GOP Governor: Trump turning America into a ‘Banana Republic


..some Republicans afraid of the president, some humoring him

Alternet: Appearing on CNN with host Jake Tapper, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) scorched Donald Trump for trying to manipulate electors in various states to overturn the presidential election results and hand the presidency back to him, calling the president’s efforts “outrageous.”


Asked about the president meeting with officials from Michigan and trying to manipulate them into throw votes out, the “State of the Union” guest was livid.

“Well, I have confidence that on January 20th, the president-elect is going to be sworn in but I’m not sure, you know, I could say I’m confident that the president is going to the right thing,” he told the CNN host. “Look. I thought the pressuring of the legislators to try to somehow, you know, change the outcome with electors was completely outrageous.”

“Quite frankly, we used to supervise elections around the world and we were the most respected country with respect to elections,” he continued. “Now we are beginning to look like we are a banana republic. Now it’s time for them to stop the nonsense. It is more bizarre every single day and, frankly, I’m embarrassed that more people in the Republican Party aren’t speaking up.”

  1. Whichever Moron wins, the USA Corporation already IS a Banana Republic. What Planet are you on? Cognitive Dissonance is All Pervasive in direct proportion to the number of people watching MSM TV. As Casey from the CIA said: “we will know that Operation Mockingbird has succeeded when everything the American Public believes is a lie”. Not just the TV, but Edward Bernays’ Advertising and Public Relations, Frankfurt School “Education” and so on and so on. Not much better in the Wider World either.

  2. “We’re Beginning to look like we are a banana republic” lol.
    When Trump out of all the people was elected the banana republic certification was delivered to the White House.
