Dan Savage: GOP Gathered ‘Every Rube, Racist, Nutjob, Sexist, Homophobe,’ And ‘They Voted For One Of Their Own’

Writer Dan Savage argued that the Republican Party has “been cranking up, gathering together every rube, racist, nutjob, sexist, homophobe in the country, calling them Republicans” on Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time.”

Savage stated, “[T]hat’s the problem for the Republican Party, because they’ve reached a point where they need to…dissolve the base and elect a new one, and they can’t. The problem is the base. They’ve been cranking up, gathering together every rube, racist, nutjob, sexist, homophobe in the country, calling them Republicans, and finally, they voted for one of their own.”
