Bill Kristol Promises ‘Impressive’ independent candidate as Choice Other then Trump or Hillary (Update: Donald French, Who?)(Update: Kristol, Maybe You Are a Jack Ass)
SORRY, BUT UNLESS THE CANDIDATE IS RONALD REAGAN, I DON’T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IT.
So sore loser Bill Kristol promises an Independent presidential candidate that will be impressive to offer an alternative to Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Honestly, I am not buying it. No matter whether they are impressive or not, the independent candidate will split the GOP vote and Hillary will win. Brilliant work Bill Kristol. IDIOT! I was not a Trump voter in the primaries and frankly I don’t like many of his views and he is no way conservative enough for me. Sadly, the American voters fell for the BS when they had their chance to vote for a real conservative. That being said, although Donald Trump is not my first choice, Hillary is no choice. Why anyone would help Hillary Clinton win the presidency when so much is on the line is contemptible. Yes, I am referring to you Bill Kristol.
“Just a heads up over this holiday weekend: There will be an independent candidate — an impressive one, with a strong team and a real chance,” Kristol said in a message on Twitter.
Kristol has been leading an effort to recruit an independent candidate to take on Clinton and Trump, who each have unusually high negative favorability ratings.
It was not clear from Kristol’s message whether the name of a candidate would be produced over the weekend or at an undisclosed date in the future. However, time for the purported candidate is already short. The deadline for making it on the November ballot in Texas passed on May 9. The next deadline is in North Carolina, where the candidate will need to provide about 90,000 signatures from supporters by June 9 in order to make it on the ballot.
At some point those that lost need to figure out a way to make Donald Trump win. He is the far lesser of the two evils. I am not sure if I am going to say that Kristol’s actions are a betrayal of the GOP, but its close. But I am also not going to take the “hope springs eternal” approach and believe for one second that such actions by those in the GOP establishment, who can’t stand losing, is a good thing.
Actually, Bill Kristol, you might just be one yourself. For you to actually think that only you can come up with the proper candidate for the GOP might just make you a jackass. The privileged class of Republican pundits who have given us the GOP party of today might as well just take a walk too. I was not a Trump supporter, however, he is going to be the GOP nominee. So you can either vote for Trump, vote for Hillary, and gum up the works like Kristol is doing that will cause Hillary to work. Nice. I think that might make you worse than a jack ass.
Bill Kristol may be a loser in Donald Trump’s eyes, but at least he’s not “a roaring jackass,” the Weekly Standard editor said Tuesday in response to the presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s verbal attack.
During a news conference inside Trump Tower on Tuesday, Trump argued that he doesn’t refer to some Republicans and conservatives as “losers.”
“I said Bill Kristol is a loser,” Trump explained, before launching into Kristol’s criticism of Trump, such as his ultimately incorrect predictions that Trump would lose certain states in the Republican primary. Kristol also tweeted over the weekend: “There will be an independent candidate–an impressive one, with a strong team and a real chance.”
“I didn’t say everybody. Many, but I didn’t say everybody,” Trump continued. “Bill Kristol is a loser. His magazine is failing, as you know. It’s gonna be down — I don’t think it even survives,” Trump said. “He’s getting some free publicity, but Bill Kristol, I’ve been watching this for two years.”
UPDATE II: Donald French for President?
Actually Bill Kristol, you just might be a roaring, idiotic, out of touch jackass. Wow, this is your guy, seriously?
As Donald Trump stomped his way to the Republican nomination in recent months, Bill Kristol has been stuck on the first stage of grief: denial.
While it becomes ever-clearer that Trump and Hillary Clinton will face off as history’s most unlikeable presidential choices, the so-called wrongest man in politics has repeatedly teased the prospect of an “independent” candidate mounting a challenge—at Kristol’s behest, of course.
At first Kristol was smitten with criminal-justice anti-reformer Tom Cotton, but that went nowhere. Months later, the neocon thought leader backed “The Boy Tweeter of the Platte,” Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse. The energy for that dissipated before it could form. And then it was the revisiting of a Mitt Romney candidacy. Because that worked out so well in 2012.
