Liberal Host Says THIS About Republican Traitors
Here’s what he said.
According to the Daily Caller, Historian Jon Meacham attacked Republicans stating that those who voted against Trump “helped their obituaries.”
“Yeah. If I were Sen. Burr, I would embrace that. Sometimes we talk about obituary management. Those seven folks just helped their obituaries,” Meacham responded. “I think about this a lot when you see we’re at the point in the actuarial cycle where a lot of folks involved in Watergate are moving on. And, it’s just interesting to see what is it that you’re remembered for.”
“I’m sure Sen. Burr is a lovely man. I’m sure he has done a lot for North Carolina and America. But, I promise you that the thing right now that looms largest is that he decided we’re a constitutional republic not a cult of personality. And in many ways, that’s what that vote was about,” he continued.
“On this Presidents Day, one of the things to think about is we do have a different president. And 81 million Americans made what I would argue is the right choice in November,” Meacham continued. “And 57 United States senators, not enough, but 57 United States senators said that this man was — the former president, was guilty of inciting insurrection against his own government. And that 57-43 number, while not determinative in a constitutional sense, is probably not that far off from where the country at large is about the Republican party.” You can read the full article here.
