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.

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.
You guys are terrified of @ProjectLincoln and it shows.

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.
These ilk are all the same. Romney couldn’t get enough of Trump’s endorsement when he was running for Senate, then less than 14 months later is voting for removal in the impeachment trial. They are grifters

Almost like the Lincoln Project is in it for money?

But we thought they were super concerned about conserving conservatism.
