Steve Schmidt Officially Registers As A Democrat And Calls The GOP A Grave Threat To Democracy

Published by

Former GOP strategist Steve Schmidt said on Tuesday that the Republican Party in its current form must never again win a presidential election.

During an interview with MSNBC’s Joy Reid, Schmidt said that while the Trump-stained GOP’s behavior over the past month has been a “farce,” it was still an assault on American democracy

“It was a joke in a lot of ways, but it was a coup. It was a failed coup,” Schmidt said. “And the way you get to a second coup in most countries is by having your first unsuccessful one.”

Schmidt said:

What I believe is the pro-democracy side of this coalition can never again lose the presidential election to the pro-autocracy side – because we may not have another election after that one. This played out as a farce, mostly, over the month of November except for the actual poisoning of the polity. It was a joke in a lot of ways, but it was a coup. It was a failed coup. And the way you get to a second coup in most countries is by having your first unsuccessful one. This is shameful conduct, dangerous conduct, and the country is in a dangerous hour, and unlike one we have ever been in before because of the seditious activities of these Republican attorneys general and members of the House.

Schmidt’s announcement that he was registering as a Democrat comes two years after he left the Republican Party over Donald Trump’s family separation policy.

“At the end of the day, there’s now one pro-democracy political party in the United States of America, and that’s the Democratic Party,” Schmidt said on Tuesday.
