Dan Bongino was trusted to guard the president of the United States. He was a top-ranked Secret Service agent and studied psychology as part of his preparation for the job.
Now he’s running as a Republican to be a congressman. And he’s got a simple question for members of the GOP who are supporting Hillary Clinton.
Are you crazy?
Bongino unleashed on Hillary-supporting Republicans in a video which has garnered well over 800,000 views on WND’s Facebook account.
Hundreds of thousands have also viewed it at other sites. Bongino argued the stakes are too high for any Republican to be supporting Hillary Rodham Clinton.
“Understand this … by supporting Hillary you are actively contributing to the destruction of the greatest country on Earth,” he thundered. “This is not a theoretical exercise. You are destroying your kids’ economy. You are destroying your kids’ health care system. You are destroying your kids’ education system. You are destroying any semblance of reality in our court system. You’re destroying any sense of getting the government out of your life through this massive overgrowth of government bureaucracy. And you’re entrenching seven years of Barack Obama.
“You. In real time, you’re doing that.”
Bongino, who during his time in the Secret Service protected Barack Obama, is the author of the New York Times bestseller “Life Inside The Bubble: Why A Top-Ranked Secret Service Agent Walked Away From It All.”
He’s also running for Congress as a Republican in Florida’s 19th Congressional District.
Bongino specifically condemned Bret Stephens, the deputy editorial page editor for the Wall Street Journal, who has been arguing for months Republican voters should be taught a “lesson” by what he hopes is a Trump defeat.
“Bret Stephens at the Wall Street Journal said at least Mrs. Clinton isn’t a sociopath,” Bongino charged. “Listen, I was a graduate student in psychology. I encourage you strongly to look up the definition of a sociopath. Maybe you’ll re-evaluate that stance.”
The former Secret Service officer condemned those who believe the 2016 election is simply some abstract question of ideology.
“What is this, some bizarre theoretical exercise to you where you think you’re making some kind of a point by supporting Hillary Clinton?” he asked. “What’s your point? ‘I hate America and I want to destroy it?’”
The most closely guarded secrets from the center of American power, revealed for the first time. A former top ranked Secret Service agent reveals what’s REALLY going on in the White House. Don’t miss the shocking true story from Dan Bongino “Life Inside The Bubble,” available now in the WND Superstore.
A number of Republicans have come out in support of Hillary Clinton in recent weeks. Lezlee Westine, a former aide of George W. Bush, announced her support for Hillary Clinton on Monday.
Former GOP governor of Michigan William Milliken also announced he was backing Clinton.
Richard Armitage, Henry Paulson and Brent Scowcroft, all of whom served in the second Bush administration, declared they were supporting Clinton at the end of July.
However, Donald Trump scored a surprise endorsement on Monday from George P. Bush, the son of Jeb Bush. The Texas land commissioner and scion of the Bush political dynasty said he understood the primary was divisive but it is time for Republicans to unite.
“You get back up and you help the man that won, and you make sure that we stop Hillary Clinton,” he said.
Bongino made the same case. He said he does not support everything Donald Trump has said and done and praised what he called the Republican and conservative tradition of independence.
“We’re not automatons,” he joked. “We don’t worship the golden calf or any candidate.”
But Bongino said supporting Hillary is positively immoral.
“Listen, I get it, there’s a lot of bitterness and ill-will over what happened in the Republican primary, I totally understand it,” he admitted. “I’m not asking anyone to forfeit their principles or do anything they don’t want to do. But there are other choices out there too! Supporting Hillary is not being ‘never Trump’ or whatever you want to call it. Supporting Hillary is a totally different level of insanity and depravity.
“I saw the inner circle of the Clinton campaign when I was a Secret Service agent back in the day. You are out of your mind if you vote for this woman. She will do anything. She will say anything. You are talking about a woman who knew that her email server had been compromised, that people were getting access to the world’s most sensitive information. She knew this and continued to trade in our deepest, darkest secrets over the Internet. And you’re going to support her? Again, are you insane?”
Bongino reframed the question of “conscience” some Republicans are using as an excuse not to support Donald Trump. He said the real question is whether someone with the character of Hillary Clinton can be commander-in-chief.
“You’re talking about a woman, again, who lied to the faces of the families of the patriots that died in Benghazi,” he thundered. “Looked them in the eye and knowingly lied. And you’re going to support this woman. What does that say about you?”
