The British Brexit leader Nigel Farage recently spoke at a Donald Trump rally and offered some words of encouragement for attendees.
Real Clear Politics reported:
Former leader of the UK Independent Party Nigel Farage, credited for Brexit, addressed the audience at a Trump campaign rally in Jackson, Mississippi on Wednesday night. Farage left the UKIP after the United Kingdom voted to ‘leave’ the European Union.
“You can beat the pollsters, you can beat the commentators, you can beat Washington,” Farage said to cheers. “If you want change, you better get your walking boots on.”
“Anything is possible if enough decent people want to fight the establishment,” Farage said.
Farage also took a shot at President Barack Obama for campaigning against Brexit.
“The big card, the prime minister (David Cameron), decided to play in the referendum is he got a foreign visitor to come to London to talk to us. Yes, we were visited by one Barack Obama. And he talked down to us. He treated us as if we were nothing,” Farage said.
“I wouldn’t vote for Hillary Clinton if you paid me!” Farage jokingly said to the crowd.
“I wouldn’t vote for Hillary Clinton if she paid me!” Farage said to laughter.
Farage appeared on FOX Business with Jim Varney a few days later. Varney suggested that people might see him as meddling in the U.S. election the same way Obama inserted himself into the Brexit vote but Farage insisted he wasn’t telling people how to vote. He also suggested that if Hillary wins, nothing will ever change.
In response, Hillary Clinton has branded Farage an extremist.
The Independent reports:
Hillary Clinton attacks ‘extremist’ Nigel Farage over ‘rising tide of right-wing nationalism’
Hillary Clinton has launched a scathing attack on Nigel Farage, linking him to a “rising tide of hardline, right-wing nationalism” and accusing him of being a Vladimir Putin-style extremist.
Ms Clinton’s attack on the former leader of the UK Independence Party (Ukip) comes after he shared a platform with Donald Trump, the Republican candidate for US President, in Jacksonville, Mississippi, on Thursday.
Mr Farage, who was introduced as the man who orchestrated Brexit by Mr Trump, had said he would not vote for the Democratic presidential hopeful even if he was paid to do so.
But responding to his comments at a rally in Nevada, Ms Clinton accused the former Ukip chief of having “stoked anti-immigrant sentiments” during the European Union referendum campaign. Mr Farage was widely condemned at the time for appearing in front of a “Breaking Point” poster showing a vast queue of refugees stretching into the distance.
“Just yesterday one of Britain’s most prominent right-wing leaders, a man named Nigel Farage, who stoked anti-immigrant sentiments to win the referendum to have Britain leave the European Union, campaigned with Donald Trump in Mississippi,” Ms Clinton said.
But Farage is right. Hillary is the establishment candidate and represents a whole lot more of the same. Possibly worse.
