The Lincoln Project is out with its first anti-Trump ad. It’s entitled “The MAGA Church.” The group is made up of George Conway, Steve Schmidt, John Weaver, and Rick Wilson. All are Republicans who oppose Donald Trump and who “have worked for or supported numerous Republican campaigns and administrations.” Their mission statement says:
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. As Americans, we must stem the damage he and his followers are doing to the rule of law, the Constitution and the American character.
They say, “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.” A tagline on their website seems to go hand and hand with this first ad:
“The president and his enablers have replaced conservatism with an empty faith led by a bogus prophet.”
The two-minute video tries to convince evangelical Christians who support Trump that their loyalty to the president is hypocritical. Watch the ad above.
