The Lincoln Project, a group of Republican strategists and “Never Trump” voters, have produced some of the most hard-hitting political attack ads in the 2020 election season. On Tuesday night at the first presidential debate of the season, Trump gave them plenty of material to use against him.

Repeatedly shouting interruptions over his debate opponents, spewing lies as fast as he could, shouting accusations of debunked conspiracies against Biden, nothing was off the table for Trump. Unfortunately for him, his performance was unlikely to sway voters who wanted to see a leader and not a professional wrestling match. Undecided voters weren’t able to get much from Trump on policies or plans; what they got was a whole lot of insults and a sulky, combative child behind a lectern who truly thought he was winning.
The president not only refused to denounce the white supremacist group, the Proud Boys, he told them to “stand by,” emboldening them to create a new logo for themselves. He ranted against both President Obama and Secretary Hillary Clinton, neither of whom are in politics at this point and neither of whom are running against Trump. He shouted, he said his opponent was “not smart,” he attacked Biden’s only living son and insisted he had never heard of the other, who served in the military and passed away from cancer five years ago. He attacked and came out scathed, but mostly he came out the loser, and The Lincoln Project is not going to let him forget it.
Twitter wasn’t letting Trump get away with it, either. Read some of their comments below:
