It was inevitable. Faced with increasing evidence of Russian meddling in our elections, it was only a matter of time before Republicans began believing that traitorous surrender to a foreign power was actually totally okay!
A Yahoo Finance/Survey Monkey poll finds 11% of Republicans say it would be appropriate for Russia to intervene in the upcoming U.S. elections on behalf of Trump and Republicans, and 29% say it would not be appropriate, but it wouldn’t be a big deal.
That number will only grow as more Republicans realize that yes, their president is a tool of a hostile foreign power. And faced with the choice of recoiling in horror at this kind of treason, or embracing their new Russian masters? It’s only logical they would choose treason.
I mean, these are the same people that proudly wave the Confederate treason flag. Allegiance and loyalty to their country is not their strong suit.
