GOP Strategist Quits 'Corrupt' Party Of 'Feckless Cowards,' Will Vote For Democrats

Veteran GOP strategist Steve Schmidt renounced his Republican Party membership on Wednesday and pledged to vote for Democrats in an effort to preserve "what is right and decent" in the United States.

In a series of scathing tweets, Schmidt blasted the GOP as "corrupt, indecent and immoral" and "fully the party of Trump."

"It is filled with feckless cowards who disgrace and dishonor the legacies of the party's greatest leaders," tweeted Schmidt, an MSNBC political analyst who has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump. "Today the GOP has become a danger to our democracy and our values."

Schmidt, who served as an adviser in the George W. Bush White House, strongly condemned the Trump administration's policy of separating families caught illegally crossing the border into the U.S.

"This child separation policy is connected to the worst abuses of humanity in our history," he tweeted. "It is connected by the same evil that separated families during slavery and dislocated tribes and broke up Native American families. It is immoral and must be repudiated."

Schmidt, who said in July that Trump had the "impulse control of a little child," joins a growing chorus of political pundits and lawmakers to rebuke the administration's practice of separating children from parents facing prosecution for illegally crossing the border.

"All Americans are rightly horrified by the images we are seeing on the news, children in tears pulled away from their mothers and fathers," Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said. "This must stop. Now."

On November 6, America will go to the polls to elect members for each of the 435 House seats and 35 of the 100 Senate seats in Congress. Donald Trump and the Republicans will hope to maintain their majority in both houses, but with the Democrats having a healthy lead in the polls, it is believed that they have a decent chance of taking the House of Representatives. A Democrat victory in either chamber would grant powers to open investigations into President Trump, so the stakes are high. The latest polling and forecasts indicate that Donald Trump and the Republicans could hold onto both houses, although the House of Representatives looks the more likely to fall to the Democrats. But the...
