Breaking from Trump in a symbolic and effective (no federal office) manner is the best thing for McConnell' GOP. Sure he was a useful idiot but, now he's useless, really do not believe Trump brings that much support, most especially after last week. He's just an annoying dumb horsefeathers now, one who'll say and do anything.

Republicans should be absolutely terrified right now that Trump is going to create a third party.

When that occurs it will be delicious watching many conservatives realize that Trump only ever used them and the Republican Party for his own vanity.

The best part of all this is that there will be no Trump tweet response to rile up his base. Just quiet, maybe a press briefing filtered through several somewhat less crazy people.

It'll be an adjustment, but everyone will start to get used to playing card games with Dominion suits instead of trump suits.

I'd be afraid of that too if I were them.

Of course, if Trump peels off that many people into his own party, then Democrats will secure majorities all over the map. Divided they'll fall.

So...it turns out that Trump actually is twice as good at something as Bill Clinton.

Trump is probably about to explode and he has no outlet like Twitter anymore to blow off steam haha

Edit: I see this was already mentioned. Oh well, it needs to be said twice

That's not a surprise, unfortunately.

I submitted a letter to the editor of our local paper today calling on him to resign. That's not the first time I've done so. I guess I'm old now?

You can occasionally find a good local candidate for certain positions. But the higher you go up the food chain, the horsefeathers they get.

It's really galling that FoxNews which helped in perpetuating the misinformation that fueled last week' events is now on the unity bandwagon. horsefeathers you FoxNews, horsefeathers you, and, by the way, there's a difference between unity and accountability.
