want to attract the moderate and independent vote, which is not going to happen if the “stolen election” narrative continues. Most are not only tired of hearing about it, but anyone with sense knows that the election was not stolen. People simply went to out to vote, in higher numbers than ever before, mostly as a rebuke of Trump. Both Hutchinson and Senator Bill Cassidy have made it known that they do not support this narrative and want to make 2022 about issues. The problem for them is that Republicans have no ideas or desire to help the average American. They will try to capitalize on people’s fears and hatred, even as they rebuke Trump, and hope that they can make progress. It is our job to ensure that they do not. Whether or not they support Trump, the new form of Republicanism is not good for America.
