This strange -- but insane -- tale begins with Erick Erickson wandering the aisles of a Safeway supermarket. He's accompanied by a Republican congressman who regularly appears on Fox News to defend President Donald Trump. "If we're going to lose because of him, we might as well impeach the motherf***er," the unnamed congressman told Erickson. That's according to a new post from the conservative commentator, who wrote about his encounter with "[one] of the President's congressional defenders" who "has privately decided he hates Trump and wants to unload."
He is not happy with President Trump. He was never a die hard Trump supporter. He supported him in the general and never expected him to win. But he did. So the congressman, whose district Trump won, has been a regular supporter on Fox News and elsewhere defending the President. He is happy to be quoted, so long as I don't name him. He says he just needs to vent. I suggest what we're doing is one of the reason's Trump won -- a congressman says nice things in public and bad things in private.
"I read you writing about this, about wanting to say nice things when you can and criticize when you need to. He may be an idiot, but he's still the President and leader of my party and he is capable of doing some things right," he continued. "But dammit he's taking us all down with him. We are well and truly f***ed in November. Kevin [McCarthy] is already circling like a green fly circling sh*t trying to take Paul's [Ryan] job because nobody thinks he's sticking around for Nancy [Pelosi]. She's going to f**k up the cafeteria again too. [Lord's name in vain], at least I'll probably lose too and won't have to put up with that sh*t."
"It's like Forrest Gump won the presidency, but an evil, really fucking stupid Forrest Gump. He can't help himself. He's just a fucking idiot who thinks he's winning when people are bitching about him. He really does see the world as ratings and attention."
