A popular radio host from Boston who is syndicated said over the weekend that he thinks former President Donald Trump will get the GOP vote for president in 2024 “at this point.”
In an interview with Breitbart News’s Washington Bureau Chief Matthew Boyle on SiriusXM, Howie Carr was asked about Trump’s chances of getting the nomination despite his four indictments. The most recent one happened last week in Fulton County, Ga., and resulted in an epic mugshot that went viral and gave the former president new support in the black community.
“The Howie Carr Show” host on WRKO said, “I don’t think it’s possible to stop Trump at this point. I mean, with as many people in the game as there are, it’s just going to get split up.”
He also said that he thinks businessman Vivek Ramaswamy is “doing pretty well” in the primary and that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has “somewhat of a path,” but he doesn’t “see any way to stop Trump unless something unexpected happens at this point.”
Carr then turned the story around and asked Boyle what he thought about it. The SiriusXM host replied that he thinks Trump is “on a glide path to the nomination” and compared the current political climate to that of 2016. For example, Boyle said that people he has talked to are most worried about immigrants, just like they were during the 2016 campaign.
Carr said that the issue is becoming more of a problem in places like Massachusetts that are “far from the border,” but he added that it is “back under the radar” and isn’t being talked about much in the national media.
“These illegal immigrants are being brought into the country in states that are a long way from the border. It’s not just New York State, even though that’s where, you know, there’s still a lot of attention. For example, this week, the state of Massachusetts took over a hotel in Yarmouth, Cape Cod, which is a working-class, but also upper-class, area,” Carr said.
“They basically kicked out all the renters who were from the United States. They went from charging $300 a week for rent to charging $700 a week. No one who lived there could pay for it. Even an 89-year-old woman is out on the street, and now they’ve brought in illegal immigrants for $700 a week. They are now in charge of the whole hotel. He said, “The Americans have been kicked out.”
Also, Breitbart News said:
Carr said that the same thing happened in another Cape Cod town called Dennis, where “some U.S. citizens who were veterans were kicked out of their hotels to make room for illegal aliens.” Carr says that blue-collar towns like Taunton, which is about 50 miles south of Boston, and Woburn, which is just north of Boston, are also being affected by illegal immigration, while wealthy liberal places like the one where Gov. Maura Healey (D) lives are not.
Carr went on to say, “Taunton, Massachusetts, is a blue-collar town with a Republican mayor and a Republican City Council. There’s one hotel with 169 rooms that the state has taken over and signed a contract with until 2029.” “It’s crazy that they not only bring in illegal immigrants to fill every room, but also feed them three times a day. Woburn is another town of working-class people…”
“The other day, I talked to a woman… She said, “Why don’t we have a mini-METCO program? We’re surrounded by rich communities like Lexington, Arlington, where the governor lives, and Winchester.” “But all of these illegal immigrants, mostly from Haiti, are going to be sent to school in Woburn, which is a working-class city,” Carr said.
Carr added, “The wealthy communities aren’t interested.” “You know, the yard signs say, ‘Hate has no home here,’ but they don’t want to bring them into their schools. “Can all the rich liberals take in some illegal aliens into their homes?” asked the governor and deputy governor, Kim Driscoll (D).
“I can’t tell you, and there’s no answer, of course. It’s “not in my back yard” (NIMBY). It’s like when DeSantis sent up a planeload of people last spring. I also think that people are angry about that, and not just in Massachusetts and New York… It’s also in Ohio. It’s in all of these places,” he said.
