GOP Senator Ben Sasse Mocks Today's Republican Party as Angry Old Folks with Grievances
GOP Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska gave a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California on Thursday evening that encouraged Republicans to abandon the anger and irrational grievances of Trumpism and focus on the challenges and threats of the 21st. century.
Sasse: "We Republicans? We have a big choice to make. We can either continue to drift as a party that exists increasingly as a vehicle for the grievances of the angriest, oldest folks, or we could be a future-focused party of 2030."
Of course, he also didn't have much good to say about the Democratic Party ["elitists,"], but his comments on his own party will be what is remembered [and quoted] from the speech, especially since it was given at the Reagan Library.
Sen. Sasse has been one of the few GOP officials to criticize former President Donald Trump and he was one of only seven Republican senators who voted to convict Trump for inciting an insurrection after the January 6th attack on the Capital.
