Donald Trump is nothing if not vengeful. He never forgets anyone who has ever said so much as one critical word about him, and as we have seen, he is capable of carrying on feuds for years on end if he is so inclined. It doesn’t matter who you are – if you do not show unwavering loyalty to Trump, he will make sure you pay in the end. Therefore it comes as no surprise that Trump’s “enemies” – those in the GOP who dared to speak out against him during his disgraceful campaign and refused to vote for him – are now in The Donald’s crosshairs.
According to Politico, Trump is now planning to spend millions to unseat GOP Senators who he has declared his enemies. At the top of this list is Jeff Flake of Arizona, who never endorsed Trump, did not vote for him, and was sharply critical during Trump’s campaign. People who know of conversations that happened during Trump’s many controversies during the election season say that Trump wants to spend at least $10 million out of his personal bank account to go after Flake, who is up for re-election in 2018.
Another one who might be in trouble is Alabama’s Rep. Martha Roby. She was one of many who ran as far as she could away from Trump after the Washington Post released the infamous “grab ’em by the p*ssy” video last October, in which Trump bragged to then-Access Hollywood host Billy Bush about sexually assaulting women and getting away with it. During that firestorm, Roby said that Trump was “unacceptable” for the presidency. Since Trump won, Roby has been sucking up, taking special trips to the White House, and even taking meetings with Ivanka. Roby is currently being primaried by a brainwashed Trumpkin in her district, in which the racists down there love Trump.
These people aren’t the only ones, either. People within the White House who wanted Trump gone circa Access Hollywood, such as Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, are always having to be on their toes, because Trump is a man who once crossed never really trusts the person who did the crossing again.
All in all, this may be the best thing to happen to Democrats in 2018 and beyond. If the GOP rips itself in half because Trump is running negative ads all in the name of settling personal scores, they just might hand us Congress. If that isn’t a motivator to VOTE BLUE in 2018, I don’t know what is.
