MSNBC Guest Calls Out Bill Kristol For His "Bomb Iran" Punditry
If you look very carefully there is still a cohort of lifelong Republicans from the NeoCon Bush years that refuse to give into Donald Trump and his "not normal" style of governing. This list includes people like Nicolle Wallace, David French, Jeff Flake, and Bill Kristol.
Kristol has had a bit of a public image renaissance since his party moved away from his milquetoast banal style of evil to Trump's ostentatious and pompous evil. This is mostly fueled by center or center-left folks who have found common ground with conservatives that believe in things like "civility" and "decorum" and "working across the aisle."
It's fine to build coalition where there is common cause, say, infrastructure, or improving the lives of veterans, etc. But danger comes when people get suckered into conservative ideas like war or tax cuts for the rich or the slashing of social safety nets.
With the social unrest in Iran, Bill Kristol gets to beat his favorite drum, the War in the Middle East drum. In this clip, Bill Kristol gets heated when National Iranian American Council president Trita Parsi questioned how much Kristol really cares about Iranians. Parsi plainly mentions Kristol's history of advocating for war against the Iranians but is cut off by MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle who defends Kristol's past, saying he never advocated for such things.
Check out the clip below, and be on the lookout for moments where these conservative "Never Trump" people try to draw you into their brand of plain criminal conservative.
