I have a MAJOR prediction to make about the impending U.S. General Election contest between #HillaryClinton and Donald Trump: liberal commentator VAN JONES could be getting ready to ENDORSE #MrTrump. And he won’t be alone.
A number of leading liberal media pundits (like CNN’s #GloriaBorger and others) have been nursing a closet admiration for Mr Trump and the sheer chutzpah (and astonishing success) of his outsider bid for the Presidency of the United States of America. These commentators have been struggling to conceal their sympathies and biding their time while awaiting the outcome of the first presidential debate between Trump and Clinton before making any announcement.
These liberals have failed to summon within themselves any enthusiasm for #Hillary nor a compelling reason to support her candidacy beyond the fact of her gender. No longer do these liberals feel beholden to #Clinton nor obliged to vote #Democrat. They have watched Mr Trump for months now and have come to the conclusion that the billionaire is to the ideological LEFT of Hillary on the issues that matter to them to a degree sufficient enough to off-set and render manageable, if not palatable, those issues on which Mr Trump is to her ideological RIGHT.
When combined with the insurgency and imagination with which Mr Trump has conducted his #WhiteHouse bid – and in the context of a presidential race in which Mr Trump is the undeniable #WashingtonOutsider – they have come to the not-entirely-painless conclusion that voting for Mr Trump in 2016 is the electorally, if not ideologically, LOGICAL follow-up to their vote for #BarackObama in 2008.
