Donald Trump likes to compare himself favourably to Abraham Lincoln, the only president he believes who was (slightly) greater than him.
And when there's a full moon, he has even been heard to describe himself as the Great Uniter.
Which of course is hilarious. MAGA !!! MAGA!!! MA HA HA HA!!!
But now at least he may have earned himself the title of the great Un-Lincoln.
After being humiliated by the victory of the religious bigot Roy Moore.
Roy S. Moore, a firebrand former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, overcame efforts by top Republicans to rescue his rival, Senator Luther Strange, soundly defeating him on Tuesday in a special primary runoff.
The outcome in the closely watched Senate race dealt a humbling blow to President Trump and other party leaders days after the president pleaded with voters in the state to back Mr. Strange.
Who takes Trump and the Bible literally...
And whose victory could signal the beginning of a catastrophic civil war in the Republican Party
Republicans are confronting an insurrection on the right that is angry enough to imperil their grip on Congress, and senior party strategists have concluded that the conservative base now loathes its leaders in Washington the same way it detested President Barack Obama.
With the Alt-Right fanatic Steve Bannon, who campaigned strongly for Moore, now threatening other Republican lawmakers...
Stephen K. Bannon, Mr. Trump’s former chief strategist and a vehement antagonist of the party establishment, said on Tuesday night that he intends to target Republican senators in Mississippi, Arizona and Nevada for defeat.
And his grubby rag Breitbart making it clear that Trumpism doesn't necessarily mean Trump.
With the results now clear in Alabama’s hotly-contested U.S. Senate Republican primary race, the unambiguous message coming from the GOP voters responsible for Roy Moore’s underdog victory is clear-cut — a crucial reminder to everyone that Trumpism is not about any one person.
More importantly, what this humiliating loss tells President Trump is that Trumpism is not even about him. The indisputable lesson here for the president is that even he, the man who started the movement, is not bigger than the promises, ideas, agenda, and platform he ran on.
Which may please Trump's base...
But will almost certainly please the Democrats even more.
If nothing else, divisive intraparty battles could cost party donors tens of millions of dollars and weaken Republicans’ position in a year when Democrats were already poised to make gains, at least in the House.
For while Roy Moore may play well in redneck Alabama, where inbreeding has taken such a terrible toll they can't even spell DESERVE properly on the side of his campaign bus...
And this is considered godly behaviour...
ICYMI: Judge Roy Moore proves he's a true 2nd Amendment supporter pic.twitter.com/XvGh57uB1O— FOX & friends (@foxandfriends) September 27, 2017
Moore's bigoted theocratic views, or Alabammy values, are a political gift for liberals.
Moore's words about people of color, the LGBT community and Muslims feed into liberals' worst stereotypes about the GOP, wrote Ed Rogers, an Alabamian and a veteran of the Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush White Houses.
“Liberals couldn’t be happier,” Rogers wrote. “Finally, there is a truly anti-gay, anti-woman, anti-Muslim, anti-everything elected Republican for all the world to see.”
For all Republican candidates will find themselves being asked over and over again, on a daily basis, whether they agree with Moore or not.
And of course so will Donald Trump, which can only make him even less popular, if that's possible.
So you can see where this one is going eh?
And if Mueller doesn't get him first, it could be the perfect ending....
He nailed himself to a cross.
He died for his sins.
And he took the Republican Party down with him...
