  1. They let this beast grow, now it gets to eat them.

    • What he means they find a good market in Nationalist Socialism movement that has 74,222,958 storng support. This is America’s divorce we are watching. Lets see how DoD will do

    • @Steve Sh the democrats are mostly in concentrated areas while the Republicans have a huge amount of land mass .

    • @Grailer 💯 they think they live in “Rural” for quality of life and dont realize it is because nobody wants them around major population centers in North America

    • @Steve Sh Where do you think your food and water comes from 😂

    • @Grailer multinational and nationwide corporations dum dum. Not biblebelt. Your biggest custore China already replaced most of you. Enjoy your corns though 👍🏻🌽

  2. Oh are they constrained now? Well, then maybe they should stop placating these lunatics and their rage fantasies.

    Trump is threatening all with death if they do not obey him! Trump needs to go to jail for high treason!

      Trump`s cellmate will become the next candidate for Vice Presidency.

    • Stand up to that Bully cause Bullies don’t @#$* off until you do. Lock up Trump and his lies. The truth is that Trump is fighting for HIS life. HE is the LOSER. HE will go the jail. HE will have to pay his debts. HE will be known as the FOOL all around the Whole Wide World.

    • I think the penalty for treason is death…..?

    🤦🏻‍♀️ they support a sociopath because they need to keep the maganazis happy 🙄

    “Feel constrained” THAT is NO EXCUSE for destroying our republic.

    Just don’t pander to crazy people.

  8. Trump should be jailed for treason

  9. No they are constrained only by their lack of principles. Had they stood up to this clown from the start they would not be his lap dogs today

  10. Maybe they should just stick to their sworn oath to support and defend the Constitution instead of abandoning it. Just sayin’. The Constitution doesn’t provide for a choice to overthrow democracy to install an authoritarian regime.

    In other words they only care about keeping their job at any cost, and don’t give a crap about America or it’s people. They are all utterly corrupt, self serving pond life.

  12. Trump and his base are AGAINST EVERYTHING THAT AMERICA STANDS FOR ! How the frack is that “constraining” the Republican Party?

  13. Gilmore Mccoy | January 5, 2021 at 3:17 PM | Reply

    They swore under oath to uphold the US Constitution 🇺🇸 not to cow-tow to don-the-con’s base!

    They feel constrained?
    They are complicit!

  15. Perfect. The county is being held hostage by the bottom third of the nation’s collective high school class. The very most ignorant among us are calling the shots.

  16. The Venn diagram between Trump supporters and people who believe that pro wrestling is real, is ONE CIRCLE!

    Step 1: Find your backbone…

  18. Don’t make excuses for them … this is a stain they should carry for the rest of their lives. Acting in bad faith to support a seditious conspiracy.

  19. It’s nice that the GOP has finally pulled back the curtain and shown themselves to be the cowards we always figured them to be. Let’s capitalize on this moment Georgia. 😁

    They’re reaping what they sow. They deserve this fate, because it’s what they wanted, and I don’t pity the GOP for it. I will only hold them accountable for it.
