MINOT, N.D. — “The election was fair, as fair as we have seen. We simply did not win the election, as Republicans, for the presidency,” Republican Sen. Mike Rounds of South Dakota told ABC News during a recent interview.
Not so long ago saying such a thing would not be an act of courage. But in today’s GOP, where many Republicans content themselves to be sock puppets for disgraced former President Donald Trump, it is.
Rounds was promptly attacked by Trump and his various surrogates in a pathetic commentary on what the Republican Party has become. “Is he crazy or just stupid?” a characteristically juvenile Trump asked in his response.
