Is Trump gone? I am getting the impression he is still behind the scenes using his base as a weapon to drive Republicans in Congress to support his lies, whims and revenge tactics. I expect he is the main driver of the efforts to remove Liz from leadership roles. His fawning obsequious base is poised to accept or reject whomever Trump dictates is worthy or not. It doesn't seem like that is something that has happened before in American politics but I am sure a Trump supporter can pull a false equivelency out of their hat to normalize it.
