Here's why Republicans are afraid to criticize Donald Trump



The most important value in an ally for Donald Trump has always been loyalty — and many GOP lawmakers are starting to feel the effects of going against the former president. In the latest episode of The Point, CNN’s Chris Cillizza talks about how firm Trump’s hold remains on the GOP.

  1. Trump's numbers are not increasing, the number of registered republican are just decreasing, which why it makes percentage number go up, when they are really just staying the same.

  2. What I find interesting is while criticism of former President Trump is not tolerated, Trump's entire act is trash talking attacks. It is a criticism one way street.

  3. I heard every time you watch a CNN broadcast your i.q drops 5 whole points…. that must be why everyone I know who watches it started shitting their diapers again.

  4. Silence in the face of lies also defines how unpatriotic that Republican Party has become. They stand for nothing. They have no platform. They strive to Keep Trump Happy above all else. How pathetic.

  5. WHY WOULD THEY WANT TO BE LED BY THE WORLDS DUMBEST MAN…. WHEN THEY KNOW THAT EVERY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD KNOWS HE IS A DOOFUS … AND THEY ARE ALL LAUGHING AT THE U.S. ……. AND THEY SHOULD BE“!!!!

  6. I do not want Trump, but, I don't want Biden even more. Being an I independent lets me look at all parties and people running, they both STINK!!!! Open your eyes, this government on both sides has let us down stop voting party because mommy and daddy have always voted!!!!!

  7. 3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;
    4 neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. 5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. 7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them. –HOLY BIBLE
