Longtime GOP strategist turns back on Trump

The political fallout from the U.S. Capitol riots has been nothing less than extreme, with President Donald Trump taking the brunt of the blame for allegedly inciting tens of thousands of his supporters into a frenzied attack on the Capitol Building.

According to the Daily Caller, a number of Trump’s former friends and supporters are coming out against him, with the latest being former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer saying in a recent interview that the president is now “on his own.” 

The GOP strategist, who worked in the White House under former President George W. Bush and often makes appearances on Fox News made it clear that he no longer supports the president’s rhetoric or actions on the heels of the Capitol siege that left five American citizens dead.

“At this point, I won’t defend him anymore,” Fleischer told the Associated Press. “I won’t defend him for stirring the pot that incited the mob. He’s on his own.”

Fleischer took a little heat on the matter himself, as he seemed to blame Democrats and their protest of Trump entering office in 2016 for setting the stage for the massive protest that would take place on January 6 in the nation’s capital. However, his tweet came just minutes before the massive, pro-Trump crowd would turn the situation violent.

“If you don’t like what’s happening today, maybe you should go back four years, look in the mirror and ask if it was a good idea to declare #NotMyPresident, declare yourself the Resistance, and boycott an Inaugural. When one side violates norms, the other side will too,” Fleischer tweeted.

Fleischer is one of a growing list of Republicans who have come out against the president in light of what went down on a day that will certainly live in infamy. Another example was Sen. Lindsey Graham, who on the night of the siege used his remarks on the Senate floor to essentially say he was done with the president’s fight to overturn the election.

According to the Wall Street Journal, House Democrats are expected to fast-track articles of impeachment against Trump for his role in inciting Wednesday’s riot, with a potential vote taking place as soon as Monday.

Ari is just trying to hang on to the swamp. Doesn’t he know that he will be used by the Liberals just like Mitt, Murkowski, John McCain, Susan Collins, etc. All of these so-called Republicans that are jumping are RINO”s hoping to stay on the DC gravy train. Sure shows their core values.

You couldn’t be more right!! And yet, it wasn’t Trump’s supporters who breeched the capitol. We should have know the domestic terrorist groups would have plotted and been encouraged to infiltrate their ranks. As one man who was there said, the mood was light, everyone was singing and waving their flags and suddenly, without warning, flash bangs went off. No one knew who threw them or where it was coming from. He also said there was no security to be seen. Was this planned by those who oppose the president? Probably. He never encouraged anyone to commit violence, that’s what the liberals do, what Maxine Watters encouraged her handful of followers to do, and got away with it. This entire mess was orchestrated by the left.

The republicans are just as much a part of the swamp as democrats are. It’s never going to end until we have term limits in the Congress and Senate.

They are afraid of Trump, afraid he will let the world know who is involved and who is the leader of the “Deep State”. The way Pelosi is acting and going off the deep end, I believe she is one of them. I also believe Soros is #1.

These left over Republicans can not see past their egos.
The 47 million votes are no longer Republican votes.
They are Donald Trump votes!
I and the rest left the repub-spineless party when they did not fight the unconstitutional law suits early last year.
I only voted for Donald Trump.
He or whom ever he supports on mid term and 2024 will get the 47 million votes the relub-spineless turned their backs on.

Why isn’t anyone placing the blame where it belongs. Thrives that stole the elections were the evil Democrats. If it was a fair election there would not be a stop the steal rally. There would be many cities burst to the ground. Nancy Peloci should be arrested for inciting a coup. Period.

The deceitful, back-stabbing DemRats have stooped to another new low: actually hiring their own dissidents to dress and pretend to be on the Trump side, storming the Capitol and defacing property, a malfeasance they clearly knew would not sit well and causing the four injuries and one death, blaming it all on the Republicans – a gigantic lie and most of America knows fully well that only DemRats have so few ethics, moral turpitude and disregard for human life to do such a thing. Bullies, cheats, liars and thieves will gain some in their foul play but they will not win forever. The 74MM voters for Donald Trump will not fade into the night because America recognizes the cesspool that has been created over the last forty years which all culminated in the DemRat’s political debauchery last week. I believe the Left will taste retribution and they’ll squeal like the barnyard-wallowing pigs they are.

IT IS TIME FOR TRUMP TO FORM THE FOURTH PARTY, CALL IT THE MAGA, OR THE PATRIOT PARTY AND GET PEOPLE IN THE PARTY TO HELP HIM AND NOTHING FROM THE OTHER PARTIES. HE HAS MOST OF THE LAW ENFORCEMENT AND MILITARY BACKING HIM AND 75 MILLION VOTERS AND MOST OF ALL VETERANS IN THE USA. HE WOULD WIN HANDS DOWN FORM IT NOW AND GET HIS PARTY IN CONTROL OF THE HOUSE AND SENATE IN 2 YEARS, HE COULD DELCLARE A NATIONAL EMERGENCY, MARTIAL LAW, THIS ELECTIONS NULL AND VOID AND HAVE ANOTHER ELECTION WITH THE 4 PARTIES INVOLVED, CITIZENSHP ONLY VOTING ALL VERIFIED.

I enjoyed reading the previous remarks and
agree with all. It is too late for President
Trump this election; but he and we deserve
to have these six states’ election results
audited. Otherwise we shall, always,
have doubts in future elections.
I just pray, somehow, someway, President
Trump finds a way to still communicate
with us during the next four years.
It will give us the encouragement we
need until he can run, again, in 2024🇺🇸🇺🇸

My thought is do not give one dime to the Republican senate committee, donate to the individuals. If you give to the Senate committee, the RINOS like Murkowsky and Romney and others will get some of your money. We need to break the back of the RINOs and the Deep State.
I hope Rush is wrong in his thinking that win won’t be able to win back the House and/or theSenate, because the Democrats have learned how to steal all elections from here on out, without election laws being changed. He may be right as neither party seems to have any interest in eliminating election fraud. If so it is over for America.

Trump, someone mention for you to leave the Rico Republican Party. Its true they’ve done nothing but sided with the Democratic Swamp Rats stabbing you in the back.
Like Walter mention start a new party naming it MAGA party.
What the entire Democratic Party did to you is a total disgraced. Like you said everytime we need to stick together and stay strong.
You are the one and only Leader thats made Americans feel damned proud again.
You have a lot of supporters that still will you back 100% .
We know, you’ve been falsely accused of things you didn’t do. We the true Americans will support you in 2024.
You made other Countries start respecting us and made sure they start paying there share. Also you never lied to the American People, kept all your promises made to us.
You corrected the mess, that the criminal Obama administration before you left.
As for all those Rinos that back stabbed our Commander in Chief watch your words carefully cause they come back to bike you in the butt.
Never forget Trump has 75 Million people backing him up.
Trump 2020 you didn’t lose Commander it was stolen.

I lived in communist China in 2010 and attended a university that not only can you get a master’s degree in Marxism, but had a statue of Chairman Mao who had over 47 million Chinese murdered in his OWN country. I was lucky to find ONE toilet in that country ! They had porcelain holes in the ground that you have to squat over. The stench was so bad that you could smell it when you walk into the main lobby and by the plush building I lived in ! The electrical wiring was hanging down from the ceiling of both buildings. I am doing EVERYthing I can to STOP COMMUNISM from occurring in the United States !!! So go to

Since when did speaking to a crowd become inciting a riot. I watch the whole rally and Trump never once told anyone to riot or enter the Capital Building. Ari is and has always been 1 of the good ole boys (SWAMP). I do agree that the protesters should have never breached the Capital and cause the riot. I’m sure if they look close enough and honestly (which they want) they’ll find a bought and paid for Antifa and BLM instigation.

I cannot be more disappointed in the party of 2nd! I would like all of the money back that I donated to this fake Republican Party. For the few that have integrity! I am sorry your work has been for not! Your Rino’s thought they were better than you! This election is an entire sham! You have cheated the people. A resurrection of this vote should be mandatory to restore our country! You flat out cheated and you refuse to even look at it ? You spent millions of our money trying toy bring the President down! OUR MONEY! Now spend yours and prove to us we are wrong? You did this? Not the 74 million people whose voted did not count! This is unacceptable! I will never accept this China dragon and minions as my President. Their is 0 trust in this party.

Ari, Barr, Tunney, Romney and Mitch are all part of the swamp. On 1-6-21 while in Washington DC I met a large number of hard working American citizens. The swamp has developed a two tier justice system. The Supreme Court did not protect my legal vote on 11-3-20. In my 70 years President Trump has been the most honest and transparent. Illegal immigration is a form of slavery. I love people who put up fences and gates around their property and support open borders. I am not a rioter like took place this last summer with so much destruction of private property. God Bless the Trump team. Those who left the team are not for Freedom or Liberty. Reform 230.
