Former GOP Senate candidate says US is ‘drifting away’ from God: ‘You think Putin will liberate us?’

During an interview with right-wing conspiracy theorist Edward Szall, former 2020 GOP Senate candidate Lauren Witzke lamented what she sees as America’s separation from God. According to her, a certain authoritarian world leader could bring us back from the brink.

“We are just drifting farther and farther away from God, and God help us — what can you say? Pray for these people,” Witzke said. “Because we are absolutely going astray as a nation.”

There was then a brief pause before she said, “You think Putin will liberate us?”

According to Szall, “That is perfectly fair for us to say.” He then said that people will likely think they’re Putin supporters after hearing Witzke’s comment.

“I wish we had a leader,” Witzke said.
