David French, the last best hope of Trotskyite neoconservative Bill Kristol and others like him who apparently would like nothing better than to see Hillary Clinton in the White House, may have shot himself in the foot before his campaign ever got off the ground.

In a primary season interview with HuffPost Live, French, who has long been critical of Trump, was asked what he would do should the then-front-runner win the Republican nomination.

“What would I do?” French replied, “Well I would vote for Donald Trump … [laughs] I’m not one of these Republicans who say well I’m just going to take my ball and go home.”

Citing his distrust of Trump and his many concerns, French said Trump is still “not in the same league” as Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders.

But but but David, I thought you guys had “principles?” Do those include keeping your word?


In other French news (because why waste two posts on this guy or really anything else associated with the word ‘French?’), the National Review writer isn’t exactly thrilled about Paul Ryan’s Thursday endorsement of Donald Trump.

After the announcement, French Tweeted this to his 37,000 followers:

That’s right, Frenchie – keep reciting those ridiculous and untrue talking points, because they worked so well for all of Donald Trump’s primary opponents.
