A lot has happened since my well known essay “The Collapse of the Never Trumpers” appeared in 2018 — and none of it has been good for that tribe of pundits or their garden gnome leader, Bill Kristol. In fact, most of them have seen their careers collapse so spectacularly that only Michael Avenatti could really understand. George Will has semi-retired to a life of boring students to death as a commencement speaker at small colleges. Jonah Goldberg and Steven Hayes used to appear on Fox News regularly but now they pretend to fax a newsletter every morning to their remaining friends and family and David French.
And this is the nice sweet part. The rest is child abuse with a B-52 doing an arc-light mission. Go read and have fun.
