Drowning Man Swims To Sinking Ship

Exciting News From Captain Stupid!

This story answers our question about how badly split the GQP is:

An exclusive Suffolk University/USA TODAY Poll finds Trump’s support largely unshaken after his second impeachment trial in the Senate, this time on a charge of inciting an insurrection in the deadly assault on the Capitol Jan. 6.

By double digits, 46%-27%, those surveyed say they would abandon the GOP and join the Trump party if the former president decided to create one. The rest are undecided.

And if this came to pass, well, both factions would probably be destroyed.

But why does the Coup Klux Klan feel this way?

“We feel like Republicans don’t fight enough for us, and we all see Donald Trump fighting for us as hard as he can, every single day,” Brandon Keidl, 27, a Republican and small-business owner from Milwaukee, says in an interview after being polled. “But then you have establishment Republicans who just agree with establishment Democrats and everything, and they don’t ever push back.”

They never cite any examples of him fighting for them, nor policy prescriptions, nor, well, anything, just “He says what I’m thinking” and that’s a pretty scary idea because the former guy is incapable of thinking of anything or anyone other than himself.

    Any chance of tying a millstone to drowning man’s feet?

  2. “He says what I”m thinking” == “He’s hurting the people he’s supposed to be hurting!”

    It’s never been anything but violent grievance fantasies. (and all too often, not fantasy….)

    We’re seeing the Rwandization of a significant part of the GOP. These people do not consider non-MAGA’s to be opponents, they consider them to be enemies.

      BDR – my thoughts exactly. This has turned into THE worst Kabuki performance of Lord of the Flies set against a Rwandan backdrop I’ve ever seen performed.

      EXACTLY! These trump supporters never want to think of anyone or anything other than themselves, and Trump is their perfect avatar.

      It’s like Wall Street guys idolizing Gordon Gecko.

    “Fighting as hard as he can?” If thumb action on twitter keys were combat then, well.
    The New York Post gets this about right…

    One thing’s for sure. You’ll never find an original thought anywhere amongst these poor bastards. And especially not from their dear leader.

    Howdy y’all!
    I’ve often wondered what they mean by fighting? Don’t we fight with our votes and our legislative, executive, and judicial processes? Isn’t our fighting done by participating to those processes? Given the lack of governance coming out of the GOP in general and Trump ever, aren’t they by definition not actually fighting for anyone other than those that benefit from their inaction, ahem, the wealthy.

    Huzzah!

    Maybe the MAGAts are thinking about that time the former guy “beat up” Vince McMahon at a rasslin’ show. And you KNOW McMahon would have kicked his ass in a real fight.

    Hello TG. He says what I am thinking is code IMO. The maga cult supporters love tRump because they want to be him. They admire the way he gets to insult and bully anyone, and then people still have to obey him. He openly mocks and is racist yet no one can tell him to stop but if they did those things they would lose their jobs. Not hero tRump, who is fighting for them and telling the truth they know so well but mainstream media hides. They see him violate all the rules and still be treated grand, talk like they do and still get on TV, so they think he is just like them, they feel a kinship, they think maybe they could be him if they had a chance instead of being held down by the liberal Democrats and POC / LGBTQ+.
