Fox News Host Calls Republican Party 'Corrupt' And 'Dead'

The end of the Republican Party is near, according to Sean Hannity.

“It is a dead party,” the conservative Fox News political pundit said during a SiriusXM radio interview on Monday. “They are morally corrupt, they are weak. They are ineffective, they’re vision-less and they have no identity.”

Newsmax reported that Hannity told the program’s host, former chief White House strategist Steve Bannon: “I do believe I’ve never changed. I do believe the Republican Party left me, and I feel it is heartbreaking to me, because so many people trusted them in 2010, 2014 — ‘give us the House, give us the Senate.’” Referring to President Trump, he added: “Then they get the White House and they turn on a man that’s advocating the same principles that they have been quoting for years on the campaign trail.”

Hannity said Trump’s GOP critics “want to destroy this president; they want to stop this agenda.” He explained: “All these people that say they care about minorities and poor people and this identity political group and that identity political group, they are full of crap. This is the moment in a generation that we can fix this country, get those people back to work, out of poverty, off of food stamps, find homes, becoming energy independent, securing our border and making this a better country.”

The commentator blasted Republicans in the House of Representatives who previously supported the repeal of Obamacare but later reversed their position. GOP lawmakers have failed to end the controversial health-insurance program that former President Obama championed, despite their repeated pledges to do so. Several Republicans, including Arizona Sen. John McCain, joined Democrats earlier this year in maintaining the initiative, formally called the Affordable Care Act.

Another Fox News commentator, Juan Williams, also slammed the GOP this week. In an op-ed for The Hill, he asked: “Why are congressional Republicans failing to restrain the Republican in the White House?” The author and political analyst accused Trump of “threatening to drag the country beyond chaos.”

“Some Republicans cower in fear of Trump’s supporters, but a surprising number are just quitting Congress,” Williams wrote. “As of last week, 44 members of the House of Representatives and two members of the Senate have announced that they will retire, resign or run for another office by the end of the 115th Congress. Thirty of the 44 heading for the door are Republicans. … At the critical moment when the nation is dealing with an out-of-control Republican in the White House, GOP members are leaving instead of standing up to a dysfunctional president of their own party.”

The commentator continued: “Every Republican in this Congress will have to reckon with the part they played in allowing Capitol Hill to devolve into a pit of political polarization. Some did it to save their own seats from a more extreme Tea Party or Freedom Caucus candidate who threatened them with a primary. … Some congressional Republicans played along with the extremists to get attention from conservative websites and talk radio shows, setting themselves up for post-Congress careers as paid speakers or TV talking heads.”
