Yes, PJ O’Rourke Endorsed Hillary Clinton Today
Well, here’s a bit of news that really did surprise me today; on NPR’s show Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! conservative writer PJ O’Rourke actually said he’s going to vote for Hillary Clinton.
I hope you were sitting down when you read that, because it’s true. Here’s the audio. The section in question starts at about 3:16.
PJ O’Rourke: Well, Peter, I have a little announcement to make. Yeah, I have a little announcement to make.
I mean, my whole purpose in life basically is to offend everyone who listens to NPR, OK? No matter what position they take on anything, like, I’m on the other side of it, you know.
I’m votin’ for Hillary.
I am endorsing Hillary. And all her lies and all her empty promises. I am endorsing Hillary. The second worst thing that could happen to this country. But she’s way behind in second place, you know? She’s wrong about absolutely everything — but she’s wrong within normal parameters!
Tom Bodett: That is a ringing endorsement! …
O’Rourke: I mean, this man just can’t be president of the US. I mean, they got this button, it’s in a briefcase, he’s gonna find it.
