Schiff: America Has One ‘Functional Party and a Cult of Personality Around Donald Trump’

Pam Key 21 Feb 2021

House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said Sunday on MSNBC’s “Weekends” that America has “one functional party and a cult of personality around Donald Trump,” referring to the Democratic and Republican Parties, respectively.

Reacting to a video of  House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) being asked if he acknowledged President Joe Biden as the “legitimate president of the United States,” Schiff said, “This is the number two Republican in the House, and he has difficulty saying that Joe Biden was elected in a free and fair election because he doesn’t want to antagonize Donald Trump and his base, notwithstanding the fact that Donald Trump incited a violent attack on our Capitol, these republican leaders are still in his thrall.”

He continued, “Steve Scalise made the same pilgrimage Kevin McCarthy did to Mar-a-Lago to kiss the ring, to once again pledge fealty to Donald Trump. They have tied their wagon to this amoral now former president. It’s a terrible thing for the Republican Party, but it’s also a tragedy for the country. We need two functional parties. Right now, we only have one functional party and a cult of personality around Donald Trump.”

MSNBC really needs to adjust their ending credits visuals.....

I display the Confederate Battle Flag in honor of my great great great grandfathers who spilled blood at Wilson's Creek and Shiloh.  5 others served in the WBTS with honor too.

If the Rodents were functional party, why did they have to stage a coup last November?
The GOP is not the party leadership.  The GOP is the party MEMBERSHIP.   The members need to kick the leaders out if they leaders are going the wrong way.  No coddling allowed.

Rats and rat media toads are just too determined to force everyone to validate Biden's "election" for it to be legit.

This is not how honest people behave.

Honest people don't vote for Democrats.

In actuality, we have two semi-functional political parties: one is half-committed to saving the American Republic; the other is largely committed to destroying it. 
To hell with every single one of these bastards who are creating a moral permission slip for anarchists and other criminals and thugs to destroy our country as we know it.

...hmmm  for the most part I agree, but I see that at most one-fourth is committed to saving this Republic and the rest do not care as long as they can line their pockets, and/or are largely committed to destroying her.

GOD Bless America, have mercy upon this country and stop the evil that has a stranglehold on our Republic from prevailing.

I can't really disagree with Schiff here, bug-eyed loon that he might be.

The demo-communists ARE "a functioning party". They may be corrupt. They are certainly heading for "full communist". They may have constructed an "underground election apparatus" (is there any question that it didn't work as intended?) capable of stealing the presidential election.

But they are functioning, no doubt about it.

It's the Republicans who seem (as a party) to be falling apart right now.
How well did the Republican state legislatures "function" in the face of cheating in 4 or 5 of their states last November? How did those Republicans in charge down in Georgia "function" in the days prior to and after the Georgia runoffs in January?

A "cult of personality" around Mr. Trump?
Perhaps. I have no problems with that. None at all.
It's gonna take one or more "strong personalities" to thwart the communists in the days (and years) to come...

Trump never had a cult of personality.   He probably wanted one.   But nah.... never had it.

Now this, on the other hand.... is definitely called a cult of personality....

which I also call stuckonstupid....

After sabotaging Trumps term in office for four years and more, Shifty shift is trying to say President Trump was treated like a cultist god like the left tried to deify slick willy, and Obama ?  Talk about taking a reach, but democrats do love to cast away their wickedness over and onto Republicans.
