The GOP 'can't be saved' and should be 'smashed to bits': Former Republican Senate candidate
A former Republican candidate for Senate has determined that his one-time party is a lost cause that deserves to be demolished.
In an interview with the New York Times, former Washington State Republican party chairman Chris Vance said that he's been watching in horror as the GOP has been overtaken by crackpot conspiracy theorists being promoted by former President Donald Trump, including Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).
"They are intent on being a Trump cheering society," he said.
Vance was also very pessimistic about the chances of the party snapping out of it in the future.
"I don't think the party can be saved," he said. "I think it needs to be broken up, smashed and blown to bits."
Vance's comments were featured in a broader article about the GOP establishment's struggle to deal with Greene, who is a supporter of the QAnon conspiracy theory and who believes that former California Gov. Jerry Brown used a space laser to deliberately start forest fires.
The Times' sources said that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy "felt hamstrung by Ms. Greene and believed that the only way to deal with her was to tolerate her."
McCarthy's struggles with Greene were only amplified when the QAnon-loving Georgia congresswoman tweeted that Trump had told her that she has his full support.
