So how’s about that bipartisanship working for you now, Sen. Joe Manchin? The Pod Save Whatevs email thingie points us to:
- Bannon and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) posted the office phone numbers of traitorous pro-highway Republicans on social media, setting off a wave of menacing calls. Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI) received a voicemail in which a caller said, “I hope you die. I hope everybody in your fucking family dies,” while calling him a “fucking piece of shit traitor.” Another caller instructed Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) to slit his wrists and “rot in hell.” Basically just the standard political rhetoric you’d expect around legislation to improve railroads and airports.
- While GOP leaders have inflamed their own base against members who voted against the same kind of bill Trump tried to pass, they’ve made no move to hold Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) accountable for posting an anime video that depicted him killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (R-NY). A group of House Democrats will introduce a resolution to censure Gosar on Friday, and his own siblings are begging for someone to hold him accountable before his behavior gets worse, but it’s still crickets from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
Look, the Republicans even hate each other enough that they are issuing death threats against themselves. I think we can safely say that bipartisanship is dead and buried. There is only one rule in the GOP: Give Hair Füror whatever he wants, whenever he wants it.
