Liberals resisting a conservative president is par for the course, but where are GOP leaders? Why isn’t a “big time” leader rushing to the president’s aid in the wake of Russian-collusion accusations and other so-called scandals?
Fox News host Charles Payne asked the question, and Ken Blackwell, who served as a domestic policy adviser for President Donald Trump’s transition team, answered.
Quoting Benjamin Franklin’s play on words, Blackwell said if the GOP leaders don’t hang together with the president, they’ll hang separately. After the media are done with the president, they’ll come after the Republican majorities in Congress.
“This underscores something,” Blackwell said. “Donald Trump is a major disruptor of the status quo and business as usual. And my uncle used to always tell me, Charles: ‘Dogs don’t bark at parked cars.'”
Bucking against business as usual has caused a very powerful and sustained response from the opposition, Blackwell added. President Trump needs his party’s support.
