Donald Trump and suspected mostly unemployed “moonface” George Conway won’t be exchanging Christmas cards this year after a Never Trump political action committee of which Conway is a member dropped a 60-second, doom-and-gloom “Mourning in America” ad blasting the president for his coronavirus response.
The Trump campaign responded to The Lincoln Project ad, whose main goal is to defeat Trump and “Trumpism” at the ballot box in November 2020, with a blistering email calling the group a bunch of scam artists.
About the portly George Conway, key Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway’s husband, the mailer suggested that he was riding his wife’s coattails. “You’d think George Conway would get off the couch more often, given that he’s largely unemployed and his membership in Washington’s elite will expire the second President Trump leaves office.”
The Trump campaign communication also mocked other profane Lincoln Project members such as CNN talking head Rick Wilson who is supposedly a Republican strategist as well as MSNBC’s Steve Schmidt, who along with TV colleague Nicolle Wallace, ran the late. Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign into the ground.
“Steve Schmidt makes Nicolle Wallace look smart. He declared Russian collusion would ‘be the greatest scandal in the history of the U.S. There will be astounding levels of information about the depth of the conspiracy.’ Then the Mueller Report fizzled, and he was left to manufacture new fake controversies easily debunked by anybody with half a brain.”
Earlier this week, Trump took to Twitter to summarize his accomplishments in office while blasting the organization as a bunch of RINOs with a history of losing that is a disgrace to the member of “Honest Abe,’ the nation’s beloved 16th president.
Unfortunately, rather than ignoring it, Trump’s condemnation gave the footage viral life. The ad, which is a reverse callback to President Ronald’s “Morning in America” reelection campaign slogan, has received about 1.8 million hits on YouTube so far.
“I don’t know what Kellyanne did to her deranged loser of a husband, but it must have been really bad,” he joked.
….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!

President Trump also alleged that PAC members were enriching themselves from fundraising, something that is not necessarily unheard of in the world of politics generally.
Apart from Trump’s outsized personality, it’s difficult to understand the Never Trumpers’ beef. A former Democrat and independent, Trump has actually implemented a wide-ranging conservative agenda — as summarized in his tweetstorm — that these so-called principled Republicans supposedly championed throughout their careers. Trump also taught the GOP how to fight back against the Democrat-media complex and the globalist wing of the Republican Party. He also mobilized both the federal government and the private sector in an unprecedented way to combat COVID-19.
Although many couples put political differences aside, and their private lives are nobody’s business, it seems like things have to be somewhat awkward in the Conway household.
