The thing that gets me about this isn't that Republicans are letting him off the hook, it's that they chose to destroy their own integrity by defending the most ignorant, immature, spiteful, petulant, graceless, short sighted president we've ever had.On this day , February 05 2020 - That raw feeling you might be feeling is the pitch of your stomach is the natural human reaction to our great nation being diminished. Our once proud and deliberative Senate will surrender it's coequal authorities over to the state - and to Trump. This is a dark day in American history.
I know people say "ignore his shitty personality", but the fact that there is nothing honorable or admirable about him, that he's completely devoid of any human qualities that one would aspire to makes it even more incomprehensible that he's manage to cultivate such loyalty and support.
He's just a big, raging ball of selfish & mean. I could understand them falling on their sword for almost any other Republican president, but this one is the exception to any rule of party politics.
It's not only baffling to me that Republicans voted for the worst person possible to be president, but to continue to defend the choice, to bow down the way they do - I will never understand it.
The video of his clownish behavior during the anthem at the Superbowl is one of the most bizarre things I've ever seen. It's not just that if a Democratic president did that the outrage would be palpable, but if a Republican president behaved that way there would be criticism from the right - but Trump? No expectations whatsoever of decency or respect.
"That's just the way he is" explains lack of interest in pressuring him to do better, but it doesn't even begin to cover the slobbering, self destructive, dog-like loyalty to him. And the worse he behaves, the more enthusiastic they become in their submission.
