fMSNBC host and former George W. Bush White House staffer Nicolle Wallace had some advice for Republicans: run away now.
The Monday panel discussion was over the Republican Senators being unwilling to stand up to President Donald Trump while he defies Article I of the Constitution. All officials take an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States against anyone “foreign and domestic” who might try to supersede it. Wallace anticipates this won’t end well for Republicans.
“This seems to me to be the off-ramp for anybody in the right-wing propaganda operation that says, ‘I’ve done enough. I’ve gone along with the lunacy around the wall. Now he’s doing something authoritarian in nature, usurping the power of Congress. I’ve done enough for this guy,'” Wallace said.
Trump has now managed to take lifelong Republicans and flipped what their ideology is all together. Meanwhile, former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe is accused of all sorts of lies. She noted if anyone else had done what McCabe was accused of doing, the conversations about “treason” would be everywhere.
“Now [Trump is] taking a lifelong Republican [McCabe], who if he had done any of the things Donald Trump accused him of doing, he would have been treated differently,” Wallace continued. “He’s out of work because he’s allegedly lied to the inspector general, not because of any of thinks conduct around the Russia question or Russia investigation. This seems to me if there’s anybody left with a conscience in the right-wing propaganda operation, this is your moment to get off the Titanic folks.”

Paul Krugman issues dire warning about next four months under Trump
In his column for the New York Times, Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman expressed dismay that -- even with coronavirus infection rates going through the roof across the country --Donald Trump is still acting like the health crisis is over and Americans should return to their normal lives.
Noting that Vice President Mike Pence recently penned an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal proclaiming, “There Isn’t a Coronavirus ‘Second Wave',” the columnist was gobsmacked by the Trump administration's "delusions and magical thinking that have marked every step of the Trump administration’s response to Covid-19."
‘Gaslighting on a massive scale’: Doctor warns Trump is lying us into a COVID disaster
On CNN Friday, Dr. Celine Grounder tore into President Donald Trump's ongoing falsehoods about the coronavirus pandemic.
"No matter how many times public health officials, especially like Anthony Fauci, speak the truth, what does it do, Doctor, when the president continues to lie to the public in face of a public health crisis?" asked anchor Kate Bolduan.
"This is gaslighting on an enormous scale, and means until people eventually get sick or their family members get sick, the communities hit hard, they won't believe it, and then it will be too late," said Grounder. "The problem is there's a lag period from the time that somebody's infected and starts to develop symptoms a couple days later. We don't see people get severely sick and need to be hospitalized and in ICUs until a week into disease, and talking about probably one to two weeks of lag time from the time somebody's exposed at least before you start to see hospitalizations and then another couple weeks before you start to see deaths."
Republicans ‘anxious’ as campaign aides observe ‘a sudden alertness’ in Trump that he is losing: report
Republican are growing increasingly worried about President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign, according to a new report in Politico.
“I’d say Republicans are feeling anxious, and there’s a real sense of urgency for the president to precisely define his second term agenda. What are we running on? His answers on that have been lacking and he needs to show people why he wants four more years,” Scott Jennings, a top political adviser in the George W. Bush White House, told the publication.
