Trump Hurts Republicans in Georgia, Again

The man is a menace.

Like a dog returning to its own vomit, Donald Trump can not stay away from Georgia. In January he poked his snout into the Senate runoffs there and managed to lose both races and control of the US Senate to the Democrats.

He returns to the scene of the crime to divide the Republican Party because an incumbent Republican governor refused to illegally and unethically knuckle under to Trump’s crazy demands to cheat for him in a presidential election recount. Because Brian Kemp put his duty to Georgia over the rantings of this low rent sidewalk Caesar, Trump now has targeted him for defeat at the hand of one of the Senate losers, David Perdue.

Kemp will likely have to face Democrat Stacey Abrams in the general election. So the last thing he or the parry needs is a divisive primary. But Trump doesn’t care about that. He just wants revenge and he is willing to injure a popular and capable Republican governor to get it.

If the nation and the Republicans are lucky, Kemp will beat Perdue and the bloom will start to come off the Trump rose for enough Republicans to look somewhere else in the campaign of 2024. If not, Trump may still win in 2024. But the nation would be better served by another Republican in the Oval Office.

FNC: “David Perdue, the Trump-backed former senator, will challenge Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp in a Republican primary face-off next year. He announced the move Monday.

The announcement sets up for an epic GOP civil battle in Georgia, where President Biden edged Trump by a razor-thin margin. The winner will face likely 2022 Democratic nominee Stacey Abrams, who narrowly lost to Kemp in 2018.

Perdue, who was narrowly defeated by now-Democratic Sen. Jon Ossoff in last January’s Senate runoffs, was recruited by former President Donald Trump to oust Kemp over his refusal to help the then-president’s efforts last year to overturn the election results in Georgia.”

Kemp spokesman Cody Hall slammed the move. “The man who lost Republicans the United States Senate and brought the last year of skyrocketing inflation, open borders, runaway government spending, and woke cancel culture upon the American people now wants to lose the Georgia governor’s office to the national face of the radical left movement,” Hall said. “It may be difficult for David Perdue to see this over the gates of his coastal estate, but Joe Biden’s dangerous agenda is hitting hardworking Georgians in the wallet and endangering their livelihoods – and we all have David Perdue to thank for it. Perdue’s only reason for running is to sooth his own bruised ego, because his campaign for U.S Senate failed to inspire voters at the ballot box – twice,” Hall added.

Sorry David but you are wrong to attack Trump for trying to put together a winning, active team in GA. Stacy Abrahams as Gov would be a total disaster for all citizens. But lets cut to the chase Trump was the most successful president since Reagan. So generally, uneducated people dont like Trump because he doesnt use political speech he says what he means and does what he promises. The result the best domestic and international plan maybe ever. So dont pay any attention to HOW he says it but believe WHAT he says.

Let’s not be too quick to laud Gov. Kemp. If you recall, he was part of the Republican CABAL that signed the OUTRAGEOUS agreement with Stacy Abrams and the Democrats that ALLOWED MASSIVE DEMOCRAT VOTER FRAUD in Georgia.

Gov. Kemp was a weak candidate and now, a weak leader. That he won in a very close race with Abrams, proves that he wasn’t as still isn’t high on the list of Republican voters in Georgia!

Lifezette appears to be little more a spin off of the Lincoln group!

Kemp should of cleaned up the election issues long before the presidential election took place. He did a bad job supporting this president and leader of the party. Trump did a magnificent job as president and he lost because the GOP in six states should of had their act together to stop the massive cheating. Kemp is no DeSantis. I can’t think of many accomplishments. The GOP failed trump and we are all feeling the effects of their bad decisions.

Oh, Donald Trump, please STAY out of Georgia ! We need to bring Republicans TOGETHER, NOT drive a wedge between them. Do you want that disgusting Stacey Abrams to become Governor of Georgia ? That would be a catastrophe for the state of Georgia !

Because of the NON-stop BASHING of President Trump for the 4 years he was in Office, the last Presidential election was CLOSELY watched by many, many People, and some of the Evidence is even on video, that there was HUGE FRAUD committed, same was watched for the Senate run-off in Georgia, so tell me again that there was NO BETRAYAL on this country as a whole…..The REAL Insurrection happened on Nov 3, 2020, and ALL that were involved in this are CRIMINALS and need to be held accountable…..!!!!

So. David Kamioner thinks Trump is a low life that refused to acknowledge actual defeat. I learn this only because as he engages the orange man with name calling. If I wanted name calling I would just dial in CNN. Please back up your name calling with a bit of actual news.
