Bill Kristol Teases ‘Impressive’ Third-Party Candidate; Trump Responds: ‘Dummy’ and ‘Loser’

trump kristol great predictions on twitterOn Twitter Sunday afternoon Bill Kristol courted mockery and scorn from GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump when he teased the imminent announcement of an “independent candidate — an impressive one, with a strong team and a real chance.”

The Weekly Standard editor has been leading the charge in recent weeks for an independent conservative to challenge Trump in the general election.

Trump responded in characteristic fashion, lashing out at Krisol as a “dummy” and a “loser.” He also echoed his campaign manager Corey Lewandowski who said on Fox Sunday that if a third-party candidate entered the race, it would spell the end of the Second Amendment, because a Democrat would make new appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court.
