I’m continually amazed by how many prominent Republicans keep demanding that the party support Trump. They’re like junior officers on the Titanic insisting that the ship can be saved so long as no one uses any of the lifeboats.
Remember when Trump went around telling Republicans that even if they didn’t like him, they had no choice but to vote for him? “If you really like Donald Trump, that’s great,” he said. “But if you don’t, you have to vote for me anyway. You know why? Supreme Court judges, Supreme Court judges. Have no choice, sorry, sorry, sorry. You have no choice.”
Well, if that’s true, then why isn’t the converse also true? Why won’t Trump die-hards have no choice but to pull the lever for a Senate Republican who disavows Trump? After all, Trump supporters have an important, controversial piece of legislation that Trump can’t get passed with a Democratic Senate.
Even if you don’t like Republican Senator X, you have to vote for him anyway. You know why? The Wall. Have no choice, sorry, sorry, sorry. The Wall.
If you really want to stop Hillary Clinton’s agenda, you start by understanding the world as it is. You can continue throwing good money after bad. Or you can try to save some Senate seats and do everything in your power to hold the House.
