Why is it that the members of Congress that supported the coup

on January 6th are too stupid to see that if it had succeeded, Trump would have absolutely no use or need for any of them?

1. There's money involved. There's always money involved for republicans.

Republicans in congress know their post-politics career will include speaking tours, book tours, board directorships, maybe even a company to run. And donors will find ways to enrich their families as well.

The Republican Party itself might be not-for-profit, but everything about the way republicans actually function in practice is.

2. I don't understand why they are still

in Congress. Can you imagine if Democrats tried to stage a coup. They wanted to impeach Obama for wearing a tan suit.

3. The stupidity of it all is the fact

That they thought it was going to change things.

4. Power and coin

The currency of the realm. Besides, where would these jokers get a job if it wasn't Congress, a body that's become the home to scammers, jackals and born-again racists.

They've found their place in life; they're loathe to leave it.
