In LNP | LancasterOnline’s Jan. 6 article, “Smucker announces endorsement of Trump,” U.S. Rep. Lloyd Smucker toes the Republican Party line regarding President Donald Trump’s instigation of insurrection in 2021 and last year’s federal indictment of Trump for his alleged actions to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

“As voters get ready to head to the ballot box, the Democratic Party has unveiled their newest scheme to keep Donald Trump from appearing on the ballot,” Smucker said. “It is clear that they are willing to weaponize our judicial system and will stop at nothing to prop up the failed Biden presidency.”

Well, it’s crystal-clear to me that Smucker and his elected Republican buddies are willing to weaponize the country’s reality-challenged voters in order to get some dictatorial psychopath back up on his invisible white horse.

All to ensure their own futures.
