Every day that Joe Biden is president, former President Donald Trump earns a little more popularity.
On Wednesday, fake news network CNN featured columnist Michael Gerson, who declared that Trump WILL be president again.
“A dire warning from a top aide to George W. Bush,” the CNN host said. “In a new op-ed, Michael Gerson writes, it is increasingly effort that the nightmare prospect of American politics unified Republican controlled federal government in the hands of a re-elected empowered Donald Trump in 2025 is also the likely outcome. Michael Gerson joins me now. Number one, you say it’s coming, like a a Donald Trump victory. I want to take the first part first quickly. Why do you think it is coming and maybe even likely that Donald Trump gets elected?”
“Sorry to ruin people’s coffee, but we need to recognize the reality here,” Gerson replied. “All of this information is coming out that Donald Trump made a serious concerted attempt to overturn the 2020 election. So we are gaining information on his lawlessness. Second, we are seeing the party, the Republican Party, rather than revolting against this, is embracing it. He’s becoming more popular. This is creating a feedback loop of radicalization with the president and his strongest supporters. And we also have to recognize that the political trend, the normal political trends are going in the short and medium term. In the Republican direction."
“This is not just because of bad democratic messaging. It’s because of the coalitions that they have in a presidential election. We’re polarized by education and it gives Republicans significant advantages on our map the way it’s done. So I don’t consider this alarmism. I consider this just description of where we are right now,” he continued.
“As for what it means, you write, many of the professionals and patriots who opposed him, Trump in his final days, would have been weeded out long before he was re-elected. There is no reason Trump would not try to solidify personal power over military and federal law enforcement unit to employee as a bully’s club in times of civil disorder. There is no reason he would refrain from using federal resources to undermine freedom of the press and change the outcome of elections. You are basically saying there will be dictatorial powers,” the anchor stated.
“Yes. There will be limitations in the judiciary and other places. But we have seen he wants to centralize federal power to serve his interests and undermine his opponents. That is what we’re seeing from the historical record of his first term. I think he would have significantly fewer obstacles in his second term. You look at what happened in the Justice Department before the 2020 election. The president didn’t succeed just because of a few honorable people stood up. But the reality is here we have a Republican front-runner for the 2024 election and I think we need to take that very seriously," he added.
“You see it is not alarmism but being descriptive. Do you think people get it, or which people or institutions now do you think need to get a better grasp on this?” Gerson replied. “Well, the first one is just the Democratic Party. I mean, you look at these trends, which I talk about in the piece, and they’re going to need to win in places where they’re not currently winning. That means that, you know, the median voter they’re seeking is to their right. Right now all The National messaging is on a $3.5 trillion plan which is defined by that number rather than anything that would be done. They are focused on internal battles within the party. They need to be focused on this external threat and the reality of who they need to reach. And I think Republicans need to take this seriously, too, like me. In the near term, it is important for Democrats to win in, for example, the midterm elections. This is going to require something hard for Republicans, which is to vote strategically for Democrats because parties don’t change unless they lose. And the Republican Party, if it goes for victory to victory with this content, with this message, is a true threat to the republic."
