Context: After losses for the GOP in Tuesday's key elections in VA and NJ, trump blames Gillespie for the loss in VA due to him not embracing trumpism enough, and takes no accountability for the effect of his own record as president in this election (e.g., trump's words and handling of Charlottesville protests).
"Ed Gillespie worked hard but did not embrace me or what I stand for. Don't forget, Republicans won 4 out of 4 House seats, and with the economy doing record numbers, we will continue to win, even bigger than before!"
This isn't anything new. At the one year mark since he was elected as president, trump never stopped blaming everyone else but himself, starting with Obama and Hilary Clinton, to the Dems as well as the GOP and Mitch McConnell, members of his own cabinet and staff, our EU and Asia allies as well as countries like China, and of course, the media and fake news, for his ineptitude and failures as president.
It is important to remember that the race in VA was supposed to be won by democrats, although GOP would have liked to have seen a closer race and not a blowout, and perhaps pull off a victory using trumpism as their platform. But what this result in VA shows is that, trump can't deliver a victory when you're trailing, nor will trump stand with you when things go south. trump could have congratulated Gillespie for a hard fought uphill race, but instead he placed the blame squarely on Gillespie for not doing enough. How will the GOP view this kind of disloyalty and distancing by trump, when trump himself gets in to trouble? That remains to be seen.
This is basically comedy at this point
This President desperately needs to be accountable.
The White House needs an enema. Flush out all this shit.
I doubt Trump has ever excepted responsibility for anything in his entire life.
