Conservative Radio Host Hugh Hewitt Says GOP Should Change Convention Rules to Dump Trump
Conservative talk show host Hugh Hewitt argued Wednesday morning that the Republican Party should make an unprecedented effort to change the Republican National Convention rules to allow them to dump Donald Trump as their nominee.
“It’s like ignoring stage-four cancer. You can’t do it, you gotta go attack it,” Hewitt said. “And right now the Republican Party is facing — the plane is headed towards the mountain after the last 72 hours.”
Hewitt said he disagreed with Republican senators like Lindsey Graham and Mark Kirk who said they could not vote for their party’s nominee. “I wanna support the nominee of the party, but I think the party ought to change the nominee. Because we’re going to get killed with this nominee.”
“I have never said that!” he stressed. “I waited until after the primary was over, I stayed Switzerland to the end, and in 72 hours, dovetailed to that.”
“They ought to get together and let the convention decide,” he concluded. “And if Donald Trump pulls over a makeover in the next 4 to 5 weeks, great, they can keep him. It would be better if he had done so 5 weeks ago.”
Hewitt called for either the replacement of Donald Trump by changing the rules or a major “personality transplant in Trump Tower.” But unless something changes, he warned, Republicans are headed for disaster.
