Trump attacks George Conway, 'RINO' strategists, publicizes their brutal 'Mourning in America' ad

President Trump called attention to the latest attack ad from a #NeverTrump Republican group in a series of tweets he posted very early Tuesday morning. "I guess we know what keeps the president of the United States up at night," responded George Conway, one of the Lincoln Project's founders and husband to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway. "It isn’t the Americans who are dying once every 45 seconds of COVID-19."

"A group of RINO Republicans who failed badly 12 years ago, then again 8 years ago, and then got BADLY beaten by me, a political first timer, 4 years ago, have copied (no imagination) the concept of an ad from Ronald Reagan, 'Morning in America,' doing everything possible to get even for all of their many failures," Trump tweeted. The ad, released Monday, is called "Mourning in America."

"Their so-called Lincoln Project is a disgrace to Honest Abe," Trump tweeted. "I don’t know what Kellyanne did to her deranged loser of a husband, Moonface, but it must have been really bad." He also attacked GOP strategists John Weaver, Rick Wilson, Even McMullen, Steve Schmidt, Reed Gavin, and Jennifer Horn. "They’re all LOSERS, but Abe Lincoln, Republican, is all smiles!" Trump tweeted.
