Bill Kristol: I’m #NeverTrump, But, You Know, ‘Never Say Never’

Bill Kristol has emerged as one of the biggest #NeverTrump voices on the right, and yet he said today that it’s not really a “never say never” situation.

On Newsmax earlier today, Steve Malzberg asked if there’s anything Trump could do to win him over. Kristol said it’s hard because there’s a serious character issue with Trump he’s not sure he could get past.

This is the same Bill Kristol who wrote this:

And the same Bill Kristol who tweeted this:
