Kinzinger: ‘I’ve Been a Republican Far Longer’ than Trump — Not Letting Him ‘Hijack My Party’

From: Meet the Press  

Anchor Chuck Todd: “How long do you fight to stay a member of a club or reform a club that doesn’t want you? I’m referring to the Republican Party.”

Adam Kinzinger: (R) IL “Look, I’ve been a Republican far longer than Donald Trump has, and I’m not going to let him come in and hijack my party and turn it into something that great people like Ronald Reagan and George W. and George H.W. Bush and all the great leaders back didn’t want it to be. I’m not going to let Donald Trump win at that. That’s what the fight is about. I believe in what we used to believe in with 21st-century solutions, though.”

He continued, “I think a lot of it is just an overload of information for people. So instead of kind of working through that information, a lot of people have just chosen when venue, what people, what personalities they trust and put their faith in it, I think similar to Donald Trump. I think people have to take responsibility for their own ability to work through misinformation, to remember what the Constitution is about, to be okay with losing power for a little bit, and let that actually reaffirm that you have to go out and win a next generation of conservatives. Right now, again, we’re sitting here with Donald Trump throwing up all the smokescreen of four months ago. We want to move on. It’s hard to do when he keeps bringing it back to a stolen election which, of course, wasn’t true.”

    Dear Adam, How has the Republican party been highjacked? Certainly not by you a what I call a RepubliCANT. ” I have been in this party far longer that Donald Trump” So explain to me what you have achieved over those far longer years and why you never became POTUS. Because of RINO’s like you, all of the good, peace, oil independance, secure borders, drug busting, best military is falling apart. YES the worl initially laughed at having Mr. Trump elected president, but they soon learned he was not going to place America Last in the eyes of the world. Now America is the laughing stock of the world, YOU do nothing you RINO’s that have spent “Far longer in this party” may as well have joined the Demoncrats and shadow president puppet masters.
