Questions for New Never Trumpers
Three simple, yes-or-no questions for democracy's new allies.
1. Welcome, Never Trump Republicans!
It’s been an exciting few days as many Republicans—who prior to 7pm on November 8, 2022, had been very pro-Donald Trump—suddenly had the scales ripped from their eyes after a dozen GOP candidates for the House lost by a few thousand votes.
I’m sure that if Yesli Vega had gotten a 6,000 vote swing in Virginia’s 7th District, all of these people would still be totally convinced of how dangerous Trump is.
Anyway, it’s great to have them aboard and I am absolutely not going to turn into some jackass obsessed with purity and virtue. I’m happy to have more people on #TeamDemocracy. Sincerely.
That said, I do have some questions for our new Never Trump allies, which I ask purely in the spirit of comity. Because you can’t really appreciate someone unless you understand them.
