Libertarian VP Candidate: Whatever You Do, Don't Vote For Trump

Accepting that his presidential bid will fail, Libertarian vice presidential candidate Bill Weld on Tuesday obliquely urged voters to vote for Hillary Clinton. 

 In a Tuesday statement addressed to "those in the electorate who remain torn between two so-called major party candidates," the former Massachusetts governor told Republicans not to vote for the GOP nominee out of “fear for our country.” 

 “After careful observation and reflection, I have come to believe that Donald Trump, if elected President of the United States, would not be able to stand up to this pressure and this criticism without becoming unhinged and unable to perform competently the duties of his office,” he said at a Boston press conference. 

 Weld ticks off a long list of what he sees as Trump’s flaws, including his childish response to criticism, divisive rhetoric about immigrants and minorities, instability, and lack of familiarity with policy.

Nearer to the beginning of the race Weld said "I don't consider myself part of the Never Trump movement"... so now this idiot, after "careful observation and reflection", has come to the realization that his ticket can't win... even though it's been obvious FOREVER that a 3rd party candidate can't get elected president? Ironically, Johnson might do better than 1% of the popular vote this time... thanks to Trump.
