The people at the Lincoln Project, rightfully not trusting Donald Trump or any person supporting him in his apparent coup attempts two weeks after Joe Biden was called the winner of the 2020 Presidential Election, have released a new ad called “Michigan.”
Noting that Donald Trump won Michigan by less than 11,000 votes in 2016 and Joe Biden emerged victorious there by about 153,000 ballots in 2020, the narrator reveals that:
“Donald Trump is attempting to steal the election by demanding that Michigan Presidential Electors vote for him.”
The narrator immediately points out that Trump’s attempt to circumvent the will of the people in Michigan (where Biden won by a landslide) is “illegal and UnAmerican.”
Furthermore, the ad continues by asserting that Trump’s inviting of the Michigan State House and Senate Republican leaders to accomplish this goal is wrong and treasonous.
The narrator concludes:
“Tens of thousands of Michiganders have died defending the Democracy Donald Trump now tries to overthrow. Nothing like this has happened in American History. The Republican Party of Michigan must decide if it is loyal to America and our Constitution, or to Donald Trump. All America is watching. The world is watching. What will (Michigan) Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and House Speaker Lee Chatfield do? Will they go down in history as good citizens who did their duty or traitors who attempted a failed coup? Donald Trump or America? Voters chose America. Now Michigan Republicans must do the same.”
Republican leadership, in Michigan and Washington DC, has to, for the first time in 30 years, put country over party.
Joe Biden is the President-Elect.
He is leading in the Popular Vote by about six million votes and rising.
He is primed to win the Electoral College by what 2016 and 2020 Popular Vote Loser Donald Trump won by four years ago.
There is no evidence of widespread fraud.
All but one of Trump’s post-election lawsuits have been thrown out.
It is time to tell Trump to retire to Florida and face the potential consequences of his unethical and possibly criminal actions. The same goes for his corrupt enablers as well.
It is time to unite, heal, defeat COVID 19, and move America forward again.
