This is exactly on point.
I completely understand why they do this. It is just sad that they will not acknowledge that is why they do it.
The New York Times reported, “A Republican senator, speaking on the condition of anonymity because he wanted to preserve his relationship with Mr. Trump, put it more bluntly. The president, he said, scares no one in the Senate, not even the pages.”
There is a certain lack of courage present in saying that no scared of Trump anonymously, which is a bigger problem within the GOP. No one respects Trump. Republican elected officials aren’t afraid of Trump, but they also enable him by refusing to stand up to him.
Republicans aren’t afraid of Trump, but they are afraid of the millions of dollars of supportive super PAC ad buys that will be dropped on them if they openly criticize the president. The fear factor for any congressional Republican is getting primaried.
