Bannon reportedly called House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) “a limp-dick motherfucker who was born in a petri dish at the Heritage Foundation,” referring to the think tank whose fiscal conservative policies the representative espouses.
Obviously Ryan is a lab experiment gone wrong, but what does his tumescence have to do with anything? Why can’t Paul Ryan be a degenerate creep who sees Ayn Rand’s face when he closes his eyes and still be able to maintain erections?
It’s gotten to the point where one can easily argue that Spicer at the very least is grossly incompetent.
And I don’t want to hear about him being a diversion. Likening concentration camps to giant Nazi Targets with “Holocaust Center” in block letters emblazoned on the front of the building is so laughably absurd that I literally had to make sure I was not tripping acid before accepting what he said as reality.
Personally, I think Trump has kept Spicer around to appease GOP brass and not look weak by firing his administration’s senior media White House official.
There’s also the possibility that Spicey’s clung to the gig so long because his gaffes are distractive explosions across all platforms of media.
Remember when Neil Gorsuch was sworn in to the Supreme Court?
If Trump could just be ousted, replacing him with Pence would be a more than satisfactory solution for the establishmentarians. In their eyes, the crisis will have passed. But among the Trump faithful a “stab-in-the-back” narrative will immediately supplant their previous triumphal glory. He went to D.C. to drain the swamp, they’ll say, but instead his eviscerated corpse was found floating in it. Remember how concerned people were about what the frothing crowds of Trump fans would do if their candidate lost? How do you think the movement will react after they’ve tasted victory?
Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell are certainly aware of this dilemma. So they wait in the wings, hoping this crisis or that crisis will eventually ruin Trump, and gritting their teeth as each day the party goes a little more off course.
