It just keeps getting worse for Bill Kristol.
The former editor of now-defunct Weekly Standard, which #NeverTumped itself to death, was the subject of a Twitter smackdown from a Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) early Tuesday morning.
Gaetz dug up Kristol’s August endorsement of Chris Dosev, who challenged Gaetz in a 2018 midterm primary and was summarily destroyed. In the endorsement, Kristol said Dosev was “impressive” and called Gaetz “one of the worst GOP members.”
Gaetz has been a strong supporter of President Donald J. Trump and the America First agenda, naturally pitting him against curmudgeon Kristol, the out-of-touch dinosaur.
“An unimpressive endorsement from one of the worst former publishers,” Gaetz shot back at Kristol.

This Tweet exchange is a perfect metaphor for the relationship between the old guard Republican establishment and the new, America First GOP. Kristol, who has not been relevant since America’s populist revolution, endorsed a loser and then watched haplessly as his formerly-impenetrable publication sank like the Titanic. Meanwhile, Gaetz won his election and bested Kristol.
It is no mystery why this trend continues. Americans want elected officials and public figures to fight for their interests. Americans do not want smug elitists who only pretend to care about them until cocktail hour, when they meet up with their black-tie D.C. friends to bash the peasant class.
Weekly Standard shuttered last week, finally succumbing to a market that no longer cares for anti-Trump conspiracy theory and snobby commentary.
Big League Politics reported:
A formerly-relevant conservative magazine has shut down after two years of #NeverTrump commentary finally drove the majority of its readership away.
“All good things come to an end. And so, after 23 years, does The Weekly Standard. I want to express my gratitude to our readers and my admiration for my colleagues. We worked hard to put out a quality magazine, and we had a good time doing so. And we have much more to do. Onward!” said Bill Kristol, formerly Weekly Standard’s editor-at-large and the publication’s most prominent personality.
Kristol is known for ditching the GOP over the nomination of President Donald J. Trump in favor of the globalist establishment. Weekly Standard’s former readers left for more in-touch media sources and never forgave him. After 23 years in business, the publication became obsolete in just two years.

Arizona’s McSally Introduces Resolution to End Senate Salaries Until Stimulus Passes
If the people won’t get paid, neither will their legislators.
Arizona Senator Martha McSally has introduced a Senate resolution that would withhold pay from all U.S. Senators until the chamber passes the eagerly-awaited Coronavirus stimulus, termed as ‘TrumpBux’ by some for the one-time payments of $1,200 to almost all American adults.
Americans have been largely cut off from everyday economic life by the governmental response to an act of God. It’s all too obvious that federal compensation is required.
“If Americans aren’t getting paid, then neither should the Senators failing to support the workers and families who need help making ends meet,” said the freshman Arizona Senator.
“Today, I introduced legislation to have Senators’ pay withheld until relief is passed. It is despicable that millions of Americans are without a paycheck in this time of crisis, while the Senate wastes precious time playing political games. The Senate must pass this relief package now in order to get cash straight to the people.”
Fortunately for Senators that would prefer a path of continued political grandstanding, the planned stimulus may be sent to the President’s desk on Wednesday after negotiations between Chuck Schumer and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.
The final estimate of the stimulus cost has been gauged at $2 trillion dollars, a sizable package that will be distributed in a combination of TrumpBux and loans to small and big businesses.
There are some similarities between the TrumpBux proposal and universal basic income. The former isn’t ‘universal-‘ individuals who reported more than $75,000 in income on their 2018 tax return will get less money and those who reported more than $100,000’ won’t get anything.
McSally’s proposal ultimately could prove to be the final metaphorical poker stick to the feet of obstructionist Democrats seeking to delay the stimulus package with feckless political gamesmanship.
