I think that if we’re going to be fair about mainstream media pushing fake news stories, we need to do it fairly. That includes anytime that “conservative” outlets do the same thing. We either want truthful news, or different propaganda. But you can’t have both.
President Trump has yet to officially announce himself as a candidate for the 2024 Republican nomination. However, many believe it is just a matter of time before he does. Likewise, some Republicans are trying to distance themselves from the popular president.
Recently, Elon Musk tweeted that he is “leaning towards” Ron DeSantis in 2024. There are Republican lawmakers who are vocally discouraging President Trump from running again. The list includes Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson and, logically, whine bag Adam Kinzinger.
Nevertheless, there is still a strong list of Republican operatives who accept the reality of the situation. President Donald J. Trump is still wildly popular with the conservative base. It’s for a good reason. He says what he’s going to do for the American people and then does it.
The primary record of the candidates he’s endorsing exemplifies President Trump’s appeal. Candidates earning his endorsement are winning all across the country. His success rate is well over 90 percent. But there are those who are nervous about a potential 2024 run.
Some of these individuals are conservative voices in the media. One place that has usually stood strong behind the former President and his endorsed candidates is FOX News. However, in the Arizona gubernatorial race, FOX News aired a rather bizarre story.
Bret Baier mentioned an unsubstantiated accusation against Trump-supported candidate Kari Lake. The story was a bogus claim that Lake had taken her young daughter to a drag show. She hadn’t, and she never would. It was a made up lie first published by the Arizona Republic.
The liberal rag just automatically took the word of a deranged drag queen without even consulting with Lake. They ran with a story from drag artist Rick Stevens. Stevens is a real piece of work himself. But his story wasn’t even true.
Nevertheless, that didn’t prevent the liberal Washington Post from running a story about the fake accusation. Leave it to the liberal media to propagate lies. They’re practiced in the art. Lake has filed a lawsuit against the creepy Rick Stevens.
Subsequently, Baier brought Lake on, evidently in an attempt to smear her over the allegations. When Bret Baier questioned Lake about the false Post story, it got the candidate’s attention. Bret Baier, for all his journalistic professionalism, was thoroughly embarrassed by Lake.
In a heated 10-minute interview, Lake took Baier to task over the false rumors. The disgruntled candidate for Arizona governor said, “I am really disappointed in Fox. I thought you were better than CNN.” Good for Kari Lake. It’s about time conservatives stood up against these B.S. lies! We’ll bet President Trump was proud of Lake and doubled down on his endorsement.
