Rachel Maddow stated that Donald Trump is testing the GOP with his use of Nazi-esque rhetoric to see what the party will tolerate as an institution.
This puts pressure on every member of the party to clarify their stance and values.
Maddow highlighted the importance of political institutions standing up for their beliefs in the face of extremist rhetoric and noted that the GOP is the only institution currently in a position to do so. (Trending: Photos Released Of Cocaine Found In White House)
“That is him testing the political party that he says he’s going to lead” just “one year out from the election, to see what they will tolerate as an institution,” warned Maddow.
The MSNBC host said “every single member of that party will now have to answer whether this is who they are, whether this is what they stand for, whether this is the cause of their party.”
“In real life,” Maddow claimed “a country under threat stands up for itself when the institutions that make up the civic and political life of the country stand up and say what they’re for and what they can no longer stand for.”
