While almost everyone looks forward to the polls closing in Georgia tonight, Democrats and Never Trumpers alike have stepped up to provide us all with some high-quality entertainment while we wait.
Failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton performed her act of entertainment last night in a tweet in which she proclaimed that President Trump’s “one goal” was “to distract people from the fact that he lost.”
However, her tweet was just a warm-up act for the real show that was to come later in the evening on CNN, when Don Lemon-hosted panel of Never Trump Republicans started shouting at each other as they tried playing one-upmanship games and traded insults.
From Red State:
It all started after former Trump White House comms director Anthony Scaramucci suggested that one reason people were drawn to the Trump “cult” was because of identity politics. Fake Republican Ana Navarro took issue with his statement, and it went downhill from there, with NeverTrumper Amanda Carpenter taking swipes at Scaramucci on live TV and Scaramucci responding in kind:
NAVARRO: It’s a stupid–You know damn well it’s a dog whistle. You’re too smart for that, [Anthony].
CARPENTER: Well, he worked for Trump, so I don’t know.
SCARAMUCCI: You worked for Ted Cruz, a full-on traitor. What are you talking about? You don’t have any standing to say that.
CARPENTER: Excuse me? Excuse me, Anthony Scaramucci.
SCARAMUCCI: You worked for Ted Cruz, a full on traitor. C’mon.
CARPENTER: I remember you going to the cameras and praising Donald Trump to the hilt. When I worked for Ted Cruz, you want to go there? He took principled Constitutional stands. Excuse me, what was that? You really think I should answer to you? With my work history, when you were Donald Trump’s communications person willingly? Get lost.
SCARAMUCCI: Don’t be a hypocrite on national TV. I owned to the mistake of Donald Trump. Try not to be a hypocrite on national TV.
CARPENTER: You were Donald Trump’s mouthpiece. Everybody knew what kind of person he was then and has shown himself to be now.
SCARAMUCCI: 74 million people voted for him. This is the country you’re living in.
It’s even better when you watch the video of the wild segment. Check it out below:
