In any event, more accurately the GOP left Boot behind when President Trump transformed it.

It left Boot just like it left the Washington Post’s George Will, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, and MSNBC’s Steve Schmidt.

Each of them has also attempted to make a show out of now promoting Democrats, despite having previously backed Republicans for decades.

But they didn’t quit the GOP. The GOP’s voters fired them for contributing nothing valuable to the party since at least 2010. (Though Joe Scarborough’s contribution to the national dialogue with his endless self-regard for his six years as a little-known congressman in the 1990s will not soon be forgotten.)
