Raskin: GOP a Messianic Cult of ‘One-Man Crime Wave’ Trump

March 24, 2023

Thursday on MSNBC’s Alex Wagner Tonight, Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) said that the Republican Party had “turned into a messianic cult of personality around” former President Trump.

When asked about House Republicans requesting that Manhattan D.A. Alvin Bragg testify, Raskin said, “It’s clearly an attempt to elevate Donald Trump completely above the law, completely above the Constitution. And that’s what’s so scary about this.”

He continued, “That is what is so scary about this. The GOP has turned into a messianic cult of personality around one guy who has proven himself to be a one-man crime wave, and they have all wrapped themselves in their careers, their destinies around Donald Trump.”

Not true on a number of levels, not least of which is the claim that Trump has “proven” to be a criminal. Democrats have obsessed for years over trying to pin something, anything on Trump and come up empty-handed every time. He’s been out of office for two years now and they’re still obsessed with taking him down.

Raskin added, “The emperor has no clothes at any level. During the impeachment trial, the rhetoric of all the Republicans was, ‘Well, if there is a real problem, you don’t need to impeach and convict him. Just prosecute him when he leaves office.’ That’s fine. Now all the prosecutors are saying that there are these criminal offenses we want to investigate and they’re saying, ‘How dare you prosecute a former president. Someone that’s put himself forward to run for president again.’ They will devise any argument to try to guarantee the total immunity and impunity of one Donald Trump.”

What hypocrisy. The Biden crime family is demonstrably the most corrupt presidential family in history — topping even the Clintons, but Democrats will, to paraphrase Raskin, “devise any argument to try to guarantee Biden’s total immunity and impunity.” Raskin is a liar and propagandist, which is why the leftist media parade him so often before the cameras.
