Pat Robertson to Trump: It’s Over
PRRI’s latest data shows that white evangelical Protestants continue to be most likely to hold favorable views of President Donald Trump (59%). A slight majority of white Catholics (51%), as well as 34% of white mainline Protestants, view Trump favorably. On Monday, Pat Robertson, a longtime televangelist and fierce Trump supporter, advised the president to accept that President-elect Joe Biden would soon reside in the White House. “You know, with all his talent and the ability to be able to raise money and grow large crowds, the president still lives in an alternate reality,” Robertson said. “He really does. People say, ‘Well, he lies about this, that, and the other.’ But no, he isn’t lying; to him, that’s the truth.” “It’s a mixed bag,” Robertson conceded, “and I think it would be well to say, ‘You’ve had your day and it’s time to move on.’”

This week, House Republicans received an email from Molly A. Michael, special assistant to the president and Oval Office operations coordinator, that could indicate a final split between McConnell and President Trump. “A graphic was attached to the email, obtained by NBC News, and it showed a timeline of McConnell’s polling numbers since May against his 2020 Democratic challenger, Amy McGrath. It suggested that McConnell was re-elected only because of Trump. It said: ‘Sadly, Mitch forgot. He was the first one off the ship!’” reports NBC News
. In recent days, McConnell has publicly admitted that Joe Biden would be the next President of the United States.
