Rachel Maddow identified that Republicans are making most of the errors that they made in 2016, and wasn’t shopping for their claims of shock over Trump congratulating Kim Jong-un.
Barring Kim Jong-un like stepping down and apologizing. That is perhaps the one factor you’d congratulate him for. In any other case, don’t congratulate. Standing order in relation to the dictator of North Korea. However there’s Trump. Warmly congratulating Kim Jong-un and misspelling it within the meantime. And , in a standard political world someplace between you deciding to congratulate the North Korean dictator and also you misspelling that congratulations, someplace between there, the thought of you as presidential materials would love shred itself and blow away on the median of a ten-lane freeway. However as a substitute, he’s nonetheless the entrance runner of the Republican Occasion’s nominating contest for 2024. Don’t congratulate.
And all the opposite candidates in that race, and there are a lot of of them now, they’re all fighting what to do even with one thing that unhealthy. With one thing that clearly incorrect. Even with this man issuing heat congratulations to the North Korean dictator. Florida governor Ron DeSantis, for instance, he was requested about this and he managed to say that he was, quote, stunned to see that congratulations from former president Trump for the dictator of North Korea. He mentioned he was stunned. Shocked, actually? I imply, Trump expressing heat misspelled congratulations to the North Korean dictator is loads of issues, however is it stunning, actually? You actually didn’t see that coming? You didn’t see that actual factor from him earlier than?
Maddow’s broader level was that Republicans are repeating the entire similar errors that handed Trump the occasion’s nomination in 2016. The Republican Occasion is so afraid to problem and name Trump out that they faux to feign shock when he buddies up with the dictator in North Korea.
The extra issues change. The extra they keep the identical.
Republicans are nonetheless petrified of Donald Trump.
