Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol has now come out, again, to say he wants a 3rd person, independent candidate. He suggested someone like Nikki Haley.
So he wants an anti-Trump, anti-Hillary candidate. We could call it the ‘AA Tcket.’
Just days ago, Kristol went on Steve Malzberg’s show to declare he is not sure on #NeverTrump. Later, he said he was just joking and seriously #NeverTrump.
And now it is on. The Gateway Pundit reports a private meeting took place between Romney and Kristol, at Bill’s request.
William Kristol, the longtime editor of the Weekly Standard magazine and a leading voice on the right, met privately with the 2012 nominee on Thursday afternoon to discuss the possibility of launching an independent bid, potentially with Romney as its standard-bearer.
“He came pretty close to being elected president, so I thought he may consider doing it, especially since he has been very forthright in explaining why Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton should not be president of the United States,” Kristol said in a phone interview Friday, during which he confirmed that he and Romney had a “little meeting in Washington.”
Well, the funny part is that Romney specified he did not want Trump or Hillary to get elected. But by running, he would have a direct hand in getting Hillary into the White House. If he won’t do it, they will find another stool-pigeon to affect that outcome.
Maybe Hillary’s campaign could even coordinate with the Kristol Klan?
