The following is a transcript from the Pro America Report.
Welcome, welcome, welcome. Ed Martin here on the Pro America Report. Hey, I’ve got this prerecorded one of my interviews, so I’ve got to get to that, and I’ve got a little less time.
In a few moments, we’ll have a lengthy interview with Ryan Girdusky about his performance in his PAC, 1776 PAC, which competed in a lot of schoolboard races and a lot more. We’ll talk with him. He’s grumpy. He’s grumpy at Trump. He’s not happy with Trump.
But let me just tell you what you need to know today. It is absurd, and there’s a nice written analysis of this. It is absurd to blame Donald Trump for Tuesday’s elections. There’s a lot of blame to go around, but he wasn’t on the ballot. And the idea that somehow he’s to blame, it’s just silly. And as the powers that be try to do that, it actually, I think, makes him look stronger and look more like the guy who wants to drain the swamp. It’s just plain silly. It’s a crazy thing to do. Look, could he have campaigned differently for some candidates? I suppose, but I don’t think he even intruded on candidates that didn’t ask for help. So it’s really a mistake. There’s a lot of blame game going on. In the House and Senate you’re seeing real questions about the leadership of their parties. That the senate, the head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, Rick Scott, the senator from Florida, spent his money in the wrong places. That the congressman in charge of the NRCC, the National Republican Congressional Committee, Tom Emmert, that he spent his money in the wrong places. Those guys raised hundreds of millions of dollars. They just didn’t do a good job of winning. Now, that’s the front line of who’s to blame any race, and winning any race is there. The second thing I’ll just tell you is I think the country is just divided, and in most places, you’re going to be divided. So I wouldn’t let the blame game go to Trump. So anyway, we got to run.
We’ll come back. Ryan Girdusky coming back after the break. Ed Martin here in the Pro America Report. Back in a moment.
