as Gov. Baker, Lt. Gov. Polito, Party Chair
Kirsten Hughes and Others IGNORE TRUMP
by Lonnie Brennan
HYANNIS – Long-time WXTK Cape Cod Talk Show Host Ed Lambert ripped into MassGOP Chairwoman Kirsten Hughes for her lame “grand opening” of the Republican “Victory” office in Hyannis in late August.
“The Republican Party is lacking leadership from the top,” Lambert said. “No signs for [Donald] Trump. No bumper stickers. Nothing,” he explained, relating how RINO [Charlie] Baker has stated that he will not support the Republican nominee, and has urged others to not vote for Trump – essentially aiding a Democrat Hillary Clinton win.
What’s worse is that Party Chair Hughes and Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito joined in the grand opening, ignoring the top-ticket Trump, and then Republican candidate after candidate who spoke at the event similarly ignored any mention of the Republican top-ticket winner. Indeed, Lambert noted that only one candidate mentioned that she would support the top-ticket nominee at the event. One Trump sign was present at the event, but neither Trump signs nor materials were available for any attendees to take home.
“I had to get stickers from Holly Robichaud [political consultant and Trump SuperPAC Massachusetts leader – www.makeMAgreat.com],” Lambert said, adding “they, the MassGOP, didn’t have anything.”
He devoted a portion of his extremely popular morning show to the topic, as he called for the resignation of Hughes. Several days later, obviously shamed into it, the MassGOP relented and made some Trump campaign materials available at its office.
In contrast to the Republican top leaders, the state’s Democrat Party has manned their Hyannis Main Street storefront for months, and has plastered its windows with signs for all Democrat candidates, and made available resources, signs, bumper stickers and campaign literature for all candidates, especially the presidential nominee.” ♦
