Paul Begala willing to ‘pay any price’ to ensure defeat of Trump

CNN commentator Paul Begala said Monday night he’d “pay any price” to ensure that a Democratic candidate beat President Donald Trump in next year’s election.

Discussing the launch of former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign, Begala began by telling anchor Chris Cuomo that the 2020 election will mark the first time that he does not have a candidate that he supported during the Democratic primary.

“This is what I’m looking for: I’m a JFK Democrat. I will pay any price, bear any burden, support any friend, oppose any foe to ensure the defeat of Donald J. Trump,” the former Clinton advisor elaborated. “You could be for Medicare-For-All or not, you could shoot my dog and if I think you can beat Trump, I’m gonna be for you.”

“Well, that’s very mainstream of you,” Cuomo reacted.

CNN pundit Ana Navarro, who described herself as a “disenfranchised Republican” expressed her excitement for Biden’s candidacy, saying that she’s “biased” for knowing the former senator-turned-VP and praising how he has “never changed.”

Whoops! We couldn’t access this Tweet.

“Enough with the shooting of the dogs!” Cuomo told the panel. “It’s the only thing all Americans care about.”

Begala sparked controversy earlier this year when he referred to top White House advisors Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner as “cockroaches.”
