Accepting that his presidential bid will fail, Libertarian vice presidential candidate Bill Weld on Tuesday obliquely urged voters to vote for Hillary Clinton.
In a Tuesday statement addressed to "those in the electorate who remain torn between two so-called major party candidates," the former Massachusetts governor told Republicans not to vote for the GOP nominee out of “fear for our country.”
“After careful observation and reflection, I have come to believe that Donald Trump, if elected President of the United States, would not be able to stand up to this pressure and this criticism without becoming unhinged and unable to perform competently the duties of his office,” he said at a Boston press conference.
Weld ticks off a long list of what he sees as Trump’s flaws, including his childish response to criticism, divisive rhetoric about immigrants and minorities, instability, and lack of familiarity with policy.
Here is a link to Weld's entire statement.
I have little use for Gary Johnson, but I have to admit that this Bill Weld guy is pretty impressive.
In the past he has also openly shared his admiration for Hillary Clinton and has stated that she would make a fine President.
I have no idea what this means for the Libertarian ticket moving forward, but I bet that Bill Weld just made Donald Trump's list of folks he wants to sue after this election.
