Truth be told I've always leaned a bit more Republican than Democrat in the past (pre-Trump).
Not that some of the top players in the Democratic Party are anything to write home about nowadays, but IMO the Republican Party of today isn't worth spit.
You've got your MTG's, your Grahams, your Cruzes, your Gaetzes, etc, etc, etc. It's a sad collection of spineless, kooky misfits who tend to open mouth before engaging brain.
Facts and findings will come from this, unfortunately though they will change zero minds of those who to this point have excused everything prior and make blanket victimhood for a grown man a profession. Cheers
Trumpers complaining of governmental abuse of power regarding the FBI raid.
Apparently suffering from short-term memory loss, having forgotten the coercing and strong-arming of elected state officials by Herr Trumpf to scrounge up more votes or just plain perform whatever shady maneuvers necessary to (cough) "stop the steal."
These damn double standards are a bitch.
This is the problem for the GOP. Twenty years of Fox daily hype/manufactured outrage/bullshit and you had a Republican base that were terrified of the way the world was going and wanted somebody to fight for them. Trump just hit the sweet spot perfectly. His election coincided with a nice burst of peace and prosperity that he got the credit for and his claims of a stolen election mean he isn't seen as a loser and unelectable by his base. His grip on the party and its voters is so strong that all senior GOP members including DeSantis are circling the wagons and defending him even before any of the facts come out.
This raid is a gift from god for DeSantis and the other 2024 hopefuls and not one of them has the balls to come out and say Trump might have done something illegal. You have Trump, his lawyers and then a variety of pols including senators today claiming that the FBI might have planted evidence and the guy who took the fifth today to every question today from investigators looking into various fraudulent schemes Trump was running in New York is the innocent party here being railroaded by the gestapo FBI.
None of these fuckers can beat Trump in the primaries without attacking him and nobody will. They're all terrified of becoming the next Mike Pence and being primaried by some MAGA goon and booted out of politics by Trump's voters. It's Trump's party until he says so and there's nothing any of them can do about it other than kiss the ring.
I'm no longer convinced Trump isn't a cartoon character.
