It’s only fitting that bitter ender Never Trump turncoats have decided to support the leftist presidential candidate who will never be the Democrat nominee, namely Joe Biden. The Washington Examiner reports, “Republicans opposed to President Trump are quietly preparing to support Democratic front-runner Joe Biden, backing that could materialize in the primary as he attempts to fend off a surging Elizabeth Warren.”
We’re sure that will work at least as well as their 2016 support for Independent Anti-Trump candidate Evan McMullin, whose vote total in that presidential election didn’t even amount to a rounding error for Trump.
And speaking of failed, marginal, embarrassing presidential candidate McMullin, he pops up this year as one of the Biden backers.
Biden was selected from that cast of proto-communists because, “[He] is the most likely Democrat to receive measurable support from the Never Trump crowd, most of whom quickly concluded that the president does not face a realistic threat from the three Republicans challenging him in the GOP primary in 2020.”
No realistic threat from primary challengers? Could that be because President Trump is the overwhelming choice of real Republicans? Currently a recent Gallup poll showed 95 percent of Republicans approve of Trump’s job performance. And why not?
Neither Bush could defund Planned Parenthood, but Trump did. Neither Bush could move our embassy to Jerusalem, but Trump did. Neither Bush ever promised to stop illegal immigration, while the jury’s still out on Trump. And neither Bush ever did anything about China’s rapacious trade policies, while Trump has made an uneven start.
Maybe that’s why Trump’s primary challengers appear to be as big a joke as the Never Trumpers.
And the idea of Biden as a moderate also doesn’t pass the laugh test. He was more liberal on same-pronoun marriage than Obama was. As his sputtering, gaffetastic presidential campaign stumbles along, Biden is busily abandoning or apologizing for any past vote, statement, or association that would appear the least bit moderate to the Wokestapo that runs the left.
Biden as president may fulfill some twisted revenge fantasy on the part of Never Trumpers, but he will be a disaster for real conservatives. An honorable Republican who could not support President Trump would simply sit the presidential election out in 2020.
The term for ostensible conservatives who actively work to elect a leftist simply because their politics are dominated by pettiness is very simple. They aren’t Republicans. Their actions prove them to be Democrats.
