“I worth loyalty above all the things else—greater than brains, greater than drive and greater than vitality,”
Donald Trump, Politico 2018
The self-destructive nature underlying Trump’s obsession with loyalty over brains and vitality has by no means been extra uncovered than in Trump’s endorsement of Herschel Walker for the Republican Senate seat from Georgia. Merely put, Herschel Walker is as near unelectable as a Republican can get in Georgia. Match Walker towards a person who even probably the most cynical diehard MAGA voters will begrudgingly agree is an effective man, Sen. Rev. Ralph Warnock, and Mitch McConnell begins the 2022 race for the US Senate at minus one, a seat that might’ve been his if all the things had been dealt with accurately, misplaced as a result of it was “dealt with by Trump” and, particularly, pushed by Trump’s fixation on loyalty.
How dangerous is it? Here’s a clip from Warnock’s new advert that catches Herschel Walker speaking to Glenn Beck about an aerosol mist (Maybe one he wished to market) that kills COVID as folks enter a constructing.
“Proper now, you realize what, I’m gonna say one thing I in all probability shouldn’t.
“Are you aware proper now, I’ve one thing that may deliver you right into a constructing that might clear you from Covid as you stroll by this dry mist? As you stroll by the door, it’s going to kill any Covid in your physique.
“If you go away, it’s going to kill the virus as you permit. This right here product — they don’t wish to speak about that. They don’t wish to hear about that.”
Amazingly, there’s probably such a mist. It may very well be known as bleach or perhaps a cool blue gentle known as UV Gentle that zaps your whole physique as you enter and exit a constructing, such a tool might do a whole lot of what Herschel’s speaking about. After all, we all know that any good it did is ruined the minute you exhale, however once more, Trump stated he values loyalty over brains, so that you don’t get to rely that towards Walker.
That is what a fixation on “loyalty” will get you, an advert that’s so totally devastating it might finish the race:
If Trump had been prepared to think about just some different qualities alongside loyalty, ones that add as much as a greater candidate, Georgia was in play. Because it stands? Walker is as unelectable as Republicans get in Georgia.
