Voters did not elect Joe Biden to continue the Trump violence, hatred, and mismanagement of the government. They wanted a sane president who will act like a president instead of a petulant child obsessed with his own importance and his desire for attention. IMHO, Biden should state clear of the Trump trial leaving it to Senate and focus on getting people vaccinated, businesses and schools open and help getting the country through the mess that Trump has left.Last Wednesday, fully 93% of House Republicans voted against impeaching Trump for inciting insurrection, even after his attempted coup threatened their very lives. Prior to the raid, several Republican members of Congress repeated those lies on television and Twitter and at “Stop the Steal” events – encouraging Trump followers to “fight for America” and start “kicking ass”.
This is the culmination of the growing insanity of the GOP over the last four years. Trump has remade the Republican party into a white supremacist cult living within a counter-factual wonderland of lies and conspiracies. More than half of Republican voters – almost 40 million people – believe Trump won the 2020 race; 45% support the storming of the Capitol; 57% say he should be the Republican candidate in 2024.
There’s no “center” between the reality-based world and theirs.
This Republican party traffics in conspiracy and thuggery – the new president must be bold on healthcare, equality and morewww.theguardian.com
Repealing all of Trumps executive orders, purging the entire federal government top to bottom, and signing HR 1 into law on day one, would accomplish that.
