A Mini-Movie From Lincoln Project ‘Wake Up’ Shows A Republican Waking Up From A Coma ala Dead Zone

This is a different style for Lincoln Project. It’s a short movie, just over six minutes in length. It tells the story of a Republican who went into a coma three and a half years ago. When he wakes up, his family catches him up on how the world he knew has gone completely to hell with Donald Trump in office. Of course, being Republicans themselves, they waffle and try to rationalize, and that’s the comedy.

“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.”

Interesting this would come out today, when the co-founder of the Federalist Society had his own come to Jesus moment and decided that if Trump attempts to delay the election, he should be impeached. I’m frankly hoping that something along those lines will be the topic of the next Lincoln Project ad. They’re doing some interesting work.
