This guy could use a little more self-awareness.
Retiring lawmaker Adam Kinzinger told Huffington Post this week that he may take on President Trump in the 2014 primary.
Let’s hope so.
Could he even make it to the stage? And didn’t we already have one anti-Trump former Congressman from Illinois pull this stunt?
It’s not even original.
Cassandra Fairbanks at TimCast reported:
A reporter from the HuffPost asked Kinzinger if he wants to run against Trump.
“I would love it. I really would,” Kinzinger said, “his eyes instantly widening,” according to the reporter.
“Even if he crushed me, like in a primary, to be able to stand up and call out the garbage is just a necessary thing, regardless of who it is. … I think it’d be fun,” Kinzinger added.
Though he thinks it would be “fun,” Kinzinger claims that he is not currently planning a run — but will not rule it out.
“I’ll make a decision when we get there, if there’s a need and a desire. It’s truly not anything I’m planning right now, but I’m not going to rule it out.”
The Illinois representative said that while he wants to remain in politics, he no longer wants to be in Congress.
