Trump calls Republican Senator who said election was fair a *Jerk*

Is there a crack in the wall? Are Republicans getting a conscience? Trump had endorsed Senator Rounds in 2020. Hope this is just the beginning.


Sen. Mike Rounds, R-S.D., hit back at Donald Trump on Monday after the former president issued an insult-laden statement blasting the senator for not supporting his baseless claims of a stolen election.

The back and forth began when Rounds told ABC News in an interview Sunday that the 2020 presidential election was "as fair as we have seen."

"As a part of our due diligence, we looked at over 60 different accusations made in multiple states. While there were some irregularities, there were none of the irregularities which would have risen to the point where they would have changed the vote outcome in a single state," Rounds said on "This Week."

The sooner everyone realizes we’re dealing with a crazy person, the better.

Yea, it's taking extra long for crazy people to realize they're dealing with a crazy person.

It's simply about retaining power.

If they think Trump can win in 24, then they will support him, even if he is in jail.

Same thing with the insurrection. If it had worked, they would have been behind it. 100%.

I don't know if this is the case for that senator, but it's going to be a tough needle to thread for Republicans running for highly contested seats (rather than for safe seats) for the House or Senate this year. They are going to have to assuage Trumpistas to win their primaries - which means sucking up to Trump. Then - if the seat is in anything near being a swing district or state - they will have to answer questions about whether they believe The Big Lie when running against a Democrat which could very well hurt their chances of winning.

There probably aren't a lot of seats like that and probably not a lot of voters who will be inclined to vote against the Republican because they support The Big Lie but it may be enough to blunt the scale of Republican victories this fall - and if we are really, really lucky, keep the House or Senate in Democratic hands. Most likely it won't make much of a difference but I'll enjoy watching those few Republicans running for highly contested seats squirm over it.

TFG’s calling him “a jerk” is just him saying, “He was mean to me.”

Contradiction, to a narcissist = meanness. Facts play no role because it’s never about facts, but blind loyalty. This dysfunction is unique to the Republican Party overall, and deletes their credibility.

Like a particular conservative candidate for many other reasons? If they have remained silent about TFG, you must ask yourself what else they are lying about. There’s no middle ground here, yet everyone but a handful cling to this. It WILL kill the party unless their blind attack for power succeeds temporarily.

"Jerk"

I'm just glad he didn't say "doody head." His vocabulary has progressed, and he has graduated to a third grader's level. Good for him.
