Kinda fitting to the cartoon….
In a speech on the House floor the eve of her ouster from House GOP leadership, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) said it was up to members of both parties — not just Republicans — to stop Trump from holding elected office again.
“Our duty is clear. Every one of us who has sworn the oath must act to prevent the unraveling of our democracy,” Cheney said. “This is not about policy. This is not about partisanship. This is about our duty as Americans. Remaining silent, and ignoring the lie, emboldens the liar.”
But Democrats say it’s solely up to Republicans to prevent Trump from continuing to lead their party.
“I feel like in almost any situation, no matter how hard or how much of a long shot it is, there’s usually something you can at least try to do to slightly alter the course of events. This is an exception to the rule,” said Democratic strategist Eddie Vale.
“For better or for worse, there is absolutely nothing any Democrat can say or do that is going to change Trump’s behavior and any attempt to do so will be as impactful as f@rting into a tornado,” he added.
