Chris Wallace Calls Trump And GOP Losers, Trey Gowdy Reminds CNN Host What Losing Really Looks Like

CNN anchor Chris Wallace trashed former President Donald Trump and the Republican Party on his new network saying Republicans like Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears (R-VA) were disavowing Trump because the GOP underperformed in the midterms.

Sears said of Fox News: “I could not support him. I just couldn’t because we have seen, for example, in those states where he has endorsed the candidates. In fact, Republicans on the same ticket who he did not endorse overperformed, whereas his candidates totally underperformed by as much as ten points. We have a clear mission, and it is time to move on.”

Chris Wallace said on CNN: “One of the things that strikes me about that comment in from Lieutenant Governor Sears is Donald Trump helped incite the insurrection on January 6. 

“He’s been talking, spreading election lies for the last two years, but why is she and other Republicans breaking with him? 

“Because Republican candidates underperformed by ten points this week. 

“You know, in the end, that’s what it’s all about it seems about for the Republican Party. 

“It’s not a matter of principle. 

“It’s not a matter of the truth. 

“It’s a matter of who’s a winner and who’s a loser. 

“And right now, for instance, Ron DeSantis, who won a landslide, a 20-point victory in Florida, looks very much like a winner. 

“And Donald Trump, who backed a number of candidates who, as Lieutenant Governor Sears said, underperformed, looks kind of like a loser.

“And for a guy who has based his whole persona on, you know, where you’re going to be, we’re going to win so often you’re going to get tired of winning. 

“I think some Republicans are getting tired of losing.”

The Democrats spent four years portraying Trump, falsely as a Russian agent because they thought it would help them win, not because it was true.

It is all about winning in politics and in television, and in the cable ratings, Trey Gowdy is crushing Wallace.

According to Fox News:

FNC’s Sunday Night in America with Trey Gowdy (Sundays, 7 PM/ET), outpaced every CNN and MSNBC weekend program in both categories, drawing an audience of 1.4 million viewers and 115,000 in the 25-54 demo, easily defeating CNN’s Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace? (449,000 P2+; 78,000 A25-54).
