Democrats keep on hinting that a number of Republicans are getting fed up.  But not enough backbone front eh GOP to go public about it as yet.

Guess we can hope, but I just remember how all the many virulently anti-Trump Republicans caved when he became the nominee, if not before.

Doesn't matter.  99.9% of Republicans fully supported Trump once he became the nominee.  Almost every member of the Senate Republicans have voted for his nominees.

Huge number of Republicans said terrible things about Trump, how unqualified he was, how dangerous he was, etc. before he became the nominee.  Now they all support him as president.

After the firing of FBI Director Comey, reportedly some prominent Republican Trump supporters have described Donald Trump as--

" Richard Nixon on steroids".

And have reiterated, "This guy scares me."--

According to David Ignatius - - Associate Editor of the Washington Post.

Ignatius sums it up--
" A lot of people are scared and wonder how do we get out of this?"

WaPo "claims that even President Donald Trump’s most trusted aides and confidants are “bewildered and alarmed” by his recent behavior.

One GOP insider fretted that the president appears to be “in the grip of some kind of paranoid delusion” as he thrashes around for someone to blame for the tsunami of criticism generated by his abrupt firing of FBI Director James Comey....

 

“Trump is in some ways like a pilot opting to fly a plane through heavy turbulence then blaming the flight attendants when the passengers get jittery.”...

 

“Trump is so unsophisticated about government, and he lacks even basic knowledge about how the government functions, of what the unwritten but very important rules and traditions are. His attitude toward all those things is they don’t matter:...

I recommend Charles Krauthammer commentary about the Trump firing of Comey;  This political ax murder leaves very little mystery. 

 

Charles,  who was a frequent guest on the O'Reilly show and other Fox programs,  is of course very conservative,  but when it comes to Trump,  he is willing to buck the party line.

 

PS:  MR6666 referenced this commentary before I did at another Trump thread.

“It’s just another one of his fantasies that he is putting out before the public,” Sen. Dick Durbin said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

 

“I think we ought to get to the bottom line here:

President Trump is dangerous. Dangerous because he may be obstructing justice, in terms of the investigation that really goes to the heart of our democracy — the accountability of the President, and the people around him, to the rule of law — protecting our democracy from an invasion — a cyber-invasion by the Russians,” Durbin said.

 

Durbin added, “His credibility has been destroyed.”

House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Adam Schiff, D-Calif., also issued a blistering statement on Trump's tweets, calling on the president to "immediately provide any such recordings to Congress or admit, once again, to have made a deliberately misleading — and in this case threatening — statement."....

 

"Finally, and with respect to the President's suggestion that as a very busy person, he doesn't have time to ensure that his spokespeople are accurately portraying his actions — it is difficult to know how to respond — except to say,

being truthful with the American people is a core responsibility of the job," Schiff said.

 

"If he did not want to willingly undertake even the minimal requirements of the Presidency, it would have been far better for him to have considered that before he chose to run for the highest office in the land."....

well I doan know, Bogie56. you seem to be trying to say that trump didn't really wanna win and I kinda doubt that because a couple of times at his rallies he did say that all of this was for naught if he did not win.
 
I just doan think he woulda said that if he didn't wanna win. he certainly didn't expect to win. hell, nobody thought he would but the sonofagun pulled it off.

Trump did his level best during the campaign to convince voters that he was only enjoying a good con and that in no way was he qualified to be president.  He tried to convince them that he was a hateful bigot, a misogynist, a lousy businessman, a pathological liar, an idiot with an attention span of a butterfly, etc., etc. but i guess he overestimated a braindead public who embraced him anyway.

Replying to @RoguePOTUSStaff

 "Just keep him happy and smiling and the rest of us can work in peace. As long as he's not angry-ranting everything's fine.” Says Pence.

    Replying to @RoguePOTUSStaff

     

    Happy-ranting POTUS energizes the fringe and gives the party power.

    That's the emerging face of the GOP establishment.

     As of yet, this is still not a done deal. Good chance it dies in the Senate.

    Today made it more embarrassing if it fails.
