Leave it to Donald Trump. Whether you love the guy or hate the guy, you have to admit, he’s a master of manipulation. Last week when the GOP was holding their convention, the biggest controversy was Ted Cruz being booed for not endorsing Trump. This week, Trump himself has interjected himself into the Democrats’ convention and actually stole Day 3 thunder!
With one of the most outlandish comments made in the campaign, the Clinton campaign accused Russia of supplying the damaging DNC emails that were hacked just prior to the convention. Saying that Vladimir Putin wants Trump to be president because he’d be easier to push around is one thing. Proving it? Well, that’s something way out there in the parking lot beyond left field. What made Day 3 so “Trumpesque” was the fact Trump held a news conference asking Russia to go after the 30,000 missing emails.
Hillary’s people immediately pounced, saying it was beneath contempt that a GOP candidate for president would ask a foreign power to commit espionage against a political opponent, and it damaged the national security of the United States. BUT WAIT A MINUTE! I thought the 30,000 emails Hillary deleted were PERSONAL emails about Chelsea’s wedding, and yoga routines. What in hell does that have to do with national security?
It was an obvious trap Trump laid, and the Clinton camp gladly jumped right in. Either those emails were private and personal and had to do with a wedding and yoga, in which case, it had NOTHING to do with national security (meaning the Clintons were wrong with their accusation), or they WEREN’T personal, and WERE work related meaning that Hillary lied to everybody (would she do that?) and actually could be charged with obstruction of justice. Either way you look at it, Hillary’s people are a bunch of idiots for playing right into Donald Trump’s hands on this one!
And so goes the Democrats’ convention. So worried are they that the Bernie Sanders supporters are going to shout “Lock Her Up” during her speech tonight, they over-look the obvious trap that was laid for them. Such idiots.
This on a day when the Real Clear Politics average of polls puts Trump on top of Clinton for the first time. Yes, several polls (including the uber-left leaning CNN poll) have Trump up big…as much as 7 points, but the RCP average of polls takes a while to catch up. It appears Hillary isn’t getting much upside support at her convention and has a LONG way to go before she gets some traction. Gee…who saw that coming?
Don’t worry Democrats…the liberal media is trying their damndest to make sure that this is Hillary’s election. I really doubt they are able to fool the American people this time though.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
