BREAKING: Top Republican Reverses Course & DUMPS TRUMP On Election Day, Donald FURIOUS

Ari Fleischer, former White House press secretary for George W. Bush, scorned Donald Trump when he first threw his hat in the ring. In May, however, as it grew frighteningly apparent that the Orange Revolution would win the GOP nomination, Fleischer began to come around. He is a Republican, after all.

On Friday before the election, Ari Fleischer got cold feet. “Party discipline” flew out the window as he realized there was no way he could ever vote for Donald Trump. In an op-ed for The Washington Post he wrote that although he’s the kind of “white, college-educated male” and married man who would “typically vote Republican for president,” he’s “struggling with how to vote.”

Ari Fleischer explained why he chose to support Mein Trumpf when so many others who served in George W. Bush’s administration refused.

‘I’m one of the few people from the Bush administration who stepped forward to support Trump. Even as an establishment Republican, I know Washington needs a good shakeup now and then. After all, a lot of what the experts and insiders recommend hasn’t worked out lately. Millions of working Americans are struggling to make ends meet, economic growth is weak, the Islamic State hasn’t been destroyed, and U.S. influence is declining.’

Ari Fleischer even gave Donald Trump a pass on his being “offensive, boorish, and simplistic.” Republicans like Ari Fleischer don’t like to say words like “racist,” “misogynist,” “hateful” and “bigoted,” even when the person those words apply to are also hateful towards the groups of which they are a part. After all, there’s no one a right-winger hates more than a victim.

‘I knew Trump was too often offensive, boorish and simplistic. He doesn’t have a good grasp of policy, but he did spend a career in the business sector.’

Instead, he said he’d “hold his nose” and vote for Donald Trump to keep the U.S. Supreme Court from letting women exercise all that “freedom” and “choice” Republicans keep going on about.

Now, though, Ari Fleischer’s had a change of heart. It’s not Donald Trump’s pussy-grabbing, casual cruelty, and hatefulness towards anyone who isn’t a white, Christian male that gave Ari Fleischer pause. It was his lack of discipline.

‘Then Trump lost control of himself and his message. He veered recklessly off track, attacking an American judge for his Mexican heritage, criticizing a war hero’s family, questioning the legitimacy of the election and otherwise raising questions about his judgment.’

Like so many other Republicans, Ari Fleischer would rather have a loose cannon like Donald Trump in the White House than a woman who will appoint Supreme Court justices who support equal rights for women instead of forcing them to bear children against their will. Instead of faulting Trump’s hate, anger, and ignorance, he faults Trump’s inability to disguise his hate, anger, and ignorance.

At this point, he won’t vote for Donald Trump, but he won’t vote for Hillary Clinton either.

‘On Tuesday, if someone puts a gun to my head and tells me to make a choice, I’ll say “shoot.”’

That’s right. Donald Trump is horrible, but Hillary Clinton’s emails are so equally horrible, and he’d rather get shot dead than vote for either of them. Pity the fool who gets stuck in line behind Ari Fleischer to cast their vote.

What Ari Fleisher doesn’t mention is the increasingly apparent anti-Semitism in Donald Trump’s campaign. They might have a lot to do with his change of heart, because Fleischer just so happens to be one of those Jews so many of Mein Trumpf’s anti-Semitic fans accuse of taking over world banking and the media.

Back in May, when he reluctantly endorsed Mein Trumpf, he swiftly discovered that for many of his fellow Jewish conservatives, a (definitely not Kosher) pig like Donald Trump is trayfe. The Jewish Daily Forward noted that a furious Jennifer Rubin slammed him and said that if the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) backs Donald Trump, they’re “dead to me.”

Noam Neusner, a former speechwriter for Mitt Romney and other top Republicans also weighed in.

Never has choosing between the clichéd “lesser of two evils” been more real. Yet Ari Fleischer’s still weaseling out of deciding whether he really – beyond partisan considerations – believes Hillary Clinton is seriously more evil than Donald Trump by taking the easy way out.

‘I will vote for Republicans up and down the ballot. But when it comes to the presidency, I’m going to leave my ballot blank.’
