Alabama’s U.S. Senate race, now into extended overtime for a delay due to the coronavirus pandemic, has garnered a lot of national attention, including from President Donald Trump, who endorsed former Auburn head football coach Tommy Tuberville.
On July 14, Republican voters in Alabama will head to the polls to choose between Tuberville and former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who served as Alabama’s U.S. Senator for decades. The winner of that contest will face incumbent U.S. Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) on November 3.
Among those also watching from afar is conservative commentator Michelle Malkin, author of “Open Borders Inc.: Who’s Funding America’s Destruction?,” who is a champion of Sessions’ candidacy. During an appearance on Huntsville WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show,” Malkin explained why she favors Sessions over Tuberville.
“When you look at all those in totality, and you especially look at the service Jeff Sessions has provided to this country for so long as an unparalleled expert among elected officials on the wages of mass migration on the country for the last 30 years, he is irreplaceable. Tommy Tuberville is all over the map, and in the end, he seems to me to be one of these pro-globalist, anti-American worker, Open Borders, Inc. tools who have an inch-deep understanding of mass migration.”
“We need somebody who is ready for prime time,” Malkin continued. “I’m saying, as somebody who is obviously outside of Alabama — but we need as many as possible stalwart America First elected officials, who are not beholden to special interests of any kind. And the way that Jeff Sessions has comported his entire career is one of stellar integrity — somebody who is not going to be corrupted. And that’s the problem with so much of the establishment Republican Party.”
When asked about the Trump endorsement and why GOP voters should look beyond Trump’s endorsement, Malkin said in this case, Trump seemed to be a victim of the “swamp” environment, noting that Trump had made mistakes in the past. She cited Trump’s endorsement of now U.S. Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) as one of those mistakes.”
“Here’s how I want people to think about this: President Trump has many forces that he has to combat in the Beltway swamp,” she explained. “He went there, and so many people, including myself, voted for him because he promised to drain that swamp. But it’s impossible to operate in that environment without allowing some of these swamp alligators into your jurisdiction, and that’s what happened. I think people really need to read up and do their homework, and they can do that in part by reading books like mine, like ‘Open Borders, Inc.,’ to understand that you need to follow the money to find the truth about these pretenders, many who have ensconced themselves into top echelons of the White House. They’re not really for America First. And there has to be a separating of the weak and the chaffed — between people who truly believe in this agenda, who have fought for it, who have sacrificed for it. And all of the latecomers and vultures and opportunists who have surrounded the Trump administration. And you know, they’re trying their hardest — you know the folks who have been embedded in these battles for the past couple of decades, who are in key positions in the White House. But it is as much an internal battle as an external battle.”
“The Trump endorsement is a huge mistake,” she continued. “And he’s made these mistakes before because he’s listened to the wrong people whispering in his ear. Remember — Donald Trump had also endorsed Mitt Romney. That turned out to be a disaster, and we don’t want this disaster to be repeated. I don’t want Donald Trump to have to apologize, walk back or feel sorry about the endorsement he made of somebody who was allowed to waltz into the Senate. Alabama voters actually have an opportunity to help correct Trump’s mistake.”
