    Boehner finally sees Trump for the albatross he is. Strange how he didn't speak out until after Trump's election donation scam was revealed. NOW will the Republicans realize that Trump's star is fading and they need to move past him if they want their party to survive?

    I really don't think the lynch mob cares about silly things like politics.

    They’re stupid enough to continue to ride that train, but it will come to a stop at some point. The more time that goes by, Trump will become less appealing.

    Trump became less appealing sometime in the 80's...

    They are fucking evangelicals, and will follow their traditional pattern. During the 1990s, Southern Baptist churches lost half their congregation when their preachers started competing over who could produce the most vitriolic sermons. They all came back again, just like the preachers said they would, once the competition died down a few years later. Right now, Donald Duck is the star of reality TV, Professional Wrestling, and Televangelism and he's careful to keep the absurdity coming, and to avoid any real confrontations. He's a con artist, even as professional wrestling caricatures go, and is the consummate poor white trash born with a silver spoon in his mouth, making him the quintessential American.

    I think you’re correct. His supporters who stormed congress are going to wonder why they are in jail, and he isn’t. His supporters who donated their life savings are going to wonder why they got nothing from him.

    More of the GOP alumni need to come out and speak against Trump. Dick Cheney, George W. Bush, Colin Powell, etc., etc., - they could do this and finally put the nail in the coffin on all this Trump shit.

    Mike pence is persona non grata in the trump orbit, and since we know trump will never live down the fact
    that mike pence didn't fall on his sword for trump, he'll never forgive him.

    If Pence plays it smart, he would line himself up with the anti-Trump GOP and completely stay away from the “stolen election” rhetoric in his campaign messaging. “Stop the steal” slowly but surely getting watered down along with all the other MAGA nonsense that’s making its way towards irrelevance.

    Pence launches group as Trump officials line up new roles

    excerpt:

    "Pence's Advancing American Freedom, which could serve as a springboard for his own presidential campaign, will aim to promote the Trump administration’s achievements and work as a counterpoint to the Biden agenda.

    The new group is one of several launched in recent weeks by former aides of President Donald Trump. Shunned by corporate big money gigs, they are instead opening their own shops and embracing Trump's legacy as they seek to capitalize on his continued popularity with the Republican base.

    They include Trump's former senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, the architect of polarizing immigration policies, who on Wednesday announced the creation of America First Legal, a group that Miller envisions as an American Civil Liberties Union for conservatives."

    Meese, Conway, Kudlow, and Lighthizer.

    Building a bridge to the 14th century,


    Pence launches group as Trump officials line up new roles

    excerpt:

    "Pence's group includes an unpaid advisory board made up of conservative leaders including the anti-abortion rights advocate Marjorie Dannenfelser and Ed Meese, who was President Ronald Reagan's attorney general, as well as former Trump administration officials including former counselor Kellyanne Conway, economic adviser Larry Kudlow and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer. That makeup is a nod to Pence's broader effort to position himself as someone who can appeal to various parts of the party."

    It's a real problem for Republicans; one that will take even greater import from now until 2024. GOP lawmakers that had hopes to run for president will find their plans totally mangled by what Trump decides to do. On the day he announces his intention to run, their plans for moving forward are completely altered.

    So what do they do in the meantime? Do they try to keep Trump down, even knowing that any efforts to do so will sit badly with his supporters? (We've seen what they're capable of, haven't we?) Or do they just give up and throw themselves behind Trump again, knowing that the country (and democracy) will be hurt if he wins?

    I'll say this; I dread waking up the day after Election Day in 2024 and finding that we're in for the same destructive garbage we got ourselves into at the end of 2016. Plainly, it's not just up to the Democrats to fight this; Republican lawmakers need to as well, even if means putting off their own political ambitions and dreams.

    If Mike does run, they'll be against each other. Trump's ego is very large. He might run again?

    In plain English, The Republican Party is going through a civil war.
