A former Secret Service agent who is running for Congress as a Florida Republican has a brutal message for party members who refuse to back presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Dan Bongino, who is making a run to represent Florida’s southwest region after failing to win in 2014 in Maryland, says he sees too many GOP politicians not supporting Trump. That’s essentially the same as voting for Clinton, according to an interview with WND.com.
“Understand this … by supporting Hillary you are actively contributing to the destruction of the greatest country on Earth,” he thundered. “This is not a theoretical exercise. You are destroying your kids’ economy. You are destroying your kids’ health care system. You are destroying your kids’ education system. You are destroying any semblance of reality in our court system. You’re destroying any sense of getting the government out of your life through this massive overgrowth of government bureaucracy. And you’re entrenching seven years of Barack Obama.
“You. In real time, you’re doing that.
“Bret Stephens at the Wall Street Journal said at least Mrs. Clinton isn’t a sociopath,” Bongino charged. “Listen, I was a graduate student in psychology. I encourage you strongly to look up the definition of a sociopath. Maybe you’ll re-evaluate that stance.
“What is this, some bizarre theoretical exercise to you where you think you’re making some kind of a point by supporting Hillary Clinton?” he asked. “What’s your point? ‘I hate America and I want to destroy it?’”
Bongino’s comments come after GOP elites and the failed “Never Trump” movement attempts to prop up former CIA staffer Evan McMullin, who recently launched an independent presidential bid.
