We’re now seeing what amounts to a ‘love that dare not say its name’ proxy battle over Trumpism and Donald Trump within the GOP. Only it’s being played out over two women, Reps. Marjorie Greene and Liz Cheney. Marjorie Greene is a disgrace. No question. She deserves every measure of calumny and denunciation she is receiving from folks like Mitch McConnell and others now sidling up close to McConnell. But everything Greene has said, done and endorsed has been similarly said, done and endorsed by Donald Trump. Indeed, Trump is literally endorsing her! The heat shield around her, holding up at least for the moment, is built around the “GREAT call” she and Trump had over the weekend. Greene is Trump and Trump is Greene. So Greene – who deserves every censure – amounts to the scape goat some Republicans are trying to push off the cliff to expiate the sins of Donald Trump, who they can never cross.
