Republican chairwoman just issued a blatant threat to her own party on Trump's behalf



Observers both inside and outside the GOP have argued for some time that the Republican Party is already dead. At the very least, itís no longer the party of conservatives, but the party of Trump, they insist. After a tweet late Wednesday by Republican Party Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel, it appears the argument is over.

That threat is actually a complete capitulation on behalf of the GOP establishment, and it marks the end of the Grand Ole Party as we know it. The Republican Party is now the Party of Trump, come what may.

Is the coup finally complete?

17. How many

folks are actually in the trump cult? I'm curious if old style repubs are finding themselves on the outs. Will they be the ones to skip voting for repub reps and senators?

2. There was never a "Grand Ole Party" at least not since the mid 20th century. This is

the natural devolution of the republican scam. It's who they are. I almost don't blame this psychotic baboon for channeling the blood thirsty hordes or so called base of this monstrosity. This thing is what they've been working towards since Nixon.

18. In the 1970s

before the religious right sold their souls to the repubs for their cultural issues, the party was more sane. They supported conservative economic issues, but were not into cultural issues. Heck they were pro-environment too. But then they started their brainwashing and propagandizing of voters which led us to today. Nixon's Law and Order campaign issue was the result of student protests pushing liberal ideas. You know they are doing the same with the Parkland students gun control push. If folks aren't motivated to vote in November to slow/stop the trump/repub agenda, I really don't know what it would take.

This batch of hypocrites will be the ones who have to answer for the demise of the Repugnican Party. Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of greedy bastards.

16. The GOP couldn't be any more explicit.




The voice of the GOP says follow Trump blindly. Trump is a narcissistic traitor
who is doing all he can to bring this country down. So it's clear that is what
the GOP wants too.

26. The coup will not truly be a fait accompli until the investigation is ended...

...and Trump is positioned for "re-election" or abdication to Pence. But it looks pretty much done.

The Skripal attack cleared the air and let everyone know what time it is.

28. About republicanazis.

You need to keep it simple. That's why they love three word chants like Lock Her Up.

Pres. Obama was too intelligent and they didn't understand what he was saying.

Dump speaks the language of Dumbfuckistan and the small minded get it!

It doesn't get smaller than fealty to a dictator espousing hate and violence.

History is available to those who choose to learn. Start with Germany in the 1920s.

Better still, skip to the ending to see how it works out in 1945.

31. Trump's final victory on this front: Rebranding the GOP's name to something that he devises.

.

After taking over the hellish-soul of the GOP, the next step is to erase the GOP name, and rebrand it.

I would not be surprised if that happens after the 2018 election.
