Who’s Larry Pressler and why did he give his endorsement to the person that had a hand in creating ISIS? Very weird.
I don’t know this moderate Senator from South Dakota, but if he’s willing to sacrifice his name to swear allegiance to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, then he can have her.
So let me get this straight. Hillary Clinton says that anyone under an FBI investigation shouldn’t be able to buy a gun! However, it seems to be okay to run for President while under an FBI investigation. I guess that makes sense! She wants to be in control of the world’s greatest military but wait she’s under FBI investigation, and this former Republican Senator backs her? Guess you know where his bread is buttered.
He could have easily voted Libertarian, but obviously, this GOP senator is in in love with the power structure that exists already.
From The Hill:
Former Sen. Larry Pressler (R-S.D.) called for universal background checks on all gun sales and an assault weapons ban Monday in the wake of the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.
“I can’t believe I’m endorsing Hillary Clinton for president, but I am,” said Pressler, who spoke with The Hill on Monday after endorsing Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, in a statement issued over the weekend.
“This morning, I woke up and told my wife, ‘Did I really do that?’ ” he said. “But I did.
“If someone had told me 10 years ago I would do this, I wouldn’t have believed them.”
Pressler, a moderate Republican who served three terms in the Senate before losing his seat to Democrat Tim Johnson in 1997, said he believes voting for Clinton is the “responsible thing to do.”
He said he feels disenfranchised by Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, and modern-day congressional Republicans who have opposed efforts to expand background checks for gun sales.
“We need to go the route of more gun control as a result of Orlando and all the other shootings that have occurred,” Pressler said. “But it’s almost as though Republicans are saying gun control shouldn’t be part of the conversation at all.”
Pressler, you are an idiot. Have you learned nothing while in Congress?
What kind of rabbit hole did Pressler fall into? The Orlando shooting is not about gun control. It’s about radical Islamic terrorism on our soil. Which logic dictates should result in Pressler endorsing Donald Trump? Not Hillary.
