The anti-Trump Republicans behind The Lincoln Project used President Donald Trump’s own words against him in a new video released this week. Following a Monday speech that he delivered on an airport tarmac in Minnesota to a crowd of his supporters, the organization released a 90-second montage of some of the most ridiculous lines from his remarks, which, when taken together, yet again reveal the president as bumbling, incompetent, and having no business being anywhere near the White House.
In one of the most particularly unhinged lines that are included in the video, Trump said:
‘That’s God testing me. He said, you know, you did it once. And I said did I do a great job, God? I’m the only one that can do it! He said, that you shouldn’t say; now we’re going to have you do it again.’
Talk about a messiah complex. Donald Trump is not some kind of messiah. He is a self-obsessed loon who is fundamentally not a seriously competent person and should be kicked out of the White House. Check out the new Lincoln Project video below:

Trump’s “gaffes” have extended throughout his presidency. There are many high-profile examples, ranging from the time that he told a crowd that he “never understood wind” to the more recent occasion when, at a White House press conference, he suggested the influenza pandemic of 1918 (which he incorrectly identified as in 1917) may have ended World War II, which ended in the 1940s. Shouldn’t the president of the United States have an at least general idea of when World War II was? None of those examples of the president’s nonsense even cover the time he suggested exploring the injection of household cleaners as a potential Coronavirus treatment. After backlash, he claimed that he was joking. He didn’t seem to be at the time.
There is, of course, a lot more at stake than the dignity of the office of the presidency heading into November. Trump’s malfeasance has, among other things, exacerbated the Coronavirus crisis, which has claimed the lives of over 170,000 Americans and counting. The Lincoln Project is part of a vocal group of Republicans who have broken with Trump and backed Biden. Ohio’s former Republican Governor John Kasich is among the anti-Trump Republicans, and he spoke at this week’s Democratic National Convention.
