Most people who pay attention to politics know that Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway, who has been a loyal supporter and defender of the president’s, has a husband who is exactly the opposite. Unfortunately for Trump’s base, and seemingly at the worst possible time, details are emerging of an anti-Trump resistance charge being lead by Conway’s husband, George. A super PAC dubbed “The Lincoln Project” has been reported by CNBC to have already raised over $1 Million.
BizPacReview reports that other key figures related to this movement in part, were co-writers of a New York Times Op-Ed titled “We Are Republicans, and We Want Trump Defeated”. Other names in addition to George Conway were Steve Schmidt, John Weaver, and Rick Wilson. The piece reads in part: “Over these next 11 months, our efforts will be dedicated to defeating President Trump and Trumpism at the ballot box and to elect those patriots who will hold the line”.
The CNBC report on the funds raised noted:
The new organization, known as the Lincoln Project, represents a formal step forward for the so-called Never Trump movement, which has been limited largely to social media commentary and cable news attacks through the first three years of Trump’s presidency. Organizers report fundraising commitments exceeding $1 million to begin, although they hope to raise and spend much more to fund a months-long advertising campaign in a handful of 2020 battleground states to persuade disaffected Republican voters to break from Trump’s GOP.
The mission, as outlined in a website that launched Tuesday coinciding with a New York Times opinion piece, is simple: “Defeat President Trump and Trumpism at the ballot box.”
Another excerpt from the fiercely anti-Trump Op-Ed read, “Patriotism and the survival of our nation in the face of the crimes, corruption and corrosive nature of Donald Trump are a higher calling than mere politics”. It’s hard to see exactly what these anti-Trump Republicans hate so much about President Trump, or why they don’t just switch parties, but for now, this movement of anti-Trump Republicans, which many thought had almost completely died out, remains on life support.
The movement of bitter Republicans against Trump followers others like it such as Mitt Romney’s perpetual criticisms of the president, and Anthony Scaramucci turning on Trump. More recently, former presidential candidate Carly Fiorina says she wants to see Trump impeached, although she bizarrely also says she might still vote for him in 2020. CNN reported on this bizarre stance from Fiorina in part:
And which makes the interview Fiorina gave to CNN’s Poppy Harlow all the more mystifying. Start here: Fiorina told Harlow that it was “vital” that Trump be impeached — although she stopped short of endorsing his removal by the Senate because we are now so close to the 2020 election. That’s a defensible position — that Trump behaved inappropriately and needs to be penalized by the House for it, but that the question of whether Trump should be removed from office is better left to voters next November. But what Fiorina then told Harlow is where she loses me. Asked whether she would vote for Trump in 2020 (as she did in 2016), Fiorina told Harlow: “It depends who the Democrats put up.”
As we mentioned earlier in the article, indeed Anthony Scaramucci is himself supporting and endorsing this cause as well, which is no huge surprise. It’s hard to take him seriously though, as Scaramucci always supported President Trump’s policies until he bitterly turned on him for personal reasons. Check out his tweet below claiming that “Our @GOP has been hijacked by the criminal rogue @realDonaldTrump and his enablers” in part.

It’s unsure if there are some Republicans wanting to run against Trump or run against the Trump America First agenda somewhere down the line here making a narrative to try and pave a way for their futures, or just pure bitterness. Stay tuned to find out more about what these ‘haters’ have planned.
