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.”

‘You can’t vote no’: GOP canvasser gets schooled at Michigan certification meeting

Published

A Republican member of Michigan's Board of State Canvassers was confronted by a former state elections director over attempts to delay certification of the state's election results without a vote.

"I think, first of all, the answer is, of course, you can't vote 'no,'" Chris Thomas told Board member Norm Shinkle. "There is no 'no' in this circumstance. Each of you play a necessary role -- you're at the pinnacle of Michigan's democracy -- you're the endgame of the statewide elections for 2020."

Thomas went on to say that after 5.5 million people have exercised their right to vote, it's the Board's responsibility to make the results "which are already widely known, official."

Power-hungry Republicans do not fear Trump — it’s worse than that

For this reason, all the Republicans, with rare exception, stand in silence while the president prosecutes what must be called an attempted coup d’etat.
