With time running out for the establishment to bust a cap into Donald Trump’s ass before the primaries begin, the stench of desperation hangs heavy in the air. The billionaire iconoclast has flummoxed the party bosses, frozen the dark money flows and driven deep-pocketed donors into whining jags about the man that they can’t buy. It has long been suspected but now confirmed that the corrupt elite would rather back Queen Hillary than Trump and a prominent backer of John Ellis Bush is saying so.
The Miami Herald delivers it straight from the horse’s mouth in the story “Top Jeb Bush political donor in Miami: I’ll vote for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump”:
One of Florida’s biggest conservative Republican moneymen — and a billionaire backer of Jeb Bush — is so disgusted by Donald Trump’s candidacy that if he has to, he’ll do the unthinkable:
“If I have a choice — and you can put it in bold — if I have a choice between Trump and Hillary Clinton, I’m choosing Hillary,” Miami healthcare magnate Mike Fernandez told the Miami Herald on Friday. “She’s the lesser of two evils.”
Outraged by Trump’s unimpeded ascent, Fernandez is taking on the GOP frontrunner himself. He purchased a full-page ad in the upcoming Sunday edition of the Herald calling Trump a “narcissistic BULLYionaire with a hunger to be adored.” He also likened him to some of history’s bloodiest demagogues.
“You have no idea how furious I am with my friends in the Republican Party who have embraced this guy,” Fernandez said.
Fernandez, a four-flushing rat if there ever was one is the epitome of all that is wrong with our rotten to the core political system today. Guys like him and his ilk bankroll whorish politicians like racehorses and when one wins they damned sure expect a big return on their investment. Fernandez’s ad buy is another comparison of Trump to Nazi fiend Adolf Hitler, similar to what Wall Street rodent John Kasich’s Super PAC ran a couple of weeks ago. When all else fails, play the Hitler card – and they all are doing so now – but the Trump as an anti-Semite narrative took a big hit when the Jewish Anti-Defamation League came out and defended him over a smear campaign launched after his speech to the high rollers at the Sheldon Adelson Republican Jewish Coalition pander fest the other day.
Now that it is increasingly likely that they won’t be able to stop Trump – who is going directly to voters with a series of barnstorming rallies – the favor seekers will be looking to cut deals with Mrs. Clinton. It is thanks to guys like Mr. Fernandez that conservatives have finally gotten to the point where they are mad as hell over being sold out after the votes are counted and they are not going to take it anymore.
