Never Trumpers Play the Moral Authority Card on Anti-Lockdown Conservatives, Get the Responses They Deserve

As my RedState colleague Brad Slager reported earlier, Never Trumpers are now more politically homeless than they ever were. One reason is because, believe it or not, there actually is only so much grifting you can do in Washington, D.C. before the well runs dry and people move on.

Not only did they spend tens of millions in mostly losing efforts in House and Senate races across the country last month, but – barring some sort of miracle when Congress convenes on Jan. 6th to certify the presidential election – they stand to lose their number one money generator: President Trump.

So with all of that in mind, it’s kinda sorta understandable to see that they are continuing to display their perpetually sour faces and discontent in unhealthy ways on the Twitter machine. Case in point: Bulwark editor-in-chief Charlie Sykes, who decided he thought that it’d be a good idea last night to revisit a May 2020 tweet from conservative writer Bethany Mandel and do a little COVID shaming because why not?

His equally sour-faced Never Trump ally Jennifer Rubin trotted out her tattered moral authority card as well:

As did fellow Never Trumper Tom Nichols, who as I understand it is supposedly an expert on a number of things – or so you’d believe if you’d simply shut up and listen to him tell you so:

Mandel blasted back, noting that she was actually right about a lot of things she talked about in the thread Skyes and others were using to try to shame her over:

And she wasn’t the only one:

I guess Jen, Charlie, and the rest of the Never Trump grifters didn’t get the whole “unity and healing” memo.

In all seriousness, a Never Trumper trying to play the self-righteous, holier than thou card on anyone is a lot like Bill Clinton giving a lecture on the importance of staying faithful to your wife. The message doesn’t work, because the messenger has been thoroughly and irrevocably corrupted.

Not only that but Never Trumper sellouts have also cast their lot in with the pro-choicers in the Democratic party who by way of their support for abortion on demand for any reason at any point during pregnancy have helped enable the deaths of tens of millions of unborn children over the last several decades.

So no, we don’t need any lectures about morality and the sanctity of human life from this crowd. Not now, not ever.
