  Trump — who once endorsed DeSantis as his 'great friend' — slams the 'ungrateful' Florida governor, saying 'I made him,' report says Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis, once allies, haven't spoken to each other in months as a potential 2024 presidential campaign rivalry brews.Just a small crowd of supporters had gathered as of 2 p.m. Several people who said they were part of Club 45 — an independent Trump-supporting organization — said more people would assemble from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m., after people were done working for the day. Traffic was becoming more backed up by 3 p.m. By 5 p.m., about 60 people had gathered on the bridge.

Former President Donald Trump praised Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, for “having the courage of her convictions” when she told the Jan. 6 committee on Thursday that she still believes the 2020 presidential election was stolen.

“Congratulations to Ginni Thomas for having the courage of her convictions. Most importantly, she is right,” began Trump in a widely released statement on Friday.

“The Election was Rigged and Stolen, and everyone knows it—especially the Radical Left Democrats who are destroying our Country. Cheating on Elections is the only thing they do really well, and that’s because Weak Republicans and RINOs allow them to get away with it. Fortunately, Ginni Thomas is not one of them and, by the way, her husband is Great!” the former president concluded.

GOP leaders still strive to appease Trump's base on election denialism

  GOP leaders still strive to appease Trump's base on election denialism As Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis stumps for some of this year's midterm candidates ahead of what looks increasingly like a showdown with former President Donald Trump in 2024, he's seemed to be more nimble than most on the Trump tightrope. He’s offered a wink and a nod to the election fraud claims that animate the former President’s loyalists while concentrating on base-pleasing stunts like flying migrants to Martha’s Vineyard.

Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MI), the Democrat chairing of the House Jan. 6 Committee, told reporters after the near five-hour interview that Thomas doubled down on her debunked allegations that the election was stolen. Thomas was asked directly if Thomas continues to deny the election results, to which he replied, “Yes.”

Thomas is under scrutiny for her role in trying to influence state lawmakers in several states to throw out the election results and replace Biden electors with Trump electors – effectively overthrowing the democratic process.

She is also under fire for text messages she sent to then-Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows parroting wild QAnon-style conspiracy theories surrounding the election. Additionally, Thomas briefly attended the ‘Stop the Steal’ rally on Jan. 6th, which preceded the attack on the U.S. Capitol.

  NotedDC — Hurricane Ian brings DeSantis, Biden together President Biden and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) are putting aside their rocky relationship to aid the millions of people affected by Hurricane Ian’s devastation after it made landfall as a Category 4 storm on Wednesday afternoon. Images of flattened buildings, flooded homes and drivers caught in head-tall waters in the wake of the storm have dominated media attention…Images of flattened buildings, flooded homes and drivers caught in head-tall waters in the wake of the storm have dominated media attention the past two days, with the president painting a bleak outlook of the storm’s toll after being briefed on Thursday.

Thomas was a close ally of Trump while he was in office and would often meet with the president to discuss hiring and firing in his administration. “Years before she became one of then-President Donald Trump’s most prominent coup supporters, Ginni Thomas was already notorious in his West Wing for, among other things, ruining staffers’ afternoons by working Trump into fits of vengeful rage,” reported the Washington Post in April.

“We all knew that within minutes after Ginni left her meeting with the president, he would start yelling about firing people for being disloyal,” a former senior Trump administration official is quoted as saying. “When Ginni Thomas showed up, you knew your day was wrecked.”
