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 Republican risks losing the Virginia governor’s race if he doesn’t, according to the former president.

“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.”

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.

The Times finds fault with John as a journalist. But that’s not fair, John is a talk show call-in Host. He’s not pitching himself as Edward R. Murrow. NYT is upset with what they thought was Fredericks softball interview with Trump. I disagree. John did what he could to get Trump to make news on his show. Trump didn’t bite. Not John’s fault. 95% of John’s listeners are pro-Trump. What did NYT expect?
THE NEW YORK TIMES:
When Will Trump Answer the Big 2024 Question?
The field of would-be Republican candidates remains frozen while the former president decides his next moves.
Last week, during a 51-minute interview on “The John Fredericks Show,” a radio program syndicated across Virginia, former President Donald J. Trump dodged a half-dozen opportunities to say whether he is planning to run for president once again in 2024.
Mr. Fredericks, who alongside his radio gig also served as a chairman of Mr. Trump’s campaigns in Virginia, began questions with “If you’re inaugurated as president again in 2025,” and “I think you’re going to run and win in 2024.” He asked, “How many seats do the Republicans have to win in 2022 to inspire you to run in 2024?”
Hard-hitting journalism this was not.
Still, it did cut to the heart of the biggest question in Republican politics: When will Mr. Trump announce his plans for 2024?
For months the best working theory had been that he would wait as long as possible, both to freeze the rest of the potential 2024 Republican field and to keep as much attention as possible on himself, his endorsements, and political proclamations.

Radio Host John Fredericks: Raffensperger’s Office Tried to Intimidate Election Witness to Recant Her Statement on Alleged Fraudulent Ballots (VIDEO)
Overnight it was reported that in Georgia a ‘box’ of ballots was unsealed and opened up by the Secretary of State’s office in Georgia. This was after the district judge ordered Raffensperger to not touch the ballots in Fulton County :
After several Fulton County, Ga., poll monitors testified last year that boxes of mail-in ballots for Joe Biden looked liked they’d been run through a photocopy machine, state investigators quietly broke the seal on one suspicious box and inspected the hundreds of votes it contained for signs of fraud, RealClearInvestigations has learned exclusively.
On Wednesday morning radio host John Fredericks joined Steve Bannon on The War Room to discuss this explosive development.
