First of all, the house Republicans are starting at a much higher base. They are at 210 plus they have five vacancies that are Republican. If they gain 25 or 30 seats, it will be the biggest majorities since the early 1920s. I think the election is going to be the blowout because in real everyday life, this administration is extraordinarily painful for the American people. I think they will go in, vote to throw the bums out, the classic battle cry, and I would not be shocked, I think some of the house folks don’t like me to say it but I would not be shocked if they were somewhere between plus 25 and plus 70. Now plus 70 will begin to move towards the all-time high of 1894. It’ll be extraordinary. But if you watch what’s happening around the country, every couple weeks the various experts come out and they say, you know, few more seats are leaning Republican, a few more leaning Republican. I saw other studies today where there is a few more seats leaning Republican. It could be amazing and frankly things like last night putting a president on a comedy show when people are in pain is about the dumbest possible scheduling decision.
If this was a jury trial, I think there were two things that came up that destroy the case against Donald Trump. The first was Liz Cheney who said openly that they had the intelligence reports three or four days earlier. How can you blame Trump if, in fact, there were intelligence reports three or four days earlier that there were extremist gangs who wanted to come and cause violence? Second, the photographer that they brought in the documentary filmmaker said that he was with the proud boys, and he was surprised that they didn’t go to the Trump speech and went straight to the capitol. How can you blame Trump and the Trump’s speech of the people who were violent didn’t even go to the speech because they’ve come to Washington for the purpose of violence. So, the efforts to tie this to Trump are an absurdity, but it raises the question they’ll never try to answer. Why did Nancy Pelosi turn down President Trump’s offer of 20,000 national guardsmen? If they had those guardsmen at the capitol, nothing would have happened. That’s the recommendation of the capitol police chief who was overruled by Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi and they are not going to go into that at all.
They can claim that, but the fact is the offer was made three days out because you know they offer had to have been made because it was turned down. They could not have turned down a non-offer. So, the very fact that they had to meet that the sergeant at arms at both the senate and the house turned down the offer means by definition there must have been an offer.
It’s not, a coup is a serious effort to replace the government by an organized group who have that purpose. This was a mob, it was a riot, and totally opposes as a former speaker of the house I am appalled that Speaker Pelosi did not protect the capital. I blame her for allowing the capital to remain vulnerable. This should have been something that could’ve been controlled easily, but a real coup is an effort to occupy the government and to change who controls Washington. There is no evidence of anything like a coup here. This is all hysteria by the left for the reason that you said earlier. They’ll going to get wiped out this fall and this is one of the handful of straws they’ve got left to grasp at and they are hoping that they can arouse the country. I hate to tell them, the price of gasoline, the price of food, 15,000 people in a convoy about to enter the U.S. illegally. The murder rates in big cities, those are all going to trump to use the word what the Democrats are trying to do.
