Hogan ‘Embarrassed’ More Republicans Are Not Speaking up About Trump’s Refusal to Concede

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) is speaking out against Republicans who have been silent on President Donald Trump’s refusal to concede the election.

CNN’s Jake Tapper noted Trump has “done everything he can to subvert the process” and overturn the results of the election. He asked Hogan if he still believes the president will eventually “do the right thing” and concede.

“Well I have confidence on Jan. 20 the president-elect is going to be sworn in. But I’m not sure, you know, I could say that I’m confident that the president’s going to do the right thing,” Hogan said.

He argued Trump’s pressure on legislatures to change election results was “completely outrageous.”

“We used to go supervise elections around the world and we were the most respected country with respect to elections and now we’re beginning to look like we’re a banana republic. It’s time for them to stop the nonsense. It just gets more bizarre every single day and frankly, I’m embarrassed that more people in the party aren’t speaking up.”

Watch his remarks below:

Trump’s chances of remaining in the White House are dwindling.

He would need to change the results in at least three large states.

He has failed to change the outcomes in states including Georgia, Michigan, and Arizona, as IJR previously reported.

Trump’s legal team continues to take action based on unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud.

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said, “And what’s happened here is quite frankly, the conduct of the president’s legal team has been a national embarrassment.”

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) slammed Trump for refusing to accept his loss, as IJR previously reported.

“Having failed to make even a plausible case of widespread fraud or conspiracy before any court of law, the President has now resorted to overt pressure on state and local officials to subvert the will of the people and overturn the election,” Romney said.

He added, “It is difficult to imagine a worse, more undemocratic action by a sitting American president.”

  1. Choo Choo Cherl should never be taken seriously as an adult. Ignore her like you would ignore a three year old having a tantrum in the grocery store for not getting her candy. Her definition of a RINO is anyone who has a mind of their own (as Choo Choo doesn’t have btw) and calls Tythoid Trump out on his illegal and unethical practices.

    Sorry you’re on the wrong story. This one is about the Rhino Hogan of MD.
    Evidently you don’t understand low unemployment, great stock market numbers and peace in countries that haven’t seen it in years. Oh yes, and a vaccine much sooner than expected. Get your GED before you post again and stay away from CNN.
    And what will he be going to prison for exactly? Biden and Hunter yes. Once Harris and squad take over perhaps the Bidens will be prosecuted.

  3. Actually Republicans are embarrassed by him. Hogan may call himself a Republican but he is a RINO. The COVID tests he got from S. Korea in secret were flawed and he had to replace them so he wasted a whole lot of the state’s money. At least no one is dead in this state because of an executive order………that is known.

  4. Yet he brought the economy through intact…got a vaccine a year before anyone thought possible..while watching Democratic cities implode. Where are the trouble spots??? Dem areas…. ok r Texas border towns..shocked.

    Blue wave??? Blue trickle.

  5. Cherl, Trump has done nothing but ruin this country. He’s not beholden to the citizens of this country, he lied about Covid, he has done NOTHING but golf since he LOST the election. I can’t wait until they slap handcuffs on him and he goes to prison when they LOCK HIM UP!

  6. I think that there have been enough voting inconsistencies and unusual occurrences which may have already subverted the process. It’s necessary to play it out to insure the validity of a fair election!

  7. “You mean not a politician who owes anyone anything. He is beholding to NO ONE but the citizens of this country.” Sharal

    You might want to rethink what you say in public, Sharal. You might get away with saying untrue things like that IN YOUR circle of robotic friends, but you won’t get away with that here.

    King Donald The Loser is in serious financial straights. Watch what happens when he is evicted from his public housing, in January.

  8. “[The Founding Fathers’] greatest fears of losing the Republic have all materialized under Trump criminality.” Floyd

    It may have culminated in King Donald The Loser, but the old Republican Party and now the American Fascist Party have been working up to this condition since the 1960s, at least.

  9. “I think the Democrats should be embarrassed by their actions for the last four years.” Ron

    Which actions by the Democratic Party, precisely, have been “embarrassing”? I am really curious about your answer to that question.

    “We need to wait for the election to be certified. Give it time, the truth will come out.” Ron

    I am confused, Ron.

    In what way will waiting for official results change what we already know to be true? The president’s campaign has tried, and tried, and tried to do a coup through the courts and they are so incompetent that they can’t even get Federalist chosen judges to go along with them, for crying out loud, so what are YOU waiting for? A miracle? Pathetic.

  10. Poor Floyd. He’s a mimic. “A person like this”? You mean not a politician who owes anyone anything. He is beholding to NO ONE but the citizens of this country. Low unemployment, high stock market numbers, peace to countries that have been at war for years. Is that what you have a problem with like some many haters?
    Stop being like Floyd. He’s a mimic.

  11. It already has. Trump lost. It’s that simple. And anyone who believes Trump lies and attempts to subvert the will of the people, as well as make us a laughing stock to the world, should re-examine their thinking process and stop supporting a want to be tyrant. Our Constitution never believed a person like this could rise to power. Their greatest fears of losing the Republic have all materialized under Trump criminality.

  12. I think the Democrats should be embarrassed by their actions for the last four years. We need to wait for the election to be certified. Give it time, the truth will come out.
