The Lincoln Project is a group of never-tRumper Republicans. They created a slew of anti-tRump campaign ads and this podcast: https://embed.podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/explained-the-republican-national-committee/id1514968525?i=1000500851884
In this episode, the host Ron Steslow, interviews the New Hampshire Republican Party Chair Jennifer Horn and former chairman of the Republican National Committee Michael Steele about political parties & how these parties are supposed to function in American politics.
This what Jennifer Horn had to say: “if you look it up, you will see that the definition of a cult is misplaced or excessive devotion to a single individual. That is what a cult is. And we all know how damaging and dangerous cults can be.”
Michael Steele: “Grifter’s gotta grift.”
The rest of the pod is also very good.
