Our new book is titled Divided We Stand: The 2020 Elections and American Politics. Among other things, it discusses the state of the parties. The state of the GOP is not good.
Emily Brooks at The Hill:
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) condemned white nationalist figure Nick Fuentes after former President Trump dined with Fuentes and rapper Ye at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida last week.
But McCarthy did not place blame on Trump.
“I don’t think anybody should be spending any time with Nick Fuentes,” McCarthy told reporters outside the White House on Tuesday after a meeting with other top congressional leaders and President Biden. “He has no place in this Republican Party.”
“I think President Trump came out four times and condemned him and didn’t know who he was,” McCarthy said.
A reporter noted Trump did not condemn Fuentes’s ideology.
“The Jews had better start being nice to people like us, because what comes out of this is going to get a lot uglier for them…”— Jaime Kirzner-Roberts (@jaimekr) November 25, 2022
