Republican BACKS Biden – SHUNS Trump!

Well, well, well, what do we have here? Former Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan, a Republican, has decided to jump ship and pledge his allegiance to none other than President Joe Biden in the upcoming November election. In a shocking display of self-righteous indignation, Duncan took to the op-ed pages to criticize his fellow Republicans who continue to support former President Donald Trump. Someone pass the popcorn, because this is going to be a wild ride!

Duncan, in a move that surely made his Republican colleagues’ eyes roll so far back in their heads they could see their own brains, called it “disappointing” to see the likes of Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell “fall in line behind” Trump. Apparently, Duncan has appointed himself the moral arbiter of the Republican Party, declaring that Trump has “disqualified himself” through his “conduct and his character.” It’s almost as if Duncan has been living under a rock for the past few years and has just now realized that Trump might not be the shining beacon of integrity he once thought.

But wait, there’s more! Duncan, in a stunning display of mental gymnastics, claims that Trump being the presumptive Republican nominee leaves him “no choice” but to support Biden until the Republicans “move on from the Trump era.” It’s like watching a toddler throw a tantrum because they didn’t get the toy they wanted, except instead of a toy, it’s the most powerful office in the world.

Duncan cites the hush money case against Trump in New York and Trump’s promotion of “unfounded conspiracy theories” that led to the events of Jan. 6, 2021, as reasons for his refusal to support the former president. This is coming from the same man who served as president of the Georgia state Senate when Trump met with state lawmakers to discuss his theories about the 2020 election. It’s almost as if Duncan had a front-row seat to the circus and is now trying to distance himself from the clown car.

But Duncan isn’t done yet! He takes aim at the “reluctant Trump supporters” who only back the former president because they disagree with Biden’s policies, arguing that Trump’s final year in office “was hardly a time of tranquility.” It’s like Duncan has selective amnesia and has conveniently forgotten about the global pandemic, civil unrest, and economic turmoil that marked Trump’s last year in office. But sure, let’s focus on the lack of “tranquility.”

In a move that surely made Bill Barr spit out his morning coffee, Duncan even dragged the former attorney general into the mix, criticizing him for his support of Trump. It’s like watching a political version of “Mean Girls,” except instead of high school drama, it’s grown men bickering about who’s the better Republican.

But the cherry on top of this sundae of absurdity is Duncan’s declaration that Trump “is not a Republican” and “doesn’t represent our brand” or “our future.” This coming from a man who has been a member of the Republican Party his “entire life” but is now willing to vote for Biden, a Democrat he calls a “decent person.” It’s like watching a vegan suddenly declare their love for a juicy steak—the cognitive dissonance is staggering.

Despite his newfound love for Biden, Duncan still wants Republicans to “work to elect GOP congressional majorities to block” Biden’s legislative agenda. It’s like he’s trying to have his cake and eat it too, except the cake is a giant mess of contradictions and hypocrisy.

In the end, Duncan’s op-ed reads like a desperate plea for attention from a man who has faded into political obscurity. He even tried to hitch his wagon to the bipartisan unity ticket promoted by No Labels, only to withdraw his name from consideration when it became clear that the organization couldn’t find a candidate willing to take on the thankless job.

So, there you have it, folks. Geoff Duncan, the former Georgia Lt. Gov. who once proudly called himself a Republican, has now decided to throw his support behind Joe Biden in a move that can only be described as a political midlife crisis. Will his endorsement make a difference in the upcoming election? Probably not. But at least we can all sit back and enjoy the show as Duncan tries to navigate the murky waters of political betrayal and self-serving grandstanding.
