This week, the anti-Trump conservative group "The Lincoln Project" endorsed Democrat Joe Biden for president.
Co-founded by George Conway, the outspoken husband of Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, and Rick Wilson, the author of "Everything Trump Touches Dies," the group also launched this ad blaming President Trump directly for the outbreak of the novel coronavirus in the U.S.
"Coronavirus has now killed three times more Americans than 9/11," the ad says. "So what’s Donald Trump been up to? Blaming the impeachment hearings for distracting him from preparing for the pandemic."
"Where was Trump? He wasn’t distracted. He had plenty to do. Like campaign rallies and golfing. In February, the virus spread to Europe. While Italy was shutting down and quarantines were being announced all over the world, Trump played more golf and packed thousands of people together. Sounds safe."
"Trump just didn’t care. He still doesn’t. He was never distracted. And Americans have been paying attention."
We are proud to endorse @JoeBiden for President.— The Lincoln Project (@ProjectLincoln) April 8, 2020
As America contends with unprecedented loss, we need a leader who can steady the ship, heal our common wounds, and lead us into our next national chapter. Joe Biden has the humanity, empathy and steadiness we need in a leader.
