A GOP consultant admitted defeat over being represented by President Donald Trump on MSNBC Sunday morning, saying the president’s antics makes Republicans look like idiots.
Appearing on AM Joy with host Joy Reid, strategist Christopher Metzler was put in the position of defending Trump after the president tweeted a doctored animated gif of him hitting a golf ball that smacks Hillary Clinton in the back and knocks her down.
“Chris, you’re a Republican strategist so I’m going to have to get you to explain,” Reid began. “Donald Trump is up early in the morning retweeting and tweeting out memes and gifs, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. Do Republicans at this point just tune it out? Do they just not care anymore?”
“Yeah, I think Republicans, in fact, do tune it out,” he admitted before addling, “They don’t actually care.”
He then got down to the crux of the matter for the party he works for.
“The problem is for Republicans,” he continued before wryly adding, “it starts to make us look like, oh, I don’t know, a band of idiots.”

‘You’re lying again’: Twitter fires back at Lindsey Graham’s claim that ‘Biden’s behavior was harmful to the United States’
In a series of tweets this Wednesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) gave his opinion that additional testimony in the impeachment effort against President Trump is "unnecessary," regardless of the leaked revelations from an unpublished manuscript of John Bolton's upcoming book. According to Graham, "one could assume everything attributable to John Bolton is accurate and still the House case would fall well below the standards to remove a president from office."
Graham then turned the focus of his thread to Joe Biden, writing that "there is ample evidence for the President to be concerned about conflicts of interest on behalf of Hunter Biden and that Vice President Joe Biden’s failure to take appropriate action was unacceptable."
