Despite a coordinated media assault against him, attacks by the irrelevant bottom half of the 2016 GOP field and a phone call from RNC boss Reince Priebus, Donald Trump isn’t going away. If anything, the bombastic billionaire insurgent is growing stronger by the day and according to a recent poll is now leading the pack of Republican White House hopefuls. Trump has even begun to hint at the nightmare scenario of an independent run if he gets screwed over by the GOP power brokerswho are trying to sink him before he gets too much momentum.
Highly paid political consultants and the slugs in the lamestream media just don’t get it but the key to Trump’s early success is that Americans are fed up with politics as usual. The double whammy of two George W. Bush terms followed by the abomination of two more from Barack Obama have dragged this once great country to the edge of the abyss and the prospect of eight years of “Jeb!” or Hillary is just too much for people to take. What the Donald is really doing is sowing the seeds of a non-violent revolution against a corrupt entrenched pack of entitled swine. It would be far more satisfying to just start rolling out the guillotines but despite a dysfunctional electoral system it is still possible to change things using the ballot box but people need to get started soon.
Some great excerpts from the Washington Post’s interview with The Donald and the story entitled “Trump vows long campaign, won’t commit to backing GOP nominee”:
Donald Trump vowed Thursday to wage a hard-charging and lengthy presidential campaign, including filing his financial disclosures with the Federal Election Commission as early as next week, as unease continued to swirl throughout the Republican Party about his incendiary rhetoric on immigration.
In a wide-ranging, 30-minute interview with The Washington Post, the billionaire real-estate mogul and reality television star also said he has serious concerns about other GOP candidates and refused to commit to supporting the eventual nominee in the general election.
“So many people want to run as an independent, so many people,” Trump said. “I have been asked by — you have no idea, everybody wants me to do it.”
Pressed about whether he would back the Republican ticket if he fails to win the nomination himself, Trump left the door open for a third-party bid of his own. “I would have to see who the nominee is,” he said.
The trial balloon of Trump mounting a run outside of the GOP and the establishment favorite “Jeb!” is not as crazy an idea as it is being advertised as. While he will siphon off votes from prospective Republicans there is a huge amount of disgust and distaste for the already crowned Queen Hillary the Entitled and a strong independent would have a good amount of crossover appeal. This is what really scares the hell out of the vultures and racketeers who have hijacked our democracy.
Trump also addressed the phone call with Priebus in which the RNC boss asked him to tone down his rhetoric on illegal aliens. Despite the lack of adequate boarder control and with Mexico being a violent narco state that continues to send criminals and thugs into the U.S.A. the big corporations need illegals to suppress wages. Also from the Washington Post piece:
Trump’s comments came in a call to The Post to dispute some details reported Wednesday night about a private phone call with Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee.
Trump said that the Wednesday call with Priebus lasted between 10 and 15 minutes and was “congratulatory” with regard to Trump’s ascent in the polls. He said that, near the end of their discussion, Priebus asked him to speak in a more measured way about immigration.
“He started off saying, ‘Wow, you really hit a nerve,’ ” Trump said. “He said, ‘I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like this since I’ve been in politics.”
Trump added, “Then, in closing, he said, ‘You know, if it would be possible, maybe you could tone it down just a little bit, but you are who are you, and I know you have to do what you have to do.’ ”
Trump said the call from Priebus “was meant, in my opinion, to be a congratulatory call. . . . It wasn’t a lecturing-type call. He’s going to lecture me? Give me a break.”
Trump called Priebus “a very nice man,” but said he has “a lot of different constituents” in Republican ranks and suggested that the party chairman may have wanted to make it seem to others in the party that he had been “tougher” on the call than he was, in Trump’s view.
“He’s got [former Florida governor Jeb] Bush calling him,” Trump said. “And, believe me, Bush is watching. . . . It’s their worst nightmare. You understand that.”
I would imagine that the Bush operatives are practically begging Priebus to muzzle trump, the dynasty must be restored at all costs. But it is time to finally move beyond the Bush family which has passed the “sell by” date with most Americans who are sick of the same old horseshit. Trump also addressed the efforts to force him out of the first Republican debate in the story:
Turning to the first GOP primary debate, scheduled for Aug. 6 in Cleveland, Trump said he is planning to be onstage. Fox News is requiring that candidates file their financial disclosures with the FEC to qualify.
Asked whether he plans to meet that requirement, Trump said, “Of course I am.” He said he is entitled to two 45-day extensions with the FEC, but said he will not use them and plans to submit his paperwork in the coming days, perhaps next week.
“It’s extremely large,” Trump said, “but I think we’ll file it ahead of schedule.”
Trump has not begun to prepare for the debates, however. “I’m not a debater,” he said. “I don’t debate. I build buildings, and I grow jobs. These [other candidates] debate every [expletive] night of their life. That’s all they do. They talk.”
Trump suggested that Mitt Romney spent too much time preparing for debates as the 2012 Republican nominee.
“He became a frozen jellyfish,” Trump said. “He spent so much time in prep he couldn’t speak.”
Karl Rove may just have the Fred Sanford “big one” if Trump follows through and files his financial paperwork as he is vowing to do. It was only weeks ago that Rovedismissed Trump’s candidacy as not “serious” but quite frankly Turd Blossom isn’t looking like a genius very often as of late. Whoever had the brilliant idea of attacking Trump is only throwing him low hanging fastballs that he continues to crush into the upper deck.Follow VeronicaCoffin
