The sounds of the pealing of sonorous bells were abundant across the land of the Never Trump Thursday morning, when word spread that another of their number – a principled conservative – had announced her support for presumed Democrat presidential pick, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden. Much ballyhoo and rejoicing were heard throughout the forests and the plains, echoing among the vast mountains and the deep valleys, carried upon the waters and over wind-swept, desert sandscapes.

Or something like that.

Mark down former GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina as just the latest ‘principled’ Republican to tell U.S. conservatives where she stands in 2020 — next to the opposing party’s guy.

It’s quite a shock for Fiorina, whom 2016 primary front runner Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) gave the nod as his vice presidential running mate, to so blatantly attack the Republican nominee and publicly say she’ll vote for what will potentially be the most progressive, presidential ticket in U.S. history. And where did she go to reveal this move? Why, in a sit-down with the Atlantic, naturally.

Conservatives didn’t waste a minute before letting her have it.

The “other” Stephen Miller pointed out the mainstream media’s marked change in tone towards Fiorina from ’12:

As I mentioned earlier, she wasn’t the first GOP pol to “come out.” Just a few hours later…

Mike Madrid also made his stand for “decency, competence, and character” known. Who’s that? Only the co-founder of The Lincoln Project, an anti-Trump SuperPAC/grift that gleefully donates to Democrat candidates, as RedState has written about several times during this election cycle.

Don’t expect this trend to end anytime soon.
