When Roy Moore won the GOP nomination against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s hand-picked candidate, he made it clear he was going to Washington to “Drain the Swamp.”
That’s why the GOP establishment went all out to defeat Moore.
And when the dust settled, the fake news media emerged as the biggest winner.
The GOP establishment embraced The Washington Post when it published decades-old allegations of Roy Moore’s impropriety.
One RINO Senator even wrote a check to Moore’s Democrat opponent who supports abortion-on-demand up to the moment of birth.
Senator McConnell hopes Moore’s defeat will go out as a warning to any Senator who thinks of crossing him that he and The Swamp are still in charge.
Instead, it just further undermines Republicans’ credibility going into the 2018 elections.
For countless election cycles, the GOP establishment sells the base on the “need to coalesce around the nominee” after the primary is over.
But when the establishment refused to do just that with Roy Moore and instead joined in with the media’s lynch mob, why would anyone in the GOP base believe them when they hear that claim again?
The media is trying to claim the moral high ground in this fight by claiming they exposed and defeated a “sexual predator” based on rumor and in one case, admittedly tampered evidence.
But when that same media doesn’t believe that killing an unborn child right before birth isn’t a disqualifier for office, but Moore’s dating habits in the 1970s were; is there really any moral high ground to stand on?
The media is quick to claim that Alabamians handed Trump a “major defeat.”
In reality, the election was decided by fewer than 21,000 votes (1.5%) after a month-long media onslaught.
This election was hardly the referendum on the Trump agenda the media would like it to be.
The only ones who really come out weaker out of all this are the GOP establishment and Mitch McConnell.
Their actions exposed them for all to see, and the 2018 GOP primaries are right around the corner.
