Losing Utah Republican Mia Love Realizes that she was just a tool for the Republican party.

Days after losing her re-election bid in deep red Utah, Representative Mia Love, the only black Republican woman in Congress, condemned President Trump on Monday in a scathing concession speech, describing him as having “no real relationships, just convenient transactions.”

1. It took her THIS long to realize that...?

It seems to me that the “genius” of Trump is that he manages to get people to con themselves into ignoring his long track record of using and discarding people he works with and falling for his “game,” over and over again.

2. She lost because voters knew

she wasn't smart enough to know this before she was beaten

Just joking.

4. "Despite the fallout with Trump, Love said she remains committed to being a Republican..."

Despite the fallout with Trump, Love said she remains committed to being a Republican — “I know conservative policies work,” she said — and did not rule out a comeback bid for Congress in 2020.

7. She said it loud and clear at her press conference. She's definitely ALL IN. Also, she hasn't given

up on running for her seat again in two years.

Can you give us just one example, Mia? We’ll wait!

5. when one loses by just a few hundred votes, one can find lots of things that

could have been done different in the campaign to make up those votes.

6. How can she be a Republican and not know that with the GOP, EVERYTHING

is a transaction?

Play-to-play, grease the wheels, the one with the gold makes the rules, etc.

If you don't complete the transaction, you don't get anywhere in the Republican Party.

Sorry you had to find out the hard way, Ms. Love...

8. She is married to privilege. She doesn't really know better. She's above it.

12. Your answer is spot on.

 

She had no clue that she was just a tool for Temple Square. Blissfully Ignorant.

9. She's an actress

 

She'll reinvent herself and start appearing on CNN and MSNBC. You can set your watch to it, and sadly the media will buy her grift.
