During CNN‘s coverage of Former First Lady Nancy Reagan’s passing, Wolf Blitzer spoke with legendary broadcaster Larry King, a close friend of Mrs. Reagan.

While remembering his dear friend and the many correspondences between himself and the former first lady, King made a remark near the end of the interview that the first lady had been very dissatisfied with the state of the Republican party. King said that though he would miss her dearly, he was glad that she would not be around to see the conclusion of this election year.

“I’ll miss her. I love socializing with her, I love gossiping with her, I love talking with her. If there’s one thing glad about this. She isn’t around to see the end of this political year. Because she was very upset by it.”

As much as modern day Republicans worship Ronald Reagan and the era he existed in, his own beloved wife couldn’t bear to look at the disgusting mess that is the modern Republican party.
