Two GOP lawmakers have railed against former President Trump for his recent remarks at an Ohio rally Saturday. Both Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) reacted to the rally on CNN Sunday.
Romney said the rally reminded him of the World Wrestling Federation. “This is like WWF, that it’s entertaining, but it’s not real,” the Utah Republican senator said.
Romney said Trump’s allegations about election fraud haven’t come from any reputable sources. “Did [Trump] hear it from the intelligence community? No,” Romney said. “So where did he hear it from? The MyPillow guy? Rudy Giuliani?”
On the other hand, Kinzinger called the Saturday festivities “a rally of a loser president.”
“I mean, he’s the first president to lose re-election in decades,” Kinzinger said. “And I don’t know why these folks would go there and in essence ogle at and in many cases just short of worship a loser, but they did.”
However, when it comes to the election fraud allegations, the Illinois Republican representative thought the talking points are working on American voters. “And then he went into old recycled talking points. Look, but the problem is, again, people believe this. They really do,” Kinzinger said. “And there’s enough people, frighteningly, that believe he’ll be president in August.”

Michigan asks residents to house migrants, enroll children in school and help adults find employment
Michigan is asking its residents to help with the mess its leadership created and house migrants in their own homes. The state Department of Labor and Economic Development said volunteers who participate must commit for at least 90 days as part of the refugee support program.
In addition to opening up their homes, sponsors are expected to support newly arrived refugees by greeting them at the airport, securing and preparing initial housing, enrolling children in school and helping adults find employment.
“Programs like the Welcome Corps advance the Office of Global Michigan’s mission to make Michigan the home for opportunity for our immigrant, refugee and ethnic communities,” said Poppy Hernandez, Global Michigan Director and Michigan’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer. “Expanded refugee resettlement pathways empower more Michiganders to support our state’s growing refugee population and build a more welcoming and inclusive Michigan for all.”
The migrants will come from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela, all points of origin where many have been hoping to apply for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Fox News reports “cities like New York and Chicago have also dealt with issues related to migrants committing crimes, as well as pushback from residents who have voiced anger and concern over the influx. Migrant shelters in those cities have largely been full, forcing officials to come up with ways to safely house the migrants.”
Last year, Massachusetts officials asked residents to open their doors as migrant shelters were full at the time. “Most importantly, if you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family,” said Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll.
