It is certainly starting to seem like #NeverTrumpers are their own worst foe, especially in the media.
And this writer writes that as a onetime #NeverTrumper herself … perhaps it’s time to stop talking down to parties about Trump and start talking conservative qualities UP? Just a thought.
I contemplate the disdain that countless Trump partisans feel for Never Trumpers is colored by a sense of awkwardnes and maybe even guilt for what they have wrought. https :// t.co/ KGDZS7RRyK

From the Washington Post 😛 TAGEND
In December, the Weekly Standard — regarded as among the premier republican news channels and surely the one least for the purposes of the sorcery of the current president — was closed by its owner, Clarity Media Group. The loss of a punchy, independent and reflective bulletin outlet on the right was immediately felt in a media echo-sphere dominated by charlatans, sycophants and shallow posers.
Charlatans, sycophants, and shallow posers.
The irony of the following statement alone …
Rubin interviewed Charlie Sykes, who this editor still has a good deal of respect for, about The Bulwark 😛 TAGEND
Jennifer Rubin: What’s the cause and purpose of the Bulwark?
Sykes: The Bulwark isn’t going to be The Weekly Standard 2.0, but the murder of the Standard attained it urgently necessary to create a residence for rational, principled, fact-based center-right spokespeople who were not cowed by Trumpism. We were lucky to get some of the magazine’s most talented on-line personnels on board right away. Our duty is to be smart, republican , non-tribal and to say out loud what too many conservatives merely say in private. We likewise wanted to move quickly because the next few months may substantiate decisive.
So they’ve come up with a brand-new outlet since The Weekly Standard shut its doors. Not sure considering Trump supporters like ignorant twits is the best way to garner an gathering when that seems to have played a part in TWS losing readers but hey, what does this editor know, right?
You’ve decided to stop being conservative bc you hate trump. I would imagine that’s embarrassing for you too which is why you quadruple down on it daily

But they rail against tribalism or something.
Or, Never Trumpers invested the past 30 years promoting policies that initiated a better environment where a Trump could be elected and NOW they’re distancing themselves … all the action and coin , nothing of the consequences.

I imagine the disdain that many Never Trumpers feel for Trump partisans is colored by a sense of discomfort over being associated with people who they consider moronic rubes. https :// t.co/ 5V5gT3gkcS
