Dick Morris Trump Sycophancy (And DeSantis-Bashing) Watch
Topic: Newsmax

Newsmax's Dick Morris is nothing if not a totally committed Trump sycophant, and his full Trump suck-up mode has continued since we last checked in:

Morris also devoted a June 5 column to further explaining why Trump should not debate his primary opponents and should set the rules if he does:

A Republican debate without Trump would be like one hand clapping!

And specifically, why should Trump agree to a debate sponsored by Fox News?

That’s like going into the lions’ den. Rupert Murdoch is a sworn enemy of Trump and shows it every day in Fox News’ biased coverage of his campaign — or non-coverage.

Trump should demand:

1.) No debates sponsored by Fox,CNN, or MSNBC.

2.) No press or pundit or media panel. Don’t let this become a debate between Trump and Megyn Kelly like in 2016 or between Trump and Chris Wallace as in 2020. These guys should butt out of the debates. Just the candidates, a timekeeper, and a stopwatch.

3.) Twelve candidates is too much for a debate. Just invite the top five in the polls. Trump, DeSantis, and the top three of the rest of the field.

4.) And say no to Chair McDaniel’s pretentious and ridiculous pre conditions for participating in the debate: Guaranteeing to back the GOP candidate in 24 and not participating in any debate the RNC doesn’t sponsor. Who died and left Ronna in charge?

Its no debate without Trump and he should refuse to debate under McDaniel’s rules.

There was also sucking up to Trump following his (second) indictment:

We've noted that Morris wrote a June 13 column insisting that Trump's indictment somehow hurts Hillary Clinton.

Morris also took shots at Ron DeSantis, who has been considered a top rival to Trump for the Republican presidential nomination:

Morris also wrote a June 5 column claiming that DeSantis' anti-Trump messaging is failing:

Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., is searching for a message in his attacks on Donald Trump.

He hasn’t found one yet.

As a political consultant, it occurs to me that this search might have been more profitably conducted before — rather than after — he announced his candidacy. But each of the themes with which the Florida governor has experimented have fallen short.

He said Trump was a "loser," citing Republican defeats in 2022, but MAGA voters realize that Trump led us to retaking the House and beat Hillary Clinton in the Armageddon race of 2016.

Some loser!


Nobody will believe that Trump is soft on crime, lacking in substance, moving to the left, pro-abortion rights, or an inveterate loser.

But they will believe, and should, that DeSantis voted to raise the Social Security retirement age to 70 and to lower cost of living adjustments.

DeSantis, and perhaps former New Jersey governor Chris Christie — who is getting into the race soon — probably hope that Trump will be indicted by special prosecutor Jack Smith for the supposed crimes of doing what Biden did — taking the archives home — and of inciting the Jan. 6 demonstrations.

But everybody knows that Trump told everyone on that day to go home peacefully.

Actually, everybody knows that  Trump didn't say that until hours after the riot started, and that he called thte insurrectionists "very special" and repeated falsehoods about the election being stolen from him.
