What?

Pres­i­dent Trump’s antag­o­nists inside the Repub­li­can Party now have a fall­back plan to scut­tle his re-​election: using the 2020 pri­mary fight as a blud­geon to inflict irrepara­ble polit­i­cal dam­age on him in the Novem­ber gen­eral election.

The “Never Trump” movement’s pre­ferred strat­egy is to recruit a for­mi­da­ble Repub­li­can who might block the president’s renom­i­na­tion, or at least mount an aggres­sive chal­lenge that presses him all the way to the con­ven­tion in Char­lotte set for late sum­mer next year. Efforts are under­way to woo Gov. Larry Hogan of Mary­land and other top Repub­li­cans uneasy with Trump.

Short of that, key rene­gade Repub­li­cans are prepar­ing to set­tle for Plan B: mor­tally wound him. [snip]

For a num­ber of peo­ple I’ve spo­ken to, putting a tor­pedo into Trump’s oper­a­tion would suf­fice for them — if they could mor­tally wound him in a pri­mary,” said a Repub­li­can insider involved in the effort.

It isn’t sur­pris­ing that the Democ­rats are still hav­ing a fit about the Hilliry Clinton’s sec­ond los­ing shot at the pres­i­dency, but what is with these Never Trumpers? What is the pur­pose of actively schem­ing to so divide the GOP that the Demo­c­rat can­di­date for the pres­i­dency in 2020 will likely win?

I’m really begin­ning to hate these back-​room worms. They are worse than the Orga­nized Left. At least the lat­ter are upfront about wanted to destroy the cohe­sive­ness of the country.

What?

President Trump’s antagonists inside the Republican Party now have a fallback plan to scuttle his re-election: using the 2020 primary fight as a bludgeon to inflict irreparable political damage on him in the November general election.

The “Never Trump” movement’s preferred strategy is to recruit a formidable Republican who might block the president’s renomination, or at least mount an aggressive challenge that presses him all the way to the convention in Charlotte set for late summer next year. Efforts are underway to woo Gov. Larry Hogan of Maryland and other top Republicans uneasy with Trump.

Short of that, key renegade Republicans are preparing to settle for Plan B: mortally wound him. [snip]

“For a number of people I’ve spoken to, putting a torpedo into Trump’s operation would suffice for them — if they could mortally wound him in a primary,” said a Republican insider involved in the effort.

It isn’t surprising that the Democrats are still having a fit about the Hilliry Clinton’s second losing shot at the presidency, but what is with these Never Trumpers? What is the purpose of actively scheming to so divide the GOP that the Democrat candidate for the presidency in 2020 will likely win?

I’m really beginning to hate these back-room worms. They are worse than the Organized Left. At least the latter are upfront about wanted to destroy the cohesiveness of the country.
