President Donald Trump’s late night hissy fit over the “Mourning in America” ad from GOP group The Lincoln Project drew a devastating response from one of the Republicans Trump personally targeted.
The ad brutally told the truth about Trump and warned that there may not be an America left to save if he is re-elected.
During an appearance on MSNBC, former Republican strategist Steve Schmidt spoke about Trump’s tantrum and blasted him for hurting the country.

“He started rage tweeting at about 1:00 in the morning, when he saw it after it ran,” Schmidt began. “It had been viewed more than 16 million times, it’s raised over $1 million. What the ad points out is that the president, who ran saying, ‘I alone can fix it,’ and, ‘I’ll make America great again,’ has presided over an era unlike any other in American history. He’s brought tragedy to the country. This is a moment of profound American weakness.”
“He has handled this with a level of ineptitude and incompetence that is simply staggering,” Schmidt continued. “The cost is immense human suffering in the country. We have 70,000 dead Americans, that number will cruise through 100,000. We have a shattered economy. We’ll see unemployment rates of 30 percent.”
Such an unemployment rate would be something never experienced before — the only thing close to being comparable would be the Great Depression. And the reason why the United States will see deaths soar past 100,000 and beyond is that Trump is re-opening the country too early. It’s just another reckless decision in a long line of reckless decisions that got us into this crisis.
“None of this had to happen,” Schmidt pointed out. “He was not on his game, he left the country unprotected. He’s been lying to the country, he has been talking about his television ratings. His eye is not on the ball. The reality is, we have the worst president in American history at the moment of one of the greatest crises in the country’s history.”
Schmidt finished Trump off by slamming his stunning lack of empathy for the millions of Americans suffering at this time, and referred to Trump as a “disaster for the ages.”
“He has an incapacity for empathy. He has no instinct for leadership. He is a mess,” Schmidt concluded. “He is an unsteady hand at a moment in crisis. All over this country, there is death that did not have to be. He told the American people that he had been assured by the Chinese, no problem — 15 Americans have this, soon it will be gone. This is a disaster for the ages.”
