From Slate: "If reality show star Donald Trump proved, not at all figuratively, that anyone can run for president these days, conservative multitasker Bill Kristol appears set to test that hypothesis. Over the weekend, Kristol floated the idea that an independent candidate was coming to ballots near you and that this candidate was “an impressive one, with a strong team and a real chance.” On Tuesday, Bloomberg reported that Kristol’s secret candidate was none other than David French. Wait. Who? You know, conservative magazine staff writer, David French. Tennessee lawyer David French? Still nothing? Well, fear not, you’re not alone."
Here is David Horowitz: "This is a perfect instance of 'Trump derangement syndrome,' the underlying animus that motivates Kristol and his destructive cohorts. Dismissing Trump as an ignoramus and a stunted twelve-year old is the stuff of schoolyard put-downs, not a serious critique of someone with Trump’s considerable achievements. Yet this is typical of Trump’s diehard opponents on the right.Is Trump more unprepared than Barack Obama whose qualification for the presidency was a lifetime career as a leftwing agitator? And how did that work out? Despite the lacunae in his executive resume, Obama is now regarded as 'one of the most consequential presidents in American history' by reasonably qualified experts."
