Big monied donors are allegedly telling their candidates, especially Marco Rubio, to take Trump out during the debates Thursday night. This is according to an article in Politico.
The high-powered donors, who fund both Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush, are comprised of Wall Street and business interests who believe Trump will be volatile and “unmanageable.”
He is “unmanageable” by Wall Street and business interests, he’s made that clear. He finances his own campaign and has stood up to everyone and refused to apologize.
Aside from the fact that they support Clinton and Bush interchangeably, they might have ulterior motives – they won’t ever be able to control Trump. Just a thought.
Rubio, in particular, was told to take Trump out to regain momentum, but that’s not the answer for Rubio. He damaged his momentum with the gang of eight immigration bill.
Another Politico story announced that Fox has a secret plan if Trump goes out of control.
“We have a plan, but we’re not going to share it with you,” Kelly told Politico.
Baier also assured Politico that Trump will be treated exactly the same as any other candidate.
“Everybody is going to know all the rules going in; there is going to be a sound at the end of their time — it won’t be a pleasant sound,” Baier said.
“Are we thinking about different scenarios? Sure,” he said. “Our job is to make sure everybody plays by the rules.”
Fox hosts will probably be the ones to “control” Trump because candidates attacking Trump doesn’t work. Rick Perry is a perfect example. When Trump was done with him, Perry was stupid and incompetent on managing the border. I’m not saying I agree, I’m just saying that’s what happened.
Republicans and Democrats think that Donald Trump and his followers are crazy people who need to be controlled.
Another Politico article out today has Jeb Bush calling Trump a whole host of names as if Jeb is one to talk.
“Seriously, what’s this guy’s problem?” he asked one party donor he ran into recently, according to accounts provided by several sources close to Bush—and he went on to describe the publicity-seeking real estate developer now surging in public polls far ahead of Bush and all the 15 others in the Republican field as “a buffoon,” “clown” and “asshole.”
Maybe Bush is trying to clean up his image.
The New York Daily News has an article out claiming that Bill Clinton spoke with Trump in the weeks before the campaign kick off to tell him to get more involved in Republican politics. They posted a 2008 photo with Trump, Clinton, Giuliani, and Bloomberg to make it seem as if they are good friends but they had to go back to 2008 for the photo.
Why would anyone listen to anything that comes from the Clintons, though Hillary is denying Bill urged him to run for office.
It’s not only the Daily News, it’s a number of talking heads and media outlets spreading this “leak” from the Clinton campaign. The Gawker, WaPo, Talking Points Memo, liberal outlets all are insinuating Trump is a shill.
Trump isn’t dangerous because he’s a clown, he’s dangerous because he might have something to say that people want to hear and he’s not manageable as they believe.
As “unthinkable” as it is, Trump could win this thing and that’s why Republicans need to take him out tonight but they are probably underestimating how intelligent he is – to their detriment. A far better approach would be for them to toughen up, say some daring things the American people want to hear and forget to run it by their consultants.
