Who would have ever believed that so many big names in the Republican Party would publicly pledge to vote for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election? All throughout the primaries and the caucuses, the Republican establishment expressed tremendous disdain for Donald Trump, but they were unable to derail his march to the nomination. Now that we have reached the general election, some of the biggest names in the GOP are actually taking the unprecedented step of crossing over to the other side and are publicly announcing their support for Hillary Clinton. This shows that many of these individuals were only “Republicans in name only” to begin with, and it also demonstrates the lengths that the elite are willing to go to in order to keep Donald Trump out of the White House.
One of the latest big Republican names to publicly support Hillary Clinton is Sally Bradshaw. CNN is describing her as “Jeb Bush’s top adviser”, and she has gone so far as to completely remove herself from the Republican Party because of Donald Trump…
Jeb Bush’s top adviser, Sally Bradshaw, has left the Republican Party to become an independent, and says if the presidential race in Florida is close, she’ll vote for Hillary Clinton.
Bradshaw, who’s been close to the former Florida governor for decades and was senior adviser to his 2016 campaign, officially switched her registration to unaffiliated. She told CNN’s Jamie Gangel in an email interview that the GOP is “at a crossroads and have nominated a total narcissist — a misogynist — a bigot.”
“This is a time when country has to take priority over political parties. Donald Trump cannot be elected president,” Bradshaw said.
Bradshaw has been working for the Bushes ever since the 1988 presidential campaign, and she never would have made such a bold move without the approval of the Bushes.
Needless to say, the Bushes absolutely hate Trump, and they have a vested interest in seeing him lose the election. There are some that believe that Jeb Bush is already lining up for another run in 2020, and Donald Trump has to lose in order for that to be possible.
In addition to Sally Bradshaw, another prominent friend of the Bush family has also recently announced that he is going to be voting for Hillary Clinton. Former U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson was at the center of the storm during the financial crisis of 2008, and not too long ago he announced his intentions in the Washington Post…
“When it comes to the presidency, I will not vote for Donald Trump,” Paulson wrote in The Washington Post last week. “I will not cast a write-in vote. I’ll be voting for Hillary Clinton, with the hope that she can bring Americans together to do the things necessary to strengthen our economy, our environment and our place in the world. To my Republican friends: I know I’m not alone.”
Does Henry Paulson actually believe that Hillary Clinton can “bring Americans together to do the things necessary to strengthen our economy, our environment and our place in the world”?
I find that difficult to believe.
But apparently he intends to try to persuade as many of his fellow Republicans as possible to vote for Hillary Clinton, and a whole bunch of other establishment Republicans have already lined up behind her.
These are just some of the big Republican names that the Washington Post says have already committed to voting for Hillary Clinton…

House Republican Backs Hillary Clinton, Calling Donald Trump ‘Unfit to Serve’
Representative Richard Hanna, Republican of New York, broke ranks with his party to endorse Hillary Clinton for president on Tuesday, denouncing Donald J. Trump’s attacks on the Muslim parents of a soldier killed in Iraq and calling Mr. Trump “unfit to serve.”
Mr. Hanna has long said he would not support Mr. Trump in the general election. By throwing his support to Mrs. Clinton, he becomes the first Republican member of Congress to go beyond disavowing Mr. Trump, and join forces with the Democrats against him.
Charlie Dent on not voting for Trump: He's crossed 'a bridge too far'
– U.S. Rep. Charlie Dent, who has been among the most critical GOP voices in Congress regarding Donald Trump's candidacy, has joined a small but growing group of Republican elected officials who won't be voting for their party's presidential nominee.
The Allentown legislator said Trump's controversial comments have become "too much" for him to support the Republican atop the general-election ticket, referencing remarks directed at Muslims, Mexicans, veterans, the family members of soldiers killed in action, as well as fellow Republicans.
"It's a bridge too far," Dent told The Morning Call on Wednesday, regarding Trump's tone and pattern of behavior.
Dent also won't be voting for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton,
One of the rino idiots that is illustrated in the Dictionary next to definition thereof.
This silly bastard just came out from behind his wall of deceit, he like the others that have closet Dems have finally shown their true colors they are nothing but republicrats they are so afraid that that Trump will win and cut out their money rackets and they will not be able to steal from the American people and they just have to work for a living
Idiots to the 28th power! Anyone who supports hyena hitlery is supporting the finally of total ghettoass destruction of the USA! Yea, Dent has a dent in his empty skull! The gov is tyrannical, it has ABSOLUTE ZERO CREDIBILITY! "fallacycheck.org" is a propaganda machine of the dc regime! Trump is right as rain, all he needs to do is to present the truth, hitlery and insane/hussian oblamea are evil, and say nothing but lies. Choices here: choose life, or choose death. oblamea is a muss slime bitch whore, hates "nonblacks" hates the Constitution, hates and loathes the USA!. Unvetted refugees carrying bedbugs, and diseases and viruses, no wonder so many people are getting sick!
Everyone of them is a traitor to the United States. They all need to be jailed along with killery rotten klingon. The Republican Party needs to kick all of them out; they can go jerkoff some place else.
Trump is messing up their sandbox. The establishment politicians from BOTH parties are frightened that Trump will make changes that will lead our country back to our Constitution as our guide for government. These desperate traitors will lose their cash cow. We especially need to get rid of people like Jeb, Cruz, Kasich, Fiorina, and any others who said they would support the republican nominee..and since they lost, don't have the integrity to live up to their agreement.
There would be no Trump or anti establish "swells" Repub if they had not made it so clear that they do not have anything but contempt for the unwashed or otherwise known as the voters who got them the House and Senate. We got them the H and S and what did we get.... Repubs in name only. Put thru every Obumo/Dem agenda. One deal the country was against got McConnell $11Million, Boehner $7 Million and Ryan$4 million. What did the Dems reap. HOW MANY IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT HAVE THERE BEEN BILLIONS$$$$$$$ DELIVERED SOMEWHERE TO SOMEONE THAT IS NOT A FRIEND OF THE USA>
