Donald Trump seems to be stomping through the competition and destroying the GOP on his way to what appears to be an eventual nomination to run for President. So much so that Seth Myers actually compared him to a dinosaur, either the Tri-hair-atops Rex or the Bronze-asaurus, and the GOP to confused Jurrasic Park staffers realizing that they have created an unstoppable juggernaut.
The Republican party, famous for cutting education dollars and fighting science and facts of any kind being taught in schools, has spent many years cultivating a base of voters fed on fear, corralled by religion, built up with prideful racism, nationalism, xenophobia, and raised in ignorance. To the conservative’s absolute horror, they appear to have succeeded far too well in creating a terrified, uneducated, and easily led voter pool. Now the realization that Donald Trump’s perfect blend of used-car-salesman willingness to say anything and skeevy business-man (lack of) ethics worked perfectly to hijack the unstable GOP voters is really sinking in.
Seth Myers explores the GOP’s epically YUGE problem: they wanted an oligarchy, and a fascist fell perfectly into the mindset they created for their people. Republicans are starting to distance themselves from Trump, because he is horrifying, especially because of his hesitation to denounce David Duke, former Grand Wizard of the KKK, because tacitly allowing the hate group to exist is ok — but the GOP absolutely must maintain the appearance of rejecting the KKK regardless of the fact their values are pretty much exactly the same.
The problem with Donald Trump, he doesn’t enforce nor even attempt to model the “nice,” ethical behaviors that the GOP has made a passable attempt at showing the world for the last 50 or so years. Apparently their base is tired of pretending to give a sh*t about anyone but themselves, if their Super Tuesday votes are any indication. However, the GOP isn’t ready to admit their role in creating the monster breeding ground that produced the Fascist Bronze-asaurus that is currently ripping apart what was left of the (now) Grand Obstructionist Party.
