According to the New York Post, Lincoln Project co-founder Steve Schmidt met with Trump in 2016 and tried to join his campaign.

Sounds like he was turned down … which would explain a LOT.

Brit Hume had this to say:

From the New York Post:

Well, this is a little awkward.

Steve Schmidt, one of the co-founders of anti-Trump political action group the Lincoln Project, met with then-candidate Donald Trump and tried to join his campaign during a 2016 Manhattan meeting, sources with knowledge of the conversation told The Post.

But the Republican operative — best known for his work on John McCain’s failed presidential bid before becoming one of the faces of the “Never Trump” movement — failed to get the gig because Trump thought he was a “total idiot,” one of the sources said.

HA HA HA HA HA

So the Lincoln Project is sour grapes.

Gosh, we’re shocked.

Eh. Not really.

But they do make us laugh and the fact that Schmidt allegedly wanted to work for Trump casts a shadow everything they’re doing supposedly for conservatism.

But we thought they were super concerned about conserving conservatism.

Hrm.
