How the Republican Party got pimped

  1. a man who controls prostitutes and arranges clients for them, taking part of their earnings in return.
“What can I say?” Trump seems to be asking. “That’s how this business works.”

This week marks the start of the Republican National Convention. In a story posted on the Marketwatch website, it was noted that some unusual shifts in normal convention and nomination procedures have been implemented basically by direction of President Donald Trump. The story notes: “The Republican National Committee will go without a traditional policy platform at the upcoming GOP convention, saying instead that it “will continue to enthusiastically support the president’s America-first agenda.”

In a statement issued Sunday, the RNC said it adopted a resolution Saturday to go without a platform due to the difficulties presented by the coronavirus pandemic, which has forced the convention to significantly scale back.

“The RNC has unanimously voted to forego the Convention Committee on Platform, in appreciation of the fact that it did not want a small contingent of delegates formulating a new platform without the breadth of perspectives within the ever-growing Republican movement,” the RNC said.

The irony of that last sentence should not be ignored. Claiming that the RNC “did not want a small contingent of delegates formulating a new platform without a breadth of perspectives” is beyond absurd. The RNC is doing one thing: the will of the President. He is their pimp and their controller. He arranges their clients and takes a portion of their earnings for himself.

Nothing more need be said about the nature of the Trump administration and its behavior. The Republican Party entered into a relationship with a pimp, and they’ve now been pimped.
