He isn’t a Democrat, he’s a Republican who hates Trump. He doesn’t think he can’t win the GOP back from Trump so he’s looking at a crowded Dem field and thinking he can exploit the Moderates fear of Bernie and Warren to steal the nomination and beat Trump at his own game. He takes down Trump, gets lauded for “saving American democracy”, avoids the ultra-progressive wealth redistribution policies of Bernie and Warren and he gets the highest office in the land. Would he be worse than Trump? No, I genuinely think he would be a middling president, possibly even decent. But that’s not what we really need now.
I get that the vast amount of money he puts into advertisements warps the airtime coverage for other candidates, but you still need votes to win an election and people need to cast those votes. So, who is voting for this douchebag? The woefully ignorant? The racist whites in the Dems? The corporate cockmongers who are holding on to their power? All of the above, right? That means if he wins any election, he’s not buying it. He’s just waving his asshole flag and we get to realize that our party is made up of these assholes rather than the other way around.
