Former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy knows a thing or two about battling the left.
Gowdy helped uncover the unsecured private email server Hillary Clinton used.
Now Trey Gowdy revealed the one fight Republicans can never win.
Gowdy ripped The New York Times’s liberal bias in a monologue on his Sunday night Fox News program.
In his remarks, Gowdy told viewers that the last time the Times endorsed a Republican for president was Dwight D. Eisenhower.
“Do you know last Republican presidential candidate that [The New York Times] endorsed? I want you to think hard because it was a long time ago, like half a century ago. Dwight David Eisenhower was the last Republican candidate for president the New York Times deemed worthy of your vote. Not Ronald Reagan, not even the three presidents who actually won New York,” Gowdy stated.
Gowdy added that the Times has a history of building up RINOs – like John McCain and Mitt Romney – and praising them for when they vote with Democrats.
But as soon as the likes of Romney and McCain win the GOP presidential nomination and present a threat to Democrats the Times turns on the smear campaign.
“Nope. General Eisenhower is the last Republican worthy of your vote. The New York Times liked Senator McCain but not presidential candidate McCain. They liked Senator Romney but not Presidential candidate Romney. Not a single Republican candidate for president in my lifetime has been deemed worthy of your vote. And the Times wonders where this belief in media bias comes from,” Gowdy added.
Gowdy explained that Ronald Reagan won 49 states and 525 Electoral College votes in 1984 – which essentially showed national unity in support of Reagan’s presidency – but the Times still endorsed Reagan’s Democrat opponent former Vice President Walter Mondale.
“Reagan won the popular vote by nearly 20 percentage points – if you like unity and the country coming together, you should have loved 1984. I don’t think we’ll see a presidential candidate unify the country like Reagan did in 1984, and even then it was the Times and Minnesota on the other side,” Gowdy stated.
Gowdy finished up by noting that it was the Times – the supposed defenders of democracy – who were the ones siding with a fringe minority in the 1984 race and added that it wasn’t even worth worrying over since the Times is just going to endorse every single Democrat candidate.
“We hear phrase ‘anti-democratic’ a lot from the writers at New York Times. Some might argue when you are on the other side of 525 electoral votes, you might be anti-democratic. So I’ll save you the mystery, The Times will endorse the Democrat candidate for president from now until the end of time, and we will continue not to care,” Gowdy concluded.
