Pro-impeachment Rep. Justin Amash just fired back at Trump after his “total loser” remarks

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) has made a name for himself as one of the few Republicans willing to call out his party’s leader, Donald Trump and demand that impeachment proceedings be initiated against the most nakedly corrupt president in our nation’s history.

For that, he has earned himself the ire of the Republican propaganda machine and the President himself, who recently called him one of the “dumbest and most disloyal men in Congress” and a “total loser” after Amash announced he would be leaving the GOP in a July 4th op-ed.

Amash responded to the President on Sunday during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, choosing to take the high road and not respond with more insults.

Instead, he chose to interpret the attack as a perfect example of the frustration the nation feels towards the extreme partisanship and viciousness that defines the modern Republican Party and that drove him to leave the GOP for good.

“He’s really identified what I talk about in my op-ed. He thinks people owe loyalty to him, but people are elected to Congress with an oath to support and defend the Constitution, not an oath to support and defend one person, the president, who happens to be in your own party,” said Amash.

“I think most people understand that’s not how people are supposed to talk about others to each other,” he finished.

While Amash absurdly tried to pass the blame for extreme partisanship on to both parties, he’s absolutely right when it comes to the GOP and Trump.

President Trump flagrantly seeks to undermine the rule of law at every opportunity, to abuse his position in order to fill his own pockets, to insult our allies and throw the economy into chaos with his reckless trade wars, to coddle dictators and has committed horrifying human rights atrocities in his border concentration camps. Anyone of those things should be grounds for censure, yet his enablers in Congress have done nothing but applaud and look the other way at all his cruelties and excesses.

No wonder Trump thinks that people owe loyalty to him, seeing as almost nobody in his party ever tries to tell him “no!”
