Republicans Say The Box Office Success Of ‘Top Gun’ Sequel Means GOP Will Win The Midterm Elections

Despite the fact that it’s far too early to predict exactly what will happen in the upcoming midterm elections, some Republicans are already suggesting that the success of a Hollywood movie is proof that they’re going to win and win big come November.

For example, Steve Gruber of right-wing “news” network Real America’s Voice, had to say about “Top Gun: Maverick” currently reigning as the #1 movie in the country:

 “This is by far the biggest warning of all for mealy-mouth politicians and feckless weasels of all stripes, everywhere, RINOs, Democrats and socialists, that in November it’s American pride that will be returning.

“And it will be Americans reawakening and taking back our country, and it is American pride that has driven the very rare A+ rating for the brand new Top Gun film.”

That’s one hell of a leap from a movie to an entire election. Take a look at the trailer and tell me if you see anything that suggests squat about an election.

Not everyone was buying what Gruber was selling, and they quickly laid a fact check on him.

It remains to be seen what will happen in November, but as the old saying, goes (with a minor update), Don’t count your Mavericks before they hatch.
