First off I’m surprised that Newsmax would carry a story like this especially when the Weekly Standard staff writer hasn’t put up any proof about these allegations. Why in the world would the Trump campaign use strong-arm tactics with someone like this guy? This is a farce.
David French said he had spent days praying and seeking God, and the answer he got back was it wasn’t his time to commit to running. Now he’s blaming it on the Trump campaign calling him and threatening his family.
This is referred to as a bait and switch. French had no shot at winning the presidential nomination so he was put into the race to muddy the waters, dirty the playing field with allegations and innuendos or at least that’s my opinion and I am sticking to it.
National Review columnist David French, who pulled out of a potential third-party bid for the presidency Sunday night, said Tuesday that a person claiming to be affiliated with Donald Trump’s campaign contacted his wife’s family in a “ham-handed effort to intimidate me” after news broke of his potential candidacy.
“An individual called and said ”I’m sorry but I’ve been asked by the Trump campaign to make sure that David knows this will be really bad for him,'” French told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program, explaining that he learned about the call after he decided not to run for office.
Further, the constitutional lawyer and columnist told the program, his multi-racial family has faced threats from Trump supporters because of his articles about the presumptive GOP nominee.
Those threats came even before Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol, who has been pushing hard for a third-party candidate to go up against Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, announced his name as a candidate.
“The assaults on my family have been overwhelming, just as a writer,” French told the program. “As everyone knows, Trump has an online racist mob that he often stokes by retweeting some of these horrible white supremacists. That online mob is fond of pointing out that I have a multiracial family and they have gone after my daughter in the worst way imaginable.”
French continued that his neighbors were also nervous there were going to be attacks in their neighborhood, even before he considered a run for the presidency.
Watch the interview here:
This guy did what he had to do. He came in with no chance; he went out with no chance, now he’s creating a crap storm with allegations that have no proof. Did French call the police? Did he record a phone call? Did he take out a restraining order against the Trump campaign?
If I call to threaten you, do you think I’ll tell you who I am? Then this guy is dumb enough to make it public and Morning Joe likes negatives about Trump so much that he didn’t catch how stupid it is.
What did this guy do after being intimidated? This staff writer wrote a story which got picked up by a couple of networks that then brought him on for an interview. Do you get my meaning now? This guy is a plant, pure and straightforward!
