Conservative Bulwark writer-at-large Tim Miller on Monday was shocked that Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) and interim Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) will be holding a rally with Donald Trump the day after he was caught on tape asking Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to fabricate election results to help Republicans steal an election they lost.

If Trump wants Kelly to try to silence the players on her basketball team for speaking up for racial justice, Kelly will try to silence them. If Trump tells them to come on stage and sing 'It's Raining Men' in their undergarments while carrying a Trump Hotels Classic Stick Umbrella, they will ask what color panties he prefers," Miller argued.
"They believe in nothing but whatever Trump and his supporters tell them to believe. And they want your vote," he concluded.
