Trump unleashes unhinged Twitter assault on Republican “Surrender Caucus” for not standing by him

Over the weekend, the nation was rocked by yet another scandal committed by its criminal president when a phone conversation between Donald Trump and Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger was released, showing the former trying to cajole and intimidate the latter into flipping his state’s election from blue to red.

Trump said he wanted Raffensberger to “find 11,780 votes,” a blatant euphemism for either manufacturing or discarding votes. Much to the chagrin of the soon-to-be-ex-president, Raffensberger refused to cave in the face of his bullying, even after Trump implied that he could face some form of vague criminal consequences if he failed to comply.

The shocking phone call, which has now been released in full, represents the most flagrant attempt yet by Trump to steal himself a second term — something which he has been trying to do to a lesser extent for months with his pathetic misinformation campaign and insistence that he actually defeated President-elect Joe Biden.

Add your name to tell prosecutors to CHARGE TRUMP for trying to get Georgia’s Secretary of State to rig the election!

Demonstrating the collective backbone you’d find in a pod of jellyfish, most Republicans are once again failing to step forward to defend our democracy. Many of them, perhaps most notably Senator Ted Cruz — a cigar-chomping parody of a Texan who has by now been utterly emasculated and subsumed by the man who once implied that his wife was ugly and that his father was involved in the JFK assassination — are actively working to reverse the election.

Cruz and other GOP hacks are demanding that an election commission be formed to investigate the president’s debunked and transparently fabricated allegations of widespread voter fraud and have stated that they intend to vote to reject Biden’s legitimately earned electors on Wednesday unless such a bogus commission is formed.

It seems unlikely that Cruz, who combatted accusations of voter fraud of his own from Trump during the 2016 Republican primary, actually believes the president’s lies. It’s far more likely that he and his comrades believe that pandering to the MAGA dead-ender crowd will make them viable Republican presidential candidates in the future. They’re engaged in politicking of the most cynical sort and our democracy will suffer as a result.

Surprisingly, Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR), a reliably odious far-right lunatic, has announced that he will not be opposing Biden’s electors on Wednesday. “The Founders entrusted our elections chiefly to the states — not Congress. They entrusted the election of our president to the people, acting through the Electoral College — not Congress. And they entrusted the adjudication of election disputes to the courts — not Congress,” stated Cotton over the weekend.

Perhaps Cotton believes the MAGA era of his party is drawing to an end and his chips will be better bet on a saner, establishment version of the GOP, but whatever his reason his refusal to fall in line has predictably drawn the president’s ire on Twitter. He tagged the senator’s username and warned that Republicans will “NEVER FORGET” what he is doing right now.

Trump followed up with a quote from Cruz, endorsing the senator’s lies about “voter fraud” as “True!”

Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) also earned a quote tweet from the president for lying about the intentions behind the Republican Party’s election lies.

Trump finished his tweet barrage by blasting the “Surrender Caucus” inside the Republican Party and saying that its members will “go down in infamy as weak and ineffective ‘guardians’ of our Nation” for accepting “fraudulent” election results. Presumably this “Surrender Caucus” is composed of men like Cotton who have failed to fully endorse the president’s delusional claims about the election.

The reality, of course, is that men like Cruz who are aiding a direct assault on our sacred democratic election process are the ones who will go down in infamy. History will remember them as servants of a cruel, idiotic, authoritarian who was soundly defeated at the ballot box and ultimately removed from office in disgrace.
