Governor Bill Weld is Gary Johnson's running mate on the Libertarian ticket.

He just issued a statement on their official campaign website. It reads, in part:

I have come to believe that Donald Trump, if elected President of the United States, would not be able to stand up to this pressure and this criticism without becoming unhinged and unable to perform competently the duties of his office.

A serious candidate for the Presidency of the United States must be stable, and Donald Trump is not stable.

Mr. Trump has demonstrated an inability to handle criticism or blame well. His first instinct is to lash out at others. When challenged, he often responds as a child might. He makes a sour face, he calls people by insulting names, he waves his arms, he impatiently interrupts. Most families would not allow their children to remain at the dinner table if they behaved as Mr. Trump does. He has not exhibited the self-control, the discipline, or the emotional depth necessary to function credibly as a President of the United States.

Donald Trump should not, cannot, and must not be elected President of the United States.

Welp, that couldn't be any clearer.

I imagine he might not even vote for himself.
