Frum appeared this morning on CBC's "The Current" with host Anna Maria Tremonti.
Frum writes that "the thing to fear from the Trump presidency is not the bold overthrow of the Constitution, but the stealthy paralysis of governance. Not the defiance of law, but an accumulating subversion of norms. Not the deployment of state power to intimidate dissidents, but the incitement of private violence to radicalize supporters."
"When the crisis comes, a lot of Republicans in the Senate say, 'look if Donald Trump tries to arrest anybody, I'll be there to stop it,'" says Frum. "We need you a long time before then. We need you to work on those gums and to notice things are just festering. Don't wait for the dramatic hour to be a hero. If it does come to that it will be too late."
Frum also posits McConnell, Paul Ryan and congressional Republicans as a party of Quislings, Trump enablers, willing to succumb to Trump even at the cost of their party and their nation.
