Grifters Gotta Grift
I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like that. And that’s not from Hair Füror’s PAC, that’s a long-standing organized GOP entity.
Welcome to the 4th Reich, Republicans.

UPDATE 1: Tiger Beat’s afternoon email thingie talks to the head of the NRCC:
— EMMER VS. TRUMP?: “‘He’s a private citizen and he’s entitled to his own opinion,’ says NRCC chairman TOM EMMER when asked about [DONALD] TRUMP’s continued focus on the 2020 election and potential distracting effects on the 2022 midterms,” via Jacob Rubashkin.
The Emmer line is a callback to a Playbook Interview in March when the congressman told me and Rachael that Trump getting involved in the GOP congressional primaries was “not gonna be helpful.”
“He can do whatever he wants,” Emmer said back then. “But I would tell him that it’s probably better for us that we keep these people and we make sure that we have a majority that can be sustained going forward.”
But this new statement seems to go a step further. We all know what “entitled to his own opinion” means in D.C. speak: “please, for the love of God, stop.” But that’s likely as far as Emmer will go in criticizing Trump — especially seeing as the party continues to embrace Trump for fundraising purposes.
Case in point: the NRCC’s latest text message to supporters , accusing them of being “traitors” to Donald Trump for not donating money to the NRCC, and giving them “17 minutes” to correct the record by contributing. (h/t Andrew Solender)
