Ex-RNC Chair Says Trump Is ‘Wasting Our Time’

“My unease with Donald Trump didn’t just begin with his recent remarks concerning the barbaric invasion of Ukraine. It goes back to his arrival on the national scene roughly seven years ago. Montana is a place where there is appreciation for leaders who speak their minds, but an expectation they will also stick to the facts. It is also a place where drivel and deceit are quickly set aside as a waste of precious time. And, frankly, Donald Trump is wasting our time.”

— Former Montana governor and RNC Chair Marc Racicot slammed former President Trump in the Helena Independent Record over his comments on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, writing that the ex-commander in chief is “not fit to lead this nation.”

Four Trump-Backed Audits Debunked Trump

Washington Post: Thursday saw two major developments in the pursuit of the Big Lie: Trump successfully browbeat Texas into conducting a “full forensic” recount of votes in four counties and his sad yet bizarre audit in Arizona found another 360 votes — for Joe Biden.

Here’s the scorecard:
1. Arizona — 360 vote shift to Biden
2. Michigan/Antrim County — 12 votes to Trump
3. Georgia — 1,779 votes to Trump
4. Wisconsin — 74 votes to Biden

In other words: Democracy 1, Trump 0.

Trump’s Defense Chief Blames Him for Capitol Riot

“Would anybody have marched on the Capitol, and tried to overrun the Capitol, without the president’s speech? I think it’s pretty much definitive that wouldn’t have happened. … It seems cause-and-effect. The question is, did he know he was enraging people to do that? I don’t know.”

— Former Acting Secretary of Defense Chris Miller told Vice News that he believes former President Donald Trump’s speech caused the violent mob to attack the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
