Dozens of Republicans in Congress are now tacitly moving on from Donald Trump by voting in favor of the increased stimulus package while ignoring Trump’s demands about sideshow things being added to the legislation. But among those Republicans still propping Trump up, they’re doing it more loudly – and stupidly – than ever.
The Arizona Republican Party tweeted this image of Donald Trump last night:
As numerous observers on social media have pointed out, Trump is pretty clearly being depicted as infamous traitor Benedict Arnold:
How ironic that Donald Trump's supporters dressed him up just like the man whose name is synonymous with being a traitor, Benedict Arnold.

That’s right, Trump’s remaining supporters tried to dress him up like an American war figure, but they picked Benedict Arnold because they don’t know anything about America – or maybe they want him to commit treason. Either way, this is just embarrassing.
