For MAGA-Republicans, Control Trumps Character, Brunswick Beacon

Recently, Donald Trump attacked Mitch McConnell for supporting legislation that clarifies the Vice President’s election certification role as ceremonial. Trump took that as criticism of his attempt to bully Vice President Pence into overthrowing the 2020 election.

Trump said McConnell must have a “Death Wish,” and added a racist attack against McConnell’s “China loving wife, Coco Chow.” Elaine Chao resigned as Trump’s Transportation Secretary after the Jan. 6 insurrection, which she called a “traumatic and entirely avoidable event.”

No MAGA-Republican criticized Trump for his “Death Wish” rhetoric, or defended Ms. Chao against Trump’s bigotry. Not even her husband, Sen. McConnell!

Then, there’s Herschel Walker, Trump’s hand-picked Georgia senate candidate. Walker calls abortion murder, without exception. His ex-girlfriend says he encouraged her to get two and paid for one. She produced a receipt, a cancelled check from Walker, and his get-well card.

Walker’s son Christian tweeted: “You’re not a ‘family man’ when you…threatened to kill us, and had us move over 6 times in 6 months running from your violence.” Christian’s mom Cindy was married to Walker for 20 years. She described Walker’s frequent violence, “he held the gun to my temple and said he was going to blow my brains out." Walker doesn’t deny it. Instead, he blames his “mental illness.”

Christian added, “Family values, people? He has four kids, four different women, wasn’t in the house raising one of them…He was out having sex with other women. Do you care about family values?”

Trump, who brags about getting away with assaulting women, defended Walker as a man of “true greatness.’’ When Walker appeared at the First Baptist Church of Atlanta the next day, he got a standing ovation. MAGA-Republican radio host Dana Loesch said “I don’t care…I want control of the senate.”

No, Christian, MAGA-Republicans don’t care about family values, or character. They care about stripping rights from other people and controlling them.
