Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder is floating the notion that he could be a candidate for President in 2020.
No, I’m not kidding. Check it out.
Think of this whackadoodle idea as a Presidential bid by someone who is all Obama agenda–Iranian Nuke Deal warts and all, Social Justice Warrior issues galore–all of it, that whole eight years of racial unrest, international weasel-ism, and glamorous star studded parties at the White House, without the Obama charm. Such as it was.
Remember Fast and Furious? If Eric Holder runs you will hear a lot more about it.
Remember Obama’s global apology tour? Ready for Part Deux?
Holder is positioning himself to be leader of the Trump Resistance, that parade of masked, black clad, cudgel wielding “progressives” looking for a pro-Trump skull to cave in.
“Up to now, I have been more behind-the-scenes,” Holder told Yahoo News about his thinking. “But that’s about to change. I have a certain status as the former attorney general. A certain familiarity as the first African-American attorney general. There’s a justified perception that I’m close to President Obama.”
Well then, if it’s “a justified perception”, damn well do not complain when that is held against you, Mr. Holder.
Neither Holder, nor his patron former President Obama, seem to have fully understood the damage they did to the Democrat Party. After losing a thousand legislative seats and governorships and both houses of Congress, these guys think they are going to be welcomed back with acclamation. And they might very well get that reception from Democrats, especially the hard core.
But please, Mr. Holder, run. Run. Run.
Bring Valerie Jarrett and the former President with you on the campaign trail.
All of you were so popular with the American public you (collectively) managed to do what most people thought was impossible.
You got Donald Trump elected President.
Go ahead. Give it another shot. Make things easy for Trump voters.
