Bill Kristol scoffed at proposing that “serious conservatives” support Neiden Tanden, Biden’s cabinet


Bill Kristol, Never Trumper, was ridiculed on Monday for claiming that “serious conservatives” would support far-left Neera Tanden, who adopted a cabinet-level position in the Biden government.

President-elect Joe Biden plans to appoint Tanden, president and CEO of the Center for American Progress, the Liberal Brain Trust, as director of the Office of Administration and Budget, a person familiar with the transition process, who was given anonymity to speak freely on internal deliberations. Kristol, who has gone from a prominent conservative to an anti-Trump expert, approved the selection on Twitter.

“Serious conservatives, responsible moderates and stubborn liberals want a hard-willed OMB leader. At OMB, the ill-considered projects of cabinet secretaries are destroyed, where programs are evaluated, where compromises are made. Neera Tanden is the right person for the job, ”Kristol tweeted.

Kristol was once an extremely influential conservative, but has drifted left in recent years and is an open critic of President Trump.

“The View” host Meghan McCain, who serves as the show’s symbolic conservative, blew up Kristol at the suggestion.

– Please do not insult me ​​and say as a serious conservative that I should support the leader of the hard left advocacy group for American Progress. It’s intellectually unfair and longing for you, Bill, McCain replied.

Maggie Haberman, a reporter for the New York Times wrote“If someone told you in 2014 that this tweet existed six years later, try processing the reaction.”
