The Democratic Party has become "a sideshow circus-car full of clowns" hell bent in taking down President Donald Trump rather than rebuilding its weakened power base, onetime Republican super-lobbyist Jack Abramoff told Newsmax TV on Tuesday.
"All they care about is regaining power," Abramoff told host Bill Tucker on "America Talks Live." "They still can't believe that they lost power, I mean, [Hillary Clinton's] now infamous interview of late where she just went through a litany of excuses as to why she lost is really tragic, pathetic more than anything else.
"But these Democrats can't seem to get beyond the 'we want power' motif and, frankly, with a world on fire, with the radical Muslims attacking and killing people all over the place, they just don't care about what's really going on in the world.
"They care about kicking Donald Trump out if they somehow can figure out a way to do it – which they can't – and regaining power. It's pathetic."

Abramoff – who served four years in prison after pleading to conspiracy and wire fraud in a lobbying scandal – said ex-FBI chief James Comey's Thursday testimony in Congress, in which he will allegedly might say Trump pressured him to drop a probe of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's ties to Russia, will amount to nothing.
"Nobody really cares about this," he told Tucker. "There's nothing, it seems, that the president or anyone in the administration did that was wrong, so just let it end already, and get it back to the business of running the country.
"I think [Russian President Vladimir] Putin, frankly, put it better than almost anyone: there's something wrong with people in the media over here, and people, god they're obsessed with this stupidity.
"The world is on fire, President Trump is the world's best fireman, frankly, at this point. Let him go out and put the fires out . . . build the infrastructure . . . get the taxes cut, get rid of this Obamacare program . . . repair our relations with our allies, and go after and destroy radical Islam."
Abramoff said that along with Democrats wanting Trump out of the White House, the mainstream media is fired up by thinking about how President Richard Nixon was forced to resign in the Watergate scandal.
"The media want Donald Trump out of office," Abramoff said. "They kind of remember their forbearers who drove Richard Nixon from office . . . and they want to be the generation to drive Donald Trump from office.
"Well unlike Richard Nixon, and every other Republican, Donald Trump isn't leaving office so easily, and nor by the way Donald Trump, it seems, has done anything. Until somebody comes up with something, there's nothing to talk about.
"The Democratic Party, unfortunately, instead of getting itself in order and being a competitive political party, instead of a side show circus car full of clowns, continues these idiocies."
He said he believes Trump will likely be elected to a second term in 2020 “thanks to the stupidity in part of the Democratic Party and also, by the way, thanks in large part to the fact that Trump keeps his promises, darn it, and gets things done.”
Abramoff and his former business partner Adam Kidan were sent to prison in 2006 after admitting they concocted a fake $23 million wire transfer to make it appear they had made a large cash contribution to the $147.5 million purchase of SunCruz Casinos. Based on that fake transfer, lenders provided the pair with $60 million in financing.
Abramoff is the author of "Capitol Punishment: The Hard Truth About Washington Corruption From America's Most Notorious Lobbyist," published by WND Books. He was portrayed by Kevin Spacey in the 2010 R-rated docudrama "Casino Jack."
