They are not inept or timid liars.  And they are not nearly as accomplished as Donald Trump. Still, everyday Republican politicians who, like Trump, lie directly into the face of their base, do so with great effect at winning over an endless supply of wannabe Republicans.

For example, the GOP whopper that ‘trickle down’ economics is good for the working man has been told and retold by countless Republican politicians for more than 50 years. It is the all time GOP favorite fable.  And the GOP base (all Richie Rich wannabes) absolutely loves that legendary tale.

Trump Republicans, command respect and boast great authority among their wannabes.  And remarkably these grifting politicians who preach their strange GOP truths directly into the face of their faithful, never, ever suffer a pang of conscience.  And should you ask, how is that possible?  Republicans will respond to you with one of their most reliable and prayerful sermons. ‘Debt is evil. God is with us.’  And the wannabe base will shout, “Amen.” 

Case in point: As of this date, on the Bloomberg TV airwaves, just one day after the US Treasury announced trillion dollar annual federal deficits from here to eternity, thanks to Trump’s Richie Rich tax bill, Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell discovered the new federal debt and he blamed that evil debt on “… a bipartisan unwillingness to contain spending on MEDICARE, MEDICAID AND SOCIAL SECURITY…”  And the wannabe base  shouted, “Amen.”

Now, how great is that – a Republican politician condemning the evil debt of MEDICARE, MEDICAID AND SOCIAL SECURITY?  How prayerful is that?  How patriotic and pious are Mitch and his fellow Republicans in their noble effort to bring down America’s ‘evil’ trillion dollar deficits by bringing down Medicare, Medicaid and  Social Security? Are they not true patriots?  Ought the base be proud and shout, “Amen!”

Republicans truly know this nation’s enemy.  And they are coming for that enemy.

Do you know the enemy?
