Former President Donald Trump unloaded on supposed RINO (Republican-in-name-only) Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) on Saturday, claiming she was even “worse than a Democrat.”
“This is your precious chance to dump the horrific RINO Senator Lisa Murkowski, who’s worse than a Democrat. She’s worse than a Democrat,” the former Commander-in-Chief said during a Save America rally in Anchorage.
“Murkowski has been in the Senate for 21 years. Her father held the seat for 21 years before. She’s a total creature of the Washington swamp, but much worse than that, and a tool of a corrupt establishment, the likes of which we’ve never seen,” Trump gleefully continued. “The fake news media loves her.”
Critics of Murkowski are legion. She was a vocal opponent of Trump’s America First agenda, causing him to brand her as having, “betrayed the Alaska voter” and as being “one of the most destructive, two-faced RINOs” in the entire coutnry.
Trump won Murkowski’s home state by over 10 percentage points. He also supported Alaska-centric policies like ANWR (Arctic National Wildlife Refuge), which Trump claimed the moderate Republican Senator helped end.
Murkowski also voted against the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh — one of the High Court judges who voted to strike down Roe v. Wade — and she was the first GOP senator to call on Trump to resign. In short, she has not been a friend of the MAGA movement.
Her criticisms of President Biden have been much milder — A trait seemingly shared by other Republican establishment Senators. After all, Murkowski voted to confirm Biden’s radical leftist SCOTUS pick, Ketanji Brown Jackson.
More recently, the Senator reportedly signed on to support a series of gun-control bills giving more power to the Federal Government.
Alaska is a reliably red state. That’s why it is remarkable its people are represented by someone supporting an America Last agenda in our Senate.
As a result, Trump has campaigned for a number of America First Candidates in the country’s northernmost state– including Murkowski’s opponent, Kelly Tshibaka.
Trump is right about one thing — if we have the choice between RINOs and America First patriots, we ought to go for the latter every time. The future of our country may depend on it. America is too valuable a thing to waste by empowering RINOs like Murkowski, who fail to realize what is really at stake — when our great Republic is run by the likes of Biden and Kamala Harris.
We deserve better. Alaska deserves better. In 2022 and 2024, the nation will have its chance to choose which is better: A Government supportive of a MAGA agenda that worked for four robust years, or those who prefer that America take a back seat to the rest of the world and continue to stumble culturally, economically and politically. The choice is entirely ours.
