Republicans, while not agreeing with the president, appear to want to pretend that what he is doing, if not exactly harmless, does not warrant their serious attention or a confrontation. They prefer to turn away, shake their heads about their president and hope that he stays focused on the issues on which he campaigned.
Hold them accountable for this, peeps. At the ballot boxes. If you can ever reach one again. Though I suppose the mail-in-ballot routine that Repubs so love will be left in place. Early voting will be the target.
