Didn’t take long, did it? Now even a ‘honeymoon’ period … baseless attacks began right away!! … “Now, they’re calling for unity with brainwashed conspiracy theorists cultists and white nationalists. After four years of Trump racism and after staging a bloody failed coup attempt against our government, I don’t want to hear these assholes complaining that their white privilege is being denied.”
The Republican Party sold its soul for Donald Trump. Positions? What positions? In service to their orange messiah, the GOP vanquished all their previous positions. The party is more of a cult than a party. Now, they’re trying to figure out if they’re a party in pursuit of positions again or if they still need to bow down before the Trump base.
The one positive for the GOP is that Donald Trump is off Twitter. Can you imagine the tweet storm we would have had the pleasure of experiencing if he was still on the platform? I feel sorry for the poor caddy he’s probably barking at right about now over President Joe Biden erasing his “legacy” of hate and stupidity.
If Donald Trump forms his own party with the hypocritical name, “Patriot Party,” that doesn’t allow the GOP to be a party of issues again. They will be reminded…

“I’m the descendant of a slave who was also named Amanda, so looking out and seeing the Lincoln Memorial, looking out and seeing the Washington Monument, seeing the flags laid in remembrance of those lost to COVID, it’s a breathtaking moment,” Gorman recalled.
“And on the other hand, you have all the human anxieties like ‘I’m cold,’ and, ‘I know Biden is right behind me, how does my hair look?’ and, ‘My nose is sniffling,’ ‘Don’t trip, don’t mess up,'” she continued. “So you kind of have to let go of all of that and let yourself be a vessel for the poem.”
