In the past few weeks, Donald Trump has had dinner with a Hitler lover and a neo-Nazi, he has vowed to pardon those jailed January 6 participants (including the seditionist, don’t call me Elmer, Elmer Rhodes) and terminate parts of the Constitution. He denies saying this last part, but this is what he texted,
“A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution. Our great ‘Founders’ did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!”
In a normal world, in a world before Trump became President, any one of these three incidents, would have resulted in the Republicans disqualifying him from running for President, in 2024. In fact, the Republican Party is supposedly the Party that believes and will forever defend the Constitution. However, times are not normal for the GOP. There has basically been silence on all three issues, except for the usual suspects like Liz Cheney and Mitt Romney. Other Republicans, who do raise the Constitution issue, raise it in such a way that Trump is not mentioned by name. Others come out with the usual “I have not heard what he said” or, “I do not follow what he says” or, “There are so many more important issues like money going to a corrupt Ukraine”. Yeah, right.
Bottom line is, Trump still has a hold on the Republican base. Many Republicans are still afraid that if they speak against Trump, thewy will be voted out in the next primary. Look at the three incidents above and ask yourself, what does that say about the typical Republican base voter? Are they ok with neo-Nazis, and, with seditionists? Are these strong second amendment defenders ok with the Constitustion being terminated? Head spinning.
