A former spokesperson for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign and DNC Press Secretary has launched a new organization called “The Trump Accountability Project” with the stated goal of creating a list of Trump supporters and “remembering what they did.”
Hari Sevugan has been a prominent voice pushing to make life miserable for Trump supporters, even encouraging people to contact potential employers and let them know “there are consequences for hiring anyone who helped Trump attack American values.”
It is unclear, at this point, what those consequences might be.
Popular democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was one of several prominent democrats who called for Trump supporters to be put on a list or archive of some sort, wondering out loud if anyone was tracking them.
Drew Holden reported on several others who have threatened some form of retribution against Trump supporters. Robert Reich called for a “truth and reconciliation commission” while MSNBC commentator Chris Hayes echoed the same. “Lincoln Project” flak and MSNBC pundit Steve Schmidt said people who have worked for the President are “complicit in the assault against American democracy” while adding that “none of them should be forgiven.”
Former Vice President Joe Biden attempted to call for unity following several media outlets calling the election in his favor, but those calls seem to have fallen on deaf ears. Even CNN aired a segment that appeared to try and shame those who “haven’t congratulated Biden” and have been “enablers” to “Trump’s defiance.”
Former Fox News and NBC host Megyn Kelly reacted to the numerous accountability lists being created amidst the calls for unity from Biden, arguing his tweets saying the nation was “healed” after his election rang hollow and sounded like it was written by someone “in their basement” given how divided the country is currently.
