I Gotta Read My Blog More Often | November 28, 2015

I was going to write some more about Donald Trump and his talk radio message packaged for a candidate who doesn’t need a Republican donor. Instead, I came upon some old posts about the Donald Trump debate. Remember that? I sure didn’t.

Almost 4 years ago, Donald Trump tried to host a Republican debate in Iowa shown on broadcast network ION and hosted by conservative media outlet Newsmax. The participant list dwindled to Rick Santorum (desperate) and Newt Gingrich (that month’s front runner) by early December of 2011. By mid-December, Trump had decided against moderating, claiming that he was considering a third-party run. That was when he dropped his Republican registration as well.

I understand that Trump seems refreshing because he says the outrageous things that get donations cut off for other candidates. At the same time, he has to pull this off for another 11 months while he’s only been at it for about 5 so far. The first primary he loses is going to be brutal. He already badmouthed Iowa when Ben Carson managed to get ahead of him in the polls.

Much like the debate that didn’t go his way, if Trump has even a few setbacks in the primaries, expect him to badmouth the process and go third party. Or maybe he’ll go away. In either case, he’ll probably hand the election to Hillary Clinton, which he will also blame on the people who didn’t kiss his ass. Who knows? Maybe he’ll run away with the nomination and the election. Then he can just nuke the people who don’t agree with him.

  1. he’ll pks ago that the GOP old boyz network would rather see Hillary in the WHrobably hand the election to Hillary Clinton, which he will also blame on the people who didn’t kiss his ass.

    Once again I cite Rush who says that the RNC would rather have Hillary in the WH than Trump. I guess that’s the political fate of those who can’t be bought.

  2. I’m thinkin’ T has stuck his foot too deeply into the political pool to back out now w/o irretrievably damaging his brand. He’s sorta stuck on full speed ahead mode for the duration. And as the LSM-GOPe combo continues to so obviously trash him, more and more voters will give him sympathy support. He’s not my guy, but short of an armed uprising I think he might make it. Strange mood in the country right now.

  3. I definitely consider him a case of right message, wrong messenger. Trump has a lot of negative personal qualities and he’s held the opposite political position 10 years ago from the ones he holds now.

    The difference with Trump is that he corners the market on this anti-illegal, pro-intervention stance because all the other candidates need some establishment money to win the next election. Technically, Trump could self-finance a billion dollars, even though he can probably get half of that in unsolicited donations.

    However, 2010 has taught us that GOP candidates scorned have claws and they will give tepid support at best if Trump somehow had the nomination.
