…and that’s pretty much all Lord Damp Nut is getting, bigly, for his Jacksonville Floriduh nominating convention invite.
We already know that Willard is not going and I’m pretty sure our Brat-in-Chief didn’t invite him to his party, that’ll show him!
On Monday, the New York Times reported four more planned no-shows: Senators Roy Bluntand Pat Roberts and Florida Representatives Francis Rooney. Even more appear to be on the fence about the whole thing, including Marco Rubio of Florida;

John Thune, the number two Republican in the Senate; and Liz Cheney, who has been increasingly critical of Trump as of late.
Who else isn’t coming?
A surge of new infections is making many Republicans, including Chuck Grassley, squeamish about attending. And Trump’s mishandling of the pandemic, along with the escalation of his racist culture wars, may lead some vulnerable Republicans to want to keep their distance; Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, both noted for their “disappointment” with the president, have each said they do not plan to attend.

Here’s the best quote:
“Everybody just assumes no one is going,” Illinois Representative Darin LaHood, an honorary state co-chair of the Trump campaign who has RSVP’d no to the convention, told the Times.
