Politico:”David French says he’s not running for president”

Anti-Trump conservatives didn’t get their candidate.

David French tweeted Sunday night “after much thought and prayer” he will not be running for president.

French, a writer for the National Review, was courted by members of the Never Trump crowd to mount an independent bid for president, giving Republicans an alternative to Donald Trump.

“I gave it serious thought — as a pretty darn obscure lawyer, writer, and veteran — only because we live in historic times,” French wrote for the National Review. “Never before have both parties failed so spectacularly, producing two dishonest, deceitful candidates who should be disqualified from running for town council, much less leader of the free world.”

    LOL, if Bill Kristol is serious about this, he is going to have to run himself. Or he could support Gary Johnson or Darrell Castle but he wouldn’t because he is a neo-con.

    Hopefully enough of them will discover the Constitution Party or the Independent American Party. The Libertarian and Green Parties are getting a good amount of attention (which is awesome!) 🙂

    But there are going to be social conservatives looking for someone they can support and vote for.

    They have already discovered the LP, and they placed a candidate on the LP ticket. His name is William Weld.

    One might propose that Erick Erickson would be a good candidate for these people.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Watching the #NeverTrump movement implode has been one of the great jokes in an already strangely hilarious election

    Ode to #FrenchRevolution

    We stormed the Bastille
    We manned the barracks
    No blood on the tracks
    Asleep at the wheel

    We prepared a steal
    We unfroze Mammoth
    Shoved the behemoth
    ‘Til it lost its zeal

    We all consume veal
    Let the rest eat cake
    Twisted into steak
    Until all congeals

    You’re a haughty heel
    Tyrannosaurus
    Never restore us,
    Comb frolicking fields

    What sadness we feel
    All our money lost
    That is what it costs
    For the wrong Bastille
