Former GOP strategist Rick Wilson mocked Senate Majority Mitch McConnell’s efforts to keep Republican senators in line.
The ex-Republican compared the GOP majority’s attempt to cover for President Donald Trump to a weekend bender gone horribly wrong.
“On Friday night, it’s a lot of fun and you’re having a great time,” Wilson said. “On Saturday, you’re starting to feel it, and on Sunday there’s a dead hooker in the trunk.”
Wilson said the majority leader was tossing campaign cash to wobbly senators to ensure their loyalty to the president, but he said that scheme wouldn’t work forever — and might doom everyone who takes part in it.
“They’ve gotten to a point where they realize he will do everything to calm them into letting them be the enablers,” Wilson said. “It’s like bankrupting casinos. This guy is going to do everything he can to use them and blame them. If they don’t have a revelation, if they don’t have a moment where they go, ‘I better step away from the table, I have to stop drinking, I’ve to end this before they get out of hand,’ they’re going to go down in history with a stain on them. They’re going to be the ones who are unemployable in the future.”
“If you get Sue Collins and she’s going to have to be a community college teacher at Aroostook Community College in Maine and live in the witness protection program, she’s going to be so ashamed by the time this is over,” he added. “But if they don’t have a moment where they summon some courage, they’re going to go down.”
Trump swamped with mockery for postponing his New Hampshire rally over ‘weather’: ‘Afraid of low turnout again? Sad’
Donald Trump took to Twitter to explain that he has postponed his rally in New Hampshire on Saturday due to bad weather. Reports in that the area show that the weather would be fine by the time the campaign event was scheduled to begin.
According to the president, whose last weather-related controversy ended with him using a Sharpie to alter an official National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration map, "With Tropical Storm Fay heading towards the Great State of New Hampshire this weekend, we are forced to reschedule our Portsmouth, New Hampshire Rally at the Portsmouth International Airport at Pease. Stay safe, we will be there soon! #MAGA2020."
Top Dem attorney mocks GOP chair after her ‘lie’ claiming ‘victory’ in mail-in vote case: ‘You dismissed your lawsuit’

Um, I don’t know how to break this to you…but you actually dismissed your lawsuit. 🙄
‘Mad King Trump’ is ignoring the COVID-19 crisis and ‘a lot more Americans are going to die’: Paul Krugman
In an uncharacteristically blunt column for the New York Times, Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman declared President Trump "Mad King Donald" and said his refusal to take the coronavirus pandemic seriously will only lead to more needless deaths for at least the next six months.
Admitting that he feels like Americans, including himself, are trapped on the Titanic he described the president as "a madman who insists on steering straight for the iceberg" and those around him as being too fearful to take the wheel and avert disaster.
