Channeling Howard Beale

And still a majority of Republicans are willing to stand behind Trump.

Why?

Do they like and respect him? Is it a matter of blind loyalty, of stubbornness masquerading as “principle,” that they don’t want to give in to any Democratic demand? Is it still just political theatre, all about optics and personal goals and aspirations?

Or is it more that they are afraid? Afraid of pissing off the empty-headed hooligans who are ready to drink the kool-aid for Trump? Afraid for their lives and for their loved ones? Is this what it has come to, what it boils down to?

Is this the sad situation we all find ourselves in at the moment—that we are all being held hostage in some way by a megalomaniacal toddler who is still pulling the strings?

What. The. Hell!
