President Trump has lost more support from the Republican Establishment over the past two days than he has cumulatively over the past four years. The dissent that once trickled out in blind quotes and quiet hand-wringing now pours forth in a torrent. Cabinet members Betsy DeVos and Elaine Chao have resigned, Steve Mnuchin and Mike Pompeo reportedly discussed invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump, and even as docile a figure as Kevin McCarthy reportedly had a “screaming match” with the president over his refusal to condemn the insurrection....
Why Republicans Are Finally Trying to Wash Off the Trump Stink

Republicans are going to have to do a LOT of washing and they are going to have to do it for a LONG, LONG time.
This is 100% their fault.

Nobody is forgetting this or the main actors.

Oh, some of them were scared for a moment. But most Republicans nationwide, after skipping a beat, have gone right back to promoting the lie that Biden stole the election from Trump, who still claims that he won it by a landslide. And as far as I'm aware, the Pentagon and the DoD have still not opened up to Biden's team. There's more to come.
In the second pilot to the original 𝑆𝑡𝑎𝑟 𝑇𝑟𝑒𝑘, '𝑊ℎ𝑒𝑟𝑒 𝑁𝑜 𝑀𝑎𝑛 𝐻𝑎𝑠 𝐺𝑜𝑛𝑒 𝐵𝑒𝑓𝑜𝑟𝑒,' Kirk fights for his life against megalomaniacal Gary Mitchell, once a human and a friend to Kirk, but now endowed with 'absolute power, corrupting absolutely.' In a fist fight, Kirk momentarily gains the advantage over Mitchell, knocks the light out of his eyes, gets him down on the ground, and raises a stone, presumably to crush his head. But at the critical moment, Kirk chokes up, and pauses.
𝐊𝐢𝐫𝐤: Forgive me, Gary.
(The glow returns to Mitchell's eyes. He seizes Kirk's arms.)
𝐌𝐢𝐭𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐥: For a moment, James. But your moment is fading.
Gary Mitchell backhands Kirk so hard he flips, and then hoists a tremendous rock over his head.
Deplorables, QAnoners, and most Republicans are not repentant. Our moment is fading, and they're preparing to do something worse. And we've got people like Jim Clyburn, arguing for conciliation, to postpone hearings until 100 days into Biden's term, wanting to just 'turn the page.'

All about money Republican voters will forget all about this in about a month and go back to their closet racism and undying list for money and fake Christianity.
You know Republican politicians are already thinking, “OK how much longer do we have to act like we care about this shit?”
They are never ever to be trusted.

The Republicans had the rights to the Patriotism thing, flag-waving, don't tread on me freedom lovers, the party of Jesus, law and order, get your government off my lawn thing. Now they have images of a kooky shaman, battering the skull of a policeman in with repeated blows of a fire extinguisher, shit and piss covered walls, gallows erected at the base of the Capitol steps, serious firearms, bear repellent used on cops, and mobs of blood-thirsty hick scum (unemployed, unsuccessful lifestyle influencers, living with their moms, dependent on unemployment checks and handouts.)
They showed just how immaculate and proper and conservative their high road is. Let the images haunt the fuckers for a lifetime or two.
