I remember Josh Hammer.
During the 2016 election, I used to read Erick Erickson’s website The Resurgent and Josh Hammer was one of the biggest and loudest Jewish Never Trumpers there. He ended up endorsing, campaigning and voting for Evan McMullin.
“An influential voice at Ben Shapiro’s Daily Wire blog made a bigoted anti-European remark on his social media account on Tuesday night. …
Editor-at-large Josh Hammer said in a since-deleted Twitter post: “Jew-Hatred is Inherent in the European DNA.”
“Metaphorically speaking, the moment is now for Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio to unleash their inner William Tecumseh Shermans on Donald Trump. We are rapidly approaching the point of no return in the insane phenomenon that is the bloviating non-conservative narcissist Trump’s hostile takeover of the Republican Party apparatus. The undermining of said structural apparatus would be simply devastating for the conservative movement, and quite possibly usher in the end of the two-party system as we know it.”
It looks like Josh Hammer has been deleting some of his embarrassing old tweets and articles. He was a huge cheerleader for Evan McMullin and the strategy of running a spoiler candidate who ended up costing Trump a victory in Minnesota.
Since the 2016 election, it is people like Josh Hammer who have prospered and flourished under the Trump administration. Donald Trump sold out to the donor class and it was people like Hammer who staffed his administration and who obstructed his agenda in Congress. The people who supported Trump from beginning were marginalized the day after the election.
Note: I won’t be lifting a finger to reelect Donald Trump in 2020.
