Sometime around midnight on Tuesday night, Donald Trump decided to go on a social media bender about how much he hates Republican Senators John Cornyn and Mitt Romney. It didn’t make any sense, but this is what mentally unwell villains do on their way down: they incoherently fall apart. The kicker is that Trump then began sharing posts from his followers, which only ratcheted up the crazed attacks on Republican Senators.
As the night went on Trump shared posts that labeled Romney a “scumbag swamp creature” and Cornyn a “Globalist sellout traitor.” But Trump kept going, and by around one in the morning he’d shared a post calling Cornyn – we’re quoting here – a “Bitch McConnell boot licker.”
It’s more clear than ever that Donald Trump is simply a goner. There’s nothing left in his head – at least not anything coherent or sane. The guy is days or hours from being criminally indicted for the insurrection, and he’s focused on this kind of nonsense. It’s also particularly stupid to attack your remaining allies like Cornyn and McConnell at a time when you need all the help you can get.
