There is an awful lot of desperation to keep Trump in the WH.


Aside from the obvious power loss for the GOP, there is possibly much more at stake.

I believe that a lot of people will fall without the Trump administration to protect against investigations.

I believe that a lot of scandals will drop soon after Trump's removal from office.

4. I'm not sure there's anything there.

I think they do this stuff out of their own self-interest and greed. Everyone seems to assume that someone has something on them for them to act this way, but I think they're mostly just soulless, power-hungry assholes.

9. repukes in general are selfish, greedy assholes, yes

17. Yeah, McCain died.

He needed a new hero. I'm not sure it's any more complicated than that.

Could be something else, certainly, but I think he morphs to whatever his "hero" wants, whether it's McCain or Trump. Trump wasn't going to accept him unless he did and said exactly what Trump wanted. I think he's so desperate to have that relationship that he did whatever it took. Of course, Trump trashed him anyway, but a lot of abusive relationships work in a similar fashion.

18. This is the same Lindsey Graham crying, begging for election money?

What is going on with these people? And where did the windfall come from, Senator Graham???

10. Damn right. And I want to see it in an actual theater!

At my age (over 70) I have a shorter fuse for gratification, so hurry up with those indictments, investigations, perp walks, and actual prison terms! And the movie! Dammit.

5. I just hope a bunch of innocent Americans don't have to die

over Trump's dangerous deceit tonight.

I think he's killed enough people with Covid.

13. Make no mistake, they will eagerly abandon Trump.

Most don't like him, they are just afraid of him and the zealots. Once Trump loses power, they will slowly start pretending they never really supported him.

14. +1000

I believe this as well. Once he is out of power, they will turn on him like lightening. I actually think his base will fade away as well.

16. Yep...

That's why reasoning with most Trump supporters seemed to almost never work. They weren't blind to Trump's vileness.

When Trump's supporters are compared to Nazis, it's not an exaggeration. The problem is that people think that Nazis were some type of different breed of human, when they were regular people just like you and I. Once you start trading ethics for power, you can go down some very dark paths.
