Conservative columnist Mark Steyn on Monday said that “nominal Republicans” who say they will vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton over presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump for president are acting “insane.”
Steyn, guest hosting on The Rush Limbaugh Show, was especially disappointed with two of his friends, satirist P.J. O’Rourke and Max Boot, who was Steyn’s editor at the Wall Street Journal.
Here’s the report of Steyn’s remarks from Newsmax.com:
“Hillary is the embodiment of corruption and, therefore, the death of the republic.
“To decide for someone on the take from Saudi princes, someone’s whose managed to deliver 20 percent of U.S. uranium into control of the Russians, someone whose husband has been credibly accused of rape and flies around with a known pedophile, and yet Hillary to these guys is who they’re going to be supporting in November.
“The Hillary Rodham Clinton presidency will be the death of the republic and the complete descent into banana republic status.”
Harsh words from Mark Steyn, but unfortunately, we can’t disagree with him. Corruption is the hallmark of third-world banana republics in Central and South America. And the Clintons have over 30 years of documented corruption in Arkansas and Washington D.C.
Do you agree with Steyn’s take that a Hillary presidency would make the United States a banana republic?
