How's the GOP support for Trump holding up?

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Trump might bring down his own presidency.

Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) said Trump’s interactions with Comey were “very inappropriate.”

And Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said it’s unclear whether Trump’s actions toward Comey — leading to his abrupt firing on May 9 — amounted to a crime.

Update:

None embraced Trump’s depiction of Comey as a liar or attempted to dispute Comey’s account of private meetings with the president.

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) had strong praise for Comey after his testimony.

    In the Watergate days, the GOP leaders backed Nixon 200% until they suddenly didn't. At a certain point GOP congressional leaders realized they risked their own seats so Nixon had to go. I see that happening with Trump--at a certain point the leaders of the party will realize they're better off not being on his side.

    The GOP is fractured today, after 8 years of Obama. Even though they have control of both houses of Congress AND the White House, they're not able to get anything done because they can't agree among themselves. That would be true even if Trump was doing a good job. It seems like individual Republican congresscritters want to position themselves as fighting the mainstream GOP instead of fighting the Democrats--which is, of course, how Trump got elected in the first place. Meaning that even what support Trump does enjoy within the party is thinner and more fragile than he seems to perceive.

    All those politicians will have to run for their offices again. Trump won't. They now know that Trump is failing and it will only get worse. Any Republican who wants to continue to have a career will start trying to distance themselves from Trump.

    Pretty well, do far. Those you reference has opposed Trump from the beginning, longer and more intensely than pretty much any Democrat. That's one of the things that attracted Republicans to Trump in the first place. We were and remain PISSED OFF at the establishment republicans who, quite clearly, have done more to stop Trump in the first few months of his Presidency than they EVER did to stop Obama over the last eight years.

    So, don't worry your pretty little head. We're doing just fine and those opposed to American strength, prosperity and independence are being exposed and will be dealt with through the electoral process...just like pretty like the majority of your leftist leaders.
