Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) has called Donald Trump “America’s Winston Churchill.” On August 20 he tweeted @sendavidperdue a fawning accolade of Trump that clinches his position as our dumbest Senator.
“In my business career, I learned the tone at the top matters. @POTUS has demonstrated that he takes seriously his job to uphold & defend the Constitution of the United States. He’s fighting for all Americans.”
This, mind you, one day before Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty to violating laws at Trump’s direction, and his former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, was found guilty on eight counts of felony law violations.
I’m pleased to report that Perdue’s total flight from reality produced, by my count, over one hundred comments—only two of which expressed approval.
The frightening aspect of Perdue’s words, of course, is their demonstration of the almost total separation from reality—the Alternate Universe—in which Trump’s supporters exist. We can only hope that the Republicans’ growing success in slitting their own throats will help defeat them in the November elections.
