The Republican Party establishment is blowing it hard, caving to COVID-19 hysteria, and instituting severe limitations for the upcoming Republican National Convention set to take place in Jacksonville, Fla. next month.
Republican National Committee (RNC) chairwoman Ronna McDaniel announced tight restrictions over the convention, which will go from Aug. 24 to 27. Trump supporters will be hassled and denied free access to the event to placate pandemic alarmists.
Only roughly 2,500 delegates will be allowed to participate in the first three days due to the pandemic. The GOP establishment brainiacs hope that everyone will stick around for Trump’s speech on the final day of the convention despite being disenfranchised.
“When we made these changes, we had hoped to be able to plan a traditional convention celebration to which we are all accustomed,” McDaniel said. “However, adjustments must be made to comply with state and local health guidelines.”
Some individuals close to President Trump are urging him to pull the plug on the convention entirely. It does not look like that will happen, but COVID-19 will certainly put a damper on the event, cause the crowd size to dwindle, and give the fake news media ample opportunity to denigrate Trump.
“We can gather and put on a top-notch event that celebrates the incredible accomplishments of President Trump’s administration and his re-nomination for a second term — while also doing so in a safe and responsible manner,” McDaniel wrote.
Meanwhile, prominent Republicans are simply announcing that they will not attend the event, and that list is growing by the day.
“I’m not going to go. And I’m not going to go because of the virus situation,” Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said to The Des Moines Register.
“Senator Alexander is an honorary chair of the Tennessee Trump campaign, but he will not be attending the convention because he believes the delegate spots should be reserved for those who have not had that privilege before as he has had,” a statement from the office of Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) said.
An aide for Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) said that the lawmaker “never made plans to attend the convention because she has never attended the national convention in years when she is up for election.”
Karina Borger, a spokeswoman for Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), noted that Murkowski “does not plan to attend the convention at this time.”
President Trump’s re-election campaign is in shambles, and the establishment operatives who have co-opted his efforts are clearly to blame.
WATCH: “Are You A Junkie?” Joe Biden FLIPS On CBS Reporter After Question About Cognitive Test
Biden didn’t appreciate the question.
Joe Biden responded angrily to a question from a CBS News reporter on taking a cognitive test Wednesday, asking Errol Barnett if he was a “junkie” and stating that he should have to take a drug test in order to interview Biden with the assumption he was taking cocaine.
“No, I haven’t taken a test… Why the hell would I take a test? Come on, man! That’s like saying to you, before you got on this program, you take a test whether you’re taking cocaine or not? Are you a junkie?”
The inference that CBS reporter Errol Barnett is a junkie would’ve almost certainly been blasted as offensive if President Trump or another public figure made the claim. At the most, Biden’s ad hominem response to the legitimate question reveals his sensitivity to claims of his own cognitive decline.
“I know you’re trying to goad me… I’m so looking forward to having an opportunity to sit with the president or stand with the president in the debates.”
President Trump has argued that Biden should take an equivalent of the Montreal Cognitive Fitness Test, which he took around a year ago with results indicating strong cognitive capacity. The question of mental acuity has consistently arisen as Biden frequently commits mental errors and gaffes during public appearances, ranging from forgetting which state he’s in, confusing his wife and his sister, and even forgetting what office he’s campaigning for.
Biden went on to struggle to pronounce the phrase “physical fitness.”
