I bet Trump will attack him for being disloyal and other republicans will question his motives. He will probably get a primary challenger too. It is nice too see a republican say he should be impeached but I don’t have confidence others will

I think they've bought into the hype, myself. Cognitive dissonance is a thing, you know -- and unfortunately, not something that lies within one side.

What policies? The unbuilt wall? The right wing judges every other Republican would nominate? The health care and tax changes he had little to do with? Trumps political career has just been him being awful to millions of people and getting support from it despite having no real policies.

Which is the weirdest thing I've observed, for his policies won't benefit his base. Already the trade war has cost US farmers dearly.

It was already blatantly false and they said it anyhow. Propaganda isn't restrained by truth.


Love? Probably not. Fall in line? Absolutly.

Jeff Flake was vocally against trump and yet voted with him 86% of the time. I suspect it will be the same with this guy.

Couldn't completely repeal Obamacare? PAUL RYAN WAS A RHINO THE WHOLE TIME!!!!
Working on infrastructure? THE EBIL RHINOS STOPPED US FROM FIXING THINGS!
Muslim Ban? THE EBIL COURTS MADE A POLITICAL RULING!!!!!!!!!


They still think the war in Syria is over and that trump ended it. They still like him on trade, the trade war especially despite some farmers being mad. They definitely love the economy.

But most of all, they ALL HATE THE DEMOCRATS!! Trump has used the division in this country to great effect. They can blame all his failures on the dems and their relentless pursuit of lies after "TOTAL EXONERATION!"

There are plenty of ways for the base to blame someone else for Trump's poor leadership.
