Ex-GOP Spox: Republicans Are On The Verge Of Becoming ‘Permanent Minority Party’
Kurt Bardella, a former spokesperson for the Republican-majority House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, told MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough on Monday that the GOP is a “sinking ship” as lawmakers maintain loyalty to President Donald Trump.
According to RawStory, Bardella’s comments came in response to a question about how November will play out for Trump and Republicans.
Bardella said after seeing “Republicans publicly starting to — some of them come out and change their public posture on Donald Trump,” he wonders how many more will eventually follow suit.
The former spokesman wondered if “this the beginning of something much bigger or is this just going to be an aberration?”
Bardella added: “Donald Trump — this is a sinking ship, it’s time to get off of this because if they don’t, I think that you’re going to see the Republican Party wipe themselves out into becoming a permanent minority party, much like what happened to the Republican Party in California out there.”
