I don’t know what cave you have been living in for most of 2017 but Trump and the republican controlled Congress are not very often on the same page together.


What?  LOL.  Yeah, except on every single policy issue of any importance.  
Really? ObamaCare has been repealed? How’s that Wall doing on the border!?  DACA?
Quote

In fact, on Moore, they aren't so far apart.  McConnell obviously prefers a marketable Republican there, but doesn't oppose Moore so much that he would accept losing the seat to a Democrat.  Which was Trump's position all of a week ago before he said fuck it and went all in.  

Well, except that, as previously noted and ignored by you and YankGuy, McConnell is the adult in the room. For obvious reasons.

McConnell's statement this weekend is pure chicken shit.  "We'll let the voters decide..."

Pray tell who else will decide the election?

Maybe that list of lightweights can talk to the head of their party and have him convince Moore to drop out. The head of your party wants an accused pedophile to be a U.S. Senator.

Come down off your throne and leave your body alone. Somebody must change. You are the reason I've been waiting so long. Somebody holds the key. But I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time. And I'm wasted and I can't find my way home.

Can’t help you there.
Especially since the Senators and the Head of the Party have different agendas.
My guess is that the Senators will win the war even if a Trump wins the battle.

Given that McConnell no longer says that, RSW's list is passe.

RSW also includes folks like David Perdue, who did not call for Moore to step aside, which McConnell did at one point (but no more). He said "if the allegations are true," but took no position on those, either.

Tim Scott is more steadfast, as are others. But at its peak it was less than half of the GOP Senators.

What, exactly, do you want from the GOP Senators that is different from the democrats advising a Franken to resign?

Alabama let him down.

So did McConnell.

That has nothing to do with the current state of... er... affairs.

Trump has endorsed Moore, preferring to have the pedophile (or if you insist, the hebephile) in office for the sake of the party's goals.

McConnell has gone from calling for Moore to leave the race or potentially removing him should he get elected to instead shrugging his shoulders and saying that the people's voice is what he will heed.

Keep hiding behind the primary, kid - the smell fits you.
