New York Times Journo Compares GOP Backers in ‘Trump Uniform’ to Saddam Loyalists

On Saturday’s Chris Wallace Show, the CNN host couldn’t help making fun of Republicans turning up at the Trump trial all wearing navy blazers, white shirts, and red ties. On screen, the mocking caption was “WHO WORE THE TRUMP UNIFORM BEST?” But New York Times reporter and podcaster Lulu Garcia-Navarro took it to another level comparing the Republicans to bootlickers of Iraqi madman Saddam Hussein. 

CHRIS WALLACE: Lulu, who were the Trump uniform best?

LULU GARCIA-NAVARRO: I mean, Vivek Ramaswamy said a true thing here, which is this is not the United States of America. Since when is it in the United States of America that people have to wear the Trump uniform in order to show fealty and loyalty? This reminds me of Saddam Hussein and the good old days when you had the big mustache, when they were sitting around the table.

REIHAN SALAM, NATIONAL REVIEW: That’s a little strong.

GARCIA-NAVARRO: Oh, come on. Come on. Let me — it was a joke. It was a joke. But to be clear, the idea that you are having to dress up as this man in order to show how close you are to him, how you care for him, it’s embarrassing.

GOP strategist Kristen Soltis Anderson made the point that this isn’t far off from the normal Republican “uniform.” Saddam dressed in military garb, which would give off a different vibe. The colloquy continued:

WALLACE: Reihan, let me ask you this, to take Lulu’s point. Is it a little demeaning that you have all these people rushing not only to go out and attack the witnesses and support Trump, but to feel they need to dress up like him?

SALAM: I think that Donald Trump is a very unique, idiosyncratic figure. He really, really likes folks who are going out on a limb, traveling — Doug Burgum has a real job. He’s the governor of North Dakota. But here he is in New York City backing up the president.

This clearly looks coordinated as a team effort, much like say, the Houston Astros all wearing orange ties to the White House. When all the leftist women team-dress in white as a pro-abortion sentiment, the media laud it.

As for Garcia-Navarro trashing Republicans as Saddam-ites of a sort, she sounded much more like a devotee of a dictator in 2016 when she was a reporter at National Public Radio. The occasion was the death of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro’s brother Ramon, and Lourdes/Lulu described meeting him in 2004.

“I walk into this lush, beautiful villa, and I am introduced to Ramon Castro,” Garcia-Navarro said on air. “And it’s kind of jarring because even though he was Fidel’s older brother, he looks a lot like him. As he’s presented to me, he leans over and gives me a kiss on one cheek and says, this is from Raul, kisses me on the other cheek and says, this is from me, and then he kisses me on the forehead and says, this is from Fidel.”

Then came the jaw-dropper: “It was kind of like getting the blessing of the Holy Trinity.”

Fidel Castro is comparable to God, but the Trump-backing Republicans are painted as the autocrat-worshippers…
