It was a politically insane moment when Trump decided to run for president. During the debates, Mr. Trump called his Republican opponents names and he tried to intimidate candidates like Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. He even made fun of one candidate’s physical appearance, and that sent a bolt of unethical lightning through the Republican Party. In 2016, Nikki Haley, the former U.S. UN ambassador, said Trump’s rhetoric was dangerous. But Haley doesn’t think that way anymore. After the Pittsburgh synagogue shootings hit the news, Haley told the press not to blame the president.
When Trump was on the campaign trail, Republicans would complain about Trump’s violent undertones and his fierce criticism of immigrants during his rallies. Some Republicans thought Trump’s Hillary Clinton vindictiveness should be toned-down, but he turned-up his fine-tuned shade on Hillary like a true reality star. Most Republicans thought Trump would settle down after the election, but that didn’t happen. His tweets and speeches still bash his enemies and his actions still hurt American moral and stability, according to several news articles.
But now that Trump’s nasty and needless insinuation are creating a major crack in the social structure of the United States, Republicans lawmakers are as quiet as church mice. The collapse of the moral character of the Republican Party is front and center, according to the Washington Post. And Republican leaders are sanctioning that collapse by giving Trump their support. Republican lawmakers are afraid Trump will turn on them, and that never ends well for his targets.
Fear of Trump controls daily Republican behavior, according to Rick Wilson, a GOP strategist, and a Trump critic. The fact that no Republican leaders have come to the forefront and condemned Trump’s rhetoric after the synagogue shootings and the mail bomb debacle, shows how much fear there is in Washington. The power brokers in the Republican Party are hiding behind Trump’s nastiness, and they celebrate that position rather than being ashamed of it, according to people of Pittsburgh.
Mr. Trump condemned the synagogue massacre. He blamed the media for setting the stage for that event. That’s the way Trump rolls as president. The buck never stops with him. Trump always has someone or something else to blame when he’s caught tweeting madness and rage. And his Republican yes-men confirm and accept his lack of self-responsibility, according to the Washington Post.
