To hear liberal concern trolls tell it, the presumed defeat of Donald Trump will be the end of the Republican Party.
“Today’s GOP Crackup Is the Final Unraveling of Nixon’s Southern Strategy,” said The Nation.
“Donald Trump Takes to Twitter to Stoke a GOP Civil War,” claimed Mother Jones.
“GOP Civil War: Trump Camp Officially Severs Ties with Ohio GOP Chairman,” said Talking Points Memo.
In The Washington Post, Robert Costa put the apocalypse in this tweet: “The election ends in 19 days. A grievance movement looms. Norms shattered, a city paralyzed. A party at war.”
I could go on for, according to Google, approximately 9,888,000 more examples. And to be fair, many conservatives believe we are having a Fort Trumpter moment, too.
But Trump’s tangles with other Republicans won’t develop into anything, because Trump will go away. And the Trump page in American history won’t actually change much in the Republican Party.
