Liberal Media Praises DeWine As ‘Last Establishment Republican’
The anti-Trump Atlantic applauds DeWine for not "fully embracing" Trump, acting 'faster than Cuomo' with COVID lockdowns.
In the latest sign that the liberal media is in love with Governor Mike DeWine, the Atlantic - which ran a fake news, slanderous hit piece on President Trump in 2020 - published a piece over the weekend singing praises about DeWine as the "last of the establishment Republicans" who, they lament, "should be a GOP darling."
The liberals at the Atlantic don't get it. Republican primary voters do. DeWine even went so far as to tell the Atlantic "I'm not going to go there" in response to a question about whether President Trump is a "positive presence in American life," which tells Ohio Republicans everything they already know.
Check out some excerpts from the Atlantic below.
"DeWine would close schools, bars, restaurants, and other businesses, and, in a move that continues to draw condemnation from conservatives, postpone the March 17 presidential primary. The first-term Republican quickly became the nation’s most aggressive governor in confronting the pandemic. He acted faster in some respects than Democrats Gavin Newsom in California and Andrew Cuomo in New York...DeWine 'did the right thing,' President Joe Biden, a former Senate colleague of his, said last year.
DeWine first impressed Democrats just eight months into his term, in the aftermath of a mass shooting....the governor had responded with proposals to tighten background checks and make it easier for courts to confiscate firearms from citizens deemed a threat to themselves or others. 'Some chanted, ‘Do something,’ and they were absolutely right,' DeWine said at a press conference. 'We must do something, and that is exactly what we are going to do.'"
"Should the party nominate Trump again in 2024? 'I really think we have to resist talking about 2024 until we get 2022 done,' he said. I tried a different tack, asking the governor whether Trump was a positive presence in American public life at the moment. 'You’re good,' he replied, 'but I’m not going to go there.'"
