RINOs assailed Trump as much as Democrats.
The establishment of both parties despised him.
And one Republican renegade proved she’s gone full-on socialist.
Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post is no longer a conservative commentator.
Now she’s revealed herself as a full-fledged establishment Democrat backer.
Even the left-wing media is calling out Rubin’s shilling for the Biden administration.
Chief of Staff RON KLAIN has retweeted or @ mentioned Rubin more than three dozen times since mid-May. The White House press team, the Democratic National Committee, the State Department, and the vice president’s office have all promoted various columns and tweets from her in recent weeks. That’s because Rubin usually backs up the administration. In the past month, her headlines included: “Biden delivers straight talk — and wins kudos,” “The State Department deserves more credit for its effort to evacuate Americans from Afghanistan,” and “Why Kamala Harris’s trip to Asia was so important.”
Given Trump’s foreign policy during his administration, Rubin was among the many neocons who have fled to the Left.
Rubin joins Bill Kristol, and Steve Schmidt and other Lincoln Project members in begging the Democrats for money and power.
Leftists never embrace conservatives, just tolerate them if they are helpful.
And Rubin’s really helpful for Democrats.
The White House has encouraged outside allies to share some of Rubin’s articles online. One told West Wing Playbook that they declined to do so because they thought it was just too embarrassing to earnestly share a Rubin column, given her history as a conservative and perceived tendency to pander to the administration. One Post employee said some people in the newsroom are increasingly frustrated that Rubin is parroting the administration’s critiques of the media, which they believe emboldens the administration to push back on journalists even further. Two others say they just try to ignore her or don’t read her columns.
Rubin is losing friends on the Right and gaining new ones on the Left.
Trump shattered the brains of many establishment hacks, including Rubin, so she settled for crumbs from the Biden administration and a spot on MSNBC to mock Republicans.
