Here’s a heartwarming story about a little billionaire engine that could. Politico is reporting that billionaire GOP donor Mike Fernandez is so unhappy with how the Republican Party is acting these days that he is finished giving money until they get their act together.
“All the Republicans who hide behind the flag and hide behind the church, they don’t have the f------ balls to do what it takes,” Fernandez told POLITICO Florida in a telephone interview on Thursday.
Fernandez, a Miami-area resident, has long been a political rainmaker and donor, spending $3.5 million in ads against Trump in 2016 alone. He has, however, grown disenchanted with the direction of political leaders at both the state and federal level. He left the GOP due to Trump.
I can’t blame him for being angry. But, Mr. Fernandez, how do you really feel?
He called Trump an “abortion of a human being,” and hammered the New York developer in the harshest terms possible.
“If I was the doctor and knew what that baby would do, I’d have made sure it never would have seen the light of day,” he said of the president.
He also said that Florida’s Gov. Rick Scott “is emotionless” and only cares about “self-advancement.” Listen, being a billionaire already makes you a pretty suspect human being. Being a Republican billionaire donor normally makes you one of the heads of the Republican Party. Being against Donald Trump and Rick Scott means you are not entirely insane.
