And in no uncertain terms:

Personally, I’ve thrown up my hands in despair at the debased state of the GOP. I don’t want to be identified with the party of the child-snatchers. ..

…a vote for the GOP in November is also a vote for egregious obstruction of justice, rampant conflicts of interest, the demonization of minorities, the debasement of political discourse, the alienation of America’s allies, the end of free trade and the appeasement of dictators.

That is why I join Will and other principled conservatives, both current and former Republicans, in rooting for a Democratic takeover of both houses in November. Like postwar Germany and Japan, the Republican Party must be destroyed before it can be rebuilt.

The GOP must be de-Nazified and de-Axisfied, get it? Because of course what’s happening now in the US with Republicans is exactly like that, and the Democrats are kind of like the Allies.

I bow to no one in my discussion of Trump’s flaws, but I recognize his strengths—particularly since taking office. I have seen no obstruction of justice, egregious or otherwise. Rampant conflicts of interest are part and parcel of Democrats, more so even than Republicans, and certainly part of politics in general. Republicans are not demonizing minorities—if Boot were to pay attention to what is actually being said for the most part rather than what his MSM colleagues say is being said. As for allies being alienated—well, it depends on the allies (Eastern Europe seems rather happy). And allies would disagree with the policies of any robust GOP, even if Will and Boot designed that policy. I’m not too happy with the trade situation, but I’m willing to see what happens, and I certainly don’t put “free trade” on a pedestal either. As for “appeasement of dictators”—that’s what I saw with Obama, not Trump. In fact, the Democrats Boot wishes to put in power don’t just appease dictators, they revere and wish to emulate them.

What is it with these guys, Boot and Will and their ilk? Their revulsion to Trump is so great that they have joined forces with people they have worked against their entire lives—Democrats, liberals, and particularly the left, which, if Boot has been paying any attention lately, has taken over the Democratic Party.
