Trump conservative critics launch PAC to fight reelection

NEW YORK (AP) — A small group of President Donald Trump’s fiercest conservative critics, including the husband of the president’s own chief adviser, is launching a super PAC designed to fight Trump’s reelection and punish congressional Republicans deemed his “enablers.”

The principals include former John McCain adviser Steve Schmidt, former Ohio Gov. John Kasich adviser John Weaver, former New Hampshire GOP chair Jennifer Horn, veteran Republican operative Rick Wilson and George Conway, a conservative attorney and husband of Trump’s chief counselor Kellyanne Conway.

Interesting Christmas at the Conway house this year.

I picture this having as much support as the guy on the Adam Sandler movies that yells “You can do it”.

Won’t make a dent in the 94.998% support Donald claims to enjoy from Republicans.

Well anyone who doesn’t support Donald Trump isn’t a Republican, obviously. :roll_eyes:

None of them are conservatives. They have been never Trumpers since day one. You can tell a conservative by who they support. Not who they oppose. Who are they supporting? Anyone who would support an avowed socialist over Trump is certainly no conservative.

Oh right. You aren’t a Conservative if you aren’t a member of the club. Doesn’t matter what your principles are. Republicans have stopped pretending to have any since they put Trump up as their banner boy. Not that they really had any before, but hey at least they were pretending to.

Well this isn’t going anywhere and will stand only to put money in their pockets.

So…this is funny…gaslighting

From the article:

“Yet recent elections suggest that Trump’s party is losing ground with educated voters and women, particularly in America’s suburbs, which have traditionally leaned Republican. This new group hopes to push those voters further toward the Democrats.”

No, conservatives might misguidedly try to push for a third party of even an anti Trump segment of Republicans. They would never push voters towards Democrats. These might be people who falsely claim to be conservative Republicans…we’ve seen that around here. They are not conservative Republicans.

If anything some of those people will stay home, they won’t be switching to vote democratic if they are indeed conservatives.

Unless dem’s put up a hell of a lot of money for someone to do so there won’t be any notable conservatives running 3rd party either.

I’d say there’s a much better chance of prominent democrat doing so.

Yeah…the establishment would love to get their government back from “we the people” who voted for Trump. It’s happening all over the world. The people are taking back their government and the corrupt establishment does not like it…one bit.

These must have been on the take and afraid the president will find out.

I don’t know that i would call those people conservatives especially Kasich and the McCain aide.

Well said. Very well said indeed! :+1:

Trump isn’t a conservative either. He is an authoritarian populist.

And an opportunist. He doesn’t believe most of the nonsense he spews.

I remember conservatives raising the alarm of deficits and bailouts. These topics are not talked about anymore.

Kasich played a good conservative until he saw the medicaid dollars offered with Obamacare. The bloom has been off that rose since.
