“Donald Trump has clipped through choppy political waters in 2015, charting his own course for the White House, stoking outrage from the establishment of the Republican Party and the media, crushing his opponents in the polls (and making frequent note of it) and delighting in the downfalls of those who deigned strike at him.
Since his June 16 announcement, political prognosticators, pundits and yes, even journalists have speculated that Trump would not last. And each time they did, the blustery Manhattan mogul continued to pick up steam, in spite of, and perhaps because of that speculation …”
Mexicans are rapists and criminals. John McCain was captured. Megyn Kelly bleeding out of her vagina. Carly Fiorina’s face. Muslims should be banned from the US. Imagine how boring the Republican primary would have been without Trump.
My personal favorite is this Rick Wilson article in Politico from July 22:
“Greetings, Donald Trump super fans. I am a member of the GOP establishment. I’m writing to tell you that, no matter how much you wish it otherwise, the Donald Trump candidacy is almost over …
As a celebrity, Donald Trump knows that fame and ratings are fleeting. The hit show of one season can disappear in the next. I won’t make a “Donald, you’re fired” joke because it would be trite, but the ratings are coming in, and the odds are heavily against Trump making the schedule for next Fall.
The circus is almost over.
My advice to Trump fans?
Don’t be the last clown out of the tent.”
