'Weak or stupid': Trump lashes out at Republican officials — even as they continue to defend him
Donald Trump lashed out at Republicans for not further embracing his debunked conspiracy theories about the 2020 election.
"We don't have a free and fair press any more media anymore," Trump said on the far-right network. "This is not free and you know, you look at communist countries. That's what happens, nobody can talk, and when you can't talk, there's nothing to discuss."
He then pushed his conspiracy theories about the election, which he decisively lost to President Joe Biden.
"Republicans don't want to talk about it, the weak or stupid or RINOs or call them whatever you want," he complained. "And yet the voter, the Republican voter, that's what they want to hear. They want to hear about 2020."
"They want to find out what's going on. The Republican voter wants the story, the weak Republican politician doesn't want to talk about this story because they think it's bad politically. I think it's great politically, I think it's great politically," Trump said of continuing to push his "Big Lie"
He then complained that he can't veto legislation coming from Congress because Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell did not overturn the will of the voters and end democracy in America.
"If Mitch McConnell fought in the Senate for election integrity, you would have lots of vetoes coming out right now out of the White House because you'd have a different president," Trump said. "But other than fundraising, he's very weak."
