This story below in the NY Daily News and other like it are being vehemently denied only at this moment by Bill Weld. There is kind of a waiting–a hopeful waiting–for these two Libertarians to endorse HRC, at least from certain quarters.
The same day Johnson admitted he’s not keeping up with world affairs, Weld told The Boston Globe Trump is his only priority from now until November 8.
“I think Mr. Trump’s proposals in the foreign policy area, including nuclear proliferation, tariffs, and free trade, would be so hurtful, domestically and in the world, that he has my full attention,” Weld said Tuesday.
He added, “I have had in mind all along trying to get the Donald into third place, and with some tugging and hauling, we might get there.”

The Globe said Weld also hinted that he might abandon the Libertarian Party altogether, although he said he’s “certainly not going to drop them this year.”
Still, he said his priority after the election could be working with Republicans like Mitt Romney to rebuild the GOP.
When Weld, a former Republican governor of Massachusetts, joined Johnson on the Libertarian ticket, he said he would be a Libertarian for life and fight to make sure his running mate became the next President of the United States.
But Weld apparenrly wised up after Johnson’s month of stunning gaffes, with the third-party contender consistently failing to know anything about current events or foreign affairs. When Johnson couldn’t name a single world leader he admired during an MSNBC town hall, Weld stepped in as his hype man, reminding him of a couple names.

Johnson spent his Tuesday morning arguing on national TV that his ignorance about the world could be a virtue, because it would prevent him from sending soldiers to dangerous countries.
Weld last week told MSNBC he’s “not sure anybody is more qualified than Hillary Clinton to be president of the United States.”Contact with post author
