John Bolton has announced he will challenge Trump for the Republican nomination in 2024. Now Bolton will not win. But neither will Trump, who will likely be indicted by then. This is political drama at its best. But it’s worth a story because I have a theory I would like to share. Before I do so — here are some more details about what Bolton said.

Bolton, while speaking to Good Morning America, said his focus would be foreign policy. He wants to be tougher on Russia and china. He also sees Trump’s influence as waning. He also, I suspect, wants another book deal. And perhaps he wants to see Donald trump — his old nemesis squirm a bit.

But this brings me to something that many have been whispering about lately. And, of course, we’re seeing it play out with the Kevin McCarthy vote. There really are not two political parties in America anymore. There are three. There are the Democrats.

There are the moderate Republicans. And there are the anarchists. The anarchists consist of people like Trump, Greene, Gaetz, Biggs, and many others. And they will undoubtedly want their 2024 presidential candidate to be an insurrectionist and election denier.

Only the moderates will likely want someone normal—some Republican moderates are moving away from trump in subtle ways. And that is what I am talking about. I am talking about the no-win situation for the GOP. The two parts of the GOP have already collided, and if you think this is something, you ain’t seen anything yet!

Wait till the GOP has to nominate a presidential candidate. Wait for the crazy because the two different factions will eat each other alive while, once again, we Democrats remain, as always, the party of unity.
