The Last Word
LAWRENCE O’DONNELL: Jason, how did it happen? Bob corker complaining about his Republican senate colleagues as a cult at this point.
JASON JOHNSON: You know, the Republican branding to cult 45 has been going for a couple of years now, right? This idea that you can get elected, that you can be in power, that you can push through policy, not because of some long existing principle, but just because you have a personality that people like. And the Republican party has been pushing for this for years, right? This goes back to Reagan. You know, there was a cult of Reagan we were talking about all the way up to Romney. I don’t know if you remember this, but remember a couple of years ago there was actually like a bid for some of Reagan's blood. I mean, that’s as cult-like as you can get. There were people who worshiped Reagan. But, what's been happening with Trump is that there is no policy associated with it. It's just who people think Trump is and the Republican party is going to follow him down this path and it ends up like most cults end up, which is death and destruction to everybody involved.
