Conservative Fox News contributor George Will has left the Republican Party thanks to Donald Trump. And Will has a message for Republican voters: Make sure Trump loses.
According to PJ Media, Will said during a recent speech, “This is not my party.” Will also had some surprising advice for Republicans as to what to do about Trump:
“Make sure he loses. Grit their teeth for four years and win the White House,” Will said during an interview after his speech at a Federalist Society luncheon.
Will, a Fox News contributor, said a “President Trump” with “no opposition” from a Republican-led Congress would be worse than a Hillary Clinton presidency with a Republican-led Congress.
One thing that did not seem to be discussed was Will’s role on Fox News, the Trump cheerleaders. If Will feels that the GOP is not his party because of Trump, how can he feel that Fox News is his network?
Watch Will’s interview below.
So Will is grabbing his blankey and taking a nap. Pleasant dreams of Mitt Romney in the White House. ;^)
Cool eggheads like Will have no place in GOP 2016. I don’t see the GOP’s populist insanity getting anything but more desperate if Trump loses. Does Will have a place in FOX News post-2016 which appears to be adapting to this new Republican reality? Time will tell.
Not before the convention.
Pass the popcorn.
Certainly George and I still have little in common politically. So I doubt he’ll go down the same road I did. Still maybe some Republicans, like me, will see the crackpots like Trump, the Randians, and the Tea Party are the logical conclusion of where conservative thought has been leading for 20+ years. Until the populist extremists, crackpots, and Archie Bunkers are flushed from the Republican Party nobody of intelligence can stay. The Republican Party is nothing but an anti-intellectual, anti-science, anti-fact, emotional cesspool.
The popularity of Sanders and the civil war going on in the Republican Party indicate America’s 2-party system needs to break up and become more like other nations where there are multiple parties with none having a majority who are forced to share power. Sure, we have a couple minor parties like the Greens and Libertarians but they aren’t significant and remain at the fringe.
