Trump screwed them.

It’s certainly no secret that Donald Trump has made a complete and utter mess out of things lately. And according to Associated Press White House correspondent Jonathan Lemire, during a segment on MSNBC’s Morning Joe with hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brezinski, key GOPers are reportedly “terrified” that Trump’s recent outburst and refusal to participate in the remaining president debates has effectively pushed a MAGA win even further out of reach and destroyed their already waning chances in the upcoming election, possibly ruining their ability to hold on to the Senate majority.

Lemire explained during the segment that Trump’s refusal to participate in any further debates unless they’re face to face handed Democrats a serious victory.

“He’s frustrated with the state of the race,” the White House correspondent said. “He knows he’s trailing and he has been deprived of running the campaign he wants because the pandemic has overshadowed everything else.”

“There’s real second-guessing about his decision to blow up the second debate, suggesting if his campaign had initially just suggested a postponement like where they eventually said, ‘hey, let’s have two debates but push them back a week,’ therefore to allay any sort of health concerns maybe the debate commission and the Biden camp would have gone for that,” Lemire continued. “By saying initially we don’t want to do it, we’re going to pull out of the potential remote debate, it gave the Biden camp no incentive to agree. The Biden camp was able to say, ‘hey, we’re sticking to the schedule.'”

He added, “We certainly know as the last point, Republicans terrified that the bottom might be dropping out. A depression in enthusiasm among the Trump base which might not only sink him in the White House but absolutely bring the Senate down with him.”

It seems that Trump’s sycophantic Republicans are beginning to realize that the MAGA ship is sinking and they’re all about to drown with it like the rats they are.
