Krauthammer: Cantor Jeb Endorsement, ‘Clumsiness of a Cosmic Proportion’ ‘Mirror Image’ of Hillary’s Book Tour

Columnist Charles Krauthammer blasted former Congressman Eric Cantor’s (R-VA) endorsement of Republican presidential candidate and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush on Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report.”

Krauthammer said, [relevant remarks around 6:45] “It’s not only the ideological statement and the fact that it’s an insider, it’s a demonstration of clumsiness of a cosmic proportion. I mean, the minute anybody heard about this, they would raise their eyebrows and say, ‘Why would you do this?’ This makes no sense. And this is supposed to be the most accomplished, highly staffed strategized political campaign. I mean, it shows a — I mean, it’s like sort of the mirror image of the Hillary campaign when it took off with the book tour, or at least began unofficially with the book tour, where every step was a misstep. And you have to ask yourself, well, these highly touted machines we’re supposed to be unbeatable, they make mistakes that an amateur wouldn’t make.”
