Steve Schmidt has finally found his natural home: Joy Reid’s MSNBC show.
Appearing there this morning, Schmidt—who managed John McCain’s failed 2008 presidential campaign—first described President Trump as someone who “degrades his office, who divides the American people.” Schmidt then said:
“I think there is one question on the ballot in November of 2018. And it’s: do you want to put a check on President Donald Trump? And I think the answer to that question, in the overwhelming majority of the American people is ‘yes.'”
In so many words, Schmidt was urging people to vote Dem in 2018. The ultimate absurdity was that Schmidt described a vote for Dems as reflecting “fidelity to the Constitution, to the rule of law, to what makes this country a very special place.”
Given the chance, Dems would disregard the rule law to flood this country with people they view as their voters. They would pack the Supreme Court with Justices who would disregard the Constitution. They would destroy what has made this country a “very special place,” making it no more than another declining European nation.
STEVE SCHMIDT: The Republican Party has discarded every principle that it’s held dear on matters of policy. It has gotten in line behind a president who degrades his office, who divides the American people. They’re complicit in it with their silence and I think that there is one question on the ballot in November of 2018, and it’s do you want to put a check on president Donald Trump? And I think that the answer to that question in the overwhelming majority of the American people is yes and there’s going to be a coalition of people, I suspect, that don’t agree with each other on very many policies but agree 100% with each other on their concept of fidelity to the Constitution, to the rule of law, to what makes this country a very special place.
