Supposed conservative Steve Schmidt has enjoyed his time trashing President Trump on MSNBC so much over the last four years that he’s turned it into his own personal passion project. Joining up with the likes of George Conway and other NeverTrump losers, Schmidt formed The Lincoln Project, which last week released an ad titled “Mourning in America” that accused President Trump of failing the country in the wake of the coronavirus.
Trump himself apparently saw the ad shortly after its release, and he went on a tirade against the people associated with the Lincoln Project.
“A group of RINO Republicans who failed badly 12 years ago, then again 8 years ago, and then got BADLY beaten by me, a political first timer, 4 years ago, have copied (no imagination) the concept of an ad from Ronald Reagan, ‘Morning in America’, doing everything possible to…because they don’t know how to win, and their so-called Lincoln Project is a disgrace to Honest Abe,” Trump raged on Twitter.
“I don’t know what Kellyanne did to her deranged loser of a husband, Moonface, but it must have been really bad,” he continued. “John Weaver lost big for Kasich (to me). Crazed Rick Wilson lost for Evan ‘McMuffin’ McMullin (to me). Steve Schmidt & Reed Galvin lost for John McCain, Romney’s campaign manager (?) lost big to ‘O’, & Jennifer Horn got thrown out of the New Hampshire Republican Party. They’re all LOSERS, but Abe Lincoln, Republican, is all smiles!”
On MSNBC Wednesday, Schmidt argued that, somehow, Trump’s brutal takedown of the individuals involved with the Lincoln Project proved the ad’s point.
“With regard to the Lincoln Project ad that he was so upset about and spent most of the night apparently hate-tweeting and raged about it all day yesterday, what the ad makes the point of which is obviously true, is he’s the worst president in American history,” Schmidt said. “We never had a president fail so terribly in a crisis. We never had a president so derelict in his duty. We’ll have hundreds of thousands of dead Americans who didn’t have to be so by the time we get to the end of this tragedy to the end of this story. We’ll have a shattered American economy.
“He got hoodwinked by the Chinese,” Schmidt continued. “He lied to the American people. He’s inept and incompetent talking about the television ratings up there while the country is suffering, telling the American public to inject Lysol. It is a terrible performance for the ages. Lastly, the man who said I alone can fix it. I’m going to ‘Make America Great Again,’ the country is weaker, it’s poorer, and it’s suffering at a level that’s never before in its history. There’s never been a moment of American weakness, quite like the one that Donald Trump has wrought and brought on to the country.”
Imagine still trying to get the country to believe that Trump told Americans to inject Lysol. Imagine thinking that you can convince people that the coronavirus is somehow Trump’s fault. Imagine being a NeverTrump conservative in the year 2020.
