Conservative Icon George Will Predicts The 'Pouting' End Of Donald Trump's Presidency
Trump is “a practitioner of crybaby conservatism,” Will noted in the op-ed published Wednesday.
“His presidency that began with a wallow in self-pity probably will end in ignominy when he slinks away pouting, trailing clouds of recriminations, without a trace of John McCain’s graciousness on election night 2008,” he added.
Will later used the column to call out the GOP, which he left in mid-2016 as Trump became its next presidential candidate.
The Republican Party had “eagerly surrendered its self-respect” in the Trump era, Will lamented, warning that “having hitched its wagon to a plummeting cinder” it “is about to have a rendezvous with a surly electorate wielding a truncheon.”
Will, a vocal opponent of the Trump White House, also suggested Democratic nominee Joe Biden (whom he endorsed in July) could “become the first candidate in 32 years to capture more than 400 electoral votes.”
