Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Jennifer Rubin: Republicans backed an erratic, unstable man for president who cares only about his own wealth and glory. Now that they cannot cope with the political monster they created, they prefer to write him off as an independent? No way. [Donald] Trump's on you, Republicans.

President Trump is not an "independent," as right-wing Republicans now would like to believe. (Didn't they spend the campaign trying to convince fellow Republicans that he was really a conservative?) Trump ran for the GOP nomination, captured the party and now hypes every bad idea that the party's most extreme elements have espoused -- tax cuts for the rich, anti-immigrant hysteria, fear-mongering on crime, know-nothingism on climate change, anti-government animus, and bigotry toward the LGBT community (hence the totally unnecessary ban on transgender recruits to the military). Much as Republicans might like to disown him, they cannot. They remain responsible for nominating the most unfit person ever to hold the office.

Not surprising that the thing in the white house got selected. They almost had Palin as VP at one point in time, that shows you how far they will bend over.

See how they run. They're trying to put as much distance between Trump and themselves that they can. But you can't run from yourself.

Republicans aren't distancing themselves from Donnie Dumpsterfire. They're literally the reason he's still in office. They do everything they can to protect that greedy, fat, spoiled child.

(He's literally the poster child for the GOP.)

All they're doing is creating a buffer between themselves and Dumpsterfire. Midterm elections will be approaching. His popularity is none existent and they can't have his stench on them.

He's actually been trending upwards for a month, and has climbed back to almost 40% approval averaged between polls.
