Will Stefanik be supported again?

On Jan. 13, The Daily Gazette reported (“Stefanik has big night at fundraiser”) that during a fundraiser for U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-Schuylerville, at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, former President Donald Trump showered Stefanik with praise and reportedly declared that she could be president in six years, thus solidifying her position as Trump’s go-to toady.
According to Merriam Webster, in 17th-century Europe, a toady or toad-eater was a showman’s assistant whose job was to make the boss look good.
The toad-eater would eat (or pretend to eat) what were supposed to be poisonous toads. His or her charlatan master would then “save” the toad-afflicted assistant by expelling the poison.
Elise Stefanik, by word and misdeed, has striven to take her place as Donald Trump’s number one toad-eater and by doing so she has forsaken the Constitution, embraced the dark side and abandoned any pretense of serving anyone but her master. And that raises the question: How long will Stefanik’s North Country voters continue to support her and the seditious former president?
