Should auld acquaintance be forgot? The Lincoln Project says yes
Updated: Apr 21, 2020
Almost exactly two years ago, my relationship with a life-long friend came to a sudden, heated end. It took time, but eventually I realized just how toxic that friendship had been and how my life improved after.
As the New Year gets under way, many Republicans may find themselves in a similar situation.
Much like our current president, my thin-skinned former friend was prone to fits of rage over trivial things (usually board games or fantasy football). He’d browbeat anyone who criticized him and harangue people who didn’t do what he wanted. And God help anyone, like me, who had the gall to stand up to him.
But at least he didn’t have the ability to start a war with Iran.
