Hedge Fund Manager Marc Lasry Can’t Believe The Mouth-Breathers Running For President

Jeb Bush, fine. Everyone else: JFC.

Don’t get Marc Lasry wrong: He very much wants to see Hillary Clinton taking the oath of office in about 20 months. Hell, he would have liked to see her do so six-and-a-half years ago. After all, he helped make her husband president and gave Chelsea a job as a hedge-fund analyst. And if he can’t have Hil, Martin O’Malley or Joe Biden would probably do (Bernie Sanders, less so).

That said, he’s gonna be honest here: We could do worse than Jeb Bush. Way worse. Like, anyone else seeking the G.O.P. nod worse.

“He would be reasonable, he’d be a good president,” Lasry said in an interview Tuesday with Mark Halperin and John Heilemann on Bloomberg Television’s “With All Due Respect.” “I think I would look at it very differently with some of the other candidates.”
