McConnell vs. Trump: Fracases of the Jackasses

Today I read a few articles on this moment's GOP rift, which is basically between the “stay in power by unethical/hypocritical means” group, led by the Prince of Darkness, Mitch McConnell; and the “WE WUZ ROBBED, FUCK YOU, JAN. 6 IS GREAT!” sect, led by that shitstain on American history, Donald Trump.

The former group sees a focus on Jan. 6 as counterproductive to the Midterms. The latter group wants a celebration of Jan. 6 and a vindication for its insane charge that the 2020 election was stolen. 

And that's the dilemma. They can't really win without Trump but Trump is pushing them toward arguments that won't help them win. Couldn't have happened to a nicer bunch of assholes. 

BTW, someone recently posted a clip of Hillary during one of the 2016 debates in which she listed off the number of times Trump claimed the game was rigged against him whenever he lost or was losing. And this was in 2016, mind you. Her examples include:

  • The Iowa caucus
  • The Wisconsin primary
  • The Trump U lawsuit
  • The Emmys

“This is a mindset,” she added. “This is how Donald thinks. And it's funny. But it's also really troubling.” 

She nailed it. She nailed him. Crazy what we could've had. Instead we've got crazy.
