WATCH: Conservative Charlie Sykes Explains Why RNC’s 1/6 Comments are a Gift to Demoocrats

There are many in the Republican party who think Donald Trump is hurting the brand. The Republican National Committee, though, is entirely behind the former President. Not only is the RNC helping to pay Trump’s legal bills, but they are also helping to push his narrative that the 1/6 insurrection was no big deal. During a recent appearance on MSNBC, Charlie Sykes explained why that is a terrible strategy.

“All of this is in service of showing their loyalty to Donald Trump,” said the Conservative pundit. “So, they bought the ticket, and they’re now taking a ride. They become increasingly invested in revising — doing revisionist history of the insurrection. I mean, what you saw on Friday was the Republican National Committee fully embracing the insurrection, whitewashing it, turning it from, as you just saw, this violent attack on the U.S. Capitol — somehow into a peaceful protest of people who were legitimately protesting the election. This is not where the Republican Party wants to be in the midterms, but they’ve made this choice.”

Sykes continued:

“Every single Republican politician in the country needs to be asked: do you agree with Mike Pence or with Donald Trump? Do you support the censure of Adam Kinzinger or Liz Cheney or don’t you? You had a lot of flop sweat from Marco Rubio because these are tough questions but the question of Pence or Trump is a yes or no question and I think it is going to be very difficult for Republicans to dance their way around it, which is of course what they desperately want to do.”
