Colbert suggestion for GOP: Rebrand Democrats as ‘Republicans’
RNC committee members are set to vote on a resolution to rebrand the Democratic Party as the “Democrat Socialist Party.” Stephen Colbert has another suggestion. “The GOP just needs a name for Democrats that reminds them of something they’ve had terrible experience with… We’ll call the Democrats ‘the Republicans.'”
“I think this strategy is foolproof,” Colbert concluded. “Because when you’ve spent the last 20 years poisoning your own name, the only logical step is to destroy somebody else’s.”
