There has always been an uneasy relationship between mainstream Republicans and the Alt-Right (read: white supremacists) who got Donald Trump elected. The GOP establishment hitched their wagon to Trump despite that disturbing faction that so loyally supports him because they thought Trump would be a rubber stamp for their agenda. Now, we are seeing the Republican Party implode before our eyes, and the Alt-Right howls about betrayal in the Trump White House, especially when it comes to the increasing power of Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.
It is a well-known fact that Kushner and White House Chief Strategist and Alt-Right leader Stephen K. Bannon do not get along. In fact, it is being reported that it was Kushner who got Bannon off the Principals Committee of the National Security Council, and Bannon calls Kushner a ‘globalist’ and a ‘cuck’ when Kushner is not around. Of course, the Alt-Right types want Bannon to rule supreme in Trump’s White House, and thus they want Kushner gone. With all of that going on, the hashtag #FireKushner trended all the way to number one on Twitter on Friday night. Of course, those on the left are having a field day with it. Here are just a few tweets from that hashtag:

And that’s just for starters. The tweets keep coming, and the implosion continues. The Republican Party made a huge mistake by lining up behind Trump and getting him elected, and now they are stuck. They are unable to govern, the White House is in chaos, and the different factions of the party cannot agree on anything. To top it all off, Trump’s election exposed them for the racists that they are.
They might have made a deal with the devil to get into power, but the GOP is falling apart before our very eyes.
