The Ohio Republican ― the latest in a long line of Trump sycophants appearing to suggest the party will implode without the former president ― received a series of stinging reminders in response.

Keeping Donald Trump as the face and leader of the Republican party after decisive electoral defeats in 2018 and 2020 that gave Democrats the House, Senate and White House? Please proceed. https://t.co/PGBAK68kUo

When you lose the House, Senate and White House under a party's leader, it might be time to find a new one. https://t.co/p43BHpSQCD

Great! He's just led your party into losing the House, the Senate, and the Presidency.
By all means, keep him in charge. https://t.co/3n72Razc3e

LOL. This isn't admitting what you think it's admitting. Remember January 6th? Remember the insurrectionists? Yeah, the Former Guy is the leader of those people. Thanks for confirming. Again. https://t.co/Wz7xpklbk5

Right! Because he won re-election! No, wait. Because he won back the House for you! No, wait. Because he kept the Senate for you! No, wait. Because he kept Georgia red! No, wait. This is your "leader"? #Trump https://t.co/x6eXBA77CE
