Within the last 24 hours, a plethora of headlines have highlighted the implosion of Trump’s Republican Party into a corrupt, intellectually and morally burnt-out case, with nothing positive to offer America. Trump, with his speech in Montana, shows every sign of being unhinged. And the speech is simply the latest of a growing pattern of flagrant lies and false claims. It’s no longer a Republican swamp. It’s a Republican sewer.
But, Georgians, note this: your Republican Congressional delegations in Washington are swimming happily in this sewer. Our Senators, Representatives, and their staffs remain among the most slavish lackey supporters of Donald Trump. They are eagerly helping Trump to wage his war against America’s basic moral and democratic values, against God’s Commandments, against Jesus’ Golden Rule, and against common human decency.
But let’s get specific. IndieDems provides below the headlines that will lead you to articles that provide sentence by sentence and paragraph by paragraph the facts about the debased Republican agenda and its debased supporters.
As you read, remember this: the following Republicans endorse every word and deed that is being condemned:
- Senator Johnny Isakson and his Chief of Staff Joan Karr and Immigration Legislative Assistant Michael Black.
- Senator David Perdue and his COS Derrick Dickey and Immigration LA Drew Robinson
- Rep. Karen Handel and her COS Muffy Day and Immigration LA Elisabeth Conklin
- Rep. Barry Loudermilk and his COS Rob Adkerson and Homeland Security LA Susannah Johnston
What human being could listen to a President of the United States in a public speech insult George H.W. Bush and John McCain, call a U.S. Senator “Pocahontas” and then devote hundreds of words to discussing how, in a debate, he is going to have her DNA tested—and not conclude that the President is unhinged? All the people listed above, that’s who.
In a speech July 5 in Montana, Donald Trump mocked or insulted: John McCain, former President George H.W. Bush and his Points of Light, the #MeToo movement, Elizabeth Warren, and Maxine Waters. He did not attack the latter two for their policies. He leveled a racist slur at Warren and a personal insult at Waters. In the same speech, he praised Vladimir Putin—a now consistent Republican policy of attacking friends and allies and decent people, while heaping praise on Putin, Kim Un Jong, and fascists copying Nazi parades by marching through the streets of Charlottesville bearing torches and chanting “Jews will not replace us.”
These reports of the Trump Administration’s continued chaos and confusion in reuniting the kidnapped refugee children with their families—including an inability to provide accurate numbers—surfaced on the same day that Trump delivered his Montana diatribe. Look at the names of the Republicans above. They give not a damn about what this shows about the state of their debased and incompetent rule.

“The most dishonest and corrupt administration in about a century is only marginally improved by the departure of Pruitt.” A conservative columnist speaks. Georgia’s elected Republican and their staff remain speechless, clear evidence of their acceptance of massive corruption.
