An executive at Forbes has issued a warning for others about hiring prominent Trump staffers — “fellow fabulists” — after the president leaves office:
Whoa. @Forbes chief content officer warns against hiring @kayleighmcenany or other prominent Trump flacks: “Hire any of Trump’s fellow fabulists above, and Forbes will assume that everything your company or firm talks about is a lie.” https://t.co/KeXF2gVXVV

And with that, the Lincoln Project will apparently also get in on the monitoring act, and then some:
At @ProjectLincoln we are constructing a database of Trump officials & staff that will detail their roles in the Trump administration & track where they are now. No personal info, only professional. But they will be held accountable & not allowed to pretend they were not involved https://t.co/DkpxpaWaWB

Call us crazy, but that doesn’t sound incredibly “conservative”:

And perhaps it’s not intended to end well.
Why limit to officials and staff? Surely there were other enablers who should be tracked. Professionally, of course… Also, as @heytammybruce suggested, what about some sort of public identifier, perhaps on clothing? https://t.co/AuSxmUEASh

I hear it would be even easier if you made them wear a patch of some sort so they can be recognized even when in public. So much easier to keep them in control & perpetually punished for the Wrong Think. #fascist https://t.co/mnCpSLfreS

Wasn’t Trump the one they said was a “wannabe fascist dictator” or something?
Sounds like a lot of bother. You could just get em to sew something on their shirts

Is this a display of the “character” these NeverTrumpers insisted Trump was deficient of? https://t.co/X2BoZSHoUD

Because this is totally normal and not something a collection of insane grifters would do. https://t.co/2E13wVq7oO

They are actively creating a permanent MAGA resistance movement that will sustain long after Trump, viewing him a martyr for their cause and they think they are delivering justice and accountability here.
They are literally the cause of what will be an even more extreme cult. https://t.co/G7cNPgLN5P

It’s almost as if “unity and healing” isn’t really the goal and never was.
