Donald Trump may have become president in 2016, but he wasn’t an overwhelming choice. In fact, more than half of the voters cast a ballot for their opponent.
But when Trump took office, the GOP declared that they had a clear mandate. And any democrat who opposed their ideas was a “snowflake”.
Now the shoe is on the other foot and the Democrats are in clear control. And the Republicans complain about everything. They even made a big problem out of just wearing a mask. During an appearance Monday night, MSNBC’s John Heilemann explained why this turns Republicans into real snowflakes.
The contributor started with Marjorie Taylor Greene, noting: “If you listen to her talk about it, try to explain, you come across the fact that she is just a pinhead and I think she says these things over-making these comparisons – I don’t think she is moral complexity to understand why Jews find these comments so appalling. “

Heilemann continued: “I don’t think she’s the kind of – she doesn’t have the kind of moral sense to understand how offensive what she’s doing is. But I’ll also say this: if you listen to these comments made by someone like this, you will be reminded once again what a bunch of snowflakes this Republican Party is. “
The expert concluded: “And aside from the stupidity and moral bankruptcy, it’s just such an incredibly tearful, ridiculous thing to say. “Oh, I’m dressed like that. With this mask on, it’s so terrible that I’m going to draw an analogy with the Holocaust. ‘I mean, could you be more of a snowflake than an idiot and a completely morally bankrupt idiot? You couldn’t be more of a snowflake than complaining this way. It’s driving me crazy. “
Joe Biden does a great job and his approval ratings are high. The Republicans have no choice but to continue the culture war. Time will tell if it is a winning fight for them.
