"SNIP....

Steve Schmidt, who is advising former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz on an independent presidential bid, abruptly walked off his own podcast when co-host Adam Levine pressed him on how Schultz could actually get the 270 electoral votes he needed to win, the Daily Beast reports.

SCHMIDT: This is bullshit. I’m not doing this.

LEVINE: Steve, you’ve got to answer the questions.

SCHMIDT: I’m not.

And with that, Schmidt slammed down his headset and abruptly ended the interview.

“He threatened legal action against the studio if the interview airs, according to a source involved in the discussion. When his legal threat failed, he offered to buy the recording… The studio refused.”

.....SNIP"

2. I wonder what is going on with him.

He is behaving as if he is having issues that have nothing to do with politics. Or maybe this Schultz thing is costing him friends.

3. He is a man with no party. Looks like he put his eggs in one basket.

6. He is probably realizing

that taking on this Schultz job is going to fuck up his career for good. MSNBC already fired him.
