These were some of Trump's comments and actions they overlooked and thus quietly condoned:
--His support of neo-Nazis and white supremacists.
--His hateful racist rhetoric.
--His vicious attack on federal judges.
--His repeated attacks on the American judicial system.
--Mocking a distinguished veteran because he was a prisoner of war.
--Firing the FBI director in an attempt to derail a criminal investigation into his own and family members' illegal behavior.
--Bragging about sexually assaulting women.
--Fabricating false charges against previous Presidents.
--Attacking the mayor of a major city in another nation.
These are only some of the items and Milbank includes many more. It's nothing short of repulsive how Republicans repeatedly put party loyalty before country and looked the other way.
Hopefully, the GOP will have a great comeupance in the 2018 midterms. They deserve every bad thing that happens to them.
