Ron Reagan appeared on MSNBC with an excoriation of Donald Trump with some of his harshest language to date. Moreover, he equated those in the Republican Party supporting Trump as traitorous and much more. If his admonishment does not give many Republicans pause, there is no hope for the party.

Ron Reagan pointed out that there is no longer room for moderation in the Republican Party. He said the party is now the Party of Trump.
"That will, of course, last only as long as Mr. Trump lasts," Reagan said. "And Mr. Mueller may have something to say about that."
Ron Reagan then laid into Republican politicians appeasing Trump. He said those supporting Trump had to be post-factual, comfortable with un-reality, and engage in a traitorous behavior.
"The Russian efforts on social media, the Internet, regarding our democratic system are ongoing." Ron Reagan said. "And they will be going in 2018, the midterm elections. So for Mr. Trump to go out and say that this is all a hoax; to insist, to continue to insist that this is a hoax is aiding and abetting the Russian effort right now. Whatever happened during the campaign, that's one thing. And Mr. Mueller will you know get to the bottom of that I'm sure. But right now Mr. Trump and his fellow Republicans are aiding and abetting the Russians, the Russian effort to sabotage our democracy by digging in their heels and pretending this is all a hoax, and it didn't really happen."
Ron Reagan had a parting shot for Donald Trump that everyone should heed.
"Donald Trump is unfit for office by any measure, the man is unfit for office and people like Bob Corker and Jeff Flake and many many Republicans, as well as virtually all Democrats, realize that," Ron Reagan said. "People who are close to the situation understand that. This is a danger to our country. It is a danger to the world. And this is a central fact. Instead of chasing tweets you know like we do; he throws out these things and we all go running after them, we need to grapple with a central fact here. This is a deeply damaged human being in the White House right now. And he is dragging our country down, and it's a danger."
Ron Reagan hit the nail on the head.
