In a tweet, the former editor-at-large of the now-defunct Weekly Standard, declared: “Not presumably forever; not perhaps for a day after Nov. 3, 2020; not on every issue or in every way until then. But for the time being one has to say: We are all Democrats now.”…

Another prominent conservative writer who took issue with Kristol’s tweet was National Review’s Alexandria DeSanctis who quote tweeted “No, one really doesn’t.”

Columnist Kimberly Ross tweeted: “Not even close. I’ve been an independent conservative since before the 2016 election and take plenty of issue with Trump and any uncritical supporters, but am no more sympathetic to the Democratic cause than I was before. This ‘Democrat by default’ mindset is sheer nonsense.”
