The Post Election Republican Theater

I have a thought to share about the group of Republicans like Lindsay Graham and Ted Cruz, among others, that are circling the wagons around Trump. My thinking is this is not for any substantive reason, but there is a group of Republicans wanting to position themselves to inherit Trump’s base. By supporting Trump now and confronting the alleged legitimacy of the election, these Republicans are wanting to be noticed and regarded as part of the Trump tribe that is sticking with Trump as the rest of the nation turns away from the president. This is really about building a resume and also a narrative of a “stolen election.”
