Adelson Happy With Pence Pick

The Guardian reports:

[M]ultibillionaire Sheldon Adelson, who has indicated he would be willing to put as much as $100m into efforts to help Trump and who pushed to have his longtime close political ally Newt Gingrich named as Trump’s No2, is said by close friends to like Pence quite a lot because like Adelson he’s a fervent and hawkish supporter of Israel. Adelson’s affection for Pence was underscored when the Republican Jewish Coalition, a conservative pro-Israel advocacy group that Adelson has long been the leading financier of, quickly put out a statement on Friday hailing Pence’s addition to the ticket and calling him a “critical leader and important voice regarding Israel” both as Indiana’s governor and during several terms he served in the House as an Indiana congressman.

  1. Looking forward to the day Adelson dies. Of natural causes of course.
    In fact, I can't wait till all the old guard dies. And look at them, all of them are pretty dang old, so, say in the next 10 years, the Adelsons, Koch's, Soro's, McCains, Kissingers, and so on, will be worm food. What a great time it will be then. Heck, looking at Krystol, that fat ass may be pushing daisies soon too.
    Won't be any tears shed in my house when it happens.
