Trump Didn’t Create The Modern GOP

It’s surprising what you will say when you know you won’t be held accountable for it.

Indeed, how can they be? “LOCK ‘EM UP!”? For what? Being idiots in public?

They are following the gibbering orange moron. And he is the logical outcome of the backlash against LBJ starting in 1964. Johnson was accused (albeit by the fringe, but I remember the books peddled by the John Birch Society, among others) of stealing that election.

What, you thought Trump was sui generis?

Reagan attacked the legitimacy of government; Gingrich attacked the legitimacy of Congress and Clinton.  Gingrich’s spiritual children grab microphones almost daily attacking the legitimacy of everything. And now some Republicans decry the monster they assiduously created.

Why shouldn’t the Texas GOP be batshit crazy?
