High-profile conservative political pundit George Will has decided that he’s had enough of a Republican Party that would have Donald Trump as its standard-bearer.
In a speech to the gathered at a Federalist Society luncheon in Washington, DC on Friday, Will said flatly, “This is not my party.”
Following the speech, Will spoke briefly with the online news outlet PJ Media (PJM), and advised Republican voters, “Make sure he loses. Grit their teeth for four years and win the White House.” Will’s implication is that four years of Hillary Clinton, following eight years of Obama, will so sour the Republican base that they will surely do what he sees as the right thing and nominate a true, textured conservative in 2020 around which all party members can rally, and win back the White House.
Will, who gets around the media circles as a Washington Post writer as well as a regular contributor over at FOX News, told PJM that he has officially switched his voter registration in Maryland from Republican to “unaffiliated.”
According to Will, a Trump administration working hand in hand with a Republican Congress would be much worse…as in, do more damage…than a President Hillary Clinton forced to contend with a Republican-led Congress at every turn.
Will has been particularly critical of Trump’s White House run this year, referring to the Donald as a “real amateur in politics” during a recent appearance on FOX News.
