“These former members of Congress cited Trump’s corruption, destruction of democracy, blatant disregard for moral decency, and urgent need to get the country back on course as a reason why they support Biden,” the Biden campaign said in its announcement. “These former members of Congress are supporting Joe Biden because they know what’s at stake in this election and that Trump’s failures as president have superseded partisanship.”

Jeff Flake, other former GOP Congress members endorse Biden ahead of RNC




Former senator Jeff Flake joins the list of republicans denouncing Trump.

John Bolton, Trump's National Security Advisor for a year, says Trump is an "empty suit" and when he votes, he'll write someone other than Trump in.

General Jim Mattis, Trump's Secretary of Defense for two years, says "Trump is a threat to the Constitution."

Being against Trump means actually having principles, means actually living up to the lofty proclamations And endless ramblings during the Obama Era about sliding into tyranny.

So most won’t.

Imagine being a pre-Tea Party Republican and watching White Supremacists, fascists and Qanon take over your party.

It’s just...

I dunno man...

A lot of people who voted for this guy, who voted for Republicans are about to get slapped with a heavy dose of reality and they still won’t actually get it.

Mark my words, in the next 1-4 weeks, evictions are about to become the next phase of this campaign and the next hot button issue, it’s going to reach biblical proportions and many of those people, are still going to believe Trumpism And Republicans are the answer.

When a decorated, true American Patriot such as Jim Mattis comes forth and tells Americans that " Trump is a threat to the Constitution", only a fool would dismiss such dire and important words.

Funny how for years anytime one of these RINOs was called out for being a fake republican we were told that we should vote for that RINO because its better to get 50%, 60% or 70% of what you want than nothing at all and that no candidate is pure and that we were extremist for expecting a perfect republican canidate to vote for. And now these **** sucking fake republicans are showing their true colors by voting for Biden.No actual republican is voting for Biden because a vote for Biden is a vote for every law Biden is going to enact that republicans hate. A vote for Biden is a vote for every judge he is going to appoint that is going to uphold laws republicans hate and strike down laws republican like.

ANd RINOs were telling us for years that we should vote for them while leftwingers were calling us extremist for pointing out that these are fake republicans. And now those same RINOs want us to vote for Someone they know for a fact is going to enact all the laws republicans hate as well has appoint judges who are going to uphold all the laws republicans hate and strike down all the laws republicans love.

He's a far better choice for real Republicans than a guy who has been part of the Democrat swamp for a half a century

The Tea Party was downright lucid compared to Qanon. And it will get worse. Eventually Qanon will look upon the thing that comes after them and they're going to say, "Whoah, these guys be nuts."

A vote for Biden is a vote to destroy the constitution and country. A vote for Biden is vote for everything the republicans are against. Trump isn't perfect and I don't think anyone said he was.

What is a RINO?

Of course I would never recommend this for the general election, but if I was a Republican, I would have voted for Mitt Romney for one reason. You can all figure out why.

If I was a Republican, I also would still vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris anyway.

Trump was a Democrat all of those 50 years. Are you sure he is not a fake Republican?

I didn't see Romney on that list; did I just miss it or is NBC/Biden campaign slipping a bit? If Flake is the highest profile R that they can put in the headline, it doesn't really mean that much.

I'm not impressed with Flake. When he was in the senate, he'd hand-wring about how awful Trump was being, and then he'd vote for whatever Trump wanted regardless.

"A thousand people are dying every day.

This has been true for many, many, years. Death comes for us all. But hey, throw all the bovine feces on the wall, and see what sticks to Trump. Great strategy.

There is anarchy in the streets.

In Democrat run cities. HMMM... Blame Trump!

Millions of people are out of work.

Due to government mandated shutdowns. Mandated by local government officials. Blame Trump!

Millions more are now homeless.

Due to government mandated shutdowns. Mandated by local government officials. Blame Trump!

The Post Office no longer works.

I am getting my mail. And my mail is going out. False narrative, this one. Oh wait, that is your thing.

Trump 2020.

Hey - you got something right at the end. Good for you!

Trump made the decision to ignore the pandemic because he thought it was a blue state problem. That resulted in 180,000 people dying, the economy to crater, and the rest of the planet barring us from entering their countries.

Turns out that taking the duties of your office seriously actually matters.

Trump was a New York democrat up until recently.

He saw a path to the presidency and it required that he change to republican so he did.
