If You Were Hoping Americans Would Finally Have an Epiphany
Newsweek thought, in the aftermath of Trump's terrorist attack on Congress on Wednesday, it might be a good idea to consult Republican supporters. Were they aghast? Were they finally done with their fiendish cult leader?
Almost half of surveyed Republican voters, 45 per cent, said they strongly support the thugs who attacked the Capitol building. 43 per cent said they somewhat or strongly opposed the act of domestic terrorism. Well the Capitol building was no Fort Sumter but this is just getting started.
And Donald Trump will be pleased with this news. A slim majority of Republicans polled, 51 per cent, say they don't believe Trump bears any blame for the siege of the Capitol or the five deaths that ensued. That's good news, not just for Trump but for his 'stay behind' partisans in the Treason Caucus.
I have to say that, when it comes to cults, Trump has 'em stacked up like cordwood. He'd make Jim Jones jealous or at least he would if Jim wasn't dead.
