A Turn Against Trump? “Civil War” Tweet Works into the Republican Consciousness

Recall this, we highlighted the viciousness of it yesterday, and all that it means: ….If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal.” Pastor Robert Jeffress, @FoxNews — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2019 We noted that Americans ran into machine guns on the beaches of Normandy for their country, yet Trump seems to be implying that we need machine gun each other down to save him, fuck the country. Others have taken note: NOW From a GOP Senate staffer: "The Civil War tweet is a tipping point for some, but not all." Says Trump's actions are pushing the GOP toward removal if that vote comes. It boils down to @senatemajldr . "If Sen. McConnell votes for removal, then it's over." @realDonaldTrump — Brian J. Karem (@BrianKarem) October 1, 2019 Forget for just one moment that it is Mitch McConnell, and just relish for a moment that Trump is not in control of his own destiny. Now would be as good a time as any to remind ourselves that Jared Kushner was spotted visiting McConnell late last week. Chuck Grassley is now reminding … well, it seems like he’s reminding an audience of one, Individual 1, to keep his mouth shut: NEW: Sen. Grassley statement on whistleblower: “This person appears to have followed the whistleblower protection laws and ought to be heard out and protected … No one should be making judgments or pronouncements without hearing from the whistleblower first." pic.twitter.com/rw5cFZzJlG — NBC Politics (@NBCPolitics) October 1, 2019 The best challenge that I have seen today? Crowdsourcing this: Running count of Senate GOP members who have issued a full-bore condemnation of “Civil War 2” and “Arrest my opponents” If reporters aren’t flooding the zone with Senate comms staff, they’re doing it wrong. This is an important moment. — Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) September 30, 2019 It would appear to me that the leak concerning “If McConnell votes …” indicates that reporters are flooding the zone. We have repeated two adages several times over the last bit: The end could come blindingly fast, especially as Republican senators eye each other nervously. And we’ve also referenced the old stock trader adage: “Don’t panic, but if you do panic, panic first,” which matches the thought process of Republican senators, eyeing each other nervously, checking their twitter feed. We have almost made it through another day. ALMOST: Update, Richard Engel’s quote really frames the dilemma for Republicans. They HAVE to see that this is taking the country in a direction from which there is simply no return. This is just beyond what many of them can take: Not normal is an understatement. It's off the hook, The wheels have come off the bus. The AG investigating US intel services, via foreign intel services? ,.. what? https://t.co/7Y1lyIFe6o — Richard Engel (@RichardEngel) September 30, 2019 **** Peace, y’all Jason jmiciak@yahoo.com, and on Twitter, where I am collecting followers: @MiciakZoom
