Besides that. If this clown runs and gets enough vote away from Trump in the general, he will swing Michigan over to the New National Socialist party of America

Needs to be squished like a bug. Trump is drawing the battle lines and it’s time to pick sides.

Idiot.

Evil idiot.

He knows he has ZERO chance, but he can hurt Trump and help the Dems if some other fools vote for him, instead of Trump.

Sounds like he should be more outspoken against the GOP leadership in Congress, not President Trump.
