Former VA Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling, a Conservative Republican, Says Trump’s Reaction to Possible Arrest Next Week “tells you all you need to know…Everything is about him and him alone”

Meanwhile, "crickets" so far from Youngkin, Sears, Miyares, etc.


See below for some comments by Virginians on the quite possible arrest of former President Donald Trump in the near future – maybe in next week. So far, basically ZERO Virginia elected Republicans have said a word about this, even though Trump is the leader of their party. Very telling. As for those who HAVE commented:

  • Former LG Bill Bolling, a conservative Republican who may very well end supporting dictator-wannabe Ron DeSantis for president, writes, “A responsible leader would assure his supporters he had done nothing wrong [note: in Trump’s case, he’s committed MANY, SERIOUS crimes], tell them to trust the legal process, and call for calm [note: Trump incited a violent mob to try to destroy our democracy and steal an election, so…nope, he’s certainly not going to do THAT!]. This tells you all you need to know about Trump. Everything is about him and him alone.”
  • Former Rep. Denver Riggleman (R-VA05) says Trump’s “language is unacceptable.”
  • UVA Professor Larry Sabato, who is not a partisan figure or a politician but is a top political analyst, says “it’s wise to prepare for potential violence from the far-right and white supremacists.”
  • Finally, note that Speaker Kevin McCarthy, while not a Virginian, was supported by Virginia Representatives Rob Wittman (R-VA01), Jen Kiggans (R-VA02), Ben Cline (R-VA06) and Morgan Griffith (R-VA09). McCarthy is busy attacking what he (falsely, dangerously) calls “an outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA who lets violent criminals walk as he pursues political vengeance against President Trump.” Utterly appalling, irresponsible, insane comments by McCarthy…who gives new meaning to the term “McCarthyism.”
