Trump Unleashes His Inner Insult Comic: RINO Roast at the Capitol

Watertown NY 04.01.2024 Written by Hans Wilder

Hey there, folks! Gather ’round for another episode of “As the Political Circus Turns.” So, picture this: Donald Trump, the man who never met a Twitter feud he didn’t like, decides to take a swing at two retiring Republican House members, Fred Upton and John Katko. And oh boy, did he swing!

In typical Trump fashion, he didn’t hold back, calling them “cowards and weaklings.” Now, I don’t know about you, but I always find it fascinating when one politician starts name-calling another. It’s like a playground fight, but with bigger words and way higher stakes.

Now, Trump’s not one to shy away from throwing around labels, and this time he busted out the classic “RINO” card – that’s Republican In Name Only, for those not in the know. It’s like a political insult bingo, and Trump’s got a full card.

But let’s back up a bit. Upton and Katko have been on Trump’s naughty list for a while now. Upton actually voted to impeach him back in 2021, and Katko joined the “Impeach Trump” club after the whole January 6 Capitol debacle. So, you can imagine, Trump’s not exactly sending them Christmas cards.

Now, the reason these two are hitting the road, they say, is they want to make way for “new blood” in Congress. Sure, that might be part of it, but let’s not kid ourselves – their disagreements with Trump probably played a role too. It’s like when you leave a job and say it’s for “personal reasons” when really it’s because your boss drives you up the wall.

But here’s where it gets interesting. Trump’s tirade against Upton and Katko couldn’t come at a more awkward time for the GOP. They’re already doing the political equivalent of trying to juggle flaming torches on a tightrope, and now Trump’s throwing bowling balls into the mix.

As we gear up for the midterm elections, it’s anybody’s guess how Trump’s drama will play out for the Republicans. Will it rally the base, or will it send some moderate Republicans and independents running for the hills? Only time will tell, folks.

But one thing’s for sure: Trump’s playbook hasn’t changed. The man’s like a broken record stuck on “name-calling” and “divisive rhetoric.” Love him or hate him, you can’t deny he knows how to keep things interesting. And hey, isn’t that what politics is all about?
