Comedian and actress Jane Curtin made a bold statement regarding her 2019 New Year’s resolution on CNN on Tuesday.

Speaking during CNN’s live New Year’s Eve broadcast, 71-year-old Curtin was one of many celebrities to share a New Year’s resolution.

Curtin, a former Saturday Night Live star, went straight for politics and said she wished for the GOP to perish.

“My New Year’s resolution is to make sure that the Republican Party dies,” Curtin quipped.

Twitter users quickly reacted to Curtin’s statement with mixed feelings: some praised the comedian, while others condemned the hateful rhetoric she used to ring in 2019.
