After Jan 6th, the GOP had a golden opportunity to rid itself of Trump. They could have impeached him. They could have made him an outcast. However, they punted, going for short term political gain with the Trump base, rather than doing the right thing for the country. Now, they have to live with the consequences. Moderates like Haley, Romney, Cheney, Sasse, etc. are shunned at the CPAC, or even singled out by Trump in an attempt of revenge. On the other hand, the Trump train seems to be moving even further to the fringe, and to full blown Trumpism. Who are the ones who now control the party? Trump puppets who do his bidding. In other words, the 2024 GOP front runners, aside from Trump himself, are DeSantis, Hawley, Don Jr., Noem and Cruz. Seemingly, Trump is fully calling the shots as to who will have a chance and who will be cast aside. The party has now fully become the Trump party. Isn't is sad when loyalty to a man supersedes loyalty to the country? Even more sad that the party fully embraces a man who openly tried to overthrow a lawful election. One could only imagine what would happen if Trump would get another chance in 2024.
