Disgusted in private? So much for the courage of their convictions.

Repugs Are Disgusted By Orange Lard Barge's Behavior

Bullsheht!

They were disgusted by 44's Complection.

They are fine with 45's behavior. All they see or value are tax cuts and Court packing with ideologue zealots, and of course, pissing off liberuhls. They have embraced and defended his behavior.

Trump isn't losing a single Republican vote.

Expecting Republicans to wake up and smell the orange stench is foolishly delusional.

I suspect we will all be surprised by the actual senate vote.

I'll be surprised if it doesn't go exactly as expected.

What we've been watching for the past three years is only a mild lead-up to an even worse sequel if Trump gets vindicated by the Senate. I dread to even think of the endless nightmares this country will suffer.

Sound the alarms - a Never Trump GOP put out to pasture is ....shockingly....still Never Trump! This is truly newsworthy.

I used to buy into the "disgusted in private" aspect of Republican support for Pres Trump.

Nowadays, I am not so sure.

I have difficulty coming to a conclusion that a person would be so willing to sell their soul and conscience in the manner specified here to support someone like Pres Trump. The Republicans have been holding their positions for so long, I now have difficulty buying that they really believe something besides how they are acting.

As a result, my current opinion is moving towards the Republicans know exactly who and what they are supporting, publicly and privately.

I truly hope I am wrong with this opinion.

@#7 ... a Never Trump GOP put out to pasture is ....shockingly....still Never Trump! This is truly newsworthy. ...

While I won't buy into the "never Trumper" aspect, I am not surprised that someone who had been opposed politically to Pres Trump is still opposed politically to Pres Trump. That is a sign of having a conscience.

On the other hand, there is someone who has said...

"He's a race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot. He doesn't represent my party. He doesn't represent the values that the men and women in uniform are fighting for, I think he's a kook. I think he's crazy. I think he's unfit for office."

That person is now a best buds golfing buddy with Pres Trump, even though I am of the opinion that his view of Donald Trump is spot on, when it was given and now. (again, based upon what I've seen of, and the opinion I formed of, citizen Trump in the 1980's and 1990's).

So which of the two politicians has more of a conscience, the one who abides by his convictions, or the one who switched from criticisms to checking Pres Trump for polyps? Which of the two politicians would you want to represent you?

Wasn't Pres Trump put into office to "drain the swamp" of the ----------- politicians?

The person that said this is a complete political turd that should have been flushed a long time ago. Linday's fake macho, bravado and "support" for the troops is simply trying to mask sexual identity. I am sure that Lindsay's mom still thinks he is just waiting for the right woman but the whole rest of the world knows the truth.

Lindsay is the type of ---------- that Trump is forced to work with to implement his policies despite these people being the exact kind of person that Trump supporters voted against in voting for Trump. Lindsay has a long track record of accomplishing NOTHING but trying to spark forever war in the Middle East. Unfortunately, he is not the only one in the party - Paul Ryan, Cheney, Romney, the Bush dullards are all of the same ilk. Just because they have an R after their names doesn't mean I support them - that is what makes me different from the Democrats.

But... but... but...

While I may or may not agree with your opinion of Sen Graham....

He is Pres Trump's best golfing bud nowadays.

Pres Trump was supposed to drain Washington, D.C. of the, as you say, complete political turd[s].

Yet Pres Trump enjoys a golf game with and embraces Sen Graham.

What's up with that?

Simple ~~ Trump needs Graham and Graham needs Trump.

Although Graham's motives might be much darker, what I see on the surface is his hope for a nice juicy cabinet position in Trump's second term.

I'm assuming you mean in charge of Trump's cabinets in Marlargo while Trump is serving his second term in prison.

How is that?

You are no different. We are all Americans.

Seems some of you have forgotten that.

You are only fooling yourself.

Does the name "Al Franken" ring any bells?

I can come up with plenty of Democrats who have been thrown under the bus.

So I guess that makes you a liar again!

Try telling your story without lying for once.

That would be different.

If NY21 Rep Stefanik is so virtuous about insisting that public officers should forbid their adult kids from working for "corrupt companies" then she just made a great case for Trump's kids to quit: www.emptywheel.net
