Donald Trump’s 4 year presidency was filled with near non-stop controversy. And reporters were eager to ask Republican lawmakers about his actions. The GOP reps, however, frequently demurred, saying that if Trump was doing something wrong, the voters would cast him out of his office.
A few weeks ago, the bill for Trump’s actions came due. The incumbent president lost his reelection bid by over 6 million votes. Trump is still, however, being enabled by feckless Republican senators. Chris Hayes ripped these lawmakers on Friday night saying that it’s clear that the voters have decided his fate.
The MSNBC host began, “Despite how overwhelmingly clear it is that Joe Biden will be the next president, the current shame of the Republican party is the almost-universal silence about what the voters have decided.”
Hayes continued, “The vast majority of national Republican leaders continue to drag their heels, many have become complicit participants in Trump’s feeble attempt to subvert the election.”
The host then played a clip of numerous Republicans calling for the American voters to cast judgement on Donald Trump. He closed the segment by saying, “Okay. We had one. We had an election. The voters decided. And so, now all those senators… be showing some deference, some respect for the decision. I mean, they told us this was the thing to do, and we went out and did it, and now what? Now what?!”
