Maybe in the past tense. Now, at least on the federal level, I have my doubts.
Maybe I'm naive, but I think most people in the government genuinely want to help people. I think there are republicans who genuinely believe that lower taxes are beneficial to society, abortion is wrong, government regulation is bad, and the right to own guns is important. I'm not saying I agree with these things, but they're not absurd positions to hold. And they saw Trump as a means to an ends. But, then they had to accept and endorse all of the batshit crazy things that came along with it. And, since nobody wants to believe they're supporting a demented wannabe fascist, they started rationalizing.
It's like in Captain America: Winter Soldier. S.H.I.E.L.D. recognized the value of Hydra and what they could do. They thought they could use Hydra, but realized too late that Hydra was using them.
It will be interesting to see what happens with the Republican party. Trump is trying to use his cult to hold them hostage, which is what he's doing in Georgia. With the runoffs happening so soon, they can't afford to openly oppose him right now. But after that... They have two years to try and separate themselves from him. I don't think they can win in 2022 and 2024 with him commanding half the party. How they fight that, I dunno.
