There are two characteristics of Donald Trump’s alleged personality that are eminently predictable: 1) He is obsessively fixated on himself and his own self-interest, and 2) He demands unflinching loyalty from others to the point of virtual worship.
Trump demonstrated both of these textbook narcissistic traits on Wednesday when he petulantly announced that he is revoking his endorsement of Mo Brooks for the Senate in Alabama. The retraction naturally came in the form of a tweet posted by his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill, Liz Harrington. He aged that…
“Mo Brooks of Alabama made a horrible mistake recently when he went ‘woke’ and stated, referring to the 2020 Presidential Election Scam, ‘Put that behind you, put that behind you,’ despite the fact that the Election was rife with fraud and irregularities. If we forget, the Radical Left Democrats will continue to Cheat and Steal Elections. Just look at what is happening in Wisconsin, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and elsewhere, but tremendous progress has been made that will help us in 2022 and 2024. The 2020 Election was rigged and we can’t let them get away with it.”
Poor thing. Trump must have been so crushed when Brooks betrayed him by turning “woke.” Never mind that this betrayal wasn’t actually “recent” at all. Trump is referring to remarks Brooks made seven months ago. And he hardly diverted from Trump’s “Big Lie” because shortly after saying that people should look forward to 2022 and 2024, he described himself as a candidate who will become “a Senator who fearlessly fights Socialist Democrat voter fraud and election theft.”
But it was too late. Trump will not tolerate any concession that the future should take precedence over his obsession with the past and his humiliating loss to Joe Biden in 2020. Even his Fox News flunky, Stuart Varney, couldn’t pull him off of that ledge. And for an election that he says “was rife with fraud and irregularities,” he has been pitifully incapable of producing any evidence of it. But Trump wasn’t through venting. He continued saying that…
“When I endorsed Mo Brooks, he took a 44-point lead and was unstoppable. He then hired a new campaign staff who ‘brilliantly’ convinced him to ‘stop talking about the 2020 Election.’ He listened to them. Then, according to the polls, Mo’s 44-point lead totally evaporated all based on his ‘2020’ statement made at our massive rally in Cullman, Alabama. ‘When I heard his statement, I said, ‘Mo, you just blew the Election, and there’s nothing you can do about it.’ Very sad but, since he decided to go in another direction, so have I, and I am hereby withdrawing my Endorsement of Mo Brooks for the Senate. I don’t think the great people of Alabama will disagree with me. Election Fraud must be captured and stopped, or we won’t have a Country anymore. I will be making a new endorsement in the near future!”
In that tirade Trump actually revealed the real reason he is dumping Brooks: “Mo’s 44-point lead totally evaporated.” Trump’s ego can’t handle his being caught supporting a loser. And Brooks is currently trailing his opponents by double digits. As a reminder, this is the rabid America Firster that Trump hailed with passionate praise, saying that…
“Few Republicans have as much COURAGE and FIGHT as Alabama Congressman Mo Brooks. Mo is a great Conservative Republican leader who will stand up for America First no matter what obstacles the Fake News Media, RINOs, or Socialist Democrats may place in his path.” […] Mo Brooks has my Complete and Total Endorsement for the U.S. Senate representing the Great State of Alabama. He will never let you down!”
Sadly, Brooks did let Trump down. And he proved that Trump’s “Complete and Total Endorsement” is neither if you aren’t a devoted and glassy-eyed disciple of the Cult of Trump. Oddly, Brooks is just such a sycophant. He was the first member of Congress to back up Trump’s January 6th insurrection and coup attempt. In fact, Brooks might have been even more extreme and treasonous than Trump. He said at the time that Trump’s followers should be prepared to sacrifice their lives for him:
“Our choice is simple. We can surrender and submit, or we can fight back as our ancestors have done. Think for a moment about our ancestors who fought at Valley Forge. They didn’t fight the British, they fought for survival. Twelve thousand Continental soldiers arrived. Five, six months later two thousand had died.
“Think about what they went through. Burying your brothers, your fathers, your sons. Ten to fifteen a day, every day for six months. That’s the kind of sacrifice that we have to think about. And I ask you: are you willing to fight for America? Are you willing to fight for America? Well, the choice is simple. This is how you fight for America. This is what America needs you to do.”
And yet, this is the person who is now too squishy a RINO, too submissive to the “Radical Left” and the “Fake News” to maintain Trump’s support. What’s truly frightening is what that means for those still on the Trump train. If Brooks isn’t sufficiently Trumpified, who the F**K is?
