Last week, we reported that the legendary Pat Sajak, who has long been one of Hollywood’s only openly conservative performers, was retiring as host of “Wheel Of Fortune” after 42 years with the game show. Now Sajak’s replacement has been revealed.
Unfortunately, the liberals are also using this opportunity to attack Sajak for his conservative political views. Find out more about this later in the story.

Variety reported that longtime “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest will replace Sajak as “Wheel Of Fortune” host.
“I am truly honored to walk in the footsteps of the legendary Pat Sajak,” Seacrest wrote in a statement shared on his social media pages. “I can say, along with the rest of America, that it has been a privilege and pure joy to watch Pat and Vanna on our television screens for an unprecedented 40 years, making us smile every night and feel like home. with them.”
“Pat, I love how you always celebrated the contestants and made viewers at home feel comfortable,” he continued. “I look forward to learning all I can from you during this transition.”
Seacrest concluded his statement by saying he “looks forward to continuing the tradition of turning the wheel and working alongside the great Vanna White.”

Sajak announced last week that he will be stepping down from hosting “Wheel Of Fortune” after the upcoming 41st season. He’s hosted the show since 1981 and has won three Daytime Emmy Awards along with 19 other nominations for his work there.
“Well, the time has come. I have decided that our 41st season, which starts in September, will be our last,” Sajak wrote of his departure. “It was a wonderful run, and I will have more to say in the months to come. Thank you all. (If nothing else, this will keep the clickbait sites busy!)”

Sajak attacked for his conservative views
Sadly, but unsurprisingly, hateful leftists tried to spoil this moment for Sajak by seizing the opportunity to launch vicious attacks on him for his conservative political views. After Sajak announced his retirement, New Republic published an op-ed titled “Don’t Vers One Out for Pat Sajak, ‘Wheel of Fortune’s’ Die-Hard Right-Wing Host.”
“You might want to hit the brakes to pour one for the familiar face,” the article read. “It turns out that when he wasn’t busy gracing our TV screens, he was on the front lines pushing a right-wing agenda.”
The editorial continues to slam Sajak every time he has even hinted that he is a conservative over the years. It is particularly disputed that he attended the Claremont Institute’s black-tie Lincoln Day dinner in 1999 “alongside other prominent conservatives, such as Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas”.
The editorial then states that during this event, “Sajak lamented that “these days, especially when it comes to teaching our young people, in terms of American history, the rules have been changed” , complaining that “political correctness and other notions” have “watered down” some of “history’s most important people and events”.
I can’t really argue with Sajak there!
The op-ed also calls him out for his past tweets, including one from 2014 that read, “I now believe the global warming alarmists are unpatriotic racists knowingly misleading for their own ends.”
Unsurprisingly, the op-ed ends with a hand twist on Sajak pictured with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) last fall.
“All this to say: don’t be in too much of a rush to pour one for Pat Sajak,” reads the editorial’s last line.

“Pat Sajak is an asshole”
The San Francisco Gate published a similar op-ed on Sajak which was bluntly titled “Pat Sajak is an asshole”.
After calling Sajak conservative, this op-ed accused him of being an “empty suit”, “that estate agent your wife didn’t like” and someone who “has all the warmth of a host of Cheesecake Factory”. ”
The editorial continues to look forward to Sajak’s departure.
“It’s a chance to make ‘Wheel of Fortune’, for the first time in decades, good TV,” reads the editorial. “No one was ever going to replace Trebek in the heart of ‘Jeopardy!’ Fans, on the other hand, replacing Sajak in your heart will be as emotionally taxing as finding a new factor.
Journalist of the SF Chronicle @drewmagary dislikes Sajak’s conservative politics and calls him an asshole. I would say this is a clear case of projection.

All of this simply because Sajak refuses to give up his conservative views and become just another liberal sheep in Hollywood.
Ultimately, we can only hope that Sajak doesn’t let hateful liberals ruin his retirement for him. He had an incredible tenure on “Wheel Of Fortune,” and bitter left-wing naysayers can never take that away from him.
We will all miss you, Mr. Sajak!
