Donald Trump has found his roar back. It is the brass ring of political campaigns for losers. His mantra of “Corrupt Hillary” has been brainwashing his supporters for months. With the inept help of the Director of the FBI, he is now putting legs on the mantra.
When you read the actual letter the foolish director sent to congressional leaders you find that there is no accusation of wrong-doing against the Democratic Party candidate. That hardly stops Trump from piling on further vilification of his opponent. That is what losers do.
Trump has nothing substantive with which to go after his opponent but that does not concern him. He must have heard somewhere about the roar back that losers do at the end of a campaign to try to stem the tide for their opponent.
It has nothing to do with the polls. It is the few politicians that he listens to who are telling Trump that he cannot win. He has no election day team to pull his vote—and he is counting on people who do not normally vote.
Trump has already alienated the thinking Republicans. He has denounced their party’s leadership. He embarrassed the Republican Party at the three presidential debates—showing the world how unprepared he is to be Commander in Chief. He is a misogynist and a liar and a blow-hard. It would be giving the finger to the civilized world to put someone like him in the world’s most powerful office.
It is much too late for Hillary Clinton or her campaign team to do anything but fume about the FBI announcement. It is not about her. And Trump is using it as an excuse to escalate the lies he loves dishing out.
And the voting is already underway. Early voting is reported to be heavy. On November 8, it will be all over except the counting.
We are going to miss this campaign. It is the most unusual political campaign we have ever watched. Trump broke every rule of politics. If you have to self-fund a campaign, you are a loser. And remember that half the voters are going to be women. Misogynists and lechers need not apply. And do not broadly condemn entire ethnic groups such as Latinos, blacks or Muslims. Do not build your campaign on a pile of lies. After a while the voters can only assume everything you have to say is a lie.
The only disappointment is that nobody we would normally make a wager with would offer to bet with us. We have been offering 4 to 1 odds (to friends) against Trump since before the Republican convention. Now that the horses are at post, the wagering window is closed. Babel-on-the-Bay’s Morning Line is still at the top of its game.
