Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) — who’s dutifully condoned President Donald Trump’s corrupt antics like the rest of the GOP for the past four years — is baffled by the chaos that’s emerged for some inexplicable reason in recent weeks.

After President Donald Trump fired Chris Krebs, the top cybersecurity official at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the GOP senator gently rebuked Trump on Wednesday, then puzzled over the tumultuous state of affairs.

“It’s the President’s prerogative, but I think it just adds to the confusion and chaos,” Cornyn told reporters, per Politico. “And I’m sure I’m not the only one that would like some return to a little bit more of a…I don’t even know what’s normal anymore.”

“We’ll call it the next normal,” he added. “It’s not the new normal, it’s the next normal.”

Like his GOP colleagues, Cornyn has allowed Trump to get away with virtually everything his entire presidency, including the Ukraine scandal that led to the President’s impeachment and his disastrous handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, the Texas Republican has recently begun to inch away from Trump: About two weeks before the elections, which Trump was predicted to lose at the time, Cornyn said he’s “privately” disagreed with the President in the past and likened their relationship to a bad marriage. Hmmm.
