CNN's Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon Issue Scathing Assessments Of Donald Trump's GOP

"The GOP is no longer grand, the mighty pachyderm is packing it in."

CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon on Wednesday criticized what the GOP has become under President Donald Trump.

Cuomo accused Republican lawmakers who savaged Trump ahead of the 2016 election but now wholeheartedly endorse him of “feeding off the teat of fealty.”

“I argue that the GOP is no longer grand, the mighty pachyderm is packing it in,” Cuomo said. “In fact, Trump is not a member of the GOP.”

“You are all now part of the Trump Organization,” the “Cuomo Prime Time” host added. “You sound more like representatives of his failed casinos than people elected to check his power.”

He then handed it over to “CNN Tonight” host Lemon, who lamented how the GOP is now “a party of hypocrites” who are either afraid of Trump or just want power.
