The Lincoln Project, a group of former Republican political strategists determined to reform the new GOP Trump party, has released some of the most powerful anti-Trump and anti-Republican ads of the 2020 election cycle. Now that the November 3 elections have ended, The Lincoln Project is taking on the entire Republican Party, pointing out where the party has failed Americans.

In their latest ad, The Lincoln Project goes after Republicans in power who are enabling President Trump’s attempts to delegitimize Joe Biden’s election win. Instead of standing up for the democratic process and countering Trump’s false claims of election fraud, several top Republican lawmakers have either supported his claims, riling up the most rabid of Trump’s supporters and furthering a false narrative that divides the country, or simply stayed silent, refusing to settle some of the unrest.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), for instance, has supported Trump’s claims of voter fraud and even donated $500,000 to the legal fight attempting to overturn the election results. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has responded only by saying that Trump has a legal right to a recount, which is true, but Trump has no basis for asking for a recount. Both McConnell and Graham know that Biden has won the presidency but refuse to acknowledge it publicly and are afraid of losing votes from Trump supporters. That has taken precedence for them over lowering the temperature in American politics and doing what’s right for the country.
