For John, BLUF: Didn't we learn to play nice in Kindergarten? Doesn't the history of American politics teach us that the other side eventually gains the upper hand, only to then relinquish it. Bipartisanship means working together to get the business of America done. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Washington Post columnist warns of need to 'burn down the Republican Party' to wipe out Trump supporters
From Fox News, by Nick Givas, 26 August 2019.
Here is the lede plus three:
Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin pushed for Americans to work together to "burn down the Republican party" in the hopes of extinguishing any trace of the enthusiasm for President Trump.I don't think it is helpful for the body politic to make all discussions life or death. Maybe we need to turn down the rhetoric a tad. Maybe not talk in terms of "burning down" the opposition.
Rubin appeared on MSNBC's "AM Joy" Sunday and said that not only does Trump have to lose in 2020, but there must be a purging of "survivors" who still support the commander-in-chief.
"It's not only that Trump has to lose, but that all his enablers have to lose," she said. "We have to collectively, in essence, burn down the Republican Party."
"We have to level them because if there are survivors -- if there are people who weather this storm, they will do it again."
