'That's Obviously the Play Here': Matt Walsh Has an Interesting Theory on Why Trump Might Get Arrested
The possibility of the Manhattan Criminal Court indicting former President Donald Trump on charges related to hush money payments to Stormy Daniels has led to a variety of theories around the inevitable political fallout to come.
Though the charges reportedly to be brought against Trump initially don't appear to be anything that would land him in jail for even a day, the possibility of handcuffs and a perp walk for the former president has Democrats salivating and conservatives, even Trump critics, aghast that partisan politics have descended so low. This is the stuff of banana republics and Third World dictatorships, not what was not so long ago the beacon of the free world.
Enter the Daily Wire's Matt Walsh, who suggested Saturday that the motivation could be to make just enough of a martyr out of Trump to ensure he wins the GOP nomination - even against a potential strong challenger like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis - but ultimately runs out of steam and loses the general election.
"They want Trump to be the Republican nominee," Walsh wrote Saturday morning. "That’s obviously the play here. There is no other conceivable reason to arrest and perp walk him on a bullshit misdemeanor charge. I might be overestimating the tactical intelligence of the idiot power-hungry hacks behind this. But if there is any political strategy then that has to be it."
Finally, I'll leave you with BlazeTV host Steve Deace raising another potential motivation that Trump's most earnest supporters should certainly watch out for - a replay of January 6th.
