Even Trump-backing Republicans are bracing for a massive loss — and it’s only August

Published

on

Normally, you don’t start to see elected officials admitting that their presidential candidate is toast until late September or early October.

This year, it’s happening in August.

The Hill has done some interviews with several Congressional Republicans who all say that Hillary Clinton is very likely to win the presidential election in November.

“I think it will be Hillary,” admitted one House GOP lawmaker who has endorsed Trump.

“If he continues the next 90 days like the last week, then he will lose big time,” said another Trump-backing GOP lawmaker.

Of course, if even Trump’s supporters are admitting that Trump looks doomed, you can only imagine how the Republicans who are still opposed to his candidacy are feeling.

“This is like a football game where you hate both teams,” one anti-Trump Republican told The Hill. “You root for a tie — and maybe some minor injuries.”

That said, some anti-Trump Republicans are hoping that a Trump loss will actually force the party to reexamine itself and implement needed reforms.

“Another autopsy will occur and the next time I hope lessons will be learned,” Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.) told The Hill.

Stephen Colbert rips ‘idiot’ GOP senator for defending Trump’s unconstitutional self-dealing

Published

"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert returned from New Zealand for a new show that aired Monday evening.

"I have been as far from the insatiable black hole of news that is Donald Trump as you can get on this planet.

I've heard there have been some developments over the last 10 days that did not go well for Donnie,"

The host ripped Trump's 71-minute press conference.

"Seventy-one minutes is not a press conference, it's a one man show," he explained. "If you liked 'Fleabag,' you'll love Donald Trump in 'Douchebag,'" he said.

Texas Republicans are abandoning the state’s GOP Speaker: ‘We no longer support him’

Published

on

Some of the most powerful Texas House Republicans said Monday they no longer support GOP Speaker Dennis Bonnen, marking the biggest blow yet to his political future amid the fallout from a secret recording released last week by a hardline conservative activist.

Five Republicans considered senior members of the lower chamber issued a statement withdrawing support for him: State Reps. Four Price of Amarillo, Dan Huberty of Houston, Lyle Larson of San Antonio, Chris Paddie of Marshall and John Frullo of Lubbock.

Donald Trump is making a mockery of Marco Rubio — and the Florida senator is letting him

Published

on

Sen. Marco Rubio was once one of Donald Trump’s most formidable opponents; now, the Florida senator bends over backward to excuse the president’s corruption.

In 2016, Rubio and Trump sparred frequently on the Republican primary debate stage. Trump picked the uninspired nickname “Little Marco” for the senator, which didn’t seem to do much damage on its own, but Rubio never gained the momentum or strength that his backers hoped would prove to be strong enough to take down the reality TV candidate. As Rubio grew desperate, he launched one of his most memorable and pitiful attacks by stooping to his opponent’s level, implying that Trump had a small penis. It was more of an embarrassing moment for Rubio than anyone else, though Trump helped himself with a crude rejoinder.
