Trump has ‘destroyed’ the GOP and the nation needs to ‘grind him into the ground’: George Conway

Published

on

The Republican Party may not ever be able to restore the party — even after Donald Trump leaves office.

George Conway, the longtime GOP lawyer who is married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, explained his thoughts on the future of the party to New York Times columnist Frank Bruni.

“I personally think that the Republican brand is probably destroyed,” Conway said.

“It’s destroyed by it having become essentially a personality cult,” he explained.

Bruni asked if Conway will be “a man without a party for the rest of your days?”

“Probably,” he said. “It makes me tremendously sad.”

Charlie Sykes, a founder and editor-at-large of The Bulwark, a conservative publication that does not hesitate to criticize Trump, agreed.

“It’s naïve to think that the Republican Party is going to snap back to sanity anytime soon. The fact that people are talking about Tucker Carlson in 2024 shows you how far they’ve gone,” Sykes explained.

Even though there may not be a party for them to return to after Trump, Conway is not slowing down his criticism of the president. Here’s some of his recent thoughts on the topic:

Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is the projected loser of the state's Republican primary for the U.S. Senate, the Associated Press reported Tuesday.

Kobach, a longtime crusader against immigration, headed up President Donald Trump's so-called "voter fraud commission" before it was disbanded after failing to identify any widespread instances of fraud.

Kobach unsuccessfully ran for governor in 2018.

Here's some of what people were saying about Kobach's defeat:

Maddow reveals the ‘shocking sign’ the White House may be betting Trump is going to lose in 2020

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow returned from vacation to host the Tuesday evening edition of her MSNBC show.

Maddow noted, "in 91 days we all get to decide if the guy who's currently in charge of how we're responding to this epidemic should stay in the job for four more years or if Democratic candidate Joe Biden would do better at this."

"It's honestly hard to know what it will be like for a president to stand for re-election with 200,000 dead Americans as a key metric from his first term, while he asks for a second term, but we're going to talk tonight about how some of that is going to work and some of what we can see coming down the pike," she explained. "And a lot of it is very worrying, in terms of the institutions of our democracy and what we count on to keep us a constitutional republic."

Trump may break with ‘presidential norms’ and give GOP convention speech from the White House lawn: report

Published

on

On Tuesday, The Washington Post reported that Republicans are exploring the possibility of President Donald Trump giving his presidential re-nomination speech from the South Lawn of the White House.

"The decision to stage the most high-profile political event of Trump’s reelection campaign at the national seat of presidential power would be just the latest break by Trump in presidential norms, which have historically drawn clear lines between official business of the president and campaign events," reported Michael Scherer and Josh Dawsey. "People involved in the planning said that no final decision had been made on the location of the Republican convention’s celebratory events. Trump abandoned plans to hold the full convention in Charlotte, and later Jacksonville, Fla., over concerns that large crowds could spread the novel coronavirus."
