‘The total idolatry that I’m seeing from some of the supporters … is really troubling’
By Joe Kovacs
Jenna Ellis, one of Donald Trump’s former election lawyers, is now saying publicly she will not support the former president, calling him a “malignant narcissist” who can’t admit mistakes.
“I simply can’t support him for elected office again,” Ellis said Thursday on her American Family Radio broadcast.
“Why I have chosen to distance is because of that frankly malignant narcissistic tendency to simply say that he’s never done anything wrong.”
Ellis herself, like Trump, faces criminal charges concerning attempted election subversion in the 2020 presidential race.
She was discussing the former commander in chief with fellow host Steve Deace, who noted: “Before that man [Trump] needs to be president again … [to] escape the quote-unquote, ‘witch-hunts’, that man needs Jesus again because … his ambitions would be fueled by showing some self-awareness. And he won’t do it because he can’t admit, ‘I’m not God.'”
Ellis explained how Deace had “perfectly articulated exactly how I as a voter feel,” indicating she knew Trump well “as a friend, as a former boss.”
“I have great love and respect for him personally. But everything that you just said resonates with me as exactly why I simply can’t support him for elected office again.
