Buck Sexton, the host of “The Buck Sexton Show,” said Thursday that the Republican old guard seems keen on abandoning ship while President Trump contests the 2020 election results, and said they envision a return to the old days in Washington, D.C.
Sexton pointed to a column by Karl Rove in the Wall Street Journal that essentially calls Trump’s effort to overturn the election futile. (This, of course, comes just days after his old boss, George W. Bush, congratulated Joe Biden on his election win.)
Rove’s column was titled, “This Election Result Won’t Be Overturned.”
“Karl Rove, in many ways, is the epitome of the quintessential establishment Republican,” Sexton said. “He’s a guy that wants to return to the old era where there are very well paid consultants and TV commentators who go in and out of administrations for all of their political expertise” and when they lose, they don’t really lose.
“There’s no mandate for them to do very much at all, you know?” Sexton said. They just pride themselves on losing in a gentlemanly fashion.
The media is currently trying to do their best to make it seem that former administrations handled these transitions of power with ease and grace. There were even photos recently released showing then-President Obama with Trump in the Oval Office shortly after the real estate billionaire defeated Hillary Clinton.
The media tried its best to present the photo as some kind of magnanimous act by Obama, but failed to mention the secretive meeting held in that same office where he discussed Michael Flynn and the investigation into alleged Russian efforts to help the Trump campaign. Gregg Jarrett, a Fox News legal analyst, said in May that it seems Flynn was targeted because he could have exposed the “Russia hoax.”
Sexton said Trump is essentially a Republican Party disrupter. He said Republicans like Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, lack bite and get “slapped around” and then say, “Sorry, I hurt your hand with my face.”
“Karl Rove wants us to go back to that because some people do very well in that system,” Sexton said. “They get on board seats; they get seven-figure contributor deals at major cable networks…They’re still, while opposed by the other side of the aisle, it’s understood that they’re one of the players. It’s understood that they’re at the big boy table.”
