Rep. Jayapal

is saying on MSNBC that if she'd died, or if multiple members of congress had died, it would probably not make a difference to the repugs entrenched in drump's camp. Chris Cuomo made this point several times on CNN last night. He asked Don Lemon how many of them would have had to die to move repug votes. Lemon said it wouldn't matter how many died. Cuomo also said that this was the fulfillment of dump's boast that he could shoot somebody on 5th Ave., and it wouldn't matter to his followers. We'll have to see how the trial progresses, but I fear Jayapal, Cuomo, and Lemon are right. And if that's not a textbook example of a cult, I haven't seen one. "We believe in our guy so deeply that we'll overlook it if he commits murder." There's an exception, though. If Pelosi, Schiff, AOC, and Jayapal had died, they would have said they deserved it. If Hawley, Cruz, and McConnell had died--even Pence--maybe not so much.

And they don't care about that, or the officer who lost an eye and the other who lost 3 fingers-- both of them have presumably also lost their careers-- and the ones with concussions and other injuries. They don't care about them at all.

450,000 dead means nothing to them.

Power and money are the only things that matter to them.

hide the fact either that they show disdain for the American people, it's all about their "entitlement" bullshit on that.

Cruz, Hawley and the rest of that cabal need to be handed a blow.

It's our own money.

They act like everything comes out of their own pockets.

Yes Cruz and Hawley are part of the crime family.
And need to be taken down.

They have only disdain for the American public; it's one of the reasons why health care isn't a basic right in this country.

were systemically and did not care they were putting to death Black
and Brown people. They were quite not concerned who was dying.

he certainly knows his cult member.

He is the perfect cult-leader autocrat. Every utterance, every nuance, every gesture.

Playbook.
