Republican Ditches GOP And Slams Trump On The Way Out: “You Are Crude And Juvenile”



President Donald Trump is the most radical President that America has had for a very long time. He rode a wave of right wing populist fury to win the presidency and is now forcing his ultra conservative beliefs on the population of our liberal democracy through very badly thought out policy. During the two and a bit years that he has held the office of President of the United States and leader of the free world so far, he has dragged the Republican party much further to the right than anyone could have imagined. And going into 2020, it seems like that move might be about to backfire on him in the most spectacular way possible.

Recent reports have revealed that one of the longest serving Republicans in the country is ditching the party of which he has been a member for his entire political career in order to cross the floor and join the Democrats. To make matters even worse for Trump, this guy explicitly pointed out that the President’s behavior is the reason he feels he cannot be a Republican any more, calling him, among other things, “crude and juvenile”:

Iowa’s longest-serving Republican state lawmaker is ditching the party in a protest of what he called President Donald Trump’s “unacceptable behavior” and is joining the Democrats. State Rep. Andy McKean, a moderate from eastern Iowa whose 29 years in the legislature include stints in the House and Senate, announced his party switch at a news conference Tuesday. He called Trump “a poor example for the nation and particularly for our children” and said he’ll seek re-election in 2020 as a Democrat.

“With the 2020 president election looming on the horizon, I feel as a Republican that I need to be able to support the standard bearer of our party. Unfortunately, that is not something I am able to do,” McKean said Tuesday of Trump. “He sets, in my opinion, a poor example for the nation and particularly for our children by personally insulting — often in a crude and juvenile fashion — those who disagree with him, being a bully at a time when we are attempting to discourage bullying, his frequent disregard for the truth and his willingness to ridicule or marginalize people for their appearance, ethnicity or disability,” he said.

This has got to sting for Trump. With any luck, this will snowball into more and more Republicans seeing the light and abandoning Trump once and for all.
