President Donald Trump continues his break with the establishment wing of the Republican Party with a strongly worded statement slamming Republican political strategist and consultant Karl Rove, who has presided over the downfall of the Republican Party since the 1990s.
Only hours after releasing his second statement blaming Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for the loss of two Republican Senate seats in Georgia, President Trump has released a lengthy statement attacking Rove, the longtime Republican insider who has steered Republican politics and talking points for decades.
President Trump began by launching, “Karl Rove has been losing for years, except for himself. He’s a RINO of the highest order, who came to the Oval Office lobbying for 5G for him and a group. After a lengthy discussion with Rove and Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, I said no, they’re not qualified. Our Nation can do much better!”
He then described a conversation he shared with Rove on November 3, when President Trump says Rove called him to congratulate him on an easy electoral victory as the evening ended. In the early hours of November 4, Joe Biden received massive vote injections, a fact that still has not been explained away by those pushing the false narrative that there were no credible reports of widespread fraud in the 2020 election.
“On Election Evening, Nov. 3rd, at 10:30pm, Rove called to congratulate me on a great win,’ wrote President Trump. “I said thank you Karl, only to watch the rigged election take its final form.” President Trump added, “Karl Rove’s voice on Fox is always negative for those who know how to win. He certainly hasn’t helped Fox in the ratings department, has he?”
Fox News’s ratings have endlessly cratered since their coverage of President Trump turned dramatically in the days and weeks after the November 3 election, with multiple far-left networks routinely outperforming the once-conservative cable news outlet.
“Never had much of a feeling for Karl, in that I disagreed with so many of the things he says. He’s a pompous fool with bad advice and always has an agenda,” President Trump declared. “He ran the campaign for two Senators in Georgia, and did a rotten job with bad ads and concepts. Should have been an easy win, but he and his friend Mitch blew it with their $600 vs. $2,000 proposal. Karl would be much more at home at the disastrous Lincoln Project. I heard they have numerous openings!”
President Trump then demanded Republicans stop trusting the likes of Rove and stop employing him on political campaigns, accusing Rove of essentially being a perennial loser who enriches himself while offering pitiful advice to Republicans running for Congress.
“If the Republican Party is going to be successful, they’re going to have to stop dealing with the likes of Karl Rove and just let him float away, or retire, like Liddle’ Bob Corker, Jeff ‘Flakey’ Flake, and others like Toomey of Pennsylvania, who will soon follow,” wrote President Trump. “Let’s see what happens to Liz Cheney of Wyoming.”
“If it weren’t for me, the House would have lost 25 seats instead of gaining 15—it was a shock to everyone, and almost cost Pelosi her Speaker position. Likewise, 8-10 Senators would have lost their position, including Karl’s friend Mitch, our wonderful leader who would rather spend his time fighting me than Pelosi, Schumer, and Sleepy Joe. In last year’s Congressional primaries, 120 of the 122 candidates I endorsed won – and the two that lost were beaten by people claiming to be more Trump than their opponent.” President Trump added, “In the Senate, I was undefeated in primary endorsements with a record of 21 and 0, and close to that in the general election.”
“31 million people listened to my CPAC speech online, and it had among the largest television audience of the week, even though it was on cable at 4pm on Sunday afternoon.”
President Trump concluded, “Karl Rove is all talk and no action! Next time Karl, save your Election night phone call and keep doing a great job for the Democrats. Fox should get rid of Karl Rove and his ridiculous ‘whiteboard’ as soon as possible!”
