Donald Trump changed the Republican Party forever when he declared his candidacy for President back in 2015.
The establishment fought Trump even through the 2020 election.
And Donald Trump threatened to quit the Republican Party forever in one stunning phone call.
ABC reporter Jonathan Karl is one of the many corporate media Leftists trying to cash in one more time on Donald Trump’s Presidency.
Karl is out with a new hit piece book on Trump called Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show.
From the title, readers can clearly infer that Karl intends this book to be another attack on Trump.
In the book, Karl claims that, on January 20, Trump blasted Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel for being insufficiently loyal to Trump by not fighting hard enough to expose what Trump claimed was massive voter fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election.
Trump – Karl claimed – got so heated that he even threatened to leave the GOP and start his own political party which terrified McDaniel.
“I’m done,” Trump told McDaniel. “I’m starting my own party.”
“You cannot do that,” McDaniel told Trump. “If you do, we will lose forever.”
“Exactly. You lose forever without me,” Trump responded. “I don’t care… This is what Republicans deserve for not sticking up for me.”
Both McDaniel and Trump denied this conversation ever took place.
Karl claimed those denials were “lies” and cited unnamed sources that backed up the version of events that Karl recounted in his book.
But this episode highlighted the problem with so-called “journalists” in the Trump era.
Karl is a hardcore liberal and Trump hater.
Americans are supposed to take the word of a partisan activist in the media when the only “evidence” Karl presents to support his reporting are the words of unnamed sources.
Without knowing who these “sources” are, it is impossible to evaluate the veracity of what they told Karl.
Back in 2018, The New York Times published an anonymous op-ed by a supposedly senior Trump administration staffer outlining the grave concerns the senior levels of the government held about Trump’s leadership and temperament.
The Times made it seem like Trump’s top aides all doubted the President and worked to subvert his administration.
But it turned out “anonymous” was really a junior staffer in the Department of Homeland Security named Miles Taylor.
Without Karl revealing who is the source of the information about the conversation between Trump and McDaniel, readers are left wondering if the source was just making this all up or it was another “anonymous” situation.
