Sometimes I wish Trump wouldn’t be so brutally honest. No, not in connection with his Twitter insults: love those! only wish they were stronger.
But like today, I heard him making remarks, and he said the person he’d least like to run against is Sanders. Because Sanders has actual followers.
Shhhhhh! He’s right about this, I’m afraid, and Sanders’ voters can be heard musing,”Everybody said Trump couldn’t win, either…”
Sanders appears to be winning NH as projected. We WANT the Dems to try to destroy him, like they did in 2016. We want a brokered convention, where Clinton is drafted as nominee, picks Buttigieg as VP, and Sanders runs as independent or as head of a new party. This scenario would guarantee at least a plurality for Trump.
The Don is, as always, the smartest man in the room. But in this instance I wish he’d be a bit stingier with his perceptiveness. Let him dissemble and say he dreads facing Biden in the debates (well, maybe even Dems wouldn’t be fooled by that; it’s so obvious Trump would wipe the floor with Uncle Joe) or that he thinks Buttigieg has real appeal! Because, so far, only Sanders is dangerous. He has a coterie of devotés who feel he was cheated last time, and who love him because: free stuff! The hard left and the gormless millennials make the basis for a pretty big coalition. And ironically, they’ve got Trump’s 2016 example to inspire them.
The Dems are too stupid to realize all this. Let’s KEEP it that way!
