The Republican candidate for governor of Kentucky plummeted five points after Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) dropped in on the 2019 election eve. We knew that McConnell has been very unpopular with the state he was supposed to represent, but has not. Still, Kentucky was supposed to be the canary in the mine for the president. It looks as if this canary is dead. This was how POTUS responded.
In his black-is-white-white-is-black first tweet of the morning, Trump predicted that McConnell would “win big in Kentucky next year.” What would the Senate look like if McConnell lost in 2020? Even if the Democrats did not win the whole Senate, catapulting Moscow Mitch from his seat would be extraordinary:
‘Based on the Kentucky results, Mitch McConnell @senatemajldr will win BIG in Kentucky next year!’
Trump was glued to the television waiting for Republican results:
‘Congratulations to @tatereeves on winning Governor of the Great State of Mississippi. Our big Rally on Friday night moved the numbers from a tie to a big WIN. Great reaction under pressure Tate!’
This was the president’s wishful thinking about Kentucky’s results:
‘The Kentucky gubernatorial race is still too close to call, but you can see the results of the other races here –> bit.ly/2yWHuRD #KyElection’
POTUS tried to take credit for a Kentucky governor win:
‘Our big Kentucky Rally on Monday night had a massive impact on all of the races. The increase in Governors race was at least 15 points, and maybe 20! Will be in Louisiana for @EddieRispone on Wednesday night. Big Rally!’
The GOP’s Kentucky governor was much like Trump, but “No one energizes” the base like POTUS does:
‘No one energizes our base like @realDonaldTrump. In Kentucky, the governor was down 17 points. President Trump helped lift the entire ticket, winning 5 of 6 statewide races so far!’
“Fake news will blame” Trump for losses. True:
‘#ElectionNight Won 5 out of 6 elections in Kentucky, including 5 great candidates that I spoke for and introduced last night. @MattBevin picked up at least 15 points in last days, but perhaps not enough (Fake News will blame Trump!). Winning in Mississippi Governor race!’
Enough of that according to POTUS. He was in his more-about-me mode in the darkest hours of the morning, saying there would be “no case” for impeachment:
”Based on the things I’ve seen, the Democrats have no case, or a weak case, at best. I don’t think there are, or will be, well founded articles of Impeachment here.” Robert Wray, respected former prosecutor. It is a phony scam by the Do Nothing Dems!’
‘Thank you to Kurt Volker, U.S. Envoy to Ukraine, who said in his Congressional Testimony, just released, “You asked what conversations did I have about that quid pro quo, et cetra. NONE, because I didn’t know there was a quid pro quo.” Witch Hunt!’
‘Stock Markets (all three) hit another ALL TIME & HISTORIC HIGH yesterday! You are sooo lucky to have me as your President (just kidding!). Spend your money well!
