Well, I don’t disagree with him on that point, but with that statement the irony is breathtaking.
And I’m sure the GOP base is like “How DARE he criticize our royal family!!!”
That may be, but in that case I could definitely see the MAGA base sitting out 2024 or voting for some seriously wacko third party candidate. See: the “Freedom Caucus” voting with the DEMs to screw over McCarthy.
They are the party of “burn it down”, it could apply (fingers crossed) to their own party.
All true, but I’m still in favor of the media covering their criticisms of Trump, as long as they aren’t also portrayed as principled heroes. Voters should be frequently reminded that even the people who were closest with Trump see him as unfit for office
Which makes it easy to dismiss his criticism as “sour grapes,” something Trump will absolutely do (and his followers will go along with it, because for once he’s not entirely wrong).
For Trump’s supporters, I imagine he’s basically bulletproof when it comes to these kinds of charges of corruption - because the people pointing them out were either complicit and thus not to be trusted, or were always “anti-Trump” and thus not to be trusted.
I think we’re on the same team here. I am sorry for being a jerk. This stuff is definitely frustrating and sucks, and I personally don’t feel like I have something worthwhile to contribute, so will keep my trap shut.
That’s your money," he said. "That’s your money he stole – and gave it to his family.
He does realize that Trump’s shameless dishonesty is WHY people like him, right? His supporters are happy to pay tribute to their griftlord as long as he promises to harness that complete lack of morality to punish brown people. They’ll gladly sabotage their own futures in order to hurt the right people. The cruelty is all that matters to them.
Has Kasich confirmed that, because the report in that article was based on the word of one of Kasich’s advisors? Even if it is true, the offer apparently came from Trump, Jr., not Trump himself, and Kasich said no. Kasich never endorsed Trump after he dropped out of the race, and, assuming we can take him at his word, didn’t vote for Trump, either. I don’t like Kasich (he’s still a conservative Republican at the end of the day), but as far as I know, he has consistently been a never Trumper from day 1.
