Apologies for two political posts in a row, but I thought both the previous and current posts are important. The GOP has apparently turned their backs on President Trump at the time he needs them the most. I cannot remember a president treated so poorly by his enemies… and his “allies.”
Where is McConnell? McCarthy? Barr? One of the most important Presidential elections in our nation’s history is being stolen right out from under us—and so-called Republican “leaders” are no where to be found.
Darren Beattie of Revolver News tweeted that he was informed by a White House official “Rick Scott and Marsha Blackburn are talking about Taiwan and Hong Kong… Little rand hasn’t tweeted anything. Lil’ Marco is counter signaling. McConnell has a blackout on this.” Even Lindsey Graham, chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is silent. The only Republican senators who have spoken out about the election fraud are Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley. The GOP largely appears to have abandoned the President..
Beatie isn’t wrong. Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley have been pretty good, but the rest of the GOP has left the president hanging out to dry. Trump reinvigorated a dying political party, helped change the federal courts and the SCOTUS. He helped get many new GOP politicians into office, and wooed many new voters into the fold.
And what does he get for all that work? Silence.
Few people close to the President seem to care about the Democrat’s fraudulent activities. Amongst them are Rudy Giuliani, Eric Trump, and Jason Miller, who have led a strong anti-fraud movement on the ground in Philadelphia. Another good actor is Former Acting Director of U.S. National Intelligence Ric Grenell, who has been focusing on securing Nevada. In Arizona, a crucial state on Trump’s pathway to victory, the only directly Trump-related event is a press conference hosted by David Bossie, Jeff Dewit, Kelly Ward, and Debbie Lesko.
Republicans’ silence on the issue is deafening. It speaks volumes about their priorities and allegiances—and it will not be forgotten. Establishment types and never-Trumpers have proven themselves incapable of setting aside policy differences to fight for the integrity and preservation of our constitutional republic.
It should surprise no one the GOP can be described as “fair weather friends.” It should also surprise no one that they would turn tail the second the president hit a bumpy stretch. With few exceptions, every one of these politicians are out for themselves. None of them could give a damn about President Trump or the voters who put him (and them) into office.
I guess they figured three years of good governance and leadership was simply too taxing. The GOP we all know and hate will be back in January, and they’ll be as feckless as ever.
