During his rally on the eve of the second round of elections in Georgia, President Donald Trump expressed frustration over his now familiar comfort piñatas – Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, the United States Supreme Court and the RINOs of all edges – as he struggles to face his loss in the 2020 election.
But on the stage Monday night in Dalton, Ga., He added a new one: Vice President Mike Pence.
“I hope Mike Pence will come for us,” Trump said, in front of an enthusiastic crowd of supporters. “If he doesn’t pass, I won’t love him so much.”
The ostensible purpose of Trump’s trip to Georgia was to stimulate the senses. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA) as they fight to take their seats in the Senate – and the GOP majority in the Senate in Tuesday’s election – not to make a veiled threat to vice -President to somehow block the certification of Joe Biden’s electoral college victory Wednesday in the Senate.
But that was just one of many moments in a long speech in which the outgoing president delivered his shallow lines in favor of GOP senators, but buried them in winding tirades in which he gave New lies and old conspiracies about the 2020 election are surfacing. The focus, as always, was on him and the elections that just passed, not the two GOP senators facing an extremely consequential election looming on Tuesday .
The President used his perch at Dalton – possibly his last major political rally before stepping down – to solidify his list of enemies in front of his most staunch supporters. After openly encouraging a main challenge to Kemp, his former ally who refused to overturn Georgian election results, at a rally last month, Trump on Monday vowed to personally campaign against Kemp when he is re-elected. next year.
“I’ll be here in about a year and a half to campaign against your governor,” Trump said. “I guarantee it.”
Trump also spoke about Brad Raffensperger, Georgia’s Secretary of State, a day after the Washington post reported a call between the two in which Trump urged Raffensperger to “recalculate” the election results and find 11,000 new ones for himself.
The country’s high court was also booed and mocked at the rally, for failing to entertain the Trump team’s failed legal effort to overturn the 2020 election. “I’m not happy with the Supreme Court,” s complains Trump. “They are not getting to the plate.”
The president also hinted at some future targets of his anger – some of whom were sitting in the crowd. On two occasions, Trump has expressed frustration that Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), who campaigned for Loeffler and Perdue in Georgia and was in Dalton, did not sign a damaging effort by GOP senators to block the Biden Electoral College. victory. On Monday, Lee circulated a letter among senators opposing the effort.
“I’m a little angry with you today,” Trump told Lee from the stage. Later he said, “I just want Mike Lee to listen to this, when I speak.
The president also nodded to a future star of the MAGA movement – new Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), a QAnon-embracing conspiracy theorist who represents Dalton. Trump invited her to speak from the podium, where she pleaded for increased participation.
“Our district needs to show up,” she said. “We are not going to let Georgia turn to radical socialists.” Indeed, Perdue and Loeffler will need a massive turnout on Election Day in this very red region of Georgia – which has fallen behind in early voting – to win.
When Trump spoke about the run-off, he focused on Democratic candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, with attacks as much as he praised GOP senators.
“You can’t lose these two people… they’re the most respected people,” Trump said of the duo. “The Democrats are trying to rob the White House, you can’t let them … David and Kelly are running against the most extreme Liberal candidates in the history of your state, possibly in the history of your country.”
When Loeffler had his moment at the microphone, most of his precious time focused on Trump and his pledge to oppose Electoral College certification on Wednesday, the day after the second round.
“It’s true,” she said to cheers. “We will get there!”
