Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has called out “lazy” Republicans trying to blame President Donald Trump for the midterm elections results.
While the GOP is close to its goals of sweeping Congress, it wasn’t the “red tsunami” many were hoping for.
Most expect the GOP will take the House but by a much smaller margin than predicted.
The Senate, however, is very close and may come down to a runoff.
So it is premature to cast blame because the GOP may still pull it off.
Some Republicans have tried to blame Trump for not delivering the result they wanted.
Greene blasted those blaming Trump as “wimpy.”
“Now, they’re trying to blame President Trump today,” Greene said.
“And I want to tell you how shortsighted and ridiculous that is, it is pathetic the people that are running out saying it’s his fault.
“No, that is a lazy, pathetic, wimpy, easy mindset.
“They just want one thing and then they want to carry on without doing the hard work – the real changes in the Republican Party and the way we fight the fight.
“Here’s why it’s not Trump’s fault.
“Trump has been being politically persecuted for the past few years now, ever since January 6th.
“He went out and did 30 ‘Save America’ rallies all over the country, he endorsed something like 285 candidates.
“He held over 50 fundraisers, helped raise over $350 million for all these public tax patients.
“President Trump isn’t the problem.
“President Trump is doing everything he can to help Republicans across the country and help Republicans win while he is being politically persecuted worse than any human being in our country’s history.
“That’s the real truth.
“People that want to blame Trump, they are lazy.
“And that’s the problem,” she said.
“We have to do the real work, fix our issues and our party to fix issues in our state elections and all over the country.”
Thank you Georgia’s 14th district for putting your faith in me to be your voice and your representative in Washington.
It’s my privilege and my honor.
Thank you to all who support me. I am 100% dedicated to fight for America and the American people. I’m looking forward to it.
