Lincoln Project has its biggest day of fundraising after president attacks 'Never Trump' group

Source: CNBC

The Lincoln Project, which is run by Republican operatives who oppose President Donald Trump, raised $1 million after the president ripped the group on Twitter this week Ė marking it the super PACís biggest day of fundraising yet.

Reed Galen, a member of the Lincoln Projectís advisory committee, told CNBC that the total came after the presidentís Tuesday morning Twitter tirade in reaction to an ad titled ďMourning in America,Ē which unloads on Trumpís response to the coronavirus pandemic. It recently aired on Fox News, which Trump often watches and praises. Galen said it was the Lincoln Projectís best single-day fundraising haul.

<...>

The Lincoln Projectís big fundraising day in the wake of Trumpís tweets could be the financial boost it needs to keep pumping out more anti-Trump ads. It finished the first quarter raising $1.9 million and has just more than $1.2 million on hand. Their top donors include Walmart heir Christy Walton and Silicon Valley executive Ron Conway, records show.

1. I went to the website but did not see the second ad. I hope that they post it soon.

Mourning in America has been on MSNBC several times when I have been watching, in addition to the times that hosts have played it as part of their shows.

3. Go to YouTube.com and type in "Lincoln Project" in youtube's search box.

There are 6 other 1-minute ads they've done prior to "Mourning in America", plus some longer content.

2. Great ad, but the dummies in the deplorables bloc

Will hear it as "Morning"....I was waiting for them to make the contrast between the homonyms "mourning" and "morning", but didn't see it.

6. Most of the "dummies in the deplorables bloc" probably don't know who Reagan was.

I'll bet they don't even remember the original "Morning in America" ad, and couldn't spell "mourning" if their lives depended on it. It's a great political ad, but such subtleties are lost on these idiots.

Unless we're from Lake Wobegon where everyone is above average.

16. Whether they get the pun or not, they must have been confused to see it on Fux.

Anyhow, the ad was targeted at an audience of one. It hit the mark.

14. Give them time. They're "slow."

These ads don't just point out that the Titanic is sinking. They're establishing that its captain has been, and still is, incompetent and derelict. As more and more redhats suffer, and some die, Donny will continue to point in every direction but this campaign will remind them of his utter failure. Dictators and cult leaders throughout history maintained to the bitter end some small fraction of their once-great loyal armies, but their ends were still bitter.

The rest is up to them to torpedo COVID-45. Good hunting, Lincoln Project.

9. What a great use for the IRS's Covid Payment

I've already donated to the local candidate opposing the RepubliCON so-called Representative elected two years ago, Lt. Col. Amy McGrath (who has a chance to unseat Moscow Mitch), and -- of course -- Joe Biden.
Sadly, though, too many of us need every penny of that payment just to survive. A drop in the bucket for some of them.

31. Seriously ...

Covid-19 is nothing compared to Covidiot-45.

Not to diminish what has happened to families and friends that
lost a loved one due to Covid-19, but Covidiot-45 is a greater danger.

I call the protesters Covidiots!

20. A lot of people follow Trumptweets just for that reason...

to log his fuckups and bullshit and spread it to the rest of the world, not just to Trumplodytes.

Somebody has to keep their eyes on what he is doing. Trump actually makes it easy, he brags about all the shit he fucks up on Twitter.

23. Can we have a Democratic group that makes ads like this?

We have the the people. We've seen posts here showing great ads for candidates around the country over the last few election cycles. Can someone with connections and resources organize that? Maybe the billionaires that ran for the presidential nomination? Or boost the profile and resources for any less-visible groups that already are?

Why is this messaging effectively being outsourced to some of the same Republicans who spent their careers creating a Republican base that would just love a guy like Trump?

donating big to this group?????????????

Maybe they all have info that the election is already rigged and they would just be throwing their money away.....

The RepubliCONS have been acting like they're not worried about an election as they continue with their corrupt crap every day........why is that? Because they know the fix is in, and don't want to waste the next six months pretending that they are concerned about the election.......??????????

the orange one and his friends are ripping off from us. If they were getting part of the pie you can bet they wouldn't be making ads like this. You wouldn't even hear of them.
