Skirmishes in the ‘MAGA’ base are out in full force! Many in right-wing circles have been engaged in political skirmishes ever since the surge of Pennsylvania Republican primary Senate candidate Kathy Barnette. Barnette has risen in popularity in the past week, recently tying for first place in a head-to-head Trafalgar poll pitting her against candidates David McCormick and the Trump-endorsed Dr. Mehmet Oz. She enjoys a wide array of supporters, many of whom voted for former President Donald Trump.

The former president has since shared comments alleging that Barnette would not be able to win when facing a Democrat head-to-head in a future general election.

“Kathy Barnette will never be able to win the General Election against the Radical Left Democrats,” former President Trump said in a statement. “Dr. Oz is the only one who will be able to easily defeat the Crazed, Lunatic Democrat in Pennsylvania. A vote for anyone else in the Primary is a vote against Victory in the Fall!” he said.

Trump’s comments have drawn criticism from numerous conservative commentators who have supported and voted for him, including The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh.

“Trump continues to shill for a leftist who pushed puberty blockers, BLM, abortion, and gun control,” Walsh posted on Twitter.

“Might as well just endorse a Democrat. Literally no difference.”

Walsh continued, noting that Dr. Oz is a Turkish citizen and that he is running for senate in Pennsylvania despite living in New Jersey. Barnette previously alluded to this after she called Oz and others running the Pennsylvania primary “carpetbaggers” during the most recent debate.

“When they lose you will never see them again,” and “if they win, you will never see them again!” Barnette said at the time.

“Great endorsement, Trump!” Walsh sarcastically concluded in an online chain of posts.

Attacks levied at Barnette did not come from Donald Trump alone. Other criticisms of the senate candidate came from Former Trump Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, who shared out-of-context Twitter posts and heavily doctored videos in an attempt to paint Barnette as a supporter of the extremist Black Lives Matter organization.

Investigations by Big League Politics have revealed this to not be the case; videos found in the old Tweets showed Barnette speaking against Black Lives Matter as far back as 2016.
