A couple of Republican governors are now learning that Donald Trump is loyal to no one except himself. It wasn’t long ago that both Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey were key allies to the president. That was then, this is now. This week the current president has trashed both governors. Trump has repeatedly asked Kemp to “use his emergency powers” to “overrule” the election results in the Peach State. Kemp’s office told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that state law “prohibits the governor from interfering in the election.” But Trump wants Kemp to somehow go around the law saying, “The governor’s done nothing. He’s done absolutely nothing. I’m ashamed that I endorsed him.”

Then Monday, Trump turned his attention to Ducey.


And Ducey is clearly over the president’s effort to meddle in the election. Just as Ducey was signing the papers to certify the election yesterday, he appeared to decline a call from Trump. Watch MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow break this down above.

Ducey also fired off nine tweets pointing out that his state has “some of the strongest election laws in the country.”
