(PresidentialInsider.com)- Continuing the tradition of Democrats telling Republicans how they should run their party, Fox News’ Liberal host Juan Williams took to the pages of the Hill to opine on the future of the GOP.
Comparing the Republicans to the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland, Williams railed against the election audit currently underway in Maricopa County, Arizona – which, naturally, Williams believes is nothing but a sideshow and a continuation of the so-called BIG LIE.
He accuses the man running the audit of having “an apparent fondness for conspiracy theories” – even going so far as to derisively put the word “audit” in quotes.
Republican Congressmen who reject the current Democrat and media-driven narrative that the unruly mob that rushed the Capitol on January 6 constituted an “Insurrection” were also a target of Williams’ screed.
Calling their objections “absurd interpretations,” Williams ridicules Republican House members Andrew Clyde, Paul Gosar and, of course, Marjorie Taylor Green.
Williams hurls the go-to “conspiracy theorists” smear their way as well – all the while pretending that the “Insurrection” narrative is the factual one.
Claiming Trump’s objection to the 2020 elections are a “fantasy rewrite,” Williams goes so far as to use a quote from Late Night Comedy host Seth Meyers to back up his argument.
The upshot of Williams’ screed is that if Republicans do not reject Donald Trump, they will lose the midterm elections.
However, one can’t help but wonder why a columnist who desperately hopes Republicans lose in 2022 would offer them advice on how to win at all. More to the point, why would Republicans listen to the advice of a man who calls them crazy conspiracy theorists while actively hoping they lose in 2022?
The election advice from Left-leaning political pundits who cautioned Republican voters away from nominating Donald Trump in 2016 under the pretext that Hillary would soundly defeat him should probably be ignored.
There has always been a disconnect between beltway pundits and the rest of the country – which explains why beltway pundits got 2016 so completely wrong.
Unfortunately, that same disconnect exists between Establishment Republicans and their voters.
If Wednesday’s vote on forming a commission to investigate the January 6 events is any indication, there will no doubt be many Republicans who fall for Williams’ “helpful” advice. Just as there were Republicans who got hoodwinked into believing the RussiaGate hoax and the thoroughly discredited Steele Dossier.
