Conservative MSNBC guest destroys the GOP: The party of Lincoln ‘has aligned with a moral idiot’

Published

on

Peter Wehner, a senior fellow at the conservative think tank Ethics and Public Policy Center, on Wednesday offered a harsh assessment of the current state of the Republican Party.

“Trump has not achieved that much — the tax cut was the big thing,” Wehner said on MSNBC. “Donald Trump is not a normal candidate, and that’s why what is going on is not a normal event.”

“This is a man who is a pathological liar, who is not only engaged on an assault on truth, he’s trying to annihilate truth, and the Republican Party is his sword and his shield,” he continued. “They are complicit in the lies and they’re complicit in the deep immorality — I don’t mean immorality just in terms of its sexual ethics, I’m talking a man who is basically at his heart a kind of Nietzschean, a person who believes that might makes right.”

“The Republican Party which was born in the era of the civil war and Lincoln, who is the greatest moral leader that America’s ever produced, has now aligned with this person who is a moral idiot.”

Wehner also said Christians who supported the president were “selling their soul” for judges.

“There’s a tremendous and huge discrediting effect that’s happened to evangelical Christians,” he said.

"I don't know him at all, don't know what he's about, don't where he comes from. I can tell you this -- I don't know him. I don't believe I've ever spoken to him.
