Appearing on MSNBC, Rep. Adam Schiff was shown a video of Republican Minority Whip Steve Scalise asked if he acknowledged President Joe Biden as the “legitimate president of the United States.”
“This is the number two Republican in the House, and he has difficulty saying that Joe Biden was elected in a free and fair election because he doesn’t want to antagonize Donald Trump and his base,” Schiff said “notwithstanding the fact that Donald Trump incited a violent attack on our Capitol, these republican leaders are still in his thrall.”
“Steve Scalise made the same pilgrimage Kevin McCarthy did to Mar-a-Lago to kiss the ring, to once again pledge fealty to Donald Trump,” he continued”
“They have tied their wagon to this amoral now former president. It’s a terrible thing for the Republican Party, but it’s also a tragedy for the country. We need two functional parties. Right now, we only have one functional party and a cult of personality around Donald Trump,” he added.
