This week’s Political Party with Adam Smith features one of Tampa Bay’s most prominent supporters of Donald Trump: Cliff Gephart, organizer of a massive MAGA boat parade in Pinellas County and owner of Largo’s Conservative Grounds Coffee shop that bills itself as a place “where rational, conservative, moral, God loving people congregate without the scourge of liberalism.”
We wanted to take take Gephart’s pulse about the future of the Make America Great Again movement and the president’s unsubstantiated claims of widespread electoral fraud.
“I don’t think America is going to crumble into some deep, dark place. I do feel like there have been some things that have been a little odd with the election, some things that the mainstream media will not talk about,” said Gephart, who expects Trump will remain a huge force in politics even out of office.
“I think he’s going to be the leader of the party until somebody else has greater influence, and I don’t see that happening.”
