TKC REALITY CHECK: AMID PREZ TRUMP FLAP DON'T FORGET MISSOURI REPUBLICAN SUPER MAJORITY HAS ENOUGH VOTES TO OUST MARIA CHAPPELLE-NADAL!!! IF THEY DON'T . . . THEY'RE ALL TALK!!!
For just a moment, let's take a pause and hold politicos ON BOTH SIDES accountable for their chest thumping rhetoric.
Here's the deal . . .
- Missouri Republicans have a Super Majority in the Missouri Senate with a 72.7% voting share . . .
- The Guv is threatening to call for the ouster of the Senator after her hope for violence against the Prez and refusal to apologize
- According to MSM, the Senate needs a 2/3rds majority to do vote her out. That's a meager 22 votes that can completely come from a united GOP front on this topic.
And here's what needs to be put on blast . . .
SHE'S NOT GOING TO RESIGN . . . AND SO, IF MISSOURI REPUBLICANS DON'T LIVE UP TO THEIR BIG TALK THAN THEY'RE JUST CYNICALLY CASHING IN ON A STUPID SOCIAL MEDIA MISTAKE AND UNWILLING TO STAND UP FOR THEIR BELIEFS IN THE REAL WORLD!!!
To be fair, Democratic denizens need to live up to their words as well and vote her out . . .
But it seems that Guv. Grietens has drawn himself into a corner and now all of Missouri will be watching to see if his actions will live up to his bold statements.
