Patti Davis: My dad would be appalled by current Republican candidates

Patti Davis, the daughter of former President Ronald Reagan, said her father would be “appalled” by today’s Republican presidential candidates, and that today’s Republican party would not accept her father.

In a recent interview with the Huffington Post’s Michelangelo Signorile on SiriusXM Progress, Reagan’s daughter put the current overabundance of potential Republican presidential candidates on proper blast for continuing to invoke her father’s name despite the fact that he would probably have nothing to do with those imbeciles.

“It may be this week [Ted Cruz is] doing it more than the others,” Patti Davis says, “but they all kind of do it. But yet, they are so not like him. My father would be so appalled at what’s going on. He would be so appalled at these candidates. I don’t think he would be a Republican.” Davis had a similar theory regarding the current gun control debate that continues to rage across the nation, revealing that her father likely wouldn’t even be able to fathom the GOP’s rhetoric. “I don’t think he’d ever be able to conceive what’s going on now,” Davis says, “the amount of gun violence or weaponry.”

Of course, Republicans hate (loudly, publicly, and without restraint) a lot of other things too. Following the Supreme Court’s historic ruling on marriage equality earlier this year, many Republicans decided to wallow in the lowest-common-denominator publicity of Kim Davis and similar doofuses instead of acting like progressive human beings. According to Davis, Nancy Reagan isn’t interested in joining that nonsense.

“She was very happy about that decision,” Davis reveals. “I don’t talk to her too much about politics currently. She’s 94 and I think she has the right to live out the rest of life with a little bit of peace, which cannot be found in the current political scene. But you know, I don’t think she’s too happy about anybody on the current roster right now. I mean, there’s nobody presidential. Not in that group anyway.”
