Once again, The Lincoln Project nails the political concerns of the moment. This gifted group of Republicans and former Republicans used to effectively point the sharp end of their words at Democrats. But now, they have turned those wicked words onto the Republican Party.
A honky-tonk piano played in the background as those who have taken the Republican Party and turned it into the Trump Party walked through the week. We heard them blame January 6 on the heroic Washington Metropolitan Police Officer Michael Fanone, who saved their lives, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
Then, the video highlighted the rabid-like chihuahua of the House, Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) as a reporter asked him whether he talked to Donald Trump on January 6. Reports say he spent hours with the ex-president prior to the insurrection. He responded to the question affirmatively, but when the reporter asked if he talked to Trump before or after the mob attacked, Jordan uncharacteristically started hemming and hawing.
Then, The Lincoln Project walked House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) onto the stage where he talked about taking the gavel from Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in 2022 and holding back the urge to hit her with it. Nice, offering violence against women as a joke.
A holy roller apoplectically shouted at his big-tent audience:
‘Do not wear a mask in this church! Do not get vaccinated!’
Then, it was Representative Matt Gaetz’s opportunity to joke about the deadly coronavirus pandemic:
‘The Florida variant, the freedom variant. It affects the brain.’
This group of rowdy mediocre Republicans may find something as serious as January 6 or the terrible pandemic funny. But they failed miserably.
Then, Georgia’s own gun-toting Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) claimed she would not be whistled off-stage, would not be deterred — right before she was deterred.
Back to the honkey-tonk music and a Trumpster woman singing, “Vaccine. Vaccine. Vaciiiiine,” butchering a perfectly good popular song.
But the joke was entirely on them.
