I’m not joking when I say this: I am legit excited to see what sort of accusations he makes at his rallies during the last week of the campaign, especially if he’s far enough behind that he feels he has nothing to lose. The odds that he brings up Obama’s birth certificate again despite having made a show of accepting O’s American birthplace a few weeks ago can’t be worse than 50/50. If he’s going down, he’s going down making his fans happy, playing the old hits.
Plus, it’ll be a great warm-up for Trump News next year.
“Even the polls are crooked,” he said at a Monday night rally, expressing disbelief that he is losing to Clinton in Pennsylvania. “Look, we’re in a rigged system.”…
On Tuesday when Bill O’Reilly told him that “you’re behind with women,” Trump responded, “I’m not sure I believe it. I’m not sure I believe it.”
He’s not sure he’s behind with women after he got caught talking about … grabbing women by the p***y?
The Republican presidential nominee told supporters during a rally in Ocala, Florida, that the terrorist network [ISIS] is “hoping and praying” for a Clinton presidency.
“Because they’ll take over not only that part of the world, they’ll take over this country, they’ll take over this part of the world,” Trump said. “Believe me. They are hoping. They are hoping.”
I would have stuck with the Supreme Court as my go-to “Clinton apocalypse scenario” anecdote since it has the virtue of being true, but it’s perfectly defensible of him to say that she’d be better for ISIS. Not only is turnabout fair play, she’s the more eager interventionist of the two — and jihadis love turning American interventions into training/propaganda opportunities. Claiming that ISIS might take over this part of the world is, shall we say, not as defensible, especially at a moment when they’re losing the territory they already have. But if he’s looking for an argument that electing Hillary would mean the literal end of the United States, why not follow the lead of his buddies in the Kremlin by warning that Russia will nuke us during Clinton’s presidency? Putin’s already tried gaming the election through less belligerent means, like hacking. Now, with Trump’s situation desperate, he might as well move to overt threats.
Here he is today wondering what sort of “sinister deal” might have been struck between Paul Ryan and Hillary to inspire such disloyalty by Ryan towards his own nominee. He promises to figure it out. Odds that “globalism” factors into it: High. The second clip is Obama goofing on an Alex Jones soundbite this week in which Jones suggested he and Clinton might be actual demons. Maybe that’s what the final week of the campaign will be spent on.
