A “spinectomy” has been performed on a large portion of the GOP.
A “spinectomy” (as performed by Donald Trump) removes the spine from normal GOP persons along with partial portions of their frontal brain lobes. This procedure allows GOP members to walk and talk but renders them incapable of making rational judgments regarding the daily irrational and immoral actions of Trump.
Squeaker Paul Ryan is a great example of Trump’s “spinectomy” skills. Ryan is MIA when it comes to a rational moral leadership of the House and defense of our Constitution. There is nothing that Trump can do or say that will cause condemnation and/or action from Ryan. His strongest reprimand is some carefully worded statement like “unfortunate choice of words,” “morally ambiguous,” “needs to do better,” “it's not helpful.”
These are words you say to your 6-year-old, not a morally challenged president. On second thought, perhaps Trump is emotionally equivalent to a 6-year-old.
And then there is Sen. Ron Johnson. Johnson recently donned his tin-foil hat and rushed onto FOX News to say that an informant had personally told him about a “secret society” within the FBI that was attempting to bring down Trump. Later, his wife probably told him how stupid that sounded, and then Johnson modified his statement.
Trump’s payoff to a porn actress comes to light and Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council (a family values organization) gives Trump “a mulligan!"
Folks, you just can’t make this stuff up.
