The following are paragraphs from an article by Michael Warren of CNN called “State Republicans continue to break with Trump, while those in Congress remain silent.”
“Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan (of Georgia), a young, ambitious Republican, told CNN’s Jake Tapper Sunday that ‘mountains of misinformation’ from allies of President Donald Trump alleging large-scale voter fraud in the presidential election were hurting GOP efforts in the runoff elections for US Senate. Hours later one of those Republican senators, Kelly Loeffler, continued to offer lip service to Trump’s baseless claims…
The contrast illustrates a growing rift inside the Republican Party, between those who are willing to call out Trump on his baseless attempts to overturn the election results, and those who aren’t. It’s been state officials — governors, lieutenant governors, and secretaries of state — who have been the most outspoken, not only in acknowledging Biden’s victory, but also in pointing out the damage Trump’s false narrative is doing.
Meanwhile, Republicans in Congress, typically among the standard-bearers of the party, have largely been silent, save for a few exceptions. And it’s unclear whether those on Capitol Hill are going along with Trump for short-term political reasons or because they actually agree with him.
The above speaks for itself. Today, two more court cases put forth by Trump or his supporters were thrown out in Michigan and Georgia. By my count that puts the Trump campaign at 1 win and 49 losses in court. That is a 2% winning percentage. I know the outgoing president mocks polls, but this judicial poll show him losing 98% of the time.
Sadly, armed Trump supporters have been picketing in Michigan around the Secretary of State’s House. This is on top of the death threats. Someone will get hurt and take it to the bank, the unaccountable person in the White House will absolve himself of fault.
To the silent Republican Senators and Congress people in Washington, it is now time to serve your country. Join me in the following admonition – Man-up Mr. Trump, you lost.
