Trump Is blowing apart the Republican Party. God bless him

[bold]Excellent opinion piece by Thomas L. Friedman.[/bold]

When all the facts come out about the treasonous attack on the US Capitol inspired by President Donald Trump, impeaching him three times won't feel sufficient. Consider this Washington Post headline from Monday: "Video Shows Capitol Mob Dragging Police Officer Down Stairs. One Rioter Beat the Officer With a Pole Flying the US Flag."

That said, while I want Trump out — and I don't mind him being silenced at such a tense time — I'm not sure I want him permanently off Twitter and Facebook. There's important work that I need Trump to perform in his post-presidency, and I need him to have proper megaphones to do it. It's to blow apart this Republican Party.

My No.1 wish for America today is for this Republican Party to fracture, splitting off the principled Republicans from the unprincipled Republicans and Trump cultists.

And the Republican Party has been blowing Trump for years.

I totally agree. Even some of his hard core supporters in the community here seem to feel ashamed and deceived by him. ( I know, sigh) I think the momentum is gone and many wish things to return to normal. Too many are really hurting with job losses, lack of healthcare, covid . Then again, this could be wishful thinking on my part.

R2- Wrong thread, sorry!

by Anonymousreply 301/14/2021

And most of them are still blowing him and kissing his ass right now R1.

THAT'S why they're destroying themselves.

One side point: there's no such thing as an "excellent opinion piece by Tom Friedman". He's terrible.

by Anonymousreply 501/14/2021

Many only supported him because, for lack of a better word, peer pressure. The spouses, church members, ect., I feel long ago found him disgusting and destructive, disturbing.

He doesn't just need to be impeached and then convicted by the Senate. He needs to be prosecuted for treason.

Agreed R7.

by Anonymousreply 801/14/2021

Agree. They can not afford to allow him to go unpunished. Dangerous.

The GOP has been inventing a “Donald Trump” since the civil rights movement. But the monster got away from them. They’ve always been racist, but Trump is too vulgar about it.

I'll believe it when I see it.

by Anonymousreply 1101/14/2021

He makes George Wallace and Strom Thurmond look like gentlemen and scholars. It amazes me that he was upset at how trashy the people were who were trashing the Capitol. He's the trashiest thing I've ever seen - Archie Bunker without the empathy.

Yashar Ali:

The co-dependent relationship politically moderate white men over 50 have with Tom Friedman is something that should be studied by mental health experts.
