67,456 Dead. The Lincoln Project Calls Out Trump - And Trump Responds In The Only Way He Knows How

Last December a group of Republicans published an op-ed in the NYTimes under the headline:
We Are Republicans, and We Want Trump Defeated
The op-ed announced the creation of the Lincoln Project. It was initially a child of impeachment and it's mission read:
We do not undertake this task lightly nor from ideological preference. Our many policy differences with national Democrats remain. However, the priority for all patriotic Americans must be a shared fidelity to the Constitution and a commitment to defeat those candidates who have abandoned their constitutional oaths, regardless of party. Electing Democrats who support the Constitution over Republicans who do not is a worthy effort.
With arrival of the Coronavirus crisis they've been pointing out, in clarifying detail, Trump's deadly mismanagement of that crisis.  Here is their latest:

The text:
There’s mourning in America. Today, more than 60,000 Americans have died from a deadly virus Donald Trump ignored. With the economy in shambles, more than 26 million Americans are out of work—the worst economy in decades. Trump bailed out Wall Street, but not Main Street. This afternoon, millions of Americans will apply for unemployment, and with their saving run out, many are giving up hope. Millions worry that a loved one won’t survive COVID-19. There’s mourning in America, and under the leadership of Donald Trump, our country is weaker and sicker and poorer. And now, Americans are asking, if we have another four years like this, will there even be an America?
And, of course, the orange vulgarity took it all in stride:
A group of RINO Republicans who failed badly 12 years ago, then again 8 years ago, and then got BADLY beaten by me, a political first timer, 4 years ago, have copied (no imagination) the concept of an ad from Ronald Reagan, “Morning in America”, doing everything possible to....

....get even for all of their many failures. You see, these loser types don’t care about 252 new Federal Judges, 2 great Supreme Court Justices, a rebuilt military, a protected 2nd Amendment, biggest EVER Tax & Regulation cuts, and much more. I didn’t use any of them....

....because they don’t know how to win, and their so-called Lincoln Project is a disgrace to Honest Abe. I don’t know what Kellyanne did to her deranged loser of a husband, Moonface, but it must have been really bad. John Weaver lost big for Kasich (to me). Crazed Rick Wilson....

....lost for Evan “McMuffin” McMullin (to me). Steve Schmidt & Reed Galvin lost for John McCain, Romney’s campaign manager (?) lost big to “O”, & Jennifer Horn got thrown out of the New Hampshire Republican Party. They’re all LOSERS, but Abe Lincoln, Republican, is all smiles!
65,000+ dead and this is how he spends his time.

Oh and given the context, it's obvious that it's "Mourning..." and not "Morning..." in the ad. How could anyone not see that?

This is about what the Lincoln Project deserves.

There is a silver lining in this. The death toll is declining in the blue states and increasing in the red states. If the Trumpers in the red states continue to behave selfishly and recklessly more and more of them will die and the cycle may repeat for years if there is no vaccine. COVID-19 may be a blessing in disguise.
