One of Atlanta radio’s major conservative voices did not hold back in his reaction to the Senate runoff elections in Georgia. When it became clear that the Democrats will likely win both races, Erick Erikson took to Twitter late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning to put the blame squarely on President Trump. Erickson also called those claiming election fraud in the Senate races, “F*ucking Idiots”. Erickson  also addressed the topic on WRGA’s The Erick Erickson Show Wednesday morning.

“This was not so much the Democrats won, but the Republicans surrendered,” Erickson said. “When you have a President that goes around the state saying the November election was stolen, that it was rigged, Trump voters stayed home. Georgia has a Trump problem. Trump voters bowed down to their Golden Calf and screwed the rest of the GOP.”

Erickson also has strong Tweets and words for those conspiracy theorists and Trump supporters who believe the elections were stolen.

“It’s not a sinister dump of votes from DeKalb County when the Republican officials knew it was 170,000 votes outstanding,” Erickson tweeted after a large batch of ballots were counted from the Democratic stronghold.  “That’s not a conspiracy to contrive votes. Why are you people such willful f*cking idiots?”

Erickson doubled down on that rhetoric during his show Wednesday morning.

“The election was not stolen. it was conducted fairly,” he said “Yet all the Trump-humpers still believe the lie that this was somehow stolen. The Democrats won because they did a better job identifying potential democratic voters and getting them out to vote. You know what Trump and his supporters did? (They were) Running around whining that they lost in November, raising money for legal challenges that were going to fail and I kid you not, selling Trump wrapping paper for Christmas. If they had actually focused on winning the election, the outcome would have been different, but here we are. The Democrats did not murder the Republicans last night. The Republicans committed suicide.”

In many circles, Erickson is considered a conservative evangelical and according to his bio page on WRGA, he is currently pursuing a degree in theology. It remains to be seen whether his salty language via tweet or his sharp criticism of President Trump will drive away evangelical listeners since Trump enjoys high approval ratings among that demographic.

Erickson also hosts The Erick Erickson Show from 4-6 pm weekdays on WSB out of Atlanta.

“I took a pretty cool new job! Working 9-noon Monday -Friday on WJR 760,” he said. “I remember JP McCarthy as a kid on this station! I am blessed.”

The Emmy award-winning investigative reporter spent nearly 30-years at Detroit NBC affiliate WDIV before he was fired in 2019 for making an alleged racial comment about another reporter.

“The station has a zero-tolerance policy on racially insensitive comments, and they determined, despite the intent and context of my statement, that it violated the policy,” he said at the time.

Dietz garnered 17 Emmy awards in 26 years at WDIV. He began his career in Traverse City, Michigan in 1988.

WJR has not revealed if Dietz will continue hosting the show alone or if a co-host will be brought in.
