In 2018, America was able to see a renewed sense of political salesmanship get a second wind, as Republican RINO’s (Republican in Name Only), like Mitt Romney (R-UT) who had spent two years slamming and demeaning President Trump and his fulfillment of his promises to the American people, only to then turn around, just before the 2018 election and act as if they were the foundation of the President and his ‘America First’ policies! It was a re-assertion of the typical fake political salesmanship that the voters had become sickened by until President Trump came along and proved to be a man of his word!
Now, fast forward to 2019, as politicians begin the political fight of their lives, in the runup to the 2020 Presidential election! In fact, New York’s Nicole Malliotakis, who had been an ardent opponent of President Trump, as well as his policies, ever since he ran for the Presidency in 2016! Now, as she begins her campaign for a Congressional seat, she is claiming to be just the opposite, a strong supporter of President Trump and his ‘America First’ policies!
The Gateway Pundit reported…
New York Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, who is running against popular pro-Trump YouTuber Joey Saladino for a congressional seat in Staten Island, previously said that she regretted voting for President Donald Trump.
The candidate is now pandering to Trump voters in order to win the Republican primary against Saladino, despite her opposition to ending DACA, the border wall and his proposed travel ban.
In 2017, while she was running for mayor against Bill de Blasio, Malliotakis said that she had voted for Trump because he was the nominee, but wished she had wrote in Marco Rubio instead.
“I’d write in Marco Rubio…I’d write in Marco Rubio so that I could tell you I voted Marco Rubio,” Malliotakis told the Daily News about what she would do if she had a chance to change her vote.
Malliotakis noted that she disliked President Trump because of…
“his proposed ban on transgender service members, his plans to suspend DACA, his promise to build a border wall and his travel ban.”
In other words, she thinks more like a Democrat, as she supports their agenda, as well as, she tells the voters what she thinks they want to hear, until after they elect her, and then she does the opposite of what she promised her constituents! Sounds like a true politician!
The Gateway Pundit continued…
NeverTrumper Milliotakis also discussed her voter’s remorse on camera with Spectrum News NY1.
Now that she needs the support of the pro-Trump Republican base, she has drastically changed her tune — often praising the president in public comments. She seems to be hoping that Republican primary voters forget her radically anti-Trump positions.
Milliotakis might be in trouble, because her primary opponent, YouTube star Joseph Saladino (better known as “Joey Salads”) has an unbroken track record of supporting the Trumpist agenda.
The Staten Island native lists slowing economic opportunity for the area’s youth, ever increasing taxes, and the growing opioid addiction crisis as some of the top issues he will be addressing with his campaign. He is well-known for his comedic videos running pranks on unsuspecting strangers — they are generally not overtly political in nature.
He supports ending DACA, building a wall and does not regret voting for the president — telling TGP that he’s been “MAGA since birth.”
“DACA has directly lead to a massive increase in children being smuggled across the border,” Saladino told the Gateway Pundit.
Saladino has nearly 2.5 million followers on YouTube and Facebook, as well as 82,000 on Twitter. According to a statement from his campaign, his work gets over one billion views on social media per year.
Saladino recently made headlines for filing a lawsuit against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for blocking him on Twitter. His lawsuit came in response a decision from the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals that President Donald Trump cannot block people on social media because it is a public forum.
Ocasio-Cortez blocked Saladino in May, shortly after he announced his candidacy, according to a press release from his campaign.
“I’m suing AOC because we need to be able to have a strong and vigorous debate between the parties, otherwise our fragile system of ideas and representation breaks down,” Saladino said. “Though she is not in a position of power, she is the voice of her generation of Democrat voters, and bigger than some of the Presidential candidates.”
Saladino posted a video of himself filing the lawsuit on his YouTube channel.
“If we can’t talk to one another, the whole system breaks down.” Saladino continued. “Look what is happening in my district when entrenched NeverTrumpers are confronted by America First ideas. Like it or not we live in the same city and we need to be professional.”
Ultimately, Americans are sick and tired of fake politicians who knowingly lie to the American people, knowing that they are going to do everything in their power to do quite the opposite of what they are promising! In the end, Nicole Malliotakis may truly be a no-nonsense leader, but she certainly is a non-factual politician, as she says what she thinks her voters want to hear, only to do the opposite of what they want! Therefore, she would fit in nicely, with the radical left-wing Democrat Party, as they always do what they themselves want, as well meet the needs of the Party, rather than that of what their constituents need, or the nation as a whole!
