What Do Other Republicans Think Of Team Trump?

My wife suggested I take a look at a 'mainstream' Republican site, and this is what I found:
Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Conway railed against those who had pointed out her “alternative facts” comment, as she defended White House press secretary, Sean Spicer.

Said Conway:

“Who is cleaning house? Which one is going to be the first network to get rid of these people, the people who think things were just not true?” Conway asked on “Fox News Sunday.”

It’s as if Conway’s sole purpose, these days, is to put out fires and make sure somebody within the Trump camp is attacking the media, at all times.

“Not one network person has been let go. Not one silly political analyst and pundit who talked smack all day long about Donald Trump has been let go,” she added. “I’m too polite to mention their names, but they know who they are, and they are all wondering who will be the first to go. The election was three months ago. None of them have been let go.”

What is she talking about?

Is it her position that only those who have praised Trump should be allowed to speak?

It’s been an ongoing thing with Trump and his people versus the media.

I’ve said it here before, and I will continue to say it: When you have a leader who wants to be the source and sole voice the people hear from, you should worry.
And perhaps Team Trump might find it has underestimated some of its fellow Republicans, at least just a little bit.




    "Top Republicans denounced Trump's Muslim ban on the trail. Now they support his executive order."

    When faced with Constiuent protests, they run away,

    1. Thanks for the links, Jay. I will check them out.

  2. "I've said it here before and I'll continue to say it:" When you have a leader who wants to be the source and sole voice the people hear from, you should worry."

    Pierre Trudeau said something along the same lines Lorne when he was asked, "How badly do you want to be Prime Minister." His answer was "Not badly." He then went on to say."That's one quotation, I can give you another one from Plato." "Men who want very badly to lead the country shouldn't be trusted."

    It was said during one his campaigns, I don't know for which election.

    1. Trudeau's comments are very pertinent, Pamela, for the troubled and fractured times we are living in.
