This anti-Trump ad was funded by Republicans



The group is called The Lincoln Project.

And let's make this clear.  After the Tulsa speech, Trump apologists and strategists said that Trump was "only kidding" in that speech.  Reporters asked Trump the next day whether that was true.
President Donald Trump on Tuesday insisted he was serious when he revealed that he had directed his administration to slow coronavirus testing in the United States, shattering the defenses of senior White House aides who argued Trump’s remarks were made in jest. 
I don’t kid. Let me just tell you. Let me make it clear,” Trump told reporters, when pressed on whether his comments at a campaign event Saturday in Tulsa, Okla., were intended as a joke.

  1. I would like to remind everyone that, on multiple occasions, Trump has claimed that he wants 'eight more years' and 'twelve more years' in office. He has, in the past, claimed that this was a joke, an attempt to 'troll the libs'. Well, now he's said it himself; he doesn't kid. Pulling funding from 13 coronavirus testing sites is proof of that. He is openly flouting the Constitution and the rule of law in this country. Just like some of us told you he would.

    1. Just to be clear, those 13 sites are the last of 48 such sites that were created in March by HHS and FEMA. It was announced in early April that all of the sites would be phased out by May 31st, though funding would be available to states if they wished to keep those locations open. 13 sites were given an additional 30 days, until June 30. The extensions were announced in mid-April. Funding, via the CARE Act, remains available to states to support testing sites.

      I'll be as happy as anyone when Mr. Trump goes back to running hotels and resorts (hopefully on January 20, 2021), but the long-planned closing of testing sites is hardly evidence that he plans to be in office for 12 more years, nor an example of "flouting the Constitution and the rule of law in this country."

  2. Don't fall for the Lincoln Project, I signed up for their email (with a spare email account) list about 6 months ago and immediately started receiving neo-con propaganda email aside from their faked anger at their own party.
    The Lincoln Project said they'd vote against Trump and the only one who did was Romney.
    My opinion, they are like the SS leading Liberals and Unsupportive Conservatives to the showers.

    1. Interesting. I wonder if the ads they produce run on television, or are they just internet ads used as fundraisers?

    2. "The Lincoln Project has asked Republicans directly to “put country above party”

      Next thing you know, they will expect the same from Democrats. Bunch of damn radicals, spouting nonsense like that...
