Trumpiraptors are coming back to Washington

If true, we should be very, very worried.

Here are a couple of items from Charlie Sykes (Nov 11, 2021).

Why Trump II is more scary than Trump I.

Exit take: It seems dangerously naïve to think that the demagogues can continue to stoke the flames without mortal consequences.

“I’m really worried about a return of Donald Trump this time, because this time, the Velociraptors have figured out how to work the doorknobs.” - @DavidFrum on why Trump’s second term would be even worse.

Axios reports that Chris Christie Taunts Trump for losing

“I’m not gonna get into a back-and-forth with Donald Trump. But what I will say is this: When I ran for reelection in 2013, I got 60% of the vote. When he ran for reelection, he lost to Joe Biden.”

This is the first hand-to-hand combat of the 2024 Republican presidential race.

Many Republican candidates fear crossing Trump. But Christie — who said he still considers Trump a friend, despite their falling-out over the president’s behavior during the Jan. 6 riot — relishes political combat.
