Trump Slams 'Dumb & Disloyal' Amash As Congressman Quits Republican Party

President Trump has apparently taken a quick break from preparing for today's festivities to take one last swing at Amash on his way out the door. In a tweet, Trump called him "the dumbest & most disloyal [man] in Congress". Trump insisted Amash "knew he couldn't get the nomination to run again in the Great State of Michigan" - something that we mentioned earlier as a possible motivating factor for Amash's decision to quit the Republican Party.

By adding the quotes around quitting, Trump also suggests - as we did earlier - that Amash was effectively pushed out over his impeachment comments.

Great news for the Republican Party as one of the dumbest & most disloyal men in Congress is “quitting” the Party. No Collusion, No Obstruction! Knew he couldn’t get the nomination to run again in the Great State of Michigan. Already being challenged for his seat. A total loser!

“The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty."
"It serves always to distract the public councils and enfeeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which finds a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another."

Finally, the Congressman started the column by recounting his father's journey to the US as a Palestinian refugee.

It's already suspicious that Amash & WaPo decided to publish this op-ed on the Fourth of July, when it would almost certainly get drowned out by coverage of a hot-dog eating contest in Coney Island and, of course, President Trump's 'Inauguration 2.0' Washington rally, which the president says will feature tanks and - more controversially - 'advanced aircraft' (note: DoD officials have insisted that aircraft not be used).

People are coming from far and wide to join us today and tonight for what is turning out to be one of the biggest celebrations in the history of our Country, SALUTE TO AMERICA, an all day event at the Lincoln Memorial, culminating with large scale flyovers of the most modern.....

....and advanced aircraft anywhere in the World. Perhaps even Air Force One will do a low & loud sprint over the crowd. That will start at 6:00P.M., but be there early. Then, at 9:00 P.M., a great (to put it mildly) fireworks display. I will speak on behalf of our great Country!

So much so, that we're inclined to believe that the timing was deliberate - that he released it on a day when everybody else is distracted, hoping that it would get lost in the never-ending accumulation of political headlines. Is the Washington Post widely read in Amash's Republican-leaning district in Michigan? We very much doubt it.

Amash's decision to quit the party will almost certainly cost him his ...
