Lindsey Graham admits that Trump could "destroy" GOP after he sent the RNC a cease-and-desist letter. The Senator continued to describe the former President along the lines of the duality of man. Trump, he said, has both a "dark side" and some "magic" in him. "What I'm trying to do is just harness the magic." Trump rose up on his stump and shouted, "So girly man think he can control Demon Trump? Trump crush!"

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has criticized Trump in the past several weeks, but said that he would ultimately support the former President's potential bid in 2024. "What else can we do? This hellspawn will have us all in its gullet if we do not capitulate to its demands", McConnell explained. "Romney's safe because he is coated in Mormon saliva which the demon cannot digest. It views the rest of us as delicious turtle soup."

Former President Donald Trump issued a statement Wednesday on presidential letterhead: “Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America: I hope that everyone remembers when they’re getting the COVID-19 (often referred to as the China Virus) Vaccine, that if I wasn’t president, you wouldn’t be getting that beautiful ‘shot’ for 5 years, at best, and probably wouldn’t be getting it at all. I hope everyone remembers!”
Trump's lying never stops.

The Qanons and Trumpaholics believed Trump was supposed to take back the White House on January 6. Then it was January 20th, Then it was March 4th. Then it was March 20th.

When does it start sinking in?

It will never sink in. They'll form a religion around Trump's "rightful" claim to power before they see reality.

We went up to our home in Idaho last week and saw about 10 Trump flags flying, Trump 2024. Of course there was one they were too cheap to buy a new flag and had painted 24 over the 20.

The Trump admin awarded a firm up to $1.3 billion to make Covid vaccine syringes. Where are they?

And yet, the his followers march on. Hoping that the continuing investigations will land some Trumpians in prison. Hoping, not holding my breath, Trump will face legal consequences and loss of freedom. It would be nice to see "justice for all" include the wealthy and powerful.

I'd so hoped by now that Trump would be a disastrous memory from the past. Sadly it's not to be. Not much surprised me any more, but the number of supporters, either out in the open or hiding in silence, amazes me. Sigh.

That's an interesting piece of data. I guess I shouldn't assume, so will check facts and verify, but i have seen a clear trend that anti-vaxxers trend to be Trump supporters, and also seem to be the people most likely to get sick, and most likely to die, based on my small observational sample size.

I'm not sure why avoiding a vaccine has become a right wing thing. Not sure why a lack of interest in following the science became a conservative thing. I saw some research recently showing that people who tend towards conspiracy theories have lower abilities in areas of critical and divergent thinking.

Trump is suing to keep information about his involvement in the January 6th insurrection secret.

Trump claims George Washington and Abe Lincoln could not have beaten him... delusional narcissism on display.

Trump lost because Biden had more voters.
I can tell you have a very mechanical mind.

But aside from the mechanics there is the spirit as well.

After fomenting the January 6th insurrection, Trump has been searching for a way to set a new low.
