As Sargent explains, Bannon informed Boston Republicans that his newest dream is for Trump to win a Home seat in 2022 as a part of the GOP reclaiming of the bulk. Trump could be a shoo-in for speaker, Bannon insists. However that’s solely the start of the plan, because the Boston Herald first reported:
“We completely eliminate Nancy Pelosi, and the primary act of President Trump as speaker will probably be to question Joe Biden for his illegitimate actions of stealing the presidency,” Bannon stated, resulting in applause and hollers from the Boston Republicans.
Okay? And the proof that Biden stole the election is what precisely?
(Oh, Aldous, you naïf. These are Republicans! They don’t want proof! Pfft.) Again to Sargent.
That is rank crackpottery, however right here once more, the singular organizing and motivating precept is the concept Trump’s loss to Biden couldn’t probably have been reputable, or that there’s merely zero obligation on the a part of the Trump motion to acknowledge it as such, and that loyalty to Trump requires unwavering fealty to that concept.
That is unsurprising, in fact. Trumpites have been unable to overturn Joe Biden’s reputable election win with a violent coup, so now they’re hoping to fill the Home chamber with characters much more deluded and unruly than the Q Shaman. (I doubt Trump would ever put on Viking horns and animal pelts, however I wouldn’t rule out his carrying Lindsey Graham like an eviscerated tauntaun if he occurred to really feel a light draft within the Capitol Rotunda.)
In fact, I’d be extra frightened about this if I believed Donald Trump truly cared sufficient about laws and, nicely, working, to run for speaker. Or if I weren’t satisfied that Bannon will probably be at the very least 98% fungus by 2022.
That stated, I believed Trump operating for president was only a large joke, and look how that turned out. So, yeah, file this underneath “we’ll see.” And if it goes any additional than Sloppy Steve’s febrile imaginings, perhaps then we are able to file it underneath “we’ll seep blood from our terrified eye holes.”
Till that day, one factor’s for positive: Republicans are going to get loopier and loopier the longer they hew to Trumpism—no matter that’s. “Being an asshole” is the one overarching precept I can discern, however whatevs.
