Fox News' Juan Williams: GOP's Loyalty To Trump Defies Political Reality
Fox News analyst Juan Williams defied his network's loyalty to former President Donald Trump in a scathing essay on Monday.
He accused Republicans that supporting the twice-accused election loser would result in political gain. Trump's support on Capitol Hill "is a far cry from political reality," Williams wrote in an opinion piece for The Hill.
He warned that "politics is spiraling into absurdity" - and it comes from the right wing who are still promoting the president's lies about the January 6 elections and attack on the Capitol.
The essay is entitled "The GOP's Losing Bet On Trump". Williams, who often contradicts his colleagues at Fox News, cited polls indicating that Trump's popularity is waning and prominent Republicans need to watch out.
But recent events are a surefire sign that it isn't.
Georgia Republican MP Andrew Clyde said the Capitol riot looked more like a "normal tourist visit" on videotape, which somewhat parallels Trump's revisionist filming of the deadly siege. A group of GOP examiners in Arizona said they were looking for bamboo in ballot papers to justify a weirdo theory that thousands of illegal ballot papers from Asia made it into the swing state election.
Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., Chairman of the minority House of Representatives, led charges of ousting Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) From her high post after repeatedly proclaiming Trump's lies. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) Said the Republican Party couldn't grow without Trump.
Williams claimed the party had gotten a grip on "skewed thinking" as Trump's unfavorable ratings become such an issue that the NRCC reportedly tried to suppress the results of its own poll (which also found that President Joe Biden was on Popularity gains).
"These reality-based polls threaten to explode the lies that Trump supports as the GOP's best hope of returning to power in Congress and regaining the presidency," Williams wrote, adding a dire prediction for Conservatives.
"The reality is that if the 2022 midterm elections are a referendum on Trump instead of Biden, Republicans will not gain control of either house," he concluded.
