Screen grab of Jennifer Rubin via MSNBC.
In the midst of the political craziness we’re subjected to on a daily basis, one person to turn to if you need a good laugh is Jennifer Rubin.
The Washington Post’s “conservative” columnist is prone to fits of gushing over liberal Democrats and their efforts to impeach President Trump. But as for any Republican against the left’s impeachment efforts? They’re on her naughty list.
For example, just last month, Rubin proudly declared she would “never vote for any R who does not support impeachment and removal. That means practically none of the current generation.”
Her mentions lit up with people laughing out loud, as if she really thought her tweet was supposed to be a surprise, and/or sound like a serious threat that Republicans should actually care about.
This weekend, her Twitter mentions lit up again after she promoted her most recent column in which she wrote about who she believes were “distinguished persons of the week” last week. They were Democrats, of course, including Schiff, Pelosi, Nadler, and “all the Democratic House candidates and the voters who turned out to elect them in 2018” because, ya know, if not for them the impeachment of Orange Man Bad would not be possible:
We are indebted to these people https://t.co/BPvtsX8iZd

Shortly thereafter, the calling-out commenced:
Do you ever have moments of sanity where you freak out realizing the type lunatics you've thrown in with?
Seriously? You are now lumped in with Maxine Waters, Schiff and Nadler. That is the neighborhood that Jenny "The Wa-Po Conservative" resides in.

AMerica is watching and getting angrier by the minute.

You 'save democracy' by pushing the hoax lie of "Russia collusion" and then try to undo the 2016 election over a phone call.
This partisan sham impeachment is as dishonest and fraudulent as the FBI's FISA application used to spy on Trump associates.

The Horowitz report caused considerable consternation to many honest never Trumpers everywhere. They now know what Trump has been up against, and they've realized the people you're praising would have gotten away with it had we elected any other president.
Get your head fixed.

Sadly, Rubin has been off the deep end for quite some time now. Watch this video clip from earlier this year where she actually said with a straight face that voters looking for more centrist candidates for office should look to Democrats:
.@JRubinBlogger, the day after Democrats voted down a bill that would save babies who survive abortions: "If you want a party that is moving closer to the center or whose voters say they want to be closer to center, that would be the Democrats." pic.twitter.com/7OyAETPeHF

It’s one thing to declare yourself a Never Trumper. But promoting Democrats to own the cons just because you don’t like Trump goes way beyond that and shows you probably weren’t that much of a “conservative Republican” to begin with.
