Trump doesn’t seem to like any of his top sycophants. Sometimes, he doesn’t even know who they are. Other times, he just insults them until they start begging for forgiveness. It must be so embarrassing for these people to lose their self respect like this. What have they been given in return for their loyalty? Mostly insults and threats. Just look at this brief list minions who have sold their souls to Trump, but seem to have received nothing in return.
Poor Chad, I mean Rick, or is it Nestor? Who knows? Who cares? Not Trump! The only thing that matters is that no sycophant has faithfully loved Trump like Whatsername. Trump is not quite sure who this guy is, but he heard that Whatsername says nice things about him. Vote for the other candidate and put whatshisname out of his misery. No one needs a spurned lover sitting in Congress.
In the very beginning, we all thought that Lindsey Graham would stand up to Trump, but that adventure was short lived. All it took was some outrageous insults from Trump and Lindsey was happy to heel. Is it because Lindsey enjoys the abuse? It is more likely that Lindsey has Stockholm syndrome.
Harsh! Soon after these comments, Lindsey was eager to become Trump’s lapdog. The saddest part of the whole story is that Trump doesn’t like dogs. In fact, if he doesn’t like you, chances are he will call you a dog. A dirty sweaty dog.
Did anyone ever believe they would see a day when Ted Cruz appeared to be an honorable and likable man when compared to the President of the United States? Well that day came and it was every bit as ugly as anyone could imagine. Still, some of us are old enough to remember that time the entire nation laughed out loud when Lindsey Graham joked that: “If you killed Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial was in the Senate, nobody would convict you,”. Ahhh, the good old days.
Ted Cruz might know the truth about Trump’s attitude toward women, but that has not stopped Cruz from becoming Trump’s loyal sycophant. Trump didn’t stop at insulting Cruz’s wife either. Conspiracy theorist Trump started spreading rumors that Ted Cruz’s father killed JFK. Weird, but here we are.
Despite Cruz conspicuously supporting Trump and the Trump Administration’s agenda, he didn’t even get an invite to 2020 RNC. Maybe next time, Ted. Maybe next time. Just keep groveling. Groveling has always been a legitimate route to power.
Speaking of Chris Christie, few others have been so abused by Trump. Yet, the former New Jersey Governor keeps coming back for more.
So why did Chris Christie start shilling for Trump? Many people say that Christie was lured into submission after Trump dangled a Vice Presidential carrot over his head. Christie was mesmerized and fell into the abyss. Too bad for Christie because Trump picked Pence. Oh well.
After spending 7 days in the ICU, Chris Christie is now advocating for masks and warning people they want to avoid catching Covid-19. It was like he was born again and was looking for redemption. Will we give Christie any redemption? Trump never forgives.
Few people are as much as a Trump Sycophant as Mike Pence. Many people are saying that Melania advised Trump to pick Pence for VP simply because she believed that Pence would be satisfied with a subordinate role. Well, Melania sure called that right. During the impeachment debacle, Pence could have simply reached out and grabbed the reins of power for himself, but he failed to do so. Instead, Pence cowered in some corner hoping that no one would notice him.
The only thing more demoralizing than being a Trump sycophant is being a Trump sycophant that is a woman. “Quick, quick, quick”, yells Trump at one of the few women who are willing to support him. Trump needs McSally, but he can’t seem to appreciate her efforts. Frankly, we don’t appreciate her, either, but that is not the point. Would Trump have spoken this way to a man?
Despite everything that McSally has done for him, Trump has turned cool toward her because she failed to be a SUPER sycophant during her debate with opponent Mark Kelly. Apparently, simply rubber stamping everything Trump says is not enough.
Poor Martha McSally has gone above and beyond the performances of Trump’s male sycophants, but she still does not get the credit she truly deserves. It takes a lot for a veteran to sit back and say nothing when the Commander in Chief refers to her brothers and sisters in arms as suckers and losers. Imagine how difficult that it was for McSally to continue to support Trump after the whole world learned that Russia pays bounties for every American soldier killed. That is TRULY dedication to serving Trump.
So there you have it. Trump’s best sycophants are little more than frenemies. We can almost feel sad for them, that despite all their hard work and scheming, Trump will lose his bid for re-election. Then they will have lost everything. Their wannabe dictator, their self-respect, and possibly even their jobs. Hopefully it was worth it.
