Conservative commentator Charlie Sykes, a censor of President Donald Trump, laid into Republicans Thursday for their weird display of loquacious regard toward the president, following Wednesday’s thoroughfare of the taxation bill.
MSNBC horde Chris Matthews kicked off the review by describing the event.
“It was like a stage out of Julius Cesar yesterday on the south lawn of the White House,” Matthews said. “One by one, Republican leaders lined up to regard his eminence, the despotic Donald Trump.”
When it was his spin to speak, Sykes was sardonic in his comment of the Republicans.
“I get that they were excited, we get that they like taxation cuts, but because do you actually have this ritualized fluffing of the orange god-king?” he asked.
“Do you understand you’re doing this in public? We can see what you’re doing here,” he continued. “I mean, this is great, Paul [Ryan], you got your taxation cuts. But have a little pride, just a little bit of dignity left when all this is over.”
