Steve Schmidt Shreds Trump Evangelicals
Updated: Oct 23, 2020
Editor's Note: Steve Schmidt is one of the founding members of the Lincoln Project. He is a communications and public affairs strategist who has worked on several Republican campaigns, including John McCain's 2008 bid for the White House, and he is now a regular political contributor to MSNBC.
On Thursday, Schmidt continued a series of relentless tweetstorms this week attacking President Donald Trump. In his latest edition, he went after the evangelical preachers who have supported him, among others, over a series of 8 tweets. MaxNewsToday has assembled these tweets and reprinted them as one easy-to-read op-ed for our ongoing segment, Schmidt Storm. It has been edited for clarity. We are confronting extremism this week. Below are a toxic mix of liars, hypocrites and flim-flam artists. They pervert Christianity and decency. Pastor Paula works in the White. House. What a disgrace.
Jerry Falwell Jr., evangelicals love Trump. He is their Golden Calf and meal ticket to political power and profit. This will be playing where it needs to. We know precisely the voters these wack-jobs freak out the most. It’s going down Donald, and all the “prayers” in the world from these charlatans won’t save you.
Oh, did you know you can smell panic? I can smell yours oozing through the TV. There will be no deal-flow. Who do you owe almost $500 million to? No one will want to do business with you. You are American history’s greatest loser and failure, Donald. What a freak show you have assembled. We will be talking about it a lot. This is your team. God, they are almost as embarrassing as Kimberly Guilfoyle, who, we hear, can’t get donors to call her back. How about Brad Parscale? Did you see him crying and whining in the back of the cop car? I wouldn’t bet the Tower that he isn’t going to cooperate with the law, if you know what I mean. By the way, that’s the guy who allegedly stole more than $40 million from you? LOL.
You really aren’t that smart. You will spend the rest of your life in disgrace. Every kid in America will know Trump equals LOSER, forever. What a failure you are. What a disaster you have caused. You looked like a fool hawking REGENERON.
The GOP Senate knows they are done. It’s all over. The con is over. You are exposed. From the moment you lose, you will never have a peaceful or happy day again. For the first time in your life, you will learn the meaning of consequences and accountability. You will never be forgiven by the American people. You will never be forgiven for betraying the American military.
One day, you will face God’s judgment, and none of the frauds in this ad will be there to vouch for you. Trust me.
Breathe easy, Donald.
We are voting.
