In 2016, there were a number of candidates for the Republican nomination. Some were establishment politicians like Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz. Others, like Carly Fiorina and Ben Carson were coming from outside of Washington DC.Another establishment politician, told his party that, “If we nominate Donald Trump, we will be destroyed.” Still the party persisted and made Donald Trump the nominee. And the president’s constant railing against the election has some worried that it could cost the party in Georgia. During a Sunday interview on MSNBC, contributor Jennifer Rubin declared that Trump is the “Republican’s problem now.”
The Washington Post reporter told Joy Reid, “I think it’s somewhat ridiculous and it’s also a good test for the media, frankly,” Rubin responded. “There is absolutely no bigger story than the inauguration of Joe Biden and no one should cover Trump’s [ inaudible]. This is pathetic — jumping up and down, ‘me, me, me.”
“In point of fact he is going to do all sorts of things and he is not the center of our political life anymore — he is not the story. I think Kamala Harris may have been amused that this is now Republicans’ problem to deal with. He is the one who is now going to be hanging like a dark cloud over the 2024 wannabes, so let them cope with him and they should ignore him thoroughly and get on with the business of governing the country.”
