Appearing on MSNBC early Sunday morning, a former adviser to President George W. Bush claimed Donald Trump's threat to form a third party is actually aimed at keeping Republicans under his control as he builds a permanent Trumpist wing within the party.
Speaking with host Kendis Gibson, John Farner said that Trump wants to continue building his "dangerous" cult of personality.
"You had Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) on earlier, and one of her comments that I really enjoyed was the fact that Donald Trump's biggest threat is anonymity -- going off in the silence," Farner began. "That's what he's afraid of. He needs the Republican Party in order to gain his followers. He doesn't have his bully pulpit on Twitter anymore."
"He needs to get involved in the primaries to get his name and face out there, his message out there, in order to drive up more of his cult of personality," he added. "And it's -- he's building his own party within the Republican wing: Trumpism, the cult of personality, whatever you want to call it. It's dangerous to democracy and we encourage the Republican Party to go back to its roots to follow leaders like [Rep.] Liz Cheney (R-WY) standing up to bullies like Donald Trump and looking out for the future of America."
GOP lawmakers under pressure to impeach Trump after donors cut them off following Capitol assault: report

The reason: They have been cut off by large corporate donors following the storming of the Capitol on the day the Senate went about their duty to certify the election on Jan 6th.
DeVos was terrible at her job and knew nothing about public schools. That was exactly what the far right wanted
Even Betsy DeVos — one of the longest-serving of Donald Trump's revolving-door cabinet secretaries — finally reached what she called an "inflection point" with the former president's open call for violent insurrection, resigning slightly before he left office. Amid the chaotic Trump administration, DeVos was in many ways the perfect choice for education secretary. She showed an astounding lack of knowledge about public education. She seemed at best uninterested and at worst downright hostile to America's public schools.
