Yesterday I wrote since The Donald has become the presumptive nominee of the Grand Old Party for Grandiose Old White Guys, suddenly there were an awful lot of their party members deciding to jump on the Hillary bandwagon.
That trend has grown (groan?) in the last 24 hours.
“Mark Salter, a former speechwriter for John McCain, tweeted support for Clinton Tuesday after Trump peddled an unsubstantiated story by the National Enquirer linking Cruz’s father, Raphael Cruz, to John F. Kennedy’s assassination. In an email to MSNBC, Salter said he considered Clinton “the more conservative choice and the least reckless one.” ”
“Jamie Weinstein, senior editor at Tucker Carlson’s conservative news website Daily Caller also suggested he’d support Clinton over Trump, writing an op-ed Wednesday titled, “Hillary Is Preferable To Trump Just Like Malaria Is Preferable To Ebola.””Malaria is curable”
“And in an essay for the Federalist, staunch conservative (and five-time undefeated “Jeopardy” champion) Tom Nichols explained his rationale for supporting Clinton over Trump” Alter Net
Aside from the fact that Hillary is more conservative that the image that Donald Trump is currently projecting, the strategy here is that of the old Hamilton rule which is the same idea many of us had back in 2008 and 2012 when we figured out now President Obama was a neoliberal in liberal clothing.
Frankly, since it’s pretty much a given that the DNC will continue to rig the primaries and install Hillary as the nominee, I would much rather see Donald Trump as the winner in November than her. And it’s very much because of this idea.
