Over the past week, Republicans have proven that they don’t need Donald Trump to embarrass them anymore. They’ve taken full control of their own embarrassment and are doing a bang-up job of handling it themselves.

After all, with members like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, who wants to “lock up” the colleague she once harassed with a future insurrectionist at her side, and Lauren Boebert, whose main goal of the day is to censure President Biden because he hasn’t fixed “the border crisis” in five months of his presidency, the GOP doesn’t need much help humiliating themselves.
But just for good measure, the video The Lincoln Project put together reminded Twitter that in just one week:
Eric Trump said on Fox News that he keeps being subpoenaed for putting “commas out of place.”
Fox News shipped the credibility of Alex Jones.
Rudy Giuliani’s son ranted from a random parking lot that his dad is being persecuted.
Trump held a rally in which he called Marjorie Taylor Greene, the woman who openly filmed herself taunting a colleague whose child is trans, “loved” and “respected” and “kind.”
That same Marjorie Taylor Greene mocked the term LGBTQ in rant about how a policy she supports is so awesome and inclusive.
Tucker Carlson, who has ranted about his love for the American military for years, called a military general “stupid” and “a pig.”
A far-right wing host on Newsmax called for the execution of election officials.
Twitter found the video both hilarious and rather frightening. Read their take on “Last Week in the Republican Party” below:
