WATCH: GOP Congressman Just Called Trump “Stupid” on Live TV. Wow.

The longer Trump is president, the more people are distancing themselves from this crazy, Twitter-wielding man. In fact, former Republican Congressman David Jolly turned against his party’s leader on live TV.

In a recent CNN interview, Jolly said, “There’s a bigger issue, whether this president is intellectually qualified to be President of the United States.”

The comment was in response to CNN anchor Poppy Harlow asking him whether Trump needs to apologize for saying that Obama had him wiretapped during the election.

Harlow responded to the comment by saying, “You’re saying he’s not smart enough? That’s quite a charge.”

“I think [Trump is] learning about his own health care bill listening to you and Chris in the morning. He does not practice in details, nor understands the finer points of domestic or foreign policy,” Jolly replied.

Jolly went on to say, “When he throws out a wiretap charge, what does that mean? We know he’s lying about that, but he doesn’t understand what a FISA court is. He doesn’t understand that he just made an allegation of a felony, he doesn’t understand that he’s crippling the United States on a world stage. That speaks to more than credibility, that speaks to intellect.”

Now, Republicans are struggling to defend Donald Trump and the so-called reality that he lives in.

Rick Santorum, the failed presidential candidate had this to say in an attempt to defend Trump, “Well, I just think it’s an absurd claim to suggest that the president doesn’t have the intellect to be president. President Trump has run a multi-billion dollar organization. He ran the most, I would say, historic campaign from the standpoint of coming out from nowhere to be elected president.”

Yes, he was able to swindle and lie to people to make some money and now he is perpetuating those same lies to the American people.

This is just the first of the Republicans to break against Trump. Once people realize how bad his healthcare plan is, Americans are going to put pressure on their elected representatives to oppose him and his disaster healthcare plan.

Hopefully, if enough Republicans turn against Trump, he will not have the votes in the Senate or the House to pass his damaging legislation and we can prevent him from permanently damaging this country.

Now that James Comey and other intelligence officials have come out and said that there is no evidence that Obama wiretapped Donald Trump, Republicans are going to have a hard time cleaning up Trump’s mess.

The President is supposed to be a leader, not someone who tells lies on Twitter that the rest of the country has to investigate and clear up.

For this congressman to have the courage to say that Trump is literally too stupid to be the President should be enough to wake up the rest of the Republicans that this man is not to be trusted.
