David French, who mounted a third party presidential campaign for several days last week, appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe variety show this morning for some reason, and said the Trump campaign tried to menace his wife and spook him out of running.

According to French, a member of his wife’s family was contacted by someone who identified himself as a member of the Trump campaign, who relayed a message to “make sure that David knows [running against Trump] will be really, really bad for him.” French added that he was used to abuse from Trump supporters as a writer for the National Review, explaining that he’s been a target for Donald’s core demo of Bad White People because of his interracial family. And now, we say goodbye to David French.
