Republicans are living in a state of denial

President Donald Trump speaks at his Merry Christmas Rally at the Kellogg Arena on Dec. 18, 2019, in Battle Creek, Mich. While President Trump spoke at the rally the House of Representatives voted, mostly along party lines, to impeach him for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, making him just the third president in American history to be impeached.

Watching the debates leading up to the House impeachment of President Donald Trump, I was amazed at the number of otherwise intelligent and well-functioning elected officials who apparently are living in a total state of denial (“Mitch McConnell blasts the House impeachment as unfair and pledges Senate defeat. Nancy Pelosi wants more details before handing the matter over,” Dec. 19).

Republicans appear to have convinced themselves that the overwhelming evidence that clearly condemns President Trump of abuse of power and obstruction of justice never happened. I am reminded of the fate of the Whig Party in the early 1800’s whose total corruption led to its demise and the birth of the Republican Party which once stood for integrity and honesty. The future of the Republican Party post-Trump looks bleak indeed.
