Even conservatives are calling for the GOP to step up to the plate:
“On it went all week—one Trumpian argument after another falling apart. And yet Republican officeholders mostly stuck by their president. Some of them praised Trump. Others avoided comment. Still others focused exclusively — reflexively, predictably — on the (very real) inconsistency of Democrats.”
“We understand these arguments. We’ve made some of them. But there are times, when the stakes are high, that self-respecting officeholders need to lead, even if it’s politically risky, rather than circle the wagons.”
Where Are the Statesmen in the GOP?
Taegan Goddard’s Political Wire
quoting William Kristol
Are there any Republicans working
to curb the catastrophe lurking?
Is their own moral compass
subsumed in that trump ass
who’s bilking the country and smirking?
