It’s one thing to be shameless, it’s another entirely to be shameful. But it’s a rare witches brew that is required to create people who are so craven, desperate, and greedy that they are incapable of feeling either one.
That being said, welcome to todays GOP caucus. Today was the first Sunday following the release and unsealing of the Trump indictments, which means that it was the first chance for soulless GOP MAGA sycophants and toadies to take to the airwaves, and defend Traitor Tot on the Sunday morning political talk shows.
It was about as pathetic as you’ve come to expect from The Gang That Couldn’t Sh*t Straight. just a quick sampling. Hey! I had to watch this dreck, why should you get off scot free?
- Trump Fluffer in Chief Gym Bag Jordan went on a non FUX News show, ABC I believe it was, and it was like watching a cat batting around a rubber mouse. Jordan tried a classic GOP bait-and-switch, throwing out the dual excuses that Trump declassified everything when he was President, and when he was challenged on it, tempered it to He could have declassified it all at any time when he was President. When the moderator repeatedly pressed him, Jordan tripped over his own shoelaces that it’s a wonder his wife doesn’t make him wear loafers when he leaves the house. What he really sounded like was that southern lawyer in My Cousin Vinny who couldn’t get two words out without stuttering in court
- MAGAt wingnut Kari Lake was even more obnoxious, and she isn’t even running for anything! At the NC state GOP convention she laid out this dire threat, I have a word of advice for Attorney General Merrick Garland. If he wants to get to Trump, he’s going to have to go through 75 million of us, and most of us are card carrying NRA members. Oh Kari, “2nd Amendment remedies?” Quick fact check for Swoon Lake. By its own admission the NRA has about 5 million members, a decades low
- Former VP and Trump chew toy Mike Pence is as helpless as a kitten in a sack. Repeatedly over the weekend he demanded that Attorney General Merrick Garland get behind a podium, and explain to the American people why he authorized this unjust persecution of a former President. The poor sick puppy. Fact Check. Garland didn’t authorize the indictments, that was Jack Smith’s call. Garland was advised and deferred to Smith, per protocols. Besides, Garland appointed Smith Special Counsel specifically so that Garland didn’t have to deal with mental midgets like Pence every day.
It goes on and on, but I’ll spare you. The burning question is why the GOP keeps running down this same damn rabbit hole. They looked like world class schmucks when they backed Trump’s disproven claims in two impeachment claims in 2020. And they looked like double barrel world class schmucks when they backed Trump’s idiotic Stop the Steal! campaign in 2020 and 2022, and their own voters took it out on them. Why keep flogging the same dead equine for the same three time loser?
It was the Reverend Al Sharpton who provided the answer on Politics Nation. In one segment he had former Nevada GOP state Chair Amy Tarkanian on. She’s the wife of locally celebrated eight time loser Danny Tarkanian. And she put it in the perfect context. I know Reverend Al, it seems inconceivable, and at first it mystified me too. But the solution is actually quite simple. Money. Right now Trump is already fundraising off of his indictment, and if you look at the majority of his GOP caucus supporters, they’re fundraising off of their support for Trump over his indictment too. They all want their piece of the donor pie.
Bingo! There it is, in its purest distilled form. It’s all about the Benjamins, baby. The vast majority of the GOP caucus on both chambers has long ago shed any real question about just how despicable a POS Trump really is. But since they need to raise funds for their own reelections, and the way to do that is to siphon off of Trump’s hose.
And there’s good reason for them to look at it that way. First, the mainstream GOP big dollar donors are sitting on their wallets. As long as Trump is the leading contender, they’re not donating to Trump, they’re not donating to the RNC, which provides money to candidates, and they’re not donating to pro Trump candidates. Why throw good money after bad. And second, El Pendejo Presidente has such a lock on small money donors with his vaunted fundraising machine that there’s nothing left for them. Trump is literally starving the party of funds.
It’s fitting in an almost Mel Brooks sort of way, isn’t it? There’s hardly anybody in the GOP who actually believes Trump’s bullsh*t anymore. But they literally built this monster, and they let FrankenTrump off of the table, and now he’s so ravaged the countryside that there’s nothing left for them to eat. Let ’em choke on it I say.
