Every time I think Trump’s GOP couldn’t possibly sink into depravity any further, I get another reminder of just how far they’ve fallen.
An Arizona TV reporter shared a social media post between one of Kelli Ward’s staffers and Kelli Ward herself:
She sounds delightful.
John McCain announced he was ending treatment and accepting his fate on Friday, August 24. This upset Kelli Ward because this “negative narrative” was clearly planned to interfere with her pointless bus tour. How devious of him. She complained about this on Saturday.
I guess McCain then decided to really turn the screws to her, because he passed away a few hours after she made that idiotic statement.
Rather than apologize for being depraved, selfish, and, well, frankly, stupid, Kelli Ward did the Trumpiest thing she could think of. She blamed the “Fake News”:
That twisted Fake News media and their agenda. They are the ones pushing the narrative that Kelli Ward is a heartless moron by unscrupulously… providing a screen grab of exactly what she said? When did her campaign become a Simpsons parody?
On her bus tour, after McCain’s announcement of his impending death, Ward continued to insult and bash him.
Somehow, that wasn’t even the worst thing she did on her bus tour this week:
Before the bus tour, Kelli Ward was openly suggesting that she should be appointed to the Senate seat upon McCain’s vacancy. Even the governor found this tasteless and said no way.
Trump has entirely revamped the GOP in his image. We now have right-wing candidates who follow his lead on degrading people, lying, and refusing to apologize under any circumstance. Here in Florida, just this month, we had a Trump candidate who faked a diploma, another who said his Muslim constituents provided no benefit to society, and a gubernatorial candidate who insulted Puerto Ricans. The common thread with all of them is that they all refused to admit they were wrong. They all doubled-down and/or blamed the “Fake News” for reporting on their behavior.
Even the so-called “moderate” Republican candidates have given up and are racing to out-bigot each other. The establishment candidate in the AZ Senate race is Martha McSally, who went from supporting the Dreamers to this raving lunacy:
Since launching her run for Senate, the Tucson Republican has appeared determined to prove that she, too, can go on Fox News and complain about immigrants. Her campaign materials and public statements have been littered with references to MS-13, sharia law, and chain migration, like a racist version of Mad Libs.
She also wants you to know that she could kill a man.
McSally has flipped on just about everything to where she now votes with Trump 97.8% of the time. McSally and Ward are the two leading GOP contenders to represent Arizona as a United States Senator. If you are a principled Republican and can’t stomach either of them, there’s always Joe Arpaio.
Or you can join us until your party regains its sanity.
