The day after the only Vice Presidential debate of the 2016 presidential election, one VP candidate has had enough!
Weld will now stop campaigning, and instead focus all of his attention on attacking Republican presidential Donald J. Trump! Essentially, Weld is joining the Hillary campaign.
This is pathetic:
As some presumably small portion of Americans sat through a dull debate between the Republican and Democratic vice-presidential nominees on Tuesday night, a far more interesting drama was unfolding within the Libertarian ticket. VP candidate Bill Weld told the Boston Globe that he plans to focus exclusively on attacking Donald Trump for the remainder of the campaign — essentially admitting that running mate Gary Johnson can not become president.
Trump has Weld’s “full attention,” he explained, because his agenda is so terrible it’s “in a class by itself.” “I think Mr. Trump’s proposals in the foreign policy area, including nuclear proliferation, tariffs, and free trade, would be so hurtful, domestically and in the world, that he has my full attention,” Weld said.
Apparently he avoided acknowledging that his new mission amounts to working to make Hillary Clinton president. He pointed out that he disagrees with Clinton on fiscal and military issues, though last week on MSNBC he said he’s “not sure anybody is more qualified than Hillary Clinton to be president of the United States.”
So much for supporting “liberty” and “small government.” Is Weld a libertarian? He’s on a campaign that is doing as well – or better – than Ross Perot did in 1992. But 5 weeks before the election, he’s admitting that his only intention is to elect Hillary Clinton into the White House.
