Right now it is just a few republicans in contention for the GOP presidential nomination. There’s trump and his fake candidacy. There is Nikki Haley, who stands no chance of winning. And then there are all the people EXPECTED to dive in. One of them is Tim Scott. of South Carolina.
Tim Scott is reportedly being urged to run by many a republican. And I can see why. He isn’t known to be as creepily alt-right as some of the others, although, in my humble opinion, he very much is. He just hides it. better.
But Tim Scott’s candidacy COULD be over before it begins, and I am not the only one saying this. This is because Scott has already broken one of the prime rules of republicans– don’t piss off Maga.
“We need to let this play out and see exactly what happens.”
“I think we should really, as opposed to rushing to judgment, the most important thing that we can do is let it play out.”
Who made this mystery quote, and when? It came from Tim Scott. And it came shortly after the FBI search of Mar-a-Lago. While many republicans were tongue-lashing the FBI, Scott cautioned common sense and waiting for the whole story.
That is NOT an answer that will pull Maga to his side, and THAT is what many are chattering about. You see, Scott — and any of the nominees need Maga. They need their support and their votes. Tim Scott will never get it, and anyone who thinks otherwise surely does not know Maga.
Maga loathes anyone who even makes a cursory effort of standing up for the FBI. In their twisted minds, everyone’s deep state. And now that Scott’s comments have been resurrected, you’d better believe HE is deep state, too — in the eyes of Maga.
Those two words will doom Scott’s candidacy. At least they will if we keep Scott’s comments in the spotlight, and we will. So will all the OTHER candidates gearing up for a run. I could be wrong. But in my opinion, Tim Scott is doomed before he even begins.
