Anti-Trumpers Launch Attack Ad On First Female Combat Pilot Senator For Her 'Lack Of Bravery' [Video]
A group of never-Trumpers known as the Lincoln project launched a heinous ad that slammed Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) claiming she lacked 'courage' and toughness' that former Senators like John McCain had. They note McSally's support of President Trump makes her a coward and forgettable.
Honestly, this was just a disgusting display of a smear campaign concocted by a bunch of, so-called, 'former GOP' members against the first female combat pilot Senator.
According to TownHall, the Lincoln Project, an anti-Trump group that has emerged as nothing short of a GOP punchline, has launched a campaign against Republican senators who support President Trump on impeachment. The group is headed by Never Trump Republicans, including the husband of White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway, George Conway. Also in the group's leadership is Rick Wilson, who recently categorized supporters of President Trump as illiterate in an appearance on CNN.
"President Donald Trump and those who sign onto Trumpism are a clear and present danger to the Constitution and our Republic. Only defeating so polarizing a character as Trump will allow the country to heal its political and psychological wounds and allow for a new, better path forward for all Americans," the website reads.
McSally served in the USAF from 1988 to 2010 and rose to the rank of colonel before retiring. One of the highest-ranking female pilots in the history of the Air Force, McSally was the first American woman to fly in combat following the 1991 lifting of the prohibition on female combat pilots.
More on McSally's military career:
McSally earned her USAF pilot's wings in 1991 after completing Undergraduate Pilot Training at Williams AFB east of Phoenix, Arizona. Following graduation, she was assigned to Laughlin AFB, Texas, as a First Assignment Instructor Pilot (FAIP) in the T-37 trainer. When the military's combat aircraft restriction for female pilots was removed, McSally went on to Lead-in Fighter Training (LIFT) in 1993.
McSally then completed Replacement Training Unit for the A-10 Thunderbolt II at Davis-Monthan AFB, Arizona, and was assigned to an operational A-10 squadron that deployed to Kuwait in January 1995. During this deployment, McSally flew combat patrols over Iraq in support of Operation Southern Watch, enforcing the no-fly zone over southern Iraq and became "the first female U.S. fighter pilot to fly in combat and the first woman to command a fighter squadron.
Coward? I think not! I would be interested to see the military records of the members of the Lincoln Project.
