Proof that the Cult of Trump and the GOP are not the same thing

This shit is hilarious-

.. the Trump cartel is refusing to let the RNC provide any real money for House Republican reelection campaigns, even though House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is begging for money.

Trumpism Is ‘Identity Politics’ for White People

Adam Serwer retweeted his Oct. 2018 article today with that title and it definitely is worth a reminder right now:

Karens

I am intrigued by this brand new stereotypical enemy of the left, Karens. One month there's all these new heroines, the suburban woman centrist voters who helped give us a Democratic House of Representatives and are going to save us from Trump. And they are cis, and have kids and a husband, and are going #MeToo. The next month very similar women,  they are ridiculed if not totally despised. Got me thinking: is Hillary Clinton a Karen? Who else? Just ran across--this woman looks like another unfortunate Karen, worthless even as a token?
