There Was A Red Wave And Trump Was Responsible, Host Claims

( )- In an opinion column at The National Pulse, former Fox contributor Gina Loudon attempted to dispute the media outlets that suggest Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is the future of the Republican Party.

Loudon accused the media of trying to create division by claiming that Ron DeSantis is “now set up to take out President Trump for 2024.”

She complained that if DeSantis does want to be president someday, “he should be willing to express his gratitude to President Trump for getting him over the line in 2018.” As if DeSantis offering heartfelt thanks to Donald Trump in his 2018 acceptance speech wasn’t enough.

Yes, Trump did help DeSantis defeat Democrat Andrew Gillum by less than one point in 2018. But his 19-point landslide reelection four years later was all on DeSantis and his accomplishments as governor.

Loudon, a rabid Trump supporter, also demanded that Ron DeSantis should wait his turn.

She admitted that the America First movement needs “successors to Trump,” but added that DeSantis could be one of those successors “if he can just be patient.”

Loudon argued that DeSantis supporters trying to “crown him king of the GOP” after several of the candidates DeSantis campaigned for lost their midterm doesn’t “really work in America First’s favor.”

What on earth does that have to do with anything?

Of course, Ron DeSantis campaigned for Republicans nationwide. As the most popular elected Republican in the country, DeSantis wanted to help flip Congress back to the GOP, so he went on the campaign trail and offered his support.

Just because some of the candidates he campaigned for didn’t win doesn’t negate the fact that Ron DeSantis would be a popular choice in the 2024 primary. If having some of your endorsed candidates lose means you can’t run for president in 2024, Donald Trump would be out of luck.

In her column, Loudon was also angry that anyone would dare to describe last week’s Midterm as a “red trickle,” calling it a “risible” falsehood.


The Democrats still hold the majority in the Senate and Republicans barely eked out a majority in the House. That sounds more like a trickle than a wave.
