NBC's Steve Schmidt Excoriates GOP's "Intellectual Rot" For Empowering Donald Trump
Steve Schmidt, MSNBC Analyst, former advisor to John McCain had the best take down of Trump and the Republican Party this morning on Meet the Press.
Steve Schmidt: Over the course of this campaign the Republican Party has been a disgrace to this country by empowering Donald Trump since it is painfully obvious that he has no idea of what it takes to be President. Trump has no dignity to hold office and lacks the capacity to be commander in chief.
Schmidt went further by saying that this race has exposed the intellectual rot and hypocrisy in the GOP and the need for a lot of soul searching if they want to rebuild the Republican Party.
“Over the course of this last year, these GOP candidates have repeatedly put their party before their country,” Schmidt exclaimed. He continued, “Ignoring what is so obviously clear to anybody who is watching his complete and total manifest unfitness for office.”
Although I’m not a Republican I admire Steve Schmidt to honestly tell it like is about Trump and the Republican Party. The debate tonight is must see television.
