Boehner: Trump Incited Deadly Riot

Post by Moksha »

Trump “incited that bloody insurrection for nothing more than selfish reasons, perpetuated by the B.S. he’d been shoveling since he lost a fair election the previous November.”

Boehner said it was "painful" for him to watch what unfolded at the Capitol on Jan. 6 and the incident "should have been a wake-up call for a return to Republican sanity.”

Was Boehner being overly optimistic when he spoke of Republican sanity? I have a hard time imagining Republicans ever returning to normal now that Trump has let the fascist genie out of the bottle.

I think the most recent fit of Republican sanity was long before he became speaker.

Trump's comment was to call Boehner a RINO. I guess most of the GOP was not really the GOP until Trump got involved.

Remember when the conservatives on this forum were calling Trump a RINO?

Until he somehow succeeded in becoming the Republican nominee for President, after which many of his harshest Republican critics and detractors suddenly claimed to have become diehard supporters. Disgusting! :x
No precept or claim is more likely to be false than one that can only be supported by invoking the claim of Divine authority for it--no matter who or what claims such authority.

QAnon's earthy status does not matter to followers who follow his conservative whiff.
