Well, you for one

How many times have you told people to get over it and move on when they’ve criticized Trump for anti democratic behavior since the election? Do you not see how that gives him cover? Did you see Romney argue, “geez people should just get over this and ignore Trump because he lost and his term is almost over”? No, he said “It’s hard to imagine a worse, more undemocratic action by a sitting president.” Period. No excuses. No false equivalence about Democrats. Just a principled call out for behavior that is very real and should concern every American. If I or anyone else on this board would’ve said that, you or others would have either (a) stayed silent or (b) mocked the poster as suffering from TDS and brought up some false equivalent comparison to 2016, just as Colo Spgs already did in this thread. You can pretend this doesn’t happen, but it obviously does. Many people on this board would prefer to stay silent about Trump’s undemocratic actions than be caught dead agreeing with a Democrat about anything. They don’t have the principle to make a plain denunciation like Romney’s that isn’t watered down in a bunch of excuses and false equivalence that serves only to deflect blame away from Trump.
