In a stinging new weekend ad, the anti-Trump conservative group known as The Lincoln Project insists that “everyone knows” that time’s up for Trump’s time in the White House. The Trump administration has consistently and basically endlessly struggled to break through a consistent national polling lead held by Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, who also leads in important swing states around the country, including states that Trump won in 2016 and were crucial to his victory. As of Saturday afternoon, FiveThirtyEight gives Biden a 77 percent chance of winning the presidency.
The new Lincoln Project video takes an intentionally mocking tone towards the president. He’s long ago proven that he is obsessed with his public image, after all.
In the ad, a narrator says:
‘We warned you Donald, but you didn’t listen, and now you’re losing — not just the election, you’re losing everything. Kayleigh and Meadows know you can’t handle real interviews, and they laugh that you don’t get it. They know it’s over — everyone does. Smaller crowds, lower polls, embarrassing ratings. Mitch McConnell already told the Senators it’s time to dump you. Republicans are abandoning ship. You think these people care what happens to you? You think the leaks are done? Everything you’ve screwed up is going to come out. Every secret is going to be told. They’ve got a party to salvage and careers to rescue. We told you they were whispering about you. Well, they don’t have to whisper anymore, because everyone knows — everyone, except you.’

Trump consistently refuses to acknowledge his campaign’s struggles, as if he thinks that he can just wish them out of existence. He characterizes polls that show him losing as “fake,” and he refuses to even commit to accepting the election results or ensuring a peaceful transfer of power if he loses. He suggests that he will wait and see what happens before deciding whether or not he will accept the election results, but that’s not how it works! Trump isn’t the arbiter of democracy.
