Any Republican politician who opposes Trump is going to be in for a rude awakening when their term is up.

At this point, if you’re against him, say goodbye to your future career in politics because any chance you might’ve had just flew out the window.

But how it plays out sometimes is quite funny – like in the instance of former Republican presidential nominee Sen. Ted Cruz who openly defied Donald Trump before he ended up groveling and crawling back to him.

Sen. John McCain and Sen. Lindsey Graham have also been outspoken, especially about certain policies of President Trump – which won’t bode well for them when they’re up for re-election.

Recently, the pair of desperate senators released a joint statement in response to the executive order immigration ban Trump just signed.

McCain and Graham wrote in their statement:

“Our government has a responsibility to defend our borders, but we must do so in a way that makes us safer and upholds all that is decent and exceptional about our nation. 

 It is clear from the confusion at our airports across the nation that President Trump’s executive order was not properly vetted. 

We are particularly concerned by reports that this order went into effect with little to no consultation with the Departments of State, Defense, Justice, and Homeland Security. 

Such a hasty process risks harmful results.  We should not stop green-card holders from returning to the country they call home.  We should not stop those who have served as interpreters for our military and diplomats from seeking refuge in the country they risked their lives to help. 

And we should not turn our backs on those refugees who have been shown through extensive vetting to pose no demonstrable threat to our nation, and who have suffered unspeakable horrors, most of them women and children.

Ultimately, we fear this executive order will become a self-inflicted wound in the fight against terrorism.  At this very moment, American troops are fighting side-by-side with our Iraqi partners to defeat ISIL.

But this executive order bans Iraqi pilots from coming to military bases in Arizona to fight our common enemies.  Our most important allies in the fight against ISIL are the vast majority of Muslims who reject its apocalyptic ideology of hatred.”

“This executive order sends a signal, intended or not, that America does not want Muslims coming into our country.  That is why we fear this executive order may do more to help terrorist recruitment than improve our security.”

Of course, Trump didn’t lie down.

No, he took to the public platform to fight back against their misguided ideology.

The irony with the statement released by McCain and Graham is that just days earlier they released a different joint statement praising President Trump for deferring to Secretary of Defense James Mattis on viewing torture as an ineffective tool for obtaining information.

And then days before that, they had released a joint statement supporting the nomination of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, saying

“[while we] still have concerns about his past dealings with the Russian government and President Vladimir Putin, we believe that Mr. Tillerson can be an effective advocate for U.S. interests.”

So exactly whose sides are these two on?

They release statements like a couple of paranoid schizophrenics with bipolar disorder praising Trump one second and then declaring war the next.

If these two don’t get their acts together and get in line soon, this will certainly be the last time they hold office.
