Tweet of the Day- RNC




Adam Kinzinger, again. Of course, this would be great, and for two reasons related to each other (which, of course, Ronna is to Mitt Romney, which she hid by dropping the "Romney" in her name).

McDaniel fed the alligator by being a loyal supporter of Donald J. Trump- and by being effectively convincing the mainstream media otherwise. In an article last November,  CNN reporter naively wrote

“Painfully, Joe Biden won the election and it’s very painful to watch. He’s the President. We know that,” McDaniel said at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor in Washington, DC.

While the RNC has for months criticized Biden in press releases and rapid response materials, McDaniel’s comments Thursday marked the first time the party chairwoman has clearly stated that Biden “won” the 2020 election.

(Warning: sarcasm ahead.) What was her first clue? Was it the projection by networks a few as it when electors met in each state on 12/14/20 and cast their votes for the Delawarean? Was it the certification of the Electoral College of the results? Was it when Congress certified the electoral college vote in the early morning hours of January 7, 2021? Was it when Trump failed on 61 of 62 lawsuits he filed to overturn the election? Or was it when McDaniel saw Joe Biden speaking from inside the White House, or outside of it in the Rose Garden, at a lectern with the presidential seal?

Or this could have been a clue:


 

That the ex-vice president won the election and became President was never in doubt, except to a tiny minority of the hard-core MAGA people, and probably only to a tiny minority of them. To believe otherwise would not have been merely wrong, stupid, or even evil but certifiably delusional. 

The issue always has been- to a majority of Republicans, a small number of unaffiliated voters, and to Trump himself- whether Joe Biden was legitimately elected.  McDaniel never has admitted that he was and in February declared “Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger crossed a line. They chose to join Nancy Pelosi in a Democrat-led persecution of ordinary citizens who engaged in legitimate political discourse that had nothing to do with violence at the Capitol.”


 


Much of the media does not seem to understand who (or what) Ronna Romney McDaniel is. But Mike Lindell, though admittedly dangerous, is an open book and clearly embodies qualities which most of America rejects. If he does stand for election to head of the Republican National Committee, he might not win. However, if he does become its chairman, the entertainment value would be off the charts.
