As I’ve said before, the closest thing Trump has to a redeeming quality is his relentless humiliation of his most obsequious lickspittles, and turning on America’s Beloved COVID Governor he even stumbles into an insult that’s right on the merits:
Former president Donald Trump on Tuesday ripped into politicians who refuse to say if they’ve received a COVID-19 booster shot — a group that notably includes Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis.
“I’ve had the booster,” Trump told One America News Network in an interview. “Many politicians, I watched a couple of politicians be interviewed and one of the questions was, ‘Did you get the booster?’ Because they had the vaccine, and they’re answering like — in other words, the answer is ‘yes,’ but they don’t want to say it, because they’re gutless. You gotta say it, whether you had it or not, say it.”
One advantage of being a cult leader is that it makes you the one Republican who can accidentally tell the truth and not see your political career ruined over it.
