Politicians Owe Us Reason, Not Obedience
MINOT, N.D. — As the holiday season ended on Sunday, Congressman Kelly Armstrong announced that he would not be supporting efforts, backed by some of the most ardent Trump followers in his party, to meddle in the Electoral College vote.
Let’s hope Sens. John Hoeven and Kevin Cramer follow his lead.
I posted a column about the news on my social media feeds and was immediately met with a wave of anger from MAGA die-hards’ vocal faction.
Armstrong is a traitor, they claimed. A Republican-in-name-only. Many of the respondents suggested they’d be withholding their votes.
It was all a lot of sound and fury from a shrinking pool of Trump loyalists who can’t accept that the lame-duck president is a one-term loser and not the political mastermind playing four-dimensional chess they thought he was.
