Prominent Republican explains how ‘cracks within the party’ are becoming exposed

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s behavior appears to be increasingly erratic and even self-destructive, and a growing number of people within his party have become willing to speak out against him.

On Monday, while appearing on MSNBC’s “The Beat,” former Republican National Committee Chair Michael Steele explained what these developments mean in response to a clip of three conservative figures — Anthony Scaramucci, Rep. Justin Amash, and former Rep. Joe Walsh — all sounding the alarm about Trump. They all claimed that many Republicans acknowledge behind closed doors that Trump is unfit for office.

“What these gentlemen are saying is something that all of us hear every day, in some form or another,” Steele said.

He continued: “What it reveals is a couple of things. One: Self-interest, for some people who may be trying to position themselves for other things.  But it also, I think, shows some cracks within the party itself. The numbers have begun to soften a little bit. Yes, the hard base — don’t get it too construed the wrong way — the hard base is still there. But that’s not the entire Republican Party! And you had a lot of Republicans, particularly Republican women, who supported this president in the last election who’ve now softened.”

To any halfway objective observer, the first day of public hearings in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, which are ongoing as of this writing, have not gone well for Trump’s defenders.

Bill Taylor, the top US ambassador in Kyiv, and veteran State Department official George Kent came off as principled and non-partisan as they delivered damning testimony about the Trump regime’s multifaceted campaign to coerce the Ukrainian government to announce an investigation into fringe right-wing conspiracy theories designed to deflect blame for interfering in the 2016 election from Russia and onto Ukraine.

Progressives hilariously ridicule Donald Trump Jr.’s new book with their own Trump triggers #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr

Published

on

President Donald Trump's eldest child and namesake has published a book about liberals he says are "triggered" by conservatives. Ironically, it seems Donald Trump Jr. is the one who seems to be triggered by the reception he's getting from some on his book tour.

The hashtag, #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr has nothing to do with Jr's new book, rather it's progressives using his book title to mock the Trump child. Internet users were torn between mocking the young Trump for desperately trying to get his father's attention, scrambling to seem relevant, trying to launch his own political career, trying to make his own money and so much more.

Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Rep. Devin Nunes of California and other House Republicans were clearly trying to rally the Trumpian base on Wednesday, when the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump offered its first public testimony. Jordan and Nunes aggressively tried to discredit the inquiry and the two witnesses who testified: diplomat William B. Taylor (U.S. ambassador to Ukraine) and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George P. Kent. But conservative Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin, in a Wednesday column, stressed that House Republicans — for all their “antics and conspiracy theories” — failed to show why Trump shouldn’t be impeached, while House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff and other House Democrats showed why he should.
