It seemed like a good idea: A cordial chat with a local GOP chairman and ardent Donald Trump supporter about common ground, the future of America, and his hopes and concerns about America’s 46th president Joe Biden.
No such luck. In the latest episode of Political Party with Adam Smith, Hillsborough County Republican Chairman Jim Waurishuk insists that the presidential election was stolen, despite court ruling after court ruling dismissing such baseless claims and state recounts that confirmed Biden won those states.
Waurishuk does not even acknowledge that supporters of Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol. He does not believe the thousands of hours of videos showing Trump supporters inside the Capitol, National Republican leaders and law enforcement officials confirming Trump supporters broke into the Capitol.
Instead, he claims it was mainly Antifa – federal law enforcement officials dismiss that claim too – responsible for the seige, and that there is a giant conspiracy involving law enforcement, judges, elected Republican leaders, and the media, to blame Trump.
