Self-proclaimed Republicans and conservatives have jumped on the anti-Trump bandwagon — just like the media, continuing to ride despite the fact that President Trump saved the country from a Hillary Clinton presidency. Nothing President Trump does seems to be good enough to gain the support of the media or establishment Republicans. One allegedly “conservative” journalist is an example of this.
Bill Kristol, the same pseudo-conservative who supported liberal Evan McMullin in an attempt to cost Donald Trump the election, took a jab at the President recently. As The Hill reported, Kristol stated: “I don’t know who’ll be Time’s 2017 Person of the Year, but I must say it would be nice if Robert Mueller turns out to be Time’s 2018 Person of the Year.”
Kristol’s tweet came after President Trump revealed that he has turned down Time Magazine’s Person of the Year honor. Mr. Trump tweeted, “Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named ‘Man (Person) of the Year,’ like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!”
Kristol’s tweet implies favor toward Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who has been investigating alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia since early this year. Apparently, Kristol hopes the investigation is a success, and uncovers damning information about President Trump. This indicates that Kristol (and perhaps Mueller) may share the same goal of impeachment as the Left.
However, the investigation has turned up nothing to support those allegations. Mueller has only produced arrests of former short-lived campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and his associate, for failing to register as foreign agents when they worked with Ukraine prior to working with the Trump camp. Despite this failure to find evidence for the investigation’s actual purpose, the probe will carry on into 2018.
Kristol, who is the founder and editor-at-large of The Weekly Standard, admitted that President Trump and other current societal issues and scandals are challenging his long-held political beliefs.
Kristol tweeted, “The GOP tax bill’s bringing out my inner socialist. The sex scandals are bringing out my inner feminist. Donald Trump and Roy Moore are bringing out my inner liberal. WHAT IS HAPPENING?”
Those kind of remarks are unheard of for a true conservative. Kristol has criticized and opposed Donald Trump throughout the 2016 Republican primary and general election. In June, he claimed that the US was reliving their own version of the fall of the Roman empire as a result of President Trump’s leadership.
Kristol was one of the establishment Republicans behind the campaign of the unknown congressional staffer, Evan McMullin, to be the “Never Trump” independent candidate. The purpose was to steal enough electoral votes from Donald Trump, thus thwarting his presidential bid. Kristol is such a “conservative” that he backed a liberal independent candidate over GOP’s Donald Trump, even though it risked a Hillary Clinton presidency.
The Washington Examiner revealed in August that Kristol is in discussions for the creation of a “Committee Not to Renominate the President,” which is considered a facelift of the “Never Trump” movement for 2020. Kristol stated to the New York Times, “We need to take one shot at liberating the Republican Party from Trump, and conservatism from Trumpism.”
Kristol retweeted the story with the message, “The task in 2020: ‘Liberating the Republican Party from Trump, and conservatism from Trumpism.'”
Bill Kristol is nothing more than a globalist Neocon — using the GOP and the “conservative commentator” labels in an attempt to sway other Republicans to the anti-Trump movement. That Kristol wishes for Mueller to find information to condemn President Trump shows that he is nothing but a spiteful enemy of the President.
