Michael Reagan: ‘I Am Glad My Father is Not Alive to Watch This’

Michael Reagan Ronald Reagan Donald Trump

It sounds like the son (the conservative one) of Ronald Reagan, Michael Reagan, a lifelong Republican, is outraged at both Donald Trump and the Republican Party and he’s not being shy about it.

Michael Reagan, president of the Reagan Legacy Foundation, who announced in June that he would not vote for Donald Trump in the California GOP primary (he didn’t reveal who he was voting for), when Trump had all but sewed up the nomination, is livid over Trump’s statement over the weekend suggesting that Hillary Clinton had been unfaithful to Bill Clinton.

After the news broke of Trump’s unfounded allegation, delivered to a crowd during a speech at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania, Reagan called on Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus to “take a stand.”

Michael Reagan predicted that his father Ronald Reagan, would repeat his famous quote when he left the Democrat Party to become a Republican, as he did in 1962, 18 years before becoming President of the United States and after serving two terms as California’s Republican governor.

“I didn’t leave the Democratic Party,” Reagan famously said. “The party left me,” after realizing that the party had become a hotbed for communists.

Reaching a boiling point, Reagan said, after receiving pushback from Trump supporters on Twitter, that he’s getting to the point where he just doesn’t “give a sh*t” about Donald Trump. He also predicted that Nancy Reagan — if she were alive — would be so repulsed that she would likely vote for Hillary.

Michael Reagan said that he was “embarrassed by Trump” and the applause he receives for suggesting that Hillary cheats on Bill:

Furthermore, Michael Reagan declared that the Republican Party is no longer the “Party of Reagan” and wrote that he is grateful that his father isn’t alive to see the unprincipled mess it has become.

As you can see from the above, Michael Reagan is, of course, no fan of Hillary Clinton’s either. Reagan predicted that his father, if alive, would advise Republican voters to vote for the party down ticket in order to continue GOP majorities in both the House and the Senate in order to stop Hillary Clinton, should she be the next president.
