‘Meet the Press’ panel discuss Trump’s death being the only way he doesn’t run in 2024

With a stunning admission that was at once a positive reinforcement of the GOP’s outlook heading through the next couple elections and a testament to the extensive damage caused by Trump Derangement Syndrome, an NBC panel suggested that the only way to escape Donald Trump’s hold on politics in America is for the 76-year-old former president to die.

Mark Leibovich, staff writer for The Atlantic, appeared Sunday on “Meet The Press,” and cited an anonymous Republican lawmaker who purportedly said of a Trump 2024 run, “Look we have no plan for this, except sitting around hoping he dies.”

NBC host Chuck Todd led into the matter by posing a question that he appeared to have no interest hearing the answer to, “If he runs, will somebody explain to me how he accepts losing?”

As National Review editor Rich Lowry began to respond with his assessment of the odds on whether Trump would run or not, Todd interrupted while waving around Leibovich’s book and said, “It seems like all these people told you was death. That was the only answer is death.”

Leibovich was on the show, at least in part, to plug his new book, “Thank You For Your Servitude: Donald Trump’s Washington and the Price of Submission.”

The book claims it tracks “the transformation” of Republican officials like Sens. Marco Rubio (FL), Ted Cruz (TX) and Lindsey Graham away from positions of morality toward enablers of Trump which brought Leibovich to quote the anonymous GOP lawmaker.

Earlier in the conversation he had stated, “Based on the precedent of recent history, the Republican MO in dealing with Donald Trump is fecklessness,” which is a bold stance for a man to make as he laments the only way his opposition might be stopped the man is dead. And he made this argument only days after former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was assassinated while campaigning for his party.

All of his assertions seemingly pivoted back to the promotion of his book as he derided leaders in the House and Senate. “I don’t think the revolution is going to be led by Lindsey Graham or [Rep.] Kevin McCarthy or [Sen.] Mitch McConnell and look, they’ve had the chance to do it over and over and over again,” the writer stated.

“If he can survive Jan. 6, and for a few days it looked like he wasn’t, and be where he is today-” Leibovich went on, before Todd redirected the conversation to his unanswered question.

The author chimed back in later further hawking his book, “These conversations happen over and over again and what cast it in such sharp relief, and over the last few months, is you see what’s happening in England, you see what’s happening on the Jan. 6 commission – the courage that actually does happen in conservative circles is cast in such sharp relief with the punitive leadership of the Republican party.”

The unspoken consensus of the panel was the Republicans are on the path to win in the midterms and again in 2024, and they will never stop letting Trump occupy their minds rent free.
