With less than a week to go before the Presidential election, Libertarian Vice-Presidential nominee has gone rogue and defended Hillary Clinton’s recent email controversy by calling her a person of high moral character.
Rachel Maddow, smelling blood, mused that “The Libertarian Party hasn’t treated you great if they’re putting out statements that you disagree with under your own name….I can’t imagine that your loyalty to them is stronger than your fear of Trump as a president,” and asked Weld what he would really counsel voters in swing states to do. His response?
“Well, I’m here vouching for Mrs. Clinton, and I think it’s high time somebody did. I’m doing it based on my personal experience with her, and I think that she deserves to have people vouch for her other than members of the Democratic National Committee.” Watch it here:
Typically this is the time period of an election where candidates are trying anything to discredit their opponent and push more votes their way. It seems like Weld is doing quite the opposite unless his strategy here is to gain Clinton voters by praising her.
