This was followed by longtime US Senator from Iowa Chuck Grassley, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, Mariannette MillerMeeks (Iowa Rep.) And Ashley Hinson were among the other Republican leaders. These same people nine months ago criticized Trump’s involvement in the Capitol riots. But they are now supporting Trump. It is politics at its worst – and at its most dangerous for our democracy, “said Obeidallah.
Trump was not his biggest problem at the rally, but the politicians who came to support him.
“You don’t have to be a historian to recognize the danger of a political party showing blind loyalty to a person. These elected representatives of the GOP rightly condemned Trump several months ago for his involvement in the bogus election claims that led to the January 6 attack. With their presence at his rally this weekend, it seems they have now changed their mind, ”continued Obeidallah’s complaint.
Trump’s favorability score among Republicans in Iowa is 91%.
“But who knows what Trump’s whim will be the next litmus test to stay in his good graces? Still Grassley, the longest-serving US senator from Iowa, thinks it is “smart” policy to stop criticizing Trump for his anti-American attack on our democracy and to congratulate him on his quest for an eighth mandate in the Senate, it is clear that the party is no longer defined by political ideas but by absolute loyalty to Trump and his influence. Frankly speaking, today’s GOP is the death of democracies, ”he concluded.
