When one person has control of one of the two major political parties, that party is no longer a party of ideas or platforms, they become a dictatorship within themselves. The GOP under Donald Trump has been forced into a position in which they support everything he says, even if what he says is harmful to the country and patently false, or lose their jobs.

On Thursday, Trump issued a statement warning “wayward Republicans” like Mitt Romney (R-UT), Liz Cheney (R-WY), and Ben Sasse (R-NE), each of whom has had their public disagreements with Trump, that it’s their fault the GOP is so divided. Of course, it couldn’t possibly be Trump’s fault considering that he’s spent his time in the spotlight insulting these people, spreading propaganda that includes crazed conspiracy theories, and demands loyalty.
For the record, Democrats do disagree on some policy agendas. More progressive Democrats like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) often disagree on policies with more moderate members like Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) and Joe Manchin (D-WV). They just don’t sling grade school bully nicknames at one another or kick people out of leadership for having a difference of opinion with other members of the party.
Republicans, no matter how many times Trump insists have better policies than their counterparts, have been unable to vocalize even what their platform was for the 2020 elections. Most of their agenda seems to be “just support Trump” even though he lost the election and even dragged some GOP candidates down in the election, lagging far behind them. That and Trump are the two reason that Democrats have taken back the House, the Senate, and the White House in recent years.
Twitter was disgusted by Trump’s latest rant and by having to see it on social media after Trump’s ban. Read some of their comments below:
