Jaxonpool News with Violent Crawley: Donald Trump this morning endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. The Republican nominee announced in a Tweet that he will be voting for the Democratic candidate in the November election and that he will do whatever he can to help her become the next president.
“Hillary is the best candidate, and that’s why I am supporting her,” he Tweeted. “She works hard, is well prepared, and has what it takes to lead this great nation.”
He insisted though that he is not dropping out of the race.
President Barack Obama and former presidents George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter all agreed that this is the most shocking thing a presidential candidate has ever said.
Political analysts and pundits speculated that this announcement was the work of Stephan Bannon, Trump’s new campaign chief and the chairman of Breitbart, an alt-right news outlet.
Through Bannon and Breitbart, the alt-right is now running the Trump campaign. The alt-right is alternatively known as a group of white supremacist nationalists. Among other things, they believe that the best way to challenge political correctness and defend first-amendment free-speech rights is to say out loud the most outrageous thing imaginable.
“Trump has succeeded,” said John McLaughlin, the conservative news commentator who passed away a little over a week ago. “He has said the most outrageous thing imaginable. A candidate for president endorsing the other candidate is profoundly upsetting. He could have dropped the F-bomb, used the N-word, admitted that he’s Putin’s lackey, or confessed that he worth nowhere near $10 billion, but no, he chose to make the most extreme statement that a candidate can possibly make.”
“This marks the end of political correctness!” said Ann Coulter. “Once again first amendment freedoms are secure!”
Trump subsequently Tweeted that he was just being sarcastic. “I didn’t really mean it. It was sarcasm.” Pundits from across the political spectrum began debating whether what he had said was sarcasm or just irony.
For a clarification regarding the meaning of irony, several turned to Alanis Morissette.
