There are times as a writer when it’s appropriate to use the phrase “has no shame” to describe a public figure or prominent organization. Most of the time it’s not meant literally but figuratively speaking, as even most of the people we assert have “no shame” do actually have some deep down, even though they don’t display it very often (which is what causes us to question it and them in the first place).
But there are times when the term should be used to mean exactly what it sounds like in the most literal of senses, as in “the Lincoln Project literally has no shame.”
We have known that ever since the announcement of the formation of the group of holier than thou Never Trumpers-turned full-blown Democrat apologists, although I’m hesitant to use the term “blown” in any piece related to the Lincoln Project for obvious reasons. They literally have no shame, which was reaffirmed just over a week ago via the despicable racist tiki-torch stunt they pulled in Charlottesville, Va. during an event for then-Republican gubernatorial nominee Glenn Youngkin, who fortunately got the last laugh.
Knowing what we know – and what they know that we know about the lengths they went to cover up the fact that one of their co-founders, John Weaver, was an (alleged) sexual predator who allegedly tried to groom underaged teenage boys in order to “initiate” them into the seedier, more repugnant side of the political world, imagine them thinking it was a good idea to not only mention Sen. Ted Cruz’s children during a segment on the Big Bird/Biden admin idiocy (and Cruz’s comments about them) but to actually promote the clip on their verified Twitter page.
Yep, that’s exactly what they did:
"If Ted Cruz had kids that age, the chances that they would be unvaccinated are exactly zero. Zero. So, this is another moment of just abject stupidity of a United States senator.” — @SteveSchmidtSES on @DeadlineWH pic.twitter.com/SLhW2hRzIK

Understandably, Cruz was most definitely not amused that his children were brought into a discussion by a co-founder of the discredited, sexual predator-defending group, and responded accordingly:

Memo to the Lincoln Project: Do yourselves a favor and don’t quit your day jobs. Or wait, maybe you should, you disgusting slimeballs. And maybe stop referencing children, like, ever when you talk policy? It’s unseemly, to put it mildly, even worse than the tiki-torch stunt, as vile as that was.
Also, memo to MSNBC: We see you still continuing to elevate the creepers at the LP, especially you, Nicolle Wallace. Have you no sense of decency, ma’am? Don’t bother answering that question, because we already know the answer to it.
“The Pedophiles at the Lincoln Project can’t stop talking about other peoples little kids, and MSNBC encourages this behavior. Wonder why?” one Twitter user asked in response.
