As we told you last night, Rep. Justin Amash has launched an exploratory committee to seek the Libertarian Partyâ€™s nomination to run for president.
Kellyanne Conwayâ€™s husband, George, who is a very vocal member of the anti-Trump Resistance, thinks an Amash candidacy might only help the president get re-elected:
I admired how @justinamash stood up for the rule of law in Trumpâ€™s impeachment. And needless to say, my views align more closely with Amashâ€™s than Bidenâ€™s.
But the only real effect Amash could have in this campaign is to enhance Trumpâ€™s chances.
This is a terrible idea. https://t.co/lAimU4KEoB

And with that, one of Conwayâ€™s tweets from just under one year ago was remembered:
How about now?

Letâ€™s just say that Conway appears to have had a change of heart since last May:
This would be a supreme act of patriotism by Rep. Amash. https://t.co/QevYInuUGA

That was a fairly quick about-face.
You see? It's only a supreme act of patriotism is it hurts the candidate I want to hurt. Patriotism is supremely partisan that way. https://t.co/2dm7MBbsQ7
