A disillusioned conservative voter posted a testimonial that was shared by the Republican Accountability Project on Twitter over the weekend lamenting the political poison with which former President Donald Trump has toxified the GOP.

"I don't actually believe there is a Republican Party at this point. I think we have a Trumplican party, and like many other Republicans, I consider myself politically homeless," said the woman, who identified herself as Brenda. "There is nothing that I see in today's Republican Party that even remotely resembles the values, you know, the ideals, everything that I believed in that led me to join the Republican Party, all of that's gone. Where is the honor? Where is the integrity?"

Brenda and many others like her place the blame for the GOP's descent into darkness squarely on the actions of Trump, his vitriolic rhetoric, and his Make America Great Again movement's exploitation of right-wing racial animosity toward American society.

"What Trump did," Brenda explained, "is he took the hate, he took the ugly, he took the bigotry and the racism, and he laid it out on the Resolute Desk and he stamped the presidential seal all over it."
