Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) called out the “pure lunacy” of the GOP and warned what will happen if his party continues the “failed path” paved by ex-President Donald Trump.
On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” host Jake Tapper referred to the example of a conspiracy theorist spewing baseless claims about the murder of George Floyd and COVID-19 at a Minnesota county Republican event.
“I keep hoping for your party to rejoin us on planet earth ? what’s going on?” Tapper asked Hogan.
Hogan, a frequent Trump critic who has condemned Republicans’ refusal to accept President Joe Biden won the 2020 election, replied:
“Well, I keep hoping that as well. I can’t really explain what’s going on, Jake. I mean it’s just pure lunacy. The kind of thing I’ve been speaking out against ever since President Trump was elected. But this has gotten just out of hand.”
