GOP Governor Rips House Republicans, Says They Are 'Ruining America' in Brutal Takedown

GOP Governor Rips House Republicans, Says They Are 'Ruining America' in Brutal Takedown

The 2020 election saw Democrats retake control of Congress, but it also saw a wave of far-right Republican lawmakers elected to the House of Representatives.

Among those are prominent conspiracy theorist Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, firearm fetishist Lauren Boebert of Colorado, and Christian fascist Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina.

Others have been in Congress for years, such as Paul Gosar of Arizona, whom Congress recently stripped of his committee assignments after he posted a bizarre cartoon featuring him killing Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.

Exacerbating the violent rhetoric of these representatives is House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's refusal to emphatically condemn their actions and get his caucus back on track. Meanwhile, McCarthy has eagerly rebuked Republicans like Congresswoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming for dissenting with former President Donald Trump and what has become the platform of today's Republican party.

Now, New Hampshire's Republican Governor Chris Sununu is calling the party out for "ruining America" with its vilification of anti-Trump Republicans and dismissal of disturbing rhetoric from the party's rightmost wing.

Watch below.

Sununu, pointing to blowback toward Cheney and GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois for their votes to censure Gosar, recently said:

"That's kind of that social media mob mentality that's built up in this country where we don't agree with one issue so we're going to attack them, we're going to vilify one person or one individual. We've got to get beyond that, because culturally, it's really, really ruining America."

He continued:

" Politics in its entirety on both sides of the aisle in Washington is screwed up. They got their priorities all wrong, they focus on the wrong things. They don't talk about balancing budgets, fixing healthcare, immigration reform, social security and Medicare … instead we spend all of our time focusing on these nitpicky things."

Some were pleasantly surprised by the takedown.

Others took issue with Sununu blaming "both sides" for the problem.

Sununu is considered a potential contender for the GOP presidential nomination in 2024.

Iowa AG Dragged For Ironically Boasting At RNC That Republicans Put Criminals 'In Jail'

Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird was criticized after telling the audience at the Republican National Convention that the GOP is known to "put criminals where they belong: in jail"—only to then encourage everyone to vote for convicted felon former President Donald Trump.

In May, Trump became the first former president to be convicted of felony crimes. The jury found him guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records to conceal hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels to illegally influence the 2016 election. His sentencing was set for July 11 but has now been delayed in the wake of a Supreme Court decision granting him sweeping immunity protections.
