It’s starting to dawn on failed, one-term former President Donald Trump that he’s going down in history as one of the worst chief executives in U.S. history, so he’s lashing out at everyone in the Republican Party as if he believes he can incinerate the GOP and walk away from the ashes like some sort of overweight, dimwitted phoenix.
During five hours of interviews he gave to Mollie Hemingway of the right-wing Federalist Society, Trump blamed the fact that he lost the 2020 election on everyone but the responsible party: Himself.
Instead, the loser ex-president placed the onus on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), branding him a “stupid fucker” and “a disgrace to the Republican Party.”
And yet, that’s precisely what Schumer said when Trump was elected in 2016:
Trump also told Hemingway that “The problem with the Republicans is they don’t know how to fight.”
Asked about Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE), who has been critical of the former president, Trump labeled Sasse “a terrible senator” who is “stupid” and a “loser.”
Know what else you don’t do? You don’t sit and gossip to a right-wing hack writer about members of your own political party. And if you do, then it’s clear you’re intent on burning down the whole thing for your own self-aggrandizement.
There’s lots of speculation over whether or not Trump will run again in 2024. If he does, there will plenty of knives out for him, and he shouldn’t be surprised when the very people he’s trashing now show up to return the favor.
