In a furious tweetstorm, a former adviser to the Ohio Republican Party expressed disgust at how far the GOP has fallen under Donald Trump and said the GOP may never recover.


According to Robert E. Kelly (who former Singapore Ambassador Kirk Wagner called” … one of the best voices on Asia in the world, used to work for the Ohio GOP and is not some left wing nut”) the GOP is willing to look the other way as long as the president keeps signing off on their tax cuts for the rich.

To get there though, Kelly, who now serves as a Professor of Political Science at Pusan National University, took a detour through Republican intransigence on gun control, the GOP’s history of racism, evangelical support for a “mean-spirited and adulterous” Trump, and callow GOP leaders like former Reps. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and John Boehner (R-OH) who stood by the “inept” president.
