@CNN Politics Wednesday morning tweeted "Source- Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is upset with Trump over his latest Charlotesville comments."
Of course he is. It exposes the base of the Republican Party for what it. That harms the GOP's brand, and Majority Leader McConnell doesn't want to become Minority Leader McConnell.
We've seen and heard this play before, as both supposedly well-connected pundits and Democratic members of Congress assure the left, center, and mainstream media that GOP Representatives and Senators are oh, so annoyed by Donald Trump and are losing patience with him.
Let's check in with a Repub leader, one with a famous uncle, who has disembodied the comments made by the golf afficionado of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue from its source. Speaking to ABC's David Muir hours after the President's clarification of the clarification of his original remarks about the Charlottesville protest
White supremacists, neo-Nazis and other hate groups have “no place in the Republican party,” its chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel said Wednesday morning hours after President Donald Trump insisted that those groups did not deserve 100 percent of the blame for their violent rally over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia.
McDaniel defended Trump, who reiterated in a Tuesday press conference inside his Manhattan skyscraper that “there’s blame on both sides” for the deadly clashes last Saturday, telling ABC’s “Good Morning America” that the president had condemned the hate groups.
That condemnation, delivered Monday, came under great political pressure and was quickly undone Tuesday when the president repeated what had been his initial reaction, that the white supremacist groups and the protesters gathered to oppose them should share the blame for the violence that erupted.
R. Romney McDaniel continued "we have no place in our party at all for KKK, anti-Semitism, race- racism, bigotry, it has no place in the Republican Party, There is no home here. We don't want your vote. We don't support you. We'll speak out against you." Then she went down the rathole with "The president has said so."
Not so, when he puts "blame on both sides" and equates Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson with George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.
John Kasich and a few individuals aside, most Republicans see it as McDaniel does- condemn racism and bigotry and continue to support the racist and the bigot. And by no means call for removing from public land statues of Confederate leaders, who made war on the United States and its flag. Keep it safe and cozy, and don't offend the bigot and chief, the nation's chief defenders of the traitors inits past.
