Rachel Maddow identified that Republicans are making lots 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 may be the one factor you’d congratulate him for. In any other case, don’t congratulate. Standing order relating to the dictator of North Korea. However there’s Trump. Warmly congratulating Kim Jong-un and misspelling it within the meantime. And you recognize, 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 concept of you as presidential materials would really like 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 various of them now, they’re all scuffling with what to do even with one thing that dangerous. With one thing that clearly unsuitable. 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 stated he was stunned. Shocked, actually? I imply, Trump expressing heat misspelled congratulations to the North Korean dictator is quite a lot of issues, however is it shocking, actually? You actually didn’t see that coming? You didn’t see that precise factor from him earlier than?
Maddow’s broader level was that Republicans are repeating all the identical errors that handed Trump the occasion’s nomination in 2016. The Republican Occasion is so afraid to problem and name Trump out that they fake 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 frightened of Donald Trump.
