Former Republican: The GOP has to go Trump's kidney stone earlier than it could possibly transfer on
Anti-Trump Republicans like Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney want you to believe that their counterparts are behind closed doors against Donald Trump. In public, however, very few GOP members are willing to speak out against the former president.
They even have powerful lawmakers like Lindsey Graham who say the party cannot move forward without him. But according to Barbara Comstock, a former Republican congresswoman, the party needs to get rid of him.
The ex-congresswoman from Virginia spoke to Nicolle Wallace. She began by comparing the former president to Red Scare's 1950s Congressman Joseph McCarthy.
"I know it will take a while," said Comstock. "Margaret Chase Smith, she came out in 1950, she only had six supporters chasing Joe McCarthy, but four years later 67 members and 9 senators voted to reprimand Joe McCarthy."
She continued, “It is painful to lose the political kidney stone, but we can all survive it. I think or democracy was built to last, it has survived tougher things than Donald Trump, who has been charged twice, failed guy who, at 47 percent, every day, won't be the future of everything that will ever happen White House are coming. If we nominate him, yes, that's not good because then we lose, but he won't be the future of anything. Except failure. Bad loser. Sore losers can gather anywhere around Donald Trump, but sore losers are still losers. "

Even now that he's banned from Twitter, Republicans are still terrified of Donald Trump. Comstock's hopes seem to be hoping more than anything right now.
