RALEIGH – The Leftist owners of the Capitol Broadcasting Company (CBC) are out with an official CBC opinion piece framing lawmakers that support President Donald Trump as morally debased cult members. This is the same CBC that equated Trump to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un about a year ago.
Included in the very rich admonition of Republicans that support Trump and his agenda are some glaring inaccuracies that make Trump cheerleaders out of some of his biggest Republican detractors in Congress.
“In the United States loyalty to a president isn’t blind.
You might not know that by the way leaders of North Carolina’s congressional delegation act these days.
Is there anything that our senators Thom Tillis and Richard Burr — along with some others in the delegation – wouldn’t do because our current president wants it?
President Donald Trump’s administration – with its demand for loyalty and obedience – has turned leaders of the congressional delegation into cult followers – akin to 21st century “Moonies.”
This behavior is not helping them, North Carolina or the nation. They should be ashamed. […]”
The idea that Senators Thom Tillis and Richard Burr are Trump loyalists is laugh-out-loud funny. The latter literally just gave the green light to subpoenaing Don Trump Jr., an a nonsensical extension of the Russian/Trump myth and in direct contradiction to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s wishes. The former has directly contested the president on illegal immigration (amnesty sponsor, ‘Wall’ resister), foreign aid, and penned a WaPo op-ed decrying the president’s declaration of a national emergency on the border.
Are the leaders at CBC even paying attention? This labeling of Tillis and Burr as Trump sycophants is probably a case of projection; it is the people running CBC that practice their own fealty to anti-Trump hysteria, what’s know as Trump Derangement Syndrome. It affects them so completely, that they believe Tillis and Burr to be Trump champions when any dispassionate observer knows that are nothing of the sort.
The editorial goes on to describe North Carolina’s Republican congressional delegation as “mesmerized by Trump” as the reason for their support of the president, seemingly unaware that it is their very constituency’s support of the president’s agenda that encourages their support where it happens. Tillis did not infamously reverse himself on the national emergency declaration because he was under the spell of Trump; he did so, transparently, in reaction to the blow back from voters as he approached a tough reelection campaign.
