If the final 4 years of the Republican social gathering have been to be made right into a film, it might simply fall underneath the sci-fi “Final Human on Earth” subcategory – which incorporates the likes of Invasion of the Physique Snatchers, Omega Man, and any zombie film. The plot entails some type of bigger drive snatching human minds, one after the other, zapping all important pondering expertise till just one or a number of people are left, the remaining having fallen prey to senseless – or hive-minded – monsters. The Republicans at the moment are residing in such a film, with only a few impartial GOP thinkers left standing. GOP Maryland Governor Larry Hogan is one such survivor.
On Monday, CNN’s Jake Tapper requested Hogan (beginning 4:20), “I preserve hoping in your social gathering to rejoin us on planet Earth – what is going on on?”
“I preserve hoping that as properly,” Hogan mentioned. “I can not actually clarify what is going on on, Jake. I imply it is simply pure lunacy. The type of factor I have been talking out towards ever since President Trump was elected. However this has gotten simply out of hand.”
“Look, we’re not going to win elections sooner or later,” Hogan continued. “We’re not going to be a majority social gathering, we’re not going to win again the Senate, the Home or the White Home if we proceed to go down this loopy highway of conspiracy theories and lies. I imply, we have to get again to actuality.”
But when actual life is something like the films, Hogan and his human comrades do not stand a lot of an opportunity.
