Chris Christie Wants the Post-Trump G.O.P. to Move Past Trump

Chris Christie wants to be very clear about something: The election of 2020 was not stolen.

“An election for president was held on November 3, 2020. Joe Biden won. Donald Trump did not,” Mr. Christie writes in his new book, “Republican Rescue: Saving the Party From Truth Deniers, Conspiracy Theorists, and the Dangerous Policies of Joe Biden.”

“That is the truth. Any claim to the contrary is untrue,” Mr. Christie says.

Donald Trump's power over the media ( right and left) will bury anyone who dares stand in his way. He will take advantage of a fractured and craven Democratic Party, sweep to win the election, and believe he has a mandate to demand a third term. He will attempt to install his dictatorship, even if force must be used.

You can obviously tell which Republicans are incredibly smart and know Trump is a moron, but use his influence to get his flying monkeys to follow them - like DeSantis.

Then you've got the complete morons who are true believers like MTG, Boebart, Cawthorn and Gosar.

The former scares me more. The ones who are smart enough to get the scariest aspects of the GOP platform to go through. They know there was no fraud, but they've used that hysteria to get these voter suppression laws passed. They are the same people who used 9/11 to get the Iraq war. They used a lie and the anger of hateful ignoramuses to get a war they had always wanted. Same situation here. Using the lie and the anger of hateful ignoramuses once again.

What I honestly wish more than anything else is that one of these people would have the guts to call out Trump's lack of intelligence when it comes to the very office he held. We all know the fucker couldn't even name who wrote the constitution, let alone what is in it.

It is psychotic that someone who couldn't pass a basic civics test became president. It's insane enough that we have a moron from AL as senator who didn't know what the three branches are, but a president who wouldn't know the constitution even if Madison used flash cards to explain it to him, is just frightening even now.

Republicans with any real common sense MUST realize that there are only two ways to win the coming Presidential election: 1) Cheat (if Trump is the nominee), or 2) get rid of Trump in favor of someone (anyone) else, who might have a chance at winning. The only hope that the second strategy can be tried is if enough of them, like this Gonzalez guy and Liz Cheney and Kinzinger, can create a swell of folks who will actually admit the truth, that Trump fucked them all over (and that he is, basically, a moronic psychopath). I'd hate to see them win an election, but the risk involved in letting Shitler run again is just too chilling for me, it could really spell the end of our government.

Christie is full of shit, and of course the GOP-stenographer press is helping him sell it.

[quote]Asked by CNN’s Dana Bash if he would support the former president should he lead the GOP ticket in 2024, Christie, a former White House adviser under Trump, would not give a firm answer. “Oh look, I don’t know that he’s going to run. I don’t know whether I’m going to run,” Christie told Bash during an interview for the episode “Being… Chris Christie,” part of CNN’s “Being…” series, which is set to air on Monday.

...

[quote]When Bash noted the likelihood of another Trump run, Christie still refused to give a firm answer on if he would support the former president. “He’s seriously considering it. Let's see what happens when he does. And let's see who he is and what he says and how he conducts himself,” Christie said. Pressed again on the question, Christie said, “I'm not gonna to sit here and 2021 and prejudge all this."

1. His grifting hurts their own donation grift bottom line. You think Trump is sharing his spoils with them? No way.

2. Him weaponizing his Deplorable army for his own benefit. They would love to have control over them to further intimidate (look like proper bullies who get whatever they want without compromise) Liberal representatives into submission or place them in a defensive position, but Trump will not his Deplorable army go. At least not without being sure he can't use them any longer (no longer willing to go to prison for him or buy his merchandise) and not without getting paid handsomely (after all they are just a valuable asset to him that can be bought on the cheap and sold with a huge profit).

Hah r100 they are stupid because they got check mated. They got Trumped, so to speak.

Cristine is the smart one here. He saw the data that an ever so small number of republicans are ready to move on. I’ve seen it in real life. It’s just in the last few weeks really. I bet that Cristine wrote that book within less than a month. He saw the data and jumped first.

Christie is extremely intelligent on many levels. He could totally win in 2024. A lot can change but the first man out has an advantage. He is built into every other election conversation from here on out. Free publicity.

Don’t count him out. Voters have short memories.

[quote] You really believe trump would want Speaker?

I think Trump would want the Speaker job, he wants to impeach Biden, even though there won't be the votes to convict, but Trump is all about revenge. Trump also is unhappy with McCarthy during the Jan 6th insurrection when McCarthy said to Trump on the phone, "Who the fuck do you think you are talking to" screwing McCarthy out of the one thing he wants most would be sweat revenge for Trump. Trump could always get someone else to do the every day grind of Speaker but he would love to sit up there and swing the gavel and impeach Biden, hell he would probably try and impeach Obama too.

You actually have to do some work as Speaker, you can’t sit around and watch TV all day. Trump wouldn’t last a month.

Well, the fear some have is that, if Republicans win both the House and Senate, McCarthy would make Trump speaker, then they would impeach and remove both Biden and Harris, which would automatically make Trump president again. Sounds crazy, yes, but the thought is out there.

by Anonymousreply 118November 18, 2021 3:02 AM

To remove Biden the Republicans would need to hold 67 Senate seats and all of them would have to vote to convict, that was the problem with impeaching Trump, you can't get enough votes to do it.

BTW, R118 it isn't in McCarthy's power to make anyone Speaker, the Speaker is elected by a majority of the members of the House, Trump could get elected Speaker without being a member of the house, but McCarthy doesn't have the power to appoint anyone speaker.

I agree he is a lazy POS that would kick his turds out of the bed littered with KFC buckets and McRib wrappers because he's a lazy shithead. But yes, he wanted to be President and he ABSOLUTELY would be Speaker of the House because of the title and the power. It's not about the job or how much work is involved. Did you learn nothing of 2016-2020????

Nah, I don’t think Dump would want to be speaker. As others have pointed out, it involves work, and furthermore, as speaker, he’s not top banana. He’d have to mingle with the other congresspeople too. But he’d love to watch a Republican House impeach Biden. It would be on his tv 24-7.

But call me an optimist in that I think they wouldn’t. First of all, they won’t catch Biden doing shit like Dump did with Ukraine and Jan. 6. Second of all, I’m convince that half the party actually hates Dump because he has a stranglehold on them. But they have to pretend to support him.

Cheatolini would ABSOLUTELY want to be the Speaker of the House — for a hot second so he could preside over Biden’s impeachment. And, yes, the Repukes would be more than happy to follow the orange idiot over that cliff and impeach Biden on some flimsy pretext, just because tRump wants it to happen and as payback for the two Drumpf impeachments. No, the Senate wouldn’t convict him. But the Rethugs don’t care. They just want to embarrass Joe.

And tRump would ditch the job just as quickly to run for President again.

They are all trying to have their cake and eat it too. (In Kristie Kreme’s case a LOT of cake.) They want the tRump voters without having tRump anywhere near them. But, if questioned about supporting Cheatolini in 2024, they weasel their way into some mushy acquiesce to the Orange Blob.

And don’t be fooled that any one of these clowns would be much better than tRump. They all have the same goals of filling the federal courts with reach-wingers, cutting taxes for the wealthiest, and dismantling the government and any regulations on businesses. Oh, and turning back any progress on women’s rights and civil rights.
