An anti-Trump Republican group was torched on social media after stepping on a rake in an attempt to attack President Donald Trump.

The Lincoln Project objected to the President of the United States, and the nation’s commander-in-chief, for saluting during his July 4th celebration from Mt. Rushmore.

The jab at the president was one of many by the political action committee formed by Republicans – and some former Republicans – for the express purpose of preventing Trump’s reelection. The group has launched several ads aimed at attacking the president in the 2020 race, including one with Russian language and English subtitles in a mock “endorsement” from Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Former Republican political strategist Rick Wilson and GOP campaign strategist Steve Schmidt, who co-founded The Lincoln Project along with George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, spewed a barrage of insults at the president and his supporters.

The Lincoln Project’s Twitter account was also on a roll.

But then it all came to a screeching halt when the prize-winning tweet about saluting came up. The gleeful rush to slam the president backfired in a big way as Twitter users quickly called out their ignorance.

Of course, a saluting president was never a problem before Trump.

And the sound of crickets was deafening on images of presidential contender Joe Biden, a Democrat.
