Conservative consultant and commentator Tara Setmayer announced she was officially leaving the GOP after watching this election.
The 25-year Republican explained that “as a principled conservative and more importantly, American, I can no longer associate with a GOP that’s fully embraced the malignancy of Trumpism.”
She then hashtagged “Country over Party.”
In a video explaining her position, Setmayer welcomed colleagues from the Lincoln Project and told them the way that the GOP has “abdicated their responsibilities and made a mockery of their oaths of office” led her to leave. She said that they now stand for everything that she is against as a conservative.
“After last night I said that I would always reassess my role in the Republican Party depending on how this election went,” she continued. “I was cautiously optimistic and hopeful that there would be a repudiation of Trumpism and that would give Republicans like myself a possibility to rebuild and root this out and build the party anew.”
After almost 70 million people voting for Trump “a sociopath” Setmayer said flatly, “I’m done. I’m out.”
