Senate Republicans Sour on Trump as They Try To Save Their Majority

Sens. John Cornyn and Ben Sasse have spoken out sharply against Trump's policies and character as the election nears.

|

Earlier this year, Senate Republicans saved Donald Trump's presidency from a premature end. Now some of those same senators are acting like they don't think Trump will be around much longer.

"The best check on a Biden presidency is for Republicans to have a majority in the Senate," Sen. Thom Tillis (R–N.C.) told Politico recently. And now two Senate Republicans are explicitly criticizing the president.

In an interview with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Sen. John Cornyn (R–Texas) claimed to have differed with Trump on several issues, including trade, the debt and deficit, and using military funds to build the border wall. Cornyn described his relationship with Trump as an almost strained one.

Similarly, Sen. Ben Sasse (R–Nebr.), in comments leaked to the Washington Examiner, described Trump as someone who "kisses dictators' butts" and "sells out our allies." Sasse went out to say that Trump "mocks evangelicals behind closed doors. His family has treated the presidency like a business opportunity. He's flirted with white supremacists." And he thinks young people may "become permanent Democrats because they've just been repulsed by the obsessive nature of our politics or if women who were willing to still vote with the Republican Party in 2016 decide that they need to turn away from this party permanently in the future."

These aren't the only Senate Republicans to speak negatively about the man in the White House. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R–Ky.) recently criticized the president's COVID-19 response, saying at an event in Kentucky that Trump was not "approaching protections from this illness in the same way that I thought was appropriate."

Unsurprisingly, Trump's response has been heated. On Twitter, he called "Little Ben Sasse" "stupid and obnoxious" and a "liability to the Republican Party" and urged the senator to "gracefully 'RETIRE.'"

Tillis, Sasse, Cornyn, and McConnell seem to be expecting a Trump loss, and thus may be preparing to stand as a more traditionally conservative opposition to a Biden administration. And Cornyn and Sasse may be trying preemptively to rehabilitate themselves from Trumpism. Both senators face reelection races, and the latter may have presidential ambitions of his own. While both Cornyn and Sasse are likely to win their elections, the fact that they feel the need to emphasize this message is telling.

There is only so much that words can do here. Both Cornyn and Sasse voted against bringing more witnesses to impeachment. Cornyn claims that he was opposed to using a national emergency declaration to fund Trump's border wall, but voted against a bill that would have stopped just that.

But even empty rhetoric can have political ramifications. Sasse and Cornyn's comments could be an early sign of a larger Senate trend.

      1. The honest, benevolent, and freedom-loving libertarians among us don’t exactly beat off to the thought of this, John, but… Since you couldn’t learn the easy way, to NOT throw your affections any way that the wind blows… We will cling to the hopes that you will learn that supporting autocrats does NOT get you ANY bonuses! Trump will throw you under the bus at the VERY instance that he finds it convenient, if not before then! Your support means NOTHING to him!

        We all know that you lust for a Trumptatorship… You think that Trump will let you in on the pussy-grabbing, as a reward for your support.

        Guess again!

        See “the night of the long knives” at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Night_of_the_Long_Knives… Ernst Röhm (head brownshirt, street brawler, for Hitler) thought his support of Hitler would leave him sitting pretty. So sorry, Ernst Röhm, Hitler had another thing coming for you…

          Yes! This FURTHER proves that Hitler was NOT a racist!
          Since even Hitler wasn’t a racist, we can pretty firmly conclude that racism isn’t a “thing” at all!

          1. On the off chance that anyone cares, AND gives a shit about CONTEXT (which liars like Mamma are entirely to dishonest to give a shit about), what was going on here, is that right-wing nut-jobs were being right-wing nut-jobs ass usual, and arguing that Proud Boys could NO WAY EVER be racists, because they accepted members of non-white races! So I pointed out that Hitler allied NAZIs with Japanese “Yellow Aryans”… So Hitler wasn’t racist, either!

            Disproving stupid ideas with MORE stupid ideas, using the same so-called “logic”, escapes the mentally handicapped among us, though…

            CRY MORE over imaginary hurtings of Your Precious Baby Feeeeelings, cry-wolf racism-mongerer whiner-crybaby!

            1. But you really said you eat shit.

              1. If you could be a little more juvenile, maybe.

                1. You mean like Sqrlsy?

                  1. I quit working at shoprite and now I make $65-85 per/h. How? I’m working online! My work didn’t exactly make me happy so I decided to take a chance on something new…HRd after 4 years it was so hard to quit my day job but now I couldn’t be happier.

                2. Are you new?
                  Sqrls has an admitted scat and coprophilia fetish, although he claims it’s never gone past the fantasy stage.

                  1. Just in case anyone is really new around here, this comments board is infested with Trump fans who make up shit about anyone they don’t like. Oddly, they don’t like libertarians even though they spend all their time on a libertarian website.

                    Also, way odd is that Mother’s Lament is a Canadian Trump fan. That’s right. He isn’t even American, but he is a total Republican partisan.

                    1. Yup.
                      Because the Democrats and Davos boys are evil and will destroy the West, and a cheesy real estate mogul is all that stands in their way.

                      There was just a big pro-Trump march in Montréal, and more Canadians have Trump 2020 stickers on their vehicles than for Canadian politicians.

                    2. Yes, full of people who care about this country and don’t want a bunch of progressives destroying it. This board is also full of leftists like WK who dream of just such an outcome.

            2. Do you jerk off when you imagine Biden winning.

              1. I think he does when he fantasizes about devouring the contents of Biden’s soiled diapers.

            3. they accepted members of non-white races! So I pointed out that Hitler allied NAZIs with Japanese “Yellow Aryans”

              Not at all the same thing. The Japanese were half way around the world.

      2. Or imagining what is on Hunter’s hard drive.

      3. Whoops, John forgot which sock he was logged in as

        1. LOL

      4. No, he usually imagines Nancy Pelosi.

    2. Trump is winning reelection and these RINOs trying to team up with Democrats just proves that.

      The more the MSM says Biden will win the more you know that Trump will win.

      The more the MSM says that Trump is doing bad, the more you know Trump is doing great.

      1. Are you predicting the red wave will deliver a Republican Senate and Republican House, too, you disaffected bigot?

        1. A red wave for Congress, or the red wave coming out of your vagina, you slack-jawed hicklib?

        3. LC is a decent guy. Not a filthy bigot like you. You and the rest of your rand progtard friends should be out down. Which is better than you deserve.

      2. Trump inspires two kinds of derangement, one among hysterical Democrats and the other among sycophantic Republicans.

      3. Sasse is trying to be the new McCain, the maverick. Nothing more than self serving attention grabber. Cornyn is the old republican establishment. Trump’s judicial nominees will do more to protect the Constitution than any republican or in the old days there were civil libertarian democrats. The benefits of his judiciary appointments will live on a lot longer than some offensive tweet or an executive order. That is a very good thing indeed for Libertarians.

    4. Now is not the time to mix metaphors. We can burn that bridge when we come to it.

  2. I watched the ACB confirmation hearings and thought Ben Sasse was great.

    1. He stands tall against the great scourge of white supremacy that is Burning Looting and Murdering our diversitopia.

    2. Great, except for the fact that he only finds his principles when his personal interests align with them. He’s great then. Otherwise, for example, he’s happy to be Trump’s lap dog when it serves his ambition.

  3. They’ll still be Senators, and afterwards lobbyists, with a great standard of living, even if Biden wins. They’ll survive. So what do they care?

  4. “Senate Republicans Sour on Trump as They Try To Save Their Majority”

    @reason provides little evidence to prove or show that point apart from some disliking Trump and other voting against him on an issue.

    It appears to be only a claim that @reason has made – so as to write an article that may be false ?

    1. As if Ben Sasse, a neocon nutter, is a paragon of probity.

    2. And the New York Times found a few suburban housewives in Texas who don’t like Trump, back when they were predicting O’Rourke would be their Senator by helpfully offering to confiscate their guns.

    3. They were devoted his whole term with nary a care and now are speaking out. That’s about as obvious as it gets really.

      One would hope voters aren’t that dumb but I never place bets on that.

  5. Ben Sasse is an asshole who has always hated Trump. To portray this as some kind of shift is a laughably bad lie.

    1. Do you jerk off when you imagine Trump winning?

      1. Why are you fantasizing about masturbation here? Are you gay or just looking for an anonymous squeeze. Tony is what you’re looking for in either case.

        1. If he is looking for Tony, god help him.

        2. Psst, look upthread.

        3. We found Toobins reason handle. Let him be.

      2. Jeffrey Toobin jerks off on Zoom calls.

        1. Is that what he was doing?
          All the news reports just mention his penis was exposed, like he accidentally forgot to wear his trousers or something.

          1. He had matters well in hand.

          2. It came out later (pun somewhat intended) that he was jerking off during the call. Added hilarity was that this was during a roleplaying session involving many of the New Yorker staff, as they were roleplaying being political figures, including members of the Trump Administration.

            1. Gray, you kind of always new that these media people wqere cut from a different cloth. But FFS, these people are just sick.

              1. I wonder sometimes whether someone like Nardz has a point.

                The media has definitely taken a side and, with apologies to George Carlin, it ain’t yours.

                1. Oh, I definitely have a point.
                  What the line is that calls for action on that point is the only question.

  8. It’s what we’ve said about RINOs all along they betray principle and party at the drop of a hat. Still better than the slime bag sewage of the democrats.

    1. Please! Trump is the RINO (Republican in name only). He has abandoned all fiscal discipline and threatened the future of this great nation. That is why I am voting for a return to sanity and disciplined federal spending by voting for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

      1. You are correct here. The real RINOs are Trump and the group that supports him. They have and will continue to sell Republican ideas down the river in support of Trump.

        1. Which ones are those, exactly?

          1. M4E has a hard time responding when s/he is called on bullsthit, as M4E is regularly.

      2. I agree, Trump is a RINO. Which is why I prefer Trump to the average Republican.

        1. He’s our best shot right now. If we find someone better who can get elected and have the guts to fight back against the massive forces of evil arrayed against the American people, then we can pick that person.

      3. Rabbi Toobin…do you want tohave your left or your right arm cut off? Either way you lose an arm. The spending spree under Nancy and Joe “I haven’t got a brain” Biden will have the Fed printing day and night…this is not going to end well..and if America really wanted a small limited federal govt Ron Paul would be finishing his second term and we would be in a much better place in our living standards and liberty..

        I’m taking bets Biden doesn’t make it to January 20th…he is gently removed from power over Christmas after his big win….

      4. lmao…. That is why I am voting for a return to sanity and disciplined federal spending by voting for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

        That’s a joke right?

        1. Considering the Republicans thought it just fine and dandy to pass tax cuts that cost 2 trillion (10% of the entire federal debt) and ballooned the deficit from 450 billion to over a trillion…..yes.

          I can’t believe anyone actually believes Republicans are at all the party of fiscal conservatism. Sure Dems want to spend more but they want to tax to do that. Republicans don’t gaf and just spend spend spend.

          I can’t believe people can be *that* dumb to believe Republicans. Seriously.

          1. I can’t believe people can be *that* dumb to believe NOT-STEALING is a $2T cost. Seriously. It’s soooooooooo *ssbackwards.

            The true backbone of the filthiest criminal through and through.

      5. Please name all fiscally conservative Republican presidents?
        That would mean they cut spending from their predecessor, and balanced the budget.
        I can tell you right now, there is not one. It is why we are $30 trillion in debt. It is why I became a libertarian. No politician today is going to voluntarily put this country through the pain it would take to straighten out the budget and start paying down debt. All we can do is wait for the total financial collapse of the United States to clean the slate and start over. Seeing next years budget will be greater than the GDP, it is not all that far off. How many years can the Federal government spend more the GPD and this country not have a financial collapse? My guess is not many.

      6. Seriously? If Trump is a RINO, then why do all the other RINOs hate his guts?

        Think next time you open your mouth.

        1. There is no “essence” of Republicanism. It has no stable ideology. Trump would have been a “RINO”

        2. (Damn no edit button)

          in 2003, and W. is considered a “RINO” in 2020, because neoconservatism was all the rage in the wake of 9/11 and quasi-paleoconservative Trumpism is hot right now.

    2. I dunno. Cornyn is pretty bad. As are most former A.G.s when doing something other than that role.

      He will still likely win. Which is why I had zero qualms voting for his Libertarian opponent instead.

  9. Oh these “conservative” Republicans, chomping at the bit to reach across the aisle again (bent over, ass lubed). Ask them why Obamacare is still alive. Ask them when we’re leaving Afghanistan or Korea or Germany or Japan or all the other places we shouldn’t be . Looks like Sasse wants us to invade China now. Makes no difference if the dems or reps are a majority, the dems get their policies in place and the reps just run for re-election. Repeal the 17th amendment, at least then they’ll have to answer to somebody.

    1. Cry more, clingers!

      But save some tears for November.

      And some more for January.

      1. Prove your authoritarian, warmongering ways more, racist bigot.

      2. just make sure you stock up on Kleenex for Nov 4th Rev, when the Senate is still Republican

        1. You have roughly a one-in-four prospect to keep the Senate.

          It could happen . . . but it would be a loser’s wager.

          1. And there might be enough slack-jawed, drooling ignoramuses to believe Biden’ bullshit claims to get him elected, asshole bigot.

      3. Your kind will destroy yourselves when you ramp up the civil war you started when a George Floyd died. You will force us to slaughter you in self defense. Not that a bunch of dead Marxist radicals is much of a loss.

        1. They started it long before George Floyd died

  10. I’ve seen too many what I call “manipulated” articles from @reason
    recently, including this one, that I no longer consider @reason
    reliable as I once did.
    @reasion seems to manipulate the facts so it can write the story it wants to.

    1. They are trying to become more mainstream.

  11. Now do dems complaining about Biden.

  12. The Dotard is politically toxic.

    Proof? The House landslide of 2018.

    That is just part one Peanuts.

    1. Is a five percent swing up for the D’s a landslide?

      1. Only shriek can look at the last several first term midterms and think that 2018 was a landslide, while also completely ignoring that the Dems lost two senate seats (which almost never happens).

      2. It’s all he’s got. Along with child rape videos. He’s also got child rape,videos.

    2. Happens usually in the first mid term. Obama lost a shit ton of democrat seats in 2010. So did Clinton in 1994.

      So they were politically toxic as well. Not that you would admit it you limp dick.

    3. yeah, Trump barely cracked 90-95% in the primaries. Republicans are fleeing.

    4. So you’re saying that the Red Waves that took back the House in 2010 and the Senate in 2012 prove that Obama was politically toxic?

    5. That’s the historical pattern. Has nothing to do with Trump, just look at all the other presidents that lost in the off year election, only to sail through re-election.

  13. Concern troll is concerned.

  14. Ben Sasse always hated Trump with a white-hot fury. How is this news?

  15. Sen. Ben Sasse (R–Nebr.), in comments leaked

    Unless Sasse himself leaked the comments, I’d suggest he wasn’t speaking out “sharply” against Trump. The idea that “the walls are closing in!” on Trump sounds more like Democratic election talking points than evidence the rats are fleeing the sinking ship.

    1. “Democratic election talking points”

      Are pretty much the entirety of Reason’s content these days

  16. This doesn’t mean anything.

    Democrats used to run against Obama, too. Democrats used to run against Pelosi.

    If they think the best way to keep control of the Senate is to bash Trump in their state, that’s what they should do–especially if it’s a state that’s likely to go for Trump, like Nebraska. Trump is ahead by six point across the state.

    Criticizing Trump won’t lose Trump the state’s electoral votes, and if it helps the Republicans keep that Senate seat, criticize Trump.

  17. Sen. Ben Sasse (R–Nebr.), in comments leaked to the Washington Examiner, described Trump as someone who “kisses dictators’ butts” and “sells out our allies.” Sasse went out to say that Trump “mocks evangelicals behind closed doors.

    Reasons to prefer Trump to Sasse.

  18. “There is only so much that words can do here. Both Cornyn and Sasse voted against bringing more witnesses to impeachment.”
    So the new kid thinks more Vindman’s would have brought down Trump. If young Sam had bothered to maybe actually follow the news in the last week, he might have discovered that Hunter Biden’s abandoned hard drives reveal that both he and Joe are thoroughly corrupt. He might also have realized neither Hunter, Joe or anyone connected to the Biden campaign has denied the authenticity of the emails in question. In fact another individual in the email chain not only confirms that the emails are legit he’s releasing a few thousand more. Some people might conclude that Trump investigating potential criminality on the part of a former VP might be a reasonable thing to do in which case the whole impeachment case falls apart. Why do you suppose the Democrats have conspicuously avoided the entire topic of their impeachment trial in this election? Mull that over Sam and let us know.

  19. Sasse is in the core demographic of Democrats: college president, Wall Street, Bush swamp creature. If it wasn’t for the Democrats’ militant atheism, he’d be a Democrat. Instead, he wants to turn the Republicans into carbon copies of the Democrats, but with more religion.

    Sasse still marginally better than the Democrats he’s running against, so I hope he’ll get reelected despite is deplorable conduct. Hopefully, he’ll be primaried next time, or maybe just have a sex or corruption scandal.

    1. Sasse doesn’t seem to understand that he was elected precisely because his party was sick and tired of neocon jobbing to Democrats, and wanted people with energy that would actually stand up to these turds.

      Nothing wrong with stating that Trump is an asshole, but he doesn’t get that his voters know that and don’t care, because that’s precisely why they like him.

  20. Neocons gotta neocon.

    1. Yep, and they hate Trump because Trump is bad for the War Business.

      1. That’s why Trump is good for libertarians.

  21. Trump has already lost the election because of COVID. He didn’t have to be a a dictator for mandatory lockdowns like Whitmer, but he could have at least come up with a plan, stayed off of Twitter, and shown some humility while quietly working to restore the economy. Instead, he made this about him , finally getting COVID himself along with most of his inner circle. I think that was the last straw. To those of you who want him to win-good luck? I actually look forward to no longer having him associated with the cause for limited government again.

    1. lol… Oh great; now a mans ability to catch a virus is the ‘last straw’ in a Presidential Election….

    2. You’re literally just reciting Biden talking points that don’t match reality.
      Plan?
      -stop travel from China, and eventually Europe; 15 days to slow the spread; ramped up testing and fast-tracked FDA approvals, looking for both treatments and vaccines.
      Stayed off Twitter?
      -yea, letting the MSM whip the country into a panic without any counterpoint would totes work; how dare Trump speak directly and go around the filter of your betters!
      Work to restore economy?
      -so… telling states they needed to open up… like he did… on Twitter.
      Getting covid himself?
      -proves he’s a sinner!
      “I actually look forward to no longer having him associated with the cause for limited government again”
      Go fuck yourself. The only solace I take in the prospect of a totalitarian takeover of this country is the knowledge that cowards like you will get your just desserts.

      1. Always nice to get shit thrown at me from the Trump fellaters. I hate progs as much as anyone-just saying that Trump comes across as incompetent now because of the COVID outbreak in the White House on top of everything else, and incompetence is the one thing voters will not forgive (see Jimmy Carter). I did not vote for Biden and am not looking forward to 4 years of a Harris presidency, but it could have been avoided if Trump showed even the slightest level of competence. He could have beat him in a landslide.

        1. Nick, you’re either a radical proggie/neocon who bows to Red China or a servile Trump bootlicker. Either the president is Literally Hitler or the Second Coming. PICK A SIDE.

        2. Don’t say stupid shit then.
          I’m not calling you a progressive, I’m saying you’re regurgitating idiotic Biden campaign talking points.
          Fellater?
          Seriously, go fuck yourself.
          You fucking goth kids sit here and parrot all the groupthink anti-Trump beats nonstop and recite your “both sides” mantra no matter the context, just so you can flatter your own ego by pretending to be above the fray.
          You’re not. You stand for nothing. You bitch for the sake of bitching.
          I like Trump. I don’t support everything he does, like most Trump supporters. But you pussies spend so much time shitting on Trump to social signal that you don’t leave anyone room for nuance.
          You are the incompetent one. I tebut all your points, and you can’t respond to anything but saying he “looks incompetent” for catching a highly contagious virus. A virus your thought-leaders have been assuring us all is super deadly that he beat in three days.
          Biden, on the other hand, you don’t think gets dinged for incompetence even though he stops campaigning at 9 am and shuts down for a week to prep for debates two weeks before election day.
          I get that media is biased, and you’ve proven you’ll fall for it hook, line, and sinker despite your “both sides!” faith.
          Thanks for the valuable insight that’s a carbon copy of concern troll bots internet wide.

    3. When Trump recovered from Covid, it showed that he’s stronger than the virus. Compare that to Biden, who spent the election timidly hiding from the virus in his basement.

      1. “When Trump recovered from Covid, it showed that he’s stronger than the virus.”

        Do you have any idea how idiotic and self-soothing this sounds to us normies?

        Did Herman Cain die from COVID because he was a girly man too weak to beat a puny virus? Did Lena Dunham, Alyssa Milano, and Harvey Weinstein survive COVID because they’re big and strong and virile like our fearless president?

        1. Herman Cain reportedly had co-morbidities. Milano, and Dunham are both relatively young. Weinstein survived by drinking the blood of child actors.

          And yes, Trump was literally stronger than the virus. So he lived, and thE virus is no longer within him.

    4. What a weak and spurious analysis.

    5. Instead, he made this about him , finally getting COVID himself along with most of his inner circle. I think that was the last straw.

      I think the last straw was he got COVID and survived. That was a big Fuck You to Science(tm).

  22. John Cornyn is such a fucking hack. I went to go see him speak once about a year ago. I have no doubt in my mind that dude would get down on all fours and suck a dick in national TV if he thought it would get himself reelected. Him pretending to suddenly have conservative principles about Trump is just about the biggest hoot I’ve heard all week. I didn’t vote for him this year specifically because of what a shameless toady he is. There is nothing he truly believes in beyond the next election poll, and I guess in that sense he and Donald Trump are two peas in a pod.

    I hope the Texas Republican party takes this as a wakeup call. Your democratic opponents here are SO BAD you could put a fucking dog, you could put fucking AIR BUD, on your ticket and win elections. No joke!

    1. Heger may give him a run for his money. Surprised the polls don’t have her doing better.

      Yah, I couldn’t vote for him either. Libertarian got my protest vote for Senator. Thank God I didn’t have to wait on the first day of early voting.

  23. Ships deserting a sinking rat.

    1. Lefty shits hoping for lefty shits for the win, lefty shit.

    2. BTW, it’s possible you might be a toad; it is not possible intelligence has anything to do with your existence.
      You are a fucking lefty ignoramus and have proven to be nothing else.
      Please make the world a better place, make your family and your dog happy: Fuck off and die

      1. So, should we be putting you on suicide watch or a terrorist watchlist after Trump gets his ass handed to him next month?

  24. RINO Sen. Ben Sasse (R–Nebr.) is, “a liability to the Republican Party”.

    Sen. John Cornyn (R–Texas) could be a Principled Republican

    The thing that’s REALLY blowing Trump’s base is the most recent siding with lefty-land policy — i.e. bailouts (commie-money) which ironically still isn’t going to produce a single Biden vote.

    Any other excuse for loss of support is by sheeple being led-around by “feelings” based entirely on far too much respect for social brown-nosing ability. Ironically Sasse’s attack of “kisses dictators’ butts” seems right up this alley in full-on projection of the base complaint.

    1. edit; “full-on projection” = “contradiction”

  27. Wouldn’t a better title have been–

    Nevertrump Senators Still Nevertrumpers ?

    Because that seems to be the entirety of this story.

  28. No, they just aren’t bringing him up because it doesn’t really have relevance to them selling themselves for their job.

    Except for Ben Sasse and Mitt Romney, who are just duplicitous snakes who think that they’ll get to lead the party by default in 2024.

  29. >>Cornyn described his relationship with Trump as an almost strained one.

    Cornyn is hurting *because* he abandoned T … he’ll win the seat but nobody cares about him anymore

    1. He needs to enjoy it while it lasts. I think there’s a decent chance he loses in ’26.

      1. I wouldn’t be surprised if he lost this one.

  30. Most of the RINOs were purged, but am I seriously supposed to believe that Rs are “turning” on Trump when these particular Rs were never with Trump to begin with?

    What’s next, you’re going to tell me Romney disagrees with him?

  31. Character? Look who’s talking.
    Mr. Politician, given the fact that all taxation is compulsory, do you have any evidence you have any voluntary support whatsoever?

  32. Out of all the Presidents we have had, which generation (which previous, most recent Prez) would had done better than the one we have today, and who did you wish had actually been elected that year?

  33. No surprise after Trump endorsed and even praised Ben Sasse and then the Senator from Nebraska turns around and stabs Trump in the back. That’s gratitude for ya! This goes to show which Republicans need to be primaried and kicked out since they have spines of jelly and won’t fight the Left nor do they want to win.

  34. Trump is the Republican Party. If Senators are voicing opposition to him then they likely have something to hide. Drain the swamp doesn’t just mean Democrats. In the final analysis, they all hate Trump for not being part of the establishment. They all hate him for doing what they couldn’t. And he’s doing it again. The early voting numbers are not what Biden fans were looking for. Not at all.

  35. They are just trying to put a little distance between themselves and the worst President in US history before Trump gets curb stomped by Biden.
