I say this before reading the article; i freely admit I’m interacting only with the headline, but:

The Tea Party got exactly what it wanted.

 https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/28/us/politics/tea-party-trump.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share 

If they didn’t get exactly what they wanted, why are they so happy with what they got?

They got Trump. They're delighted.

So:

Did they care about corruption? No.

Did they care about national security? No.

Did they care about terrorist attacks? No.

Did they care about fiscal responsibility? It is to laugh.

They got what they wanted. Trump. They're delighted.

That's the other part of what they wanted; our pain. They wanted our tears to drink, which would seem like a harsh thing to say, but they'll say so themselves, if you ask.

Or even if you don't.
