At a rally on friendly turf in Kentucky Monday night, President Trump urged what he called an “angry majority” of voters to send a powerful “signal” to Democrats and the world by handing the GOP a big victory not only in Tuesday’s gubernatorial race there, but also in the pivotal upcoming statewide elections in Virginia, Mississippi, and Louisiana.
The result of the showdown in Kentucky — as well as Tuesday’s gubernatorial race in Mississippi and state legislature races in Virginia — could serve as a barometer this week on whether Trump still has the ability to rally Republicans at the voting booth amid Democrats’ ongoing impeachment inquiry. Top Democrats have acknowledged that Trump’s influence helped the GOP sweep key House special elections in North Carolina in September.
Amid chants of “USA” at Monday’s rally, Trump repeatedly sought to leverage his accomplishments in office, including energy independence and historically low unemployment rates, to boost Gov. Matt Bevin.
At one point, Trump reminded the audience that American special forces had just provided “the world’s number-one terrorist a one-way ticket to hell,” in a colorful reference to the now-dead Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
“The dog will be coming very shortly to the White House!” Trump remarked, shouting-out the elite canine that helped take down Baghdadi.
The president stood in front of throngs of attendees wearing “Read the transcript!” shirts — a reference to the White House’s readout of Trump’s July call with Ukraine’s leader, which has prompted Democrats to begin an impeachment inquiry even as Republicans insisted the conversation was benign.
“The Democrats are trying to tear our country apart,” Trump said, noting that partisans had pushed the “Russia hoax” and the “Mueller scam. … And then, Mr. Mueller testified. That was a wonderful day — for me,” referencing testimony from the former special counsel.
Calling The Washington Post “disgusting,” Trump noted that the paper had reported that impeachment was coming — just 19 minutes after he took office. (“At the moment the new commander in chief was sworn in, a campaign to build public support for his impeachment went live,” the Post’s piece read.)
Trump asserted that Democrats were “crazy” and obsessed with Russian conspiracy theories, noting that Hillary Clinton claimed presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard, also a Democrat, was being “groomed” to be a “Russian asset.”
To sustained applause, the president also introduced Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a fellow Republican, as a hero who “refused to cave to the left-wing mob” during the confirmation hearings of now-Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
McConnell is up for re-election in 2020 against Amy McGrath, whom Trump dismissed as an “extreme liberal” who inartfully compared the president’s 2016 win to the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
“Thank you, Mr. President, for making America great again,” McConnell said when he took the microphone. “We’re changing the federal courts forever.”
Later at the rally, Kentucky GOP Sen. Rand Paul called on the Ukraine whistleblower to testify, saying he was biased and that Democrats are trying to hide his identity from view.
“I say to the media: Do your job and print his name,” Paul said, referring to the whistleblower.
Paul also slammed Hunter Biden for obtaining lucrative roles with companies despite having no relevant expertise while his father, as senator and vice president, pushed legislation affecting those companies.
As the rally continued, Trump hammered “Sleepy Joe” Biden as an inept elderly man whose “handlers” lived in a state of perpetual fear of the next big gaffe. He also echoed Paul’s assertion that the Bidens were corrupt, saying the real “quid pro quo” was the money that the younger Biden received to curry influence with his powerful father.
“America is not for sale — and we’re more determined than ever to drain the swamp,” Trump said. “A lot of bad things are going to be revealed.”
On health care, Trump vowed to protect those with “pre-existing conditions” by preserving their “pre-existing physicians” — a quip that the president said he coined on the spot. (President Obama had vowed, falsely, that his health care plan would allow everyone to “keep” their doctors; and Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders each have pushed for “Medicare-for-all,” a government-led heath care takeover.)
“Every child is a sacred gift from God,” Trump added, saying Democrats are now the party of “late-term abortion.”
…”Faith and family, not government and bureaucracy,” the president asserted, were the foundation of the country and the principles that would carry the GOP to victory on Tuesday.
…Daniel Cameron, the GOP nominee for Kentucky attorney general, tied the election to Democrats’ ongoing impeachment inquiry against the president — and told voters they should send a specific message to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
“This is our president, and we’ll never let you take him away from this country,” Cameron said.
By the way, Daniel Cameron is a Conservative American…who happens to be black.
The above article is right.
Todaygubernatorial races will be used by the Main Stream Media and the Political Pundits who appear on it as a future portent of how the 2020 Presidential Election could go.
After the way Democrats have behaved since they regained control of the House of Representatives, I am looking for the Republicans to do very well in all of the state elections today.
The Democrats learned nothing at all from the 2016 Presidential Election.
I tried to watch Hispanic Activist and DNC Chairman Tom Perez on Martha McCollum’s Fox News Program before they cut away to the MAGA Rally.
I had to turn the sound off.
That clown lied the entire time he was on the show while avoiding answering McCollum’s direct questions, even after she repeatedly called him on it.
During the interview, she brought up Fox News’s current Democrat-heavy poll results which showed that 49% of those polled wanted President Trump impeached.
If you believe that, you don’t get out much.
Last week, a reporter from “Meet The Press” did Man of the Street Interviews with Americans about how they felt the Democrats were doing.
All of those interviews which they showed featured Americans who stated that they were against impeaching the President and they also stated that the House Democrats were acting like spoiled children and need to “get back to work”.
The Democrats are between a rock and a hard place.
The “Impeachment Inquiry” is, in reality, wearing then of average Americans between the coasts. You know, those of us whom Hillary Clinton called “Deplorables” because we did not buy her B.S. and voted for Trump.
Also, none of the Democratic Party’s present Primary Candidates stand a snowball’s chance in July of beating President Trump…and Hillary Clinton would face a landslide defeat should she foolishly decide to enter the race at the last minute.
It would behoove the Democrats if they dropped their Soviet-style “Impeachment Inquiry” and actually attempted to do something worthwhile for the American people.
At least then, they would be defeated for the Presidency while showing some class…
…instead of going down in history as temper tantrum throwing, Marxism-loving poor losers.
It’s their (political) party. They can cry if they want to.
You would cry too, if (you were a self-serving, power-hungry professional politician and) it happened to you.
