Carley, do we even need the Carley? Do we even need the Republican Party, Washington, Post Self proclaimed conservative columnist getting slammed for asking that in her latest op ed in it, Jennifer Rubin criticizes the Trump cultists she says are driving the party into the ground. Elizabeth Pipko joins me, column says. Maybe the real question is not what the Republican Party will believe or whether we need it at all. Perhaps there is no decent party of the right to be had. What is your response to that number? One wow in general, it seems, like everything has been so politicized, latelying theres, nothing to take from that,
except for an attempt to divide the country. Further its an you attempt attempt to M the Republican Party must be divided in the country. Carley we have tv shows getting canceled tv getting canceled.
