If you’re a supporter of President Donald Trump and you’re sick and tired of being mischaracterized by hacks, losers, and idiots in the mainstream media, we have some bad news for you.
That’s not going to stop anytime soon.
In fact, now that the president has conceded to President-elect Joe Biden and is on his way out of the Oval Office, thanks to no small amount of electoral shenanigans, you should probably expect the unhinged rhetoric to ramp up.
That’s how Trump Derangement Syndrome manifests itself; it never subsides, it only gets worse until it completely renders its victim unable to think or speak rationally about one of the best presidents our country has ever had.
Anderson Cooper said Wednesday afternoon on CNN that Republicans are “like a nihilistic death cult” if they continue to follow President Donald Trump.
A riot broke out Wednesday when a mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building in Washington, D.C. Lawmakers were scheduled to certify the Electoral College votes but were forced to evacuate due to a report of a suspicious package and because of the breach of the Capitol by the rioters.
“Let me ask you, the Republicans just lost the Senate and, you know, you had Donald Trump Jr. earlier this morning saying, you know, this is Donald Trump’s Republican Party, which we have said over and over and over again, which clearly it is now, why would any Republican continue to follow this man?” Cooper said as he interviewed former Pennsylvania GOP Sen. Rick Santorum. “As he goes off to Mar-a-Lago with his quarter of a billion dollars, I know they want some of that money, I know they’re afraid of a bad tweet, but I mean, just — the GOP is becoming like a nihilistic death cult if they follow him.”
“Again, I think, today, yesterday and today were two moments within the Republican Party that hopefully will give people in the party the opportunity to step back and say, do we want to sign this death pact?” Santorum responded. “Because I believe it is a death pact.”
Cooper asked Santorum if “people may be at that point.”
“Well, I think so — look, I’m hearing from a lot of people,” Santorum said. “And what I’m hearing is that, you know, we didn’t sign up for this.”
That answer helps explain why Santorum is an ex-Republican senator in the age of Donald Trump.
The fact is Cooper and the rest of the conga line of morons who comprise the Beltway media still, after four-plus years, have no clue why President Trump bonds so tightly with his base: It’s because they see him as one of them, not as a political aberrancy who threatens their protected ecosystems.
