Especially if he and his party lose badly. Who will show their hypocrisy and ditch their self respect again the fastest?
Who will be the first senior Republican to do a complete about turn disown Trump and slag him off if he loses in November?

If Trump loses, the Republican party is ruined. His base is holding onto him so tight that they will turn on anybody who says anything bad about him.

Everyone appropriately did it to Romney, so there's no reason to expect that it won't be the same with Trump.

As long as his rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth, QAnon-quack, repulsive base sacrifices their firstborns for Dump - all of the shameless GOP Congressmen will keep kissing his ass, hypocritically singing his praises and anointing him the next coming of baby Jesus. Depend on it. His loss will not change that fact either. Once the tide changes, they will ever so slowly change with it - but pretend to have the exact same stance even though video evidence will prove otherwise. Rethugs abandoned truth, science and facts 40 years ago.

Not him so much as the GOP base that slavishly worships him and can make sure any "turncoats" are primaried for their next election. A few, like Romney, can survive attacks. Most can't.
The GOP has been the party of the reactionary right for the last 50+ years, and the reactionaries have become more and more unhinged since the early 90s. And most every Republican politician is beholden to them, especially the crazies with lots of money (e.g. the Mercers).
This will not change after Trump is gone. The die hard GOP base has shrunk and mostly the inmates are left.

2024 is going to have a litmus test for the clown car candidates... were you with Trump or were you against him. The MAGAts will not support anyone who was against Trump. So the senior Republicans who stuck with Trump this far and want to run for President later (which appears to be all of them at this point) aren't going to disown him afterwards... they may say they disagreed with this or that, but the overall tone will be something like Trump wasn't treated fairly, yadda, yadda.

Rubio will be running in 2024 so any criticism will be, at best, mild.
My bet for king of the GOP clown car in 2024 is Tom Cotton. He's another bomb thrower (figuratively and, if he has his way, literally) who is well versed in the scorched earth tactics the GOP uses and will never give up.
He's the closest thing to another Trump-like candidate that could go the distance, and he is a very scary man. Unlike Trump, he isn't totally stupid. The deplorables will love him.

Our system of voting is a joke. The way power is distributed is a joke.
Twelve million more people voted for Dems than Reps for the senate in 2018, yet Reps control it. States with fewer people than a borough in NYC and have their hands out for money because they'd shrivel up and die, have power over the till and the country. Who in the hell are Republicans to ever get "angry" when they're the minority and mooching and someone like McConnell gets to control everything?

R38, the Republicans want to roll back every progressive gain our society has gotten since social security, Medicare, and the Civil Rights Act of 1964. They also want to prevent any new progressive legislation addressing climate change, income inequality, racial inequality, and so on.
That's why they continue to express such anger. As I said above, the GOP is the party of white right wing reactionaries.

I'd love to see a 2024 match-up between Kamala Harris and small-hands, water-bottle-grabbing, dry mouthed Rubio. I hope the Dems have enough sense to sprinkle the next 4years with all their Repug illegal scandals and the juicy tea that goes along with it. Unfortunately, I also believe they'd be stupid enough to "limit" the power of the President and Executive Orders WHILE Biden is President.
|by Anonymous||reply 44||08/22/2020|
I suspect Tom Cotton is a more likely 2024 nominee. He's a hawkish version of Trump, which will appeal to the base. GOP will want a white male figure (not a Latino like Rubio) to run against a Black woman if Biden decides one term is enough.
My fear is that Cotton could beat Harris easily just because of her gender and race. That's how fucked up this country still is.

Rubio, Graham and others could be disgraced or even behind bars in 2024. Don't forget, the SDNY might have ongoing investigations that connect a lot of these people. SDNY worked in tandem with Mueller. Look at Pence and his connections to those convicted. Presidential pardons wont help convictions at a state level.
