Thanks to Donald Trump and the absolute havoc that he has unleashed on the Republican Party, successfully turning an already struggling party into a sh*tshow of chaos and instability, many die-hard conservatives have chosen to abandon the GOP. Today, the Republican Party officially lost one more high-profile Republican — and it’s driving Trump insane.
Early this morning, former FBI Director James Comey stated that he is no longer a Republican in an interview. On the ABC News podcast Start Here, Comey stated that the GOP “has left me.” When asked if Comey still saw himself as a member of the party, Comey pointed out the GOP’s failure to stay true to its values in the Trump era:
“No. The Republican party has left me, and many others.”
Comey also brought up how the morale of the party has disintegrated under Trump and used the example of the RNC-created website “LyinComey.com,” which was inspired by Trump’s nickname for Comey and made to damage Comey’s media tour. Comey said:
“I just think they’ve lost their way and I can’t be associated with it.”
The ex-FBI director also stated that the GOP began going downhill “probably over the Trump presidency.” He continued to call Trump out by name:
“These people don’t represent anything I believe in. I see the Republican Party, as near as I can tell, reflects now entirely Donald Trump’s values. It doesn’t reflect values at all. It’s transactional, it’s ego-driven, it’s in service to his ego. And it’s, I think, consoling itself that we’re going to achieve important policy goals — a tax cut or something.”
Ouch. Telling by the tweet Trump posted this morning, Comey’s statements drove Trump absolutely nuts. This morning, Trump went off on yet another anti-Comey rant:
“Slippery James Comey, the worst FBI Director in history, was not fired because of the phony Russia investigation where, by the way, there was NO COLLUSION (except by the Dems)!”
Unfortunately for Trump, more Americans stand behind Comey than the president!
