The Republicans blew an opportunity to reverse the damage done by China Joe. They were assisted by conservative media and MAGA commentators who ended up with egg on their faces after deceiving tens of millions of conservatives about what was really happening.
These organizations include the New York Post, Fox News, Fox Business, Mike Lindell’s Frank Speech channel, the Clay & Buck radio show, PJ Media, Townhall, the Daily Caller, and the Real America’s Voice network.
The New York Post predicted a “Red Tsunami” but then blamed former President Trump when it did not materialize. “There will be a big red wave” declared Conservative Political Action Coalition chairman Matt Schlapp on the Fox Business Network show Varney & Co. Mike Lindell’s Frank Speech channel called election day “Red Wave Day.”
On November 8, the day of the elections, Rush Limbaugh successors Clay Travis and Buck Seton declared, “The Rout Is On!” and said, “Make sure you vote today, then go home and watch the Red Tsunami.”
Kurt Schlichter of Townhall said “The next few days will be very difficult for the progressives, pinkos, commies, and other Democrats…”
The Daily Caller ran a “Red Wave 2022” feature.
The “Red Tsunami” turned out to be a Red Trickle or Whimper.
