If there were ever more tone-deaf, out-of-touch human beings on planet Earth, it’s the leadership of the Republican Party.
Democrats have no problems connecting to their base: The party is socialist-Marxist and attracts socialists and Marxists like flies to turds.
But after nearly six years of watching their base flock to Donald Trump, the RINO Establishment Class still doesn’t get what motivates his voters to support him and the GOP in general.
Three weeks ago may have been the nadir of Donald Trump's political influence. A meager crowd of supporters gathered to send him off to Florida, he'd lost access to Twitter and the Senate's most powerful Republican, Mitch McConnell, seemed fully prepared to ghost him out of the party.
Now, heading into what could have been an historic [sic] bipartisan rebuke, the former president and his team are confident both of his acquittal and that he'll come out of the trial with his influence over the Republican party all but cemented.
Not even Trump’s closest allies can believe the turn in fortunes.
'He's Teflon, right. It's been a month since the Capitol riot and I would say, for the most part, the GOP has coalesced back behind him,' said a former Trump campaign official.
“Already, Trump aides contend, the impeachment process has proved beneficial to the ex-president — exposing disloyalty within the party's ranks and igniting grassroots backlash against Republicans who have attempted to nudge the GOP base away from Trump,” Politico continued. “Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse spent last week fending off constituent criticisms and censures from state party officials after he compared Trumpism to ‘a civic cancer for the nation.’ And Trump's allies believe the ex-president's impending impeachment trial will further illuminate who the turncoats are.
'It's going to help expose more bad apples that he can primary if any senators vote to convict,' added the former campaign official.
And there will be some who do. Let’s see if we can predict who they are: That idiot Sasse; Mitt Romney; Susan Collins; and Lisa Murkowski — with a ‘guest RINO’ yet to be named.
But who will win in the end? That would be Trump; after that swamp rat Liz Cheney voted to impeach Trump, she immediately got a primary challenger for 2022 who immediately jumped ahead of her by more than 20 points.
And if Trump should decide to start his own party, the GOP as we know it is DOA.
The GOP leadership has no idea why the party’s voters support Trump so vehemently. And they don’t care to know. They just want rid of him because he threatens the DemRINO duopoly that has been ruling the country with the permission of their corporate masters.
