I think we are in a McCarthyite period. McCarthy made his claims about Commies in the government for FOUR YEARS before he was censured. The "red scare" lasted that long and the repercussions even longer.
In the 1950s, no Republican dated speak out against McCarthy for fear of looking "weak on communism". I think the GOP is in the same boat this time. They are terrified of losing office, and so simply will not challenge Trump -- at least, not until voters have already done so.
