I have been wondering why so many Republicans are still supporting our lame duck President and why they risk their own political futures for somebody like Donald Trump. I finally figured it out! When the Republican congressional members jumped into bed with Donald Trump, it was not enough for King Donald. King Donald required that they all must get a pedicure , put on some lipstick and leave some mints on the nightstand when they quietly crawled out of the room the next morning. So now, the Republicans are in a lose/lose situation with Donald. They have NOWHERE TO GO BUT DOWN ! They are between that rock and a hard place. If they flipped on Trump, I am sure they fear some of their own voters that elected them. If they do not, they will be branded as traitors to our democracy right along side of Donald Trump. (and maybe that is ok with them). The difference between loyalty and foolishness can be a thin line. The legacy of Donald Trump will not be pretty. However, on a positive note, he makes every other President in our History look pretty damn good !
Congressional Democrats have been down on TRUMP ever since the 2016 election while the Congressional Republicans have all been “going down” on TRUMP. ( EUPHEMISTICALLY SPEAKING OF COURSE!).
BUY WHY ? I figured it out and it is not complicated. The Republicans have nowhere to go but DOWN and it is Donald Trump that put them in this situation. Prior to the 2016 election, Donald Trump pandered to every extremist group and that included Neo Nazis, The Ku Klux Klan and any racist extremist groups that would vote for him. I believe these groups now present the “biggest” threat to Donald Trumps life. The Republicans in Congress are still supporting Trump because they made their beds 4 years ago and they had no choice. Now they have to sleep in their beds. I think most of Trumps supporters from 2016 STILL support him. It is easy to get bamboozled and be in awe of great wealth. ( Even though Trump does not have great wealth. ) Most people do not want to be called a fool. Many people do not want to think of themselves as a fool. Not me and not you !
REMEMBER: EVERYBODY PLAYS THE FOOL, SOMETIMES, WITH NO EXCEPTION TO THE RULE ! (the Main Ingredient !) I know one of those guys ! DONALD TRUMP IS THE ONLY FOOL IN THIS STORY.
However, I think Robert De Niro summed it up best when he said;
“FUCK TRUMP !”
I am hoping and praying for Georgians to put Country before Party.
We can not afford to HAMSTRING our new President and Vice President and their Administration. Mitch McConnel has sold his soul to somebody!
HAPPY NEW YEAR-WE ARE GOING TO BE OK! OUR DEMOCRACY WORKS!
