The Cult of Personality

Dump Trump (ITMFA!) and the Republicans

Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) has an interesting analysis of how the Senate voted on Hair Füror’s Emergency: essentially Senators who were up for re-election in 2020 did his bidding and Senators who are not up voted against him:

“Two weeks ago, Sen. Thom Tillis said President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration violated the separation of powers and created a dangerous precedent, stating in an op-ed that he would vote to reverse it.

“On Thursday, the North Carolina Republican flipped and sided with Trump on the border vote. While a dozen Senate Republicans joined Democrats to support a resolution undoing Trump’s move to fund a border wall, Tillis and all but one other Republican up for reelection in 2020 — Sen. Susan Collins of Maine — stuck with the president.

“The list includes Sen. Cory Gardner of blue-trending Colorado and Sen. Martha McSally, who was appointed this year but will face Arizona voters again in 2020 after losing a tough race in 2018. The vote underscores how little Republicans on the ballot in 2020 want to break with the president, even on an issue that divided the party and in states where Trump’s approval rating is low.”

That means that Comrade Stupid got 95% of the 2020 senators but only 64% of the non-2020 senators. We keep saying it, Stupid didn’t take over the Republican Party, he is the product of the Republican Party. It isn’t that he owns them, he is them. Don’t make the mistake that the #NeverTrumpers are making; the GOP is dead and in its place is a Zombie cult of personality wearing a fright wig.
