What a traitor…
Recently on MSNBC former Gov. Bill Weld (R-MA) insisted that if Republicans defend President Trump against House Democrats’ impeachment efforts, they will “go down in droves” in 2020.
According to Breitbart, Weld stated, “I don’t know whether it’s Stockholm syndrome, people identifying with their captor. I thought former Senator Flake of Arizona wrote a very good piece recently where he said, if ever there was a time to put country over party, he was addressing his former colleagues and Republican senators, ever a time to put country over party, it is now. And if you do that, addressing the senators, you might just save the Grand Old Party, meaning the Republican Party, before it’s too late. I agree with his implied premise there, which is that if the Republicans sit there next to the yoke of Donald Trump and march in lockstep to defend him irrespective of the evidence, they’re going to go down in droves. I’ve seen this movie before. I saw the congressman who defended Nixon all summer long, they all lost when they faced the voters at the polls the next year because they looked like fools.”
He then added, “If the Republican senators march in lockstep behind Trump irrespective of the evidence at the trial, those who are up next year will lose.” You can watch a clip of Weld’s comments here.
