4. This is the sentence that made my stomach clench

“He has a complete connection with the average Republican voter and that’s given him political power here,” said Representative Patrick McHenry, Republican of North Carolina, adding: “Trump has touched the nerve of my conservative base like no person in my lifetime.”[/

What a strange reality Trump lives in where his every impulse comes down to controlling other peoples loyalty. But it has worked like a charm. If you want to stay in office he gives you no choice. I’m surprised more Senators aren’t retiring, but I’m sure Moscow Mitch is very busy talking them down.

I’m still pondering the Daily Show segment where Jordan Klepper interviewed supporters at a rally. It was amazing to see him go back and forth with them on impeachment. Not in a challenging way, but just to see if they realized how crazy it sounded to say “read the transcript”, and in their next sentence admit that they hadn’t read it. https://m.

Who knew that 30-40% of the country thought like this.
