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.

“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.
