Serious question What are Congressional Republicans saying about this?

Any reports about Reporters reaching out to Moscow Mitch or the others? Any reports of GOP members reaching out to reporters to speak against Trump and in favor of our troops? No?

This should be reported on. If GOP remains silent maybe the share Trump's view on our men and women in uniform. Maybe vote gets or Biden or Lincoln Project should do a commercial about the silence-- Hell call it silence

* Susan Collins will be "concerned."

* John Kennedy will spout his idiotic hayseed aphorisms.

* Lamar Alexander will wear a plaid shirt and remain a completely useless dotard.

* Ted Cruz will....God knows what Ted will do, since he let the Fat Slob accuse his father of assassination of JFK and call his wife ugly (Ted is actually the really ugly one in the family and is a rabid supporter).

* Lyin' Leningrad Lindsey Graham will not remove his lips from the Fat Slob's rump, and will therefore be unable to comment.

* Moscow Mitch McConnell will, well, ya' know, be Moscow Mitch.
