Trump campaign adviser Steve Cortez calls Frank Luntz a ‘coward’ for declining debate

Trump campaign senior adviser for strategy Steve Cortez ripped GOP pollster Frank Luntz on Twitter, calling him a “coward” who is refusing to discuss the election results.

“Unsurprisingly, @FrankLuntz cowardly declines my sincere debate offer. I’m the ‘man in the arena’ fighting for a cause while he hurls insults from the political skybox. His pollster/consultant class represents everything working people hate about politics,” Cortez began in a tweet thread.

Cortez’s initial tweet contained a screenshot of a response by Luntz that read, “We can do it much quicker right here: Trump didn’t win. I yield my time.”

“As verified by the Laptop from Hell emails, Frank ingratiates himself with any Swamp power brokers, takes all sides of any issue, and personifies the ossified permanent political class,” Cortez continued, appearing to reference communications retrieved from Hunter Biden’s laptop, the contents of which were originally reported by the New York Post just weeks before the Nov. 3 election.

“[O]ur America First movement challenges this crony cabal of Beltway bloviators and administrative state apparatchiks, and so they’ve resorted to myriad schemes to overthrow Trump: the Russia hoax, a sham impeachment, and, now, corrupting the 2020 election,” Cortez continued.

“But we fight on — as happy warriors on a patriotic mission. Frank, if you’re unwilling to debate man-to-man, then shut the hell up and stop tweeting at me constantly. Your fixation with me is creepy and weird,” Cortez said in conclusion.

In a separate tweet, Luntz criticized President Donald Trump’s legal team for making claims about voter fraud that appear to be too incredible to believe for most Americans.

“Not only does the Trump legal team ceaselessly embarrass themselves with claims like this, but they also potentially kill GOP voter enthusiasm for the upcoming Georgia Senate elections,” Luntz wrote in response to a tweet from Axios reporter Jonathan Swan, who questioned attorney Sidney Powell’s accusations of election corruption involving Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp.

On Saturday, Powell told Newsmax TV she has found evidence of a “biblical” proportion and implicated that both Kemp and Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger may have somehow profited from a $100 million purchase by the state of Dominion Voting Systems and software that she has said were used, in part, to steal the election from Trump.

When told that Kemp and Raffensperger have certified the state’s votes giving Democrat Joe Biden the win, Powell responded, “That’s a total farce.”

“Georgia’s probably going to be the first state I’m gonna blow up, and Mr. Kemp and the secretary of state need to go with it because they’re in on the Dominion [Voting Systems] scam with their last-minute purchase or reward of a contract to Dominion of $100 million,” she added.

On Thursday, Powell attended a news conference with presidential lawyer Rudy Giuliani and Trump campaign counsel Jenna Ellis, which they said served as an “opening statement” in their legal battles to challenge election results in several states.

Trump would later refer to Powell as a member of his campaign’s legal team, but on Sunday the campaign put out a statement distancing itself from Powell, saying she is “practicing law on her own” in regards to challenging election results.

“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own. She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity,” Ellis said.

In response, Powell noted, “I understand today’s press release.  I will continue to represent #WeThePeople who had their votes for Trump and other Republicans stolen by massive fraud through Dominion and Smartmatic, and we will be filing suit soon. The chips will fall where they may, and we will defend the foundations of this great Republic. #KrakenOnSteroids.”
