Donald Trump held one of his lie and hate-filled rallies last night in Iowa. What was different is who he shared the stage with—actual elected members of Congress. Politico writes:
Appearing alongside the former president was a who’s who of influential Republicans in the Hawkeye state, including Sen. Chuck Grassley and Gov. Kim Reynolds, Iowa Reps. Mariannette Miller-Meeks and Ashley Hinson, former acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker and Iowa GOP Chair Jeff Kaufmann.
back in January, Grassley condemned Trump, but the 88-year-old Senator has recently announced for reelection, January is a distant memory. From Politico—
|“For Trump, this is a wonderful gift. The ex-president has been openly discussing the likelihood that he will run for president again. To be greeted with open arms in the all-important, first-in-the-nation presidential caucus state of Iowa was a flashing-neon light signal to voters that this party remains his. And he’s done it all while still launching broadsides against current leadership (he eviscerated Senate Minority Leader MITCH MCCONNELL at various points on Saturday for striking a deal with Democrats to raise the debt ceiling and for not having the ‘courage to challenge the election’) and without offering a morsel of remorse for how his presidency ended.”|
