Listened to Rush for a bit today. He went on for quite some time explaining what Trump was doing with what he said. And I see here many explaining what Trump was doing, what the thought process was, what he really meant, and that it was such "genius". Problem is, when you have to go out of your way to explain, to restate, what has been said, it completely missed the intended target. Or worse, it wasn't ever aimed at a target, but just words spoken without a thought process.
Same as when someone tells a joke and no one laughs. So, then the joke is explained, and still no one laughs.
Stupid move, stupid statement that draws all attention away from the rigged Dem primaries and the crooked methods of Clinton. Off message and just another case of lost opportunity and a fool being a fool.
Nope! it takes assymetrical warfare just like this to get the complicit media and the Obama Justice Dept off their rear ends and do their job or get someone like the Russians to post it for them. Yes, it was genius. It was inexpensive, harmless and likely will get the job done.
You're kidding, right? I mean, even attempting to spin this to fit your preferred narrative isn't going to change the outcome. And that outcome is Trump painted (fairly or unfairly) as an advocate of espionage by a foreign government to interfere in a presidential election. It takes the spotlight off Hillary and puts it directly on himself. Don't believe me? Read the headlines. They are about Trump being "unqualified", "dangerous", going "beyond the pale". This is as counter productive as political rhetoric can get. Need further evidence of the foolishness of this? Check out the polls. Trump's convention bounce already gone. Even the Rasmussen poll that had been the outlier in his favor has Clinton ahead. And Clinton now up by 9 points in PA? Tell me of that genius just one more time.
