‘Republican policies attract the worst possible people’

The Nation’s senior justice correspondent, Elie Mystal, said on CNN’s “The Lead” on Tuesday that he thinks “Republican politics attract the worst people possible.”

Network political commentator SE Cupp said: “Because people like Kanye West sometimes say things that seem close to the right-wing political agenda, they are quite willing to exploit it and, yes, even defend rank anti-Semitism. Because Tommy Tuberville stands at a Trump rally and says the right things and names the right haters, Republicans agree with his naked racism. Herschel Walker is an obvious, obvious hypocrite. Whatever you think about abortion and I don’t like abortion, he’s an obvious hypocrite, and it doesn’t matter. It’s because Republicans have decided that politics is more important than decency, honesty, conviction, integrity, any of those things. None of this matters, even if you are anti-Semitic, racist or hypocritical.

Mystal said, “Is this where I can say I told you everything? It’s been their party for a long time. At some point, Republicans have to look at themselves, look at the kinds of policies they promote, look at how they want the country to be, and ask themselves why are our policies attracting the worst people possible? As if they had to ask that question at some point to move on from what happened to their party.
