I have watched with interest, the ads run by the Republican Accountability PAC in which Trump voters in 2016 and 2020 express their concerns about his behavior and, even more important, his electibility.
To ensure their creds with Republican voters they say, they love Donald Trump and voted for him in 2016 and 2020.
My favorite is the very attractive blonde lady with the fashionable hat, carefully styled hair, and attractive summer outfit, in her garden. She says she loved Donald Trump and thought he put the country first, but in the current primary campaign he is putting himself first and attacking fellow Republicans.
I would like to entitle this ad and subsequent ads “wake up and smell the roses.”
Weren’t you paying attention in 2016 when Trump dished his rivals in the primaries.
Jeb Bush was “low energy Jeb,” Ted Cruz was, “Lyin’ Ted.”
On Fox and Friends, his favorite network in 2016, he stated “Everybody hates Ted Cruz.” He extended his attack to Ted’s wife Heidi by publishing an unflattering picture of her next to a glamor shot of Melania with the statement, “one picture is worth a thousand words.”
Marco Rubio was, “Little Marco,” Rand Paul a “Truly weird Senator. Rand Paul of Kentucky reminds me of a spoiled brat, without a properly functioning brain. He was terrible at DEBATE.”
Ben Carson was, “Super low energy.” Lindsey Graham, “One of the dumbest human beings I have ever seen.” Rick Perry, “He put on glasses so people will think he’s smart. And it just doesn’t work.”
He reserved his worst vitriol for the one female candidate, Carly Fiorina, “Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next President?”
So, if Republicans are surprised by Trump’s attacks on Governor Reynolds for not endorsing him, they really do need to wake up and smell the roses.
