WP: Trump is killing the Republican Party (Joe Scarborough)

By Joe Scarborough July 16 at 6:02 PM

I did not leave the Republican Party. The Republican Party left its senses. The political movement that once stood athwart history resisting bloated government and military adventurism has been reduced to an amalgam of talk-radio resentments. President Trump’s Republicans have devolved into a party without a cause, dominated by a leader hopelessly ill-informed about the basics of conservatism, U.S. history and the Constitution.

America’s first Republican president reportedly said , “Nearly all men can stand adversity. But if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.” The current Republican president and the party he controls were granted monopoly power over Washington in November and already find themselves spectacularly failing Abraham Lincoln’s character exam.

1. The Republican Party "left it's senses" after Eisenhower


Old Joe is moving kind of slow.
Way behind.

2. Wisdom from the class of Gingrich.

If Joe had not been burnt so badly by Trump it would be a very different story.
