Senior Republicans can’t seem to get Donald Trump to lay off Gov. Brian Kemp, as much as they wish he would. In an interview Thursday, the former president called Kemp “a disaster” and predicted that the governor he once embraced would lose in November.

“The only guys that win are the guys that embrace the MAGA movement,” Trump said on the “John Fredericks Radio Show” when asked about Youngkin’s chances against Democrat Terry McAuliffe, a former governor seeking a comeback. “When they try to go down a railroad track, you know, ‘Hey, oh yeah, sure, love it, love it. Oh, yeah, love Trump. Love Trump. Okay, let’s go, next subject.’ When they do that, nobody, they don’t — they never win. They never win. They have to embrace it.”
Trump answered in the affirmative when asked whether Youngkin, a political newcomer, and former private equity executive, can beat McAuliffe on Nov. 2 — yet that came with a “but.”
“I do,” Trump said. “But you know what I find, and he’s been very nice and all, but I did well in Virginia.”
Trump went on from there to suggest — without evidence — that his 10-point loss in the state last year was the result of voter fraud. Next came his comments on the balancing act and the need to embrace “Make America Great Again,” now often referred to as MAGA.
Youngkin’s campaign declined to comment.

Trump told the John Fredericks Radio Show on Real America’s Voice that Kemp was a “disaster” who had worked to make sure Republicans lost the 2020 presidential election.
The former president has frequently criticized Kemp since President Joe Biden carried the state of Georgia in November and the governor has resisted pressure from Trump to revisit the election results in a special session of the state legislature.
Trump said he was the one who got Kemp elected governor in 2018. The former president gave Kemp his endorsement during his campaign against Democrat Stacey Abrams, but Trump would later say he was “ashamed” to have endorsed him.
“Brian Kemp has not done the job,” Trump went on. “Far worse than not doing the job.”
Trump discussed potential challengers to Kemp, saying he didn’t know who would be running. The former president hasn’t endorsed any of Kemp’s primary opponents thus far.
“If somebody ran, they’d win in the Republican primary,” Trump said. “But he’s not going to be able to win the general election anyway because the base isn’t going to show up.”
Fredericks pointed to an upcoming special session of the Georgia state legislature in November that will carry out redistricting but will not revisit the state’s elections laws. The radio host said Kemp is refusing to put “an analysis” of the 2020 election “on the docket.”

Lead Contractor and Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan, CyFIR founder Ben Cotton, and others tasked with the state Senate -commissioned operation will show the results of the review to Senate President Karen Fann and Judiciary Chairman Warren Peterson at 1 p.m. local time Friday, according to a press release.
The much-anticipated results from the audit come after multiple delays and nearly five months since the audit began at Veterans Memorial Coliseum, where volunteers recounted nearly 2.1 million ballots in the county that President Joe Biden won, along with other procedures. The presentation will be live-streamed online and will not include public comments or questions.
The Senate liaison for the GOP-led audit, former Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, told Real America’s Voice on Wednesday that leadership is “vetting” the report ahead of the presentation. He added, “We’re not withholding anything,” quashing any rumors the Senate would attempt to block certain aspects of the report from the public’s view.

Pundits speculated that feud was cooling after McConnell stopped attacks
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is still persona non grata with former President Donald Trump.
The former president was quizzed on the issue during a radio interview on the John Fredericks Show, during which Mr. Fredericks brought up reports in various media outlets from April speculating that he may be mending ties with the GOP Senate leader. Mr. Trump held Mr. McConnell responsible for not whipping senators to vote in favour of objections to the counting of the Electoral College votes from several states due to the former president’s false claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election.
“No, no,” the former president said dismissively when Mr. Fredericks suggested their relationship was on the mend.
He went on to suggest that his endorsement was the reason that Mr. McConnell won reelection against a well-funded Democratic challenger, Amy McGrath, who raised nearly $90 million in her losing Senate bid while barely coming within 20 points of Mr. McConnell on Election Day.
“The only guys who win are the guys who embraced the MAGA movement,” Mr. Trump said, referring to the “Make America Great Again” slogan as well as the phenomenon that has gripped the Republican Party where loyalty to the former president frequently trumps all other qualities in primary elections.

Unsurprisingly, the people most upset by McConnell’s reticence are allies of former President Donald Trump, who once again this week called for McConnell’s removal as GOP leader.
“They ought to get themselves a new leader. He’s been there long enough,” Trump told The John Fredericks Show. “He’s a terrible–in a sense, he’s a terrible politician because he doesn’t get votes…So Mitch McConnell ought to be removed as the leader.”
Democrats quickly circulated the clip with glee, with Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesperson Jazmin Vargas quipping, “We look forward to hearing from GOP Senate candidates if they agree with President Trump’s assessment of McConnell.”
John Cardillo, a former Newsmax TV host, and Trump supporter with a substantial social media following, laced into McConnell on Thursday.
“Mitch McConnell and Joe Biden have been friends for nearly half a century,” Cardillo tweeted. “McConnell will protect Dementia Man at all costs.”
“Of course Mitch McConnell just shot down any talk that Biden would be impeached over Afghanistan,” added Emerald Robinson, Newsmax’s White House correspondent. “After all, he just helped Biden get elected in 2020. Along with most of the GOP establishment. Remember?”
Trump and his allies have been pummeling McConnell for months, to nearly no effect. None of the Trump-aligned Senate Republicans have attempted a coup and most have shrugged off the calls to boot McConnell.
