Republicans must vote Republican in the upcoming midterms even if they "loathe" President Donald Trump, Hugh Hewitt wrote in a column for The Washington Post.
True, the GOP is not the party of Ronald Reagan anymore; it is a "party of one with a fervent following in the tens of millions," wrote Hewitt, the nationally syndicated conservative radio host.
But while Trump has upended the Republican party, he has also dismantled the Democrats and unmasked the media, exposing their true colors, Hewitt writes.
"But what Trump has done to the Democrats and the establishment media won’t be undone for a long time. He has radicalized both into engines of extremist rhetoric and policy," Hewitt writes.
"Twitter feeds have become the best indicator of what the members of the media actually think. The collective mask hasn’t just slipped, it’s been ripped off," Hewitt writes.
Also true, Trump is a "giant wrecking ball on assumptions, standards, unwritten rules and codes of conduct," Hewitt writes, but there are also a "number of significant accomplishments."
- Two Supreme Court originalists.
- A military rebuild.
- A "cooking economy."
Hewitt's answer for November is a simple one: Voters must "return Republican legislative majorities that have figured out how to work with this most unusual of presidents."
"Electing Democrats to a majority in the House or the Senate at the height of the party’s lurch left would be a disaster," Hewitt writes.
"So even if you loathe the president, vote Republican," Hewitt writes.
"Both 2017 and 2018 have been polarizing and stressful for sure, but very productive for national security and economic vitality. Are most voters going to chose venting over their pocketbooks and their security? I hope not."
