A Washington Post columnist unloaded on President Donald Trump and former members of his administration in an unhinged rant calling for the Republican Party to be “burned down” leaving no “survivors.”
Jennifer Rubin, the Post’s alleged “conservative” writer, took her hatred for Trump to a new level as she slammed former Trump officials on Sunday’s “AM Joy” on MSNBC.

Discussing the departure of former White House press secretaries Sean Spicer and Sarah Sanders, Rubin declared they should be “shunned” for the rest of their lives after MSNBC host Joy Reid spewed that “this is an extreme administration that is dangerous.”
“What we should be doing is shunning these people. Shunning and shaming these people is a statement of moral indignation,” Rubin smugly announced.
“These people are not fit for polite society,” she declared, citing how a former Trump staffer was employed by the University of Virginia for a time.
“I think that it’s’ absolutely abhorrent that any institution of higher learning, any news organization or any entertainment organization that has a news outlet would hire these people,” she said, reacting to discussion on Spicer being named part of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” cast and Sanders moving on to the Fox News Channel.
“It’s not only that Trump has to lose, but that all his enablers have to lose — we have to collectively, in essence, burn down the Republican Party,” Rubin announced, with zero pushback from any of the other liberals on the show who would cry foul if the comments were uttered by Trump or other conservatives.
“We have to level them because if there are survivors — if there are people who weather this storm, they will do it again — they will take this as confirmation that, ‘Hey, it just pays to ride the waves — look at me, I’ve made it through,'” she added.
“This has become a dysfunctional anti-government party. That is not what the country wants and what it needs. And the proof is in the pudding,” Rubin argued.
“The reason they engage in voter suppression is because their underlying agenda is very unpopular. No one’s in favor, it turns out, of taking away people’s health care. People don’t like it when you come after Medicaid and Medicare,” she added.
The allegedly right-leaning columnist went on to encourage Democrats while continuing her violent rhetoric against Republicans, noting her hopes for a “leveled” GOP.
“And if they don’t, then they’re going to lose election after election. And, frankly, that would be fine, too,” Rubin stated. “My hope is that Democrats don’t blow it. My hope is that Democrats are able to pull together a coalition that’s large enough to govern, and that we can have some sane governance for a period of time.”
Rubin apparently did not see any issues with her calls for violent opposition to the “manic president,” as she referred to Trump in an opinion piece for The Washington Post.
We don’t need a medical diagnosis or the 25th Amendment to conclude Trump is crazy in the colloquial sense — cuckoo, nuts, non compos mentis, off his rocker, unhinged. Even Rs who like tax cuts or the judges understand this is not normal behavior https://t.co/THioS0igmg

Pretending he is a normal president, which his party and too often the media do, is, well, crazy. It’s all that craziness we want to end, too.
