Fox News regular panelist Jonathan Hoenig is about as conservative as they come. But he announced yesterday that he’d vote for Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders over Donald Trump – because either Democrat would be better for the economy than Trump.
In a discussion about the GOP civil war, Hoenig revealed just how much he detests Trump:
HOENIG: I think Trump would be inexorably worse than Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders in the presidency, if you care about capitalism and the future of this country.
…Donald Trump - I know he's supposed to be representing capitalism, free markets - a lot of people cannot get behind someone who advocates for tariffs or banning journalists from their events.
HOST ERIC BOLLING (quickly interrupting): Wait, wait, wait but answer the - the question was, if [Trump] doesn't get quite to 1237 [delegates], and here it is, 1236, you're OK to contest that convention?
HOENIG: Eric, I'll be voting for Bernie or Hillary if Trump's the nominee, so absolutely.
Also in this segment, Bolling either reversed course or disproved a report that Michelle Fields had lost her place on the show as a result of her filing assault charges against Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. At the beginning of the show, Bolling announced, “Michelle Fields isn't here today, but we look forward to having her back on soon."
