Sally Yates Supporters Want Her to Run for Office

Sally Yates is out of a job after being told two words that hundreds of participants on The Apprentice have heard before her: “You’re fired!”

The former acting Attorney General was fired after instructing Justice Department lawyers not to defend Trump’s first executive order on immigration (the one temporarily suspending travel from seven countries with high levels of Islamic terrorism).

She made a rare public appearance after her termination on Monday, testifying about the Justice Department’s investigation into ties between President Donald Trump and Russia. There was no new information – and we were merely reminded that there is still zero evidence to back up the leftwing Russian conspiracy theory.

While ending her 27-year career with the Justice Department, Yates’ credibility among those “resisting” the Trump administration has soared, leading to many on the Left pushing her to run for office, hoping to score a symbolic anti-Trump victory.

Thus far, her fans have picked the position of governor of Georgia:

Some Democrats in Georgia, Yates’s home state, want her to run in the 2018 gubernatorial race on the grounds that her prominent clashes with Trump positions her as a concrete embodiment of the Democratic “resistance.”

“Sally Yates’s calm and strong demeanor showed me she could be a great governor of Georgia. … Her bold resistance, and how she stood up to a president who ordered her to do something unlawful and unconstitutional, has catapulted her profile,” said Tharon Johnson, a Georgia Democratic strategist and campaign aide to former President Barack Obama.

“She will have to give Georgians a really good reason why she’s not considering running for a constitutional office in 2018.”

Yates is an odd choice for the position, and Georgia is the wrong state to pick. Not only are Democrats hoping that Yates runs based on the sole “qualifying” criteria that she got fired by Donald Trump, Georgia mostly voted for the man who fired her.

Georgia hasn’t had a Democrat governor since 2003 – so good luck to Yates on that front, too.

She’ll need it.

What do you think? Should Republicans support a Yates’ gubernatorial run as an easy victory? Let us know in the comments below!

  • Uh, this woman has absolutely no personality, certainly not the personality of a retail politician. She has never run for office. She has been appointed to office. She is a lawyer and former prosecutor. I hope the Dems do run her and pour millions of dollars into her campaign. She'll be easy work for the Republican.

  • Oh Brian, you've been drinking too much of the Kool aid. President Trump has done very well in detering illegals, bringing back jobs, and restoring faith in our Justice System. There is no war on America and/or the Constitution as you say. He is doing for America and her people what should have been done for 8 long years. Sally Yates should have been fired, she disobeyed a direct order from the President. Have a good day and do read something besides the liberal media.

  • And yet Georgia is about to elect a congressman from a heavily red district that hasn't voted for a democrat in over 25 years. Georgia is not as "safely": trump as is implied. People across the nation are getting sick and tired of the orange baboon, his total war on America and the Constitution, and his deliberate attack on American citizens. The resistance is growing daily and is not ever going to end until the orange baboon is forcibly removed, tried and convicted. As for Sally Yates, she is a hero but the decision to run for office is hers and ONLY hers and as usual, this fascist rightwing rag is merely spouting fear based on assumption, lies, and conjecture.
