What do you think you’re going to get from this, Ted? You’re already a senator and you’ll never be president. You already tried kissing up to Trump in
2016 in the vain hope that his candidacy would collapse and you could collect the pieces. It didn’t work then, and it won’t work now.
You’re too much of an elitist wuss for the MAGA crowd. They hear you talk. They saw how you came crawling back after Trump insulted your wife and called
your father a murderer. They like Trump’s over-the-top reality show charisma, which you very much lack.
And you’re too much an opponent of the Constitution for the conservative establishment. The weaselly, technically-not-lying excuse won’t fly. “All I did
was note the allegations” or “I just called for an investigation to restore confidence” is transparent bullshit. Maybe some rubes don’t understand the
“just asking questions” style of conspiracy theorizing, but enough people do.

the same way as we did earlier in the year. That is, out of apparent, near-total indifference.
