#NeverTrumper Bill Kristol Pushes Gen. Jim Mattis Third Party Run “Totally Doable” (VIDEO)

Bill Kristol, The Weekly Standard co-founder, is one of the most outspoken Trump-bashers. He is a proud member of the #NeverTrump campaign.

In March Kristol said he would rather see Hillary Clinton win than Donald Trump.

Today on ABC’s This Week roundtable Kristol pushed the idea of General Jim Mattis as a third party candidate to take on Trump.

RCP Video reported:

BILL KRISTOL: The only thing that appeals to me is what Reince Priebus just called a dumb idea, which is giving the American people a better choice than Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump… I think an independent candidacy is totally doable, I think it will happen.

The ballot access problems are not insurmountable… [The ballot is closed for] Texas and North Carolina… I think a lot of patriotic Americans are going to look at this choice… and say the country deserves better than a Clinton-Trump choice…

Jim Mattis happens to be a social liberal, He is more liberal than I am. He is very concerned about the debt. he is a strong national security hawk, why wouldn’t someone like him?
