Schiff: GOP Has Become a ‘Cult’ to Trump’s Personality

April 8, 2020

Tuesday on MSNBC’s All In, Rep. Adam Schiff declared that the GOP has become a “cult” for President Trump, and their “silence in the face of this kind of incompetent response [to the coronavirus] is really deadly.”

“It gets back to something the president said when the Republicans first proposed the $500 billion fund with no oversight,” Schiff said. “He said, ‘I will be the oversight.’ That’s what President Trump wants. He wants the freedom to reward friends and punish enemies…”

“How do you hold that president accountable, and the answer in the past has been that Congress, on a bipartisan basis, would rise to defend the American people and their own institution,” he continued. “But here one of the parties has become a cult to the president’s personality, and in the wake of these bloodlettings, bloodletting of inspector generals, the response from the GOP in Congress has been nothing but silence. And silence in the face of this kind of incompetent response is really deadly, and the country needs to demand more of their representatives.”

The country needs to demand more of the do-nothing, blame-Trump Democrats.
