Trump Warns If Republicans Lose Senate in 2020, It’s Because of Romney

Donald Trump is incapable of original thought, needless to say. That’s why he recycles tweets and talking points from Fox News.

Kimberly Strassel is a columnist for the Wall Street Journal and an admirer of Trump.

The senate Republicans hung themselves. Their fate cannot rationally be linked to Mitt Romney. What can possibly be this woman’s logic? Romney did the right thing and in so doing he hurt vulnerable Republicans, who would have been aided if he did the wrong thing? The problem with this viewpoint is that it’s optics focused. If Romney had made the entire situation look partisan, as the Republicans had hoped, that would have helped the other senators. But choosing to go against the optics of the situation and come down on the right side of history, was a bad thing.

I guess this is the twisted thinking that we’re going to see for a while. It certainly underscores the Republican dogma of this age — don’t worry about right and wrong, just put up the right appearance. As to the comment about Chuck Schumer wanting to retake the Senate — of course Schumer wants to retake the senate. That’s not some hidden manipulation on Schumer’s part, that’s the fervent prayer of every Democrat alive — and probably some of the dead ones are clanking their chains in favor of that proposition as well.

It’s quite clear who the Republican whipping post is going to be in 2020, at least so far as Trump is concerned.

So, I guess the head on the pike thing is true. And that chick just trying to get some mileage from a tweet. Although she’s probably stupid enough to believe it’s true. What is true is that Romney is extremely religious and voted for what he believes in. And the senate was in trouble the minute a-hole Moscow Mitch McConnell said he would rush trial through without witnesses and acquit the orangutan!

Romney did the right thing and stood for truth. If they lose it’s because they refused to.

I wish I could be put in a deep sleep until Nov. It’s the only way to keep the hornets in my head calm.

The cons have a habit of pointing fingers at everyone else. They don’t disappoint, do they?

Here we go again! Every thing is always others fault. If he (what I sencirely hope) lose in Nov. it’s not his fault. Indeed it is.But American people in common are very badly educated, and DeVos will increase it, and can’t look trough his shit.
