A longtime speechwriter and top aide to Republican Sen. John McCain on Tuesday vowed support for Hillary Clinton if Donald Trump becomes the Republican presidential nominee, calling the GOP front-runner a “bats—t crazy narcissist.”
Mark Salter, who served as a senior adviser to McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign, wrote on Twitter: “[T]he GOP is going to nominate for President a guy who reads the National Enquirer and thinks it’s on the level. I’m with her.”
The tweet followed Mr. Trump’s floating of a tabloid report that Rafael Cruz, the father of Sen. Ted Cruz, was pictured with Lee Harvey Oswald shortly before the JFK assassination.
Mr. Salter wrote that while Mrs. Clinton “might” not make a good president, she at least isn’t “a conspiracy nut with mob ties.”
