Awww, it sounds like our friends at The Bulwark have figured out they have no real friends on the Left. As readers know, this editor was ‘Never Trump’ for a good long while but once he won it was time to move on and support the country and the party. Interestingly enough, nearly every single Leftist who had ‘befriended’ this editor during the primary was suddenly very angry to learn that she was indeed still a conservative.
And as we all know, that wouldn’t do.
Breakups are so hard.

From The Bulwark:
Here’s where I wonder if maybe this entire relationship was doomed from the start.
Never Trumpers are politically homeless today, roaming around Reagan 35X like a pack of hobos. All because we weren’t willing to trade a political agenda we more-or-less agreed with for a morally, intellectually, and temperamentally unfit president.
Then we look up and see progressives saying, Trump is a unique threat to our constitutional order! Authoritarianism is real! The liberal compact is in danger! But we really want single payer, so . . . let’s roll the dice!
But my Democratic friends can’t really believe that, can they? They haven’t fallen for the normalization of Trump to the point where they now think he’s nothing worse than a trash TV version of Mitt Romney? Right? Bueller? Bueller?
The Left is worse than Trump?! GET OUT OF HERE.
Gosh, who’da thunk it?
Oh, that’s right, EVERYBODY.
I rarely ever click on these links. But this one is rather delicious. “The enemy of my enemy is my friend” is always a trap. Guys, they hate you & they used you to promote their narrative. Hope they paid you well! Congrats! https://t.co/2HWBgrJ9tI

Not sensing a whole lotta sympathy out there.
