The Lincoln Project is a political action committee organized by Republicans who refuse to vote for Donald Trump in November.

After waking up from a coma, the supporter's family attempts to rationalize all of Trump's indefensible behavior in including his affairs, failure to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, and botched pandemic response.

The family's inability to cogently defend the president's actions holds a mirror up to the ways the Republican establishment has defended some of the president's most terrible actions.

"It would be funny if it wasn't so true," said Rick Wilson, co-founder of The Lincoln Project. "Republican Senators are doing the same mental gymnastics to justify their support of Trump. But no one is laughing."
