Paul Ryan has had enough and announced he’s not running for reelection. How do other congressmen feel? Conservative radio host and blogger Erik Erickson is reporting that during his trip to Washington, D.C., he met up with a Republican congressman (who he declined to name), who has publicly been very supportive of Donald Trump. They took a clandestine walk through the aisles of a grocery store outside of D.C. (because the congressman didn’t want to be seen, and this Republican congressman went off on Trump and his disastrous leadership
“It’s like Forrest Gump won the presidency,” said the congressman, “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.
“I say a lot of shit on TV defending him [Trump]. But honestly, I wish the motherfucker would just go away. We’re going to lose the House, lose the Senate, and lose a bunch of states because of him. All his supporters will blame us for what we have or have not done, but he hasn’t led. He wakes up in the morning, shits all over Twitter, shits all over us, shits all over his staff, then hits golf balls. Fuck him. Of course, I can’t say that in public or I’d get run out of town.”
“Judiciary is stacked with a bunch of people who can win re-election so long as they don’t piss off Trump voters in the primary,” said the congressman. “But if we get to summer and most of the primaries are over, they just might pull the trigger [impeachment] if the President fires Mueller. The shit will hit the fan if that happens and I’d vote to impeach him myself. Most of us would, I think. Hell, all the Democrats would and you only need a majority in the House. If we’re going to lose because of him [Trump], we might as well impeach the motherfucker. Take him out with us and let Mike [Pence] take over. At least then we could sleep well at night,” he said before going off on a tangent about how the situations with Russia and China scare him. Then, “You know having Mike as President would really piss off all the right people, too. They think they hate Trump. Mike is competent,” at which point Erickson said the congessman sighs and laments that there were, in his mind, more than a dozen competent choices in 2016.
