October 24, 2020 — Today, the Lincoln Project is releasing a new video, “Yes,” starring Colorado Senator Cory Gardner, a notorious Trump ‘yes-man’.
During a debate on Tuesday, incumbent Senator Cory Gardner was asked if he felt President Trump was a moral and ethical man. Gardner paused for only a brief moment, but surely long enough to consider the 545 children who were separated from their now-lost parents at the Southern border, the over 222,000 COVID-19 patients that have died, the numerous Gold Star families whose sacrifices Trump has glossed over, calling their relatives “suckers” and “losers”, and the dozens of women he’s sexually harassed in one way or another. After such consideration, Gardner answers “Yes” as he always has when it comes to Trump.
“Cory Gardner is an embarrassment to Colorado,” said Reed Galen, co-founder of the Lincoln Project. “His votes agree with Trump nearly 90% of the time. It’s clear the man can’t think for himself, which may explain why he thinks Trump is moral and ethical. That, or, he doesn’t know what those words mean.”
Luckily for Coloradans, Gardner is also on the November 3rd ballot. Unfortunately for him, he’s up against John Hickenlooper – an actual moral and ethical man who proved himself a thoughtful, independent leader for all during his time as Governor. Defeating Trump means defeating his enablers as well, which is bad news for a lackey like Gardner.
