Georgia Republicans are facing a dilemma at a historic turning point in their state’s politics, having to choose between loyalty to their party and loyalty to their party’s national leader — President Trump, who will be out of office next month. On Saturday, Trump headlined a rally in Valdosta for the two GOP senators seeking to retain their seats. He encouraged Georgians to vote for them but spent most of his 90-minute speech on baseless claims of misconduct by Georgia election officials, blaming them for his own loss in the state. Many rally attendees told Yahoo News that they fully expected Trump to be sworn in for a second time in January. “I don’t believe that Biden won [the election],” Miles Cook, 53, said. “I think it’s been cheated and I think Trump will become the next president.”

Eva Longoria apologized Sunday for comments she made earlier in the day about Black female voters.“I’m so sorry and sad to hear that my comments on MSNBC could be perceived as taking credit from Black women.

Latinas (many who identify as Afro-Latina), indigenous women, AAPI women and other women of color are standing with them so we can grow our collective voice and power. Together, we are unstoppable! Nothing but love and support for Black women everywhere! You deserve a standing ovation!!!!”She retweeted a message of support from Black actress Kerry Washington, who said, “I know Eva like a sister. We have been in many trenches together. She is a fighter for all women. Read below. This is what she meant. This is how she truly feels.”Earlier in the day, Longoria appeared on MSNBC, where she told Ari Melber that “women of color showed up in big ways. Of course, you saw in Georgia what Black women have done, but Latina women were the real heroines here, beating men in turnout in every state and voting for Biden-Harris at an average rate of three to one.”On Saturday, the major outlets and networks called the election in Joe Biden’s favor, making him president-elect.Read original story Eva Longoria ‘So Sorry’ for Diss of Black Women Voters At TheWrap
