Former top McCain aide: I’ll vote for Clinton over Trump

A former top aide to Sen. John McCain says he will support Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump in November as both candidates appear close to locking down their parties’ nominations.

Mark Salter was for years McCain’s closest aide, serving as strategist, speechwriter, Senate chief of staff and biographer to the 2008 Republican presidential nominee. But now, Salter says he’ll break with the Republican Party if it nominates Trump and vote for Clinton instead.

“Basically, I think she’s the more conservative choice and the least reckless one,” Salter told MSNBC in an email. “[Trump’s] policy views are like some drunk’s rant. If he tried to do anything like he says he will, we’d have no allies, a lot more enemies, and more of them with nukes. Finally, he’s unfit for the office, too, temperamentally and morally, a narcissistic bigot.”

2. This was back early May

 

You have a few threads with GOP backing Hillary. I think it's great! Most reasonable people know she will be a great commander in chief. If there is something you are trying to convey with these post.. just come out and say it. I've noticed people look for reasons to be outraged at Hillary. They go way out of their way to find something... anything..

"Finally, he’s unfit for the office, too, temperamentally and morally, a narcissistic bigot.” Love it!
