Surprise! Despite Trump Having the Support of 90%+ Republicans, The Media's Go-To Republicans for Analysis of Trump Is... Never Trumpers

Gee, I wonder why.

They're called #NeverTrumpers. A group of former or current Republicans who loath President Trump so much that every day in print and on TV is an exercise in the kind of vitriol that makes most Democrats look downright timid.

First, who are the leading #NeverTrumpers? Here's your Top-10 in no particular order: Bill Kristol. Jennifer Rubin. George Will. Joe Scarborough. Steve Schmidt. Max Boot. David Frum. David Brooks. Bret Stephens. Ana Navarro.


If these names seem like they're more ubiquitous lately, it's because they are. Nary an hour goes by on cable news or Twitter or print media where you won't hear or find some hyperbolic statement regarding their unfiltered feelings about the president.

And if you're a cable news executive or producer or online publisher, nothing in political punditry seems to make for headlines-grabbing TV or clickbait better than a Republican (or in Scarborough's, Schmidt's and Boot's case, former Republican) slamming a Republican president in the most deeply-of-personal terms that have little to do with tax cuts or ISIS strategy or Supreme Court nominees.

Joe Concha's article quotes Mollie Hemingway, talking about this on Howie Kurtz's show. Click on the link for more. The video of that discussion is embedded below (or available at the link, if the embed doesn't work for you).

Susan Ferrechio notes that NeverTrumpers' status as The "Republicans The Media Loves" makes them "high-value" and "will keep them on the air." Though she says specifically she's not saying that's why they've flipped sides.
