Once the “useful idiots” of #NeverTrump were no longer useful to their Establishment benefactors — once Trump was vanquished, and the rationale of #NeverTrump was over — suddenly the “open secret” of John Weaver’s predatory homosexual behavior became newsworthy.
Coincidence? I don’t think so.

Everything is now collapsing in #NeverTrump land, where the real scandal was how the founders used the reported $90 million they collected as their own personal piggy bank, paying their own consulting firms far more than was ever spent on actual campaign operations.
The exit of creepy Steve Schmidt from the Lincoln Project was particularly weird. Schmidt has always exuded an aura of sadism, as if he were restraining an urge to inflict violence on others. During his numerous appearances on MSNBC, Schmidt’s unblinking emotionless stare — his “flat affect,” as a psychologist would say — seemed either a tough-guy pose calculated to intimidate others or, if genuine, the mannerisms of a cold-blooded killer. Steve Schmidt struck me as a man thoroughly convinced of his own inherent righteousness, and such personalities are dangerous. The apparent absence of self-doubt, a lack of awareness of one’s own flaws and weaknesses, is always a troubling trait.
