Why don't congressional Republicans stand up and defend Trump?

June 2, 2017 By Tom Knepper

That sound you don't hear is the sound of Republican senators and congresscritters rushing to the defense of Donald Trump as he comes under vicious attack from the extreme left, which is to say the Democratic Party and the fakestream media. The question is, why don't you hear a sound?

Very many of the Republicans in Congress probably owe their seats to Donald Trump. No one else came close to expressing the disgust that voters felt for incumbents of both parties. Their disgust for the R branch of the Uniparty was only marginally less than that for the D branch. But Trump's coattails swept many of the R-branchers into office............ We already know that most of them are timid and that the nickname "the Stupid Party" is well deserved........Many R-branch Unipartisans want impeachment as much as the D branch, as incredible as that might seem at first.  Their hatred of Trump knows no bounds..............Read more:

My Take - Real leadership is the willingness to be unliked for long periods of time....that will be Trump's strength and triumph over the long haul.  The 2018 election will tell the tale.  It's my opinion many of the Republicans and Democrats will end up with the opportunity to go back home permanently and earn their living the way the rest of us do.  By producing something that's worth something.  It's unfortunate Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham and John McCain won't be in that mix as none are up for re-election until 2020.  Graham is 61, McCain is 80 and McConnell is 75, so it's my guess - with the exception of McCain - they'll probably run again.  Of course McCain might run just so he can be in front of a camera, which is an addiction for him.
