(Patriot Insider) – Democrats aren’t the only ones who are completely out of touch with Americans. RINOs like Rep. Liz Cheney (WY) and Rep. Adam Kinzinger (IL) have been making a name for themselves as traitors to the GOP but they are far from the only ones.
Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson proved on Sunday that he, too, is a RINO.
During an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” Hutchinson said that Trump is “morally responsible” for the Jan. 6 Capitol incident when asked about the sham hearing that took place last week by the House Select Committee to Investigate the Jan. 6 “Attack.”
Hutchinson, who has said he is considering a run for the presidency in 2024, called the panel hand-picked by Nancy Pelosi “not the most bipartisan effort” and said Americans “want to hold the people who are responsible for the Jan. 6 attack accountable.”
In reality, Americans are tired of hearing about Jan. 6 and most of us just want to move on.
“Now, the whole premise of the hearing is that President Trump is criminally responsible, and that’s the case that they’re trying to make,” Hutchinson said. “As Bill Barr has said, I think that is a heavy lift. I don’t see the factual basis for that.”
Well he was off to a good start but we should have been skeptical the moment he cited Bill Barr. Of course, Hutchinson went on to say that Trump may not be criminally responsible but he’s not blameless.
“You can make the case, and I would agree, that he is politically and morally responsible, but much of what has happened. But in terms of criminal liability, I think the committee has a long way to go before they could establish that,” he said.
Given that Trump is wildly popular among Republicans, and Americans in general, it wasn’t too surprising that his comments resulted in some heavy backlash.
Hutchinson certainly didn’t do his presidency aspirations any favors by throwing Trump under the bus like that.

"The Republican Party has to move past former Trump," said Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson." Is RINO Hutchinson so delusional to think he can win a primary against Trump? 45 has a 97% approval rating in the GOP, but old Asa thinks it's time to "move on" from MAGA.

Hutchinson went on to make things worse for himself, saying that the future is what matters and that the future needs to move away from Trump.
“I think the key thing politically is that the American public does not want us to focus on the past. It’s an important review, but I think the Democrats make a mistake if they simply want to relitigate what they did in the impeachment,” he said.
Hutchinson then asserted that the future of the Republican Party, as well as the country, should be different from its past.
“Well, I hope that the future of the Republican Party is different than former President Trump’s leadership. I hope we move in a different direction. I believe that what happened on Jan. 6 is a lot at his feet. It was wrong for our country and for him to continue to push that theory I agree is the wrong direction for the Republican Party,” he said.
“I think there’s many Republicans that are looking for an off-ramp, new opportunities to find leadership in the future,” he said.
Trump “got off track in Jan. 6 and that was a costly error for our democracy,” Hutchinson said. The “costly error for our democracy” was the stolen 2020 election and any Republican who denies this has absolutely no chance in hell at becoming the next president.
“And I agree with a lot of the comments. He is — he has a responsibility there. We need to make sure that’s clear,” he said.
Hutchinson said Republicans “need to do a lot of soul-searching as to what is the right thing here, what is the right thing to say for our party and our democracy and our future, and not simply appeal to the basest instincts of some of our base.”
The “basest instincts of some of our base?” Does he mean like the people who aren’t burying our heads in the sand and can see how corrupt and rigged the 2020 presidential election truly was?
Apparently believing that stolen elections are wrong is one of the GOP bases’ “basest instincts” and we need to move away from that.
Hutchinson is a RINO and no friend of the MAGA movement. America and the world were in great shape under President Trump and anyone who thinks we need to move in a different direction is just as bad as the radical leftists who openly want to destroy this country.
