Trumpster Diving

* “Trump seems unwilling to cooperate in fading away. A Republican Party that incorporates some of the changes he has wrought, moves on and succeeds is not in his interest. And even without a Twitter account, he has a flair for getting attention.”–Ramesh Ponnuru, National Review.

* “The 2020 presidential election was not stolen. Anyone who claims it was is spreading THE BIG LIE, turning their back on the rule of law, and poisoning our democratic system. … We Republicans need to stand for genuinely conservative principles and steer away from the dangerous and anti-democratic Trump cult of personality.”–Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., the No. 3 House Republican. Ironic upshot: a surnamed Cheney taking a bipartisan stand that’s truly America—not Trumpublicans–First.

* “I would just say to my Republican colleagues: Can we move forward without President Trump? The answer is no. I’ve determined we can’t grow without him.”–That was Sen. Lindsey Graham, who has been unable to grow a spine since trashing Trump as a “jackass,” a “kook,” “crazy” and–in case the aforementioned were too nuanced–“unfit for office.”

* “It’s becoming increasingly difficult, it seems, for people to go out on the stump and defend somebody like Liz Cheney or Mitt Romney.”–Former Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake.

* GOP: If viability and what’s in America’s best interest truly matter, look to Liz—not Lindsey.

* “The undisputed leader of the Republican Party.”–That was Rep. Matt Gaetz referencing Trump at the “America First Rally” roadshow/circus kick-off at, yes, The Villages.
